Security in Configuration without Plugin

    There should be the ability, without loading a Security Plugin, to disable viewing of a blog without being logged in. It should be integrated into the very core of WordPress, so that I know when I check "no view without login" that I will be sent to the login screen for any attempted view without being first logged in. I realize that WordPress is probably designed to allow folks to write and have their views read by all, but not all configurations are like that. WordPress would be useful in more environments if security were to be built-in from the ground up.

    I can see that this would be useful in a closed community, but also it would be a handy switch to have during those times when whe Admin is upgrading or making site changes and testing. I have BasicAuth in my .htaccess and use it now to close my site when needed. However, a switch in WP would be more convienent.

    --Which is exactly why we have a plugin system. :)
