Dear Leaf & Company,
I've prepared my game to share with early testers, but not ready to hit Publish, so I've set it to Restricted. I love that I can offer a password to access the download page. More recently, I've enjoyed testing how download keys work.
Unfortunately, download keys don't take people to the game's main page, it goes to a download only page I have no control over.
What bugs me, though, is that the link to the Game's Page on that key landing page does not give access to the game's page. It only gives them a chance to enter the password. Why would I want to hide the page for those with a key? Is there a way to offer automatic access to the game's page via a password bypass setting on a key? Can the page be set up to allow anyone with a key access to it without a password?
The documentation reads in such a way that I would think a key supersedes all Restricted requirements: "People who already have access for another reason do not need to enter a password." (from https://itch.io/docs/creators/access-control)
- Is it intended to work this way?
- Could documentation be clarified?
- What are the chances of altering this behavior?
Thank you for your time and attention,
