This wish has been granted

Description

I wish there was a password module! Basically, the syntax would be like this:

[[module Password password="sssshhhh" button="Enter the password"]]

My //amazing// super incredible secret!

[[/module]]

The page would render like normal, but everything inside the Password module would not be displayed. Instead, a text-box and button (much like the NewPage module) would be displayed. Typing in the correct password would make the hidden source code render.

This whole idea is basically just like the Collapsible block, except the user needs to type in the correct password for the content to be displayed.

This is not supposed to be a security feature, this is just supposed to be an interface feature. It matters not that the user may be able to view the page source code, because that's an option that can easily be blocked.

Why?

This would be useful for:

  • Viewing privileges (i.e. give certain users access to "non-public" information)
  • Trivia games;
  • Fun!
