How To Password Protect a Page

If your website is in WordPress, and you have a page or a blog entry that you only want a few people to view, you can password protect the page.  The user has to enter a password in order to see the page.

  1. Edit the page.
  2. In the Publish box, you'll see 'Visbility'
  3. Click 'Edit'
    The box expands to display all the options.
    Public - everyone can see it
    Password Protected - need a password to see it
    Private - Must be logged into WordPress and have permission to see it
  4. Click 'Password'
  5. Enter the password you want.
  6. Click 'Ok' to save the changes.


Once you've logged into the page, it remembers that and won't show you the page again.  That's handy if you're using it a lot, but may give you the false impression that the page isn't password protected.
