thanks for this domain lock widget (just purchased). It looks like it will be very helpful.
Quick question. I read some of the other comments and want to make sure I do this right. I will be using a TOC – so I need to set the widget to display for rest of project? Correct?
Also, I will be using an aggregator to pull several projects together. Will the domain lock need to be on each project within the aggregated project?
Thank you for buying.
Yes you should set the widget to “Display for rest of project” if you are using it in a project with a TOC. The widget would also need to be inserted in every Captivate project file if you are using it in a aggregated project.

If I wanted to specify localhost as the domain, what would I type in? I tried typing in “localhost” but it didnt work.
It works properly from websites though
So “localhost” does not work? That’s odd – can you get in touch through the contact section and we’ll figure out what is wrong.
