Password Protected Post – Password: CrunchPress

[message_box title=”Password” color=”blue”]Password to access that post is: CrunchPress[/message_box]

The Visibility area of the Publish module is used to set who can read the post.

  • Public – The post will be visible to everyone.
  • Stick this post to the front page – The post will be “stuck” to the top of the blog’s front page. More info about Sticky Posts below.
  • Protected – The post is protected with a password you set. Any user that has the password can view a protected post.
  • Private – Posts are only visible to blog Editors and Administrators. Private posts are not visible in the Reader, feeds, or in any search. A post can be private without being password protected.

Password Protect a Post

To password protect a post, open the post for editing, click Edit in the publish module, select Protected , enter a password, click OK, and click Update Post to save the changes:

WordPress will prompt you for the password on your initial visit to a protected post. After entering the password that first time, WordPress will securely store the password with the browser you entered it with so you won’t have to enter it again.

[message_box title=”Important note:” color=”red”]Keep in mind that if you’d like to password protect the majority — or all — of your posts, and you might want to change all of them to Public in the future, you’ll need to update each post one at a time as there currently isn’t a way to bulk edit multiple posts to switch from Password Protected to Public. Instead, the best way to go about this is to set your blog to Private.[/message_box]
