Blix on 1.5 and password protected posts (2 posts)

    I have searched the archives and not found any solution to this.

    I notcied that a passowrd protected post can be accessed with a password by clicking on the category link in the sidebar. Is there a fix for this?

    Also, I see that the layout in Blix gets all screwy when a post is passowrd protected. the submit and enter password fields are practically on top of each other.

    any ideas?

    I've found the solution! Thanks to this post: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/67016

    In archives.php, replace every instance of "the_excerpt" with "the_content", as the above post says to do.

    BUT also replace every instance of "post_excerpt" with "post_content".

    By doing BOTH of these things, the password box will show up in both the category and single-entry views. The password-protected post itself will not be visible.

    Hopefully this is something that had already been figured out... but if not, I'm glad to have shared the solution :)
