Obsidian Publish: Password protect only parts of the website/individual notes


When you use Obsidian Publish, everything you publish is visible. I would like to share a specifc set of information with different audiences.

For example, Philosophy 101 only sees notes they have access to see. Philosophy 201 only sees notes they have been given access to, etc.

In addition, sometimes I’m working on a small project and I want to share just a few notes with a friend, but I don’t want to share everything in my vault.

Proposed solution

I would like to give access to notes on a per folder basis. For example, everything in the Philosophy 101 folder has a password that is different from the Phil201 folder.

Current workaround (optional)

My current workaround is to copy and paste from Obsidian into Craft.

Of course, the other solution is to buy additional licenses and use Obsidian Publish as it is designed! I want to use Obsidian in a school context and I see something that is being worked on that might solve my problem.

Education/non-profit discount



I would love to share customer’s specific content too.

absolutely agree

+1, would be really handy

Craft is knocking it out of the park with “share to the web.” This would be amazing if something like this could be added to Obsidian Publish.
