Feature request: External Preview links should work only if you're logged in

Hi, me again!

Is it possible to make the preview links work only for someone who is logged in to the EE CP? My client needs some security to prevent prying eyes (and not just security through obscurity of the URLs!). Perhaps this might benefit from a new option in BWF settings to turn it on or off?

    Hi Alex,

    Currently, the external preview feature turns off the 'logged into CP' required function so that you can send links to clients etc without them having a login. We'll look at possibly adding this option in the future.

    Ah wait, you're right, turning external previews off does mean non-logged users can't see the preview pages. I must have got my test wrong, sorry.

    Everything is fine, nothing to see here... move along...
