    I'd like to see a feature whereby I can password protect a Category- so any posts to that category will require the password.
    thanks,
    Ron

    Yes, this would be a good idea. If I might expand on the concept, let's say that you want to build a list of the emails of "heavy users" of your blog, so you create one post every week that requires a password to access. These posts would be in a special category. To get the password you'd enter your email address and the password would be sent to you.

    I thought you could already do this - or may be it's just in wp 1.5?

    When writing a post youa re given the option of entering a password

    Yes, you can give a password for each post...

    I want a way to be able to set a whole category as password protected, but be able to give each user a separate username and password, as stated above.

    I'd like a form to register and be approved and THEN receive your password.

    Signed,
    wishing & hoping...
