Ability to lock your website home page

Websites on the Sporty platform allow you to have more than one person with a login if you wish. It is common for organisations to have more than one person administering the website, and it is important that each person has their own login to avoid tripping over one another.

In some instances, organisations have put a lot of thought and design effort into the layout of their home page, only to discover that an enthusiastic new administrator has logged in and rearranged the content to the extent that the original design effort is lost.

To protect you from this, there is the ability to ‘lock’ a website home page. This features still allows you to change and manage all the content within the widgets on the home page, but it prevents administrators from inadvertently deleting widgets or sections. All pages other than the home page can still be fully modified as usual. 

The lock can easily be added or removed at no cost by emailing

This is now included as a standard feature for all sites where there has been a well-considered home page design effort, or where the organisation has engaged our graphic designers to help them.

It's easy to identify when a home page is locked because it displays a red bar across the top of the page when you’re logged in, that states ‘Page layout is locked, contact to unlock’ like in the image below.
