    hi. I have a category in my blog that I would like to make private to the public b/c it will be used for personal reasons. I do not want anybody not registered to be able to view the category. is this possible? wordpress seems like a very good blogging tool but if i can't do this i'm afraid i won't be able to use it. thanks very much!!

    the limit categories plugin will let you select what is accessible to guests, and for each role.

    Actually that plugin doe NOT do what you want. It just limits the categories the users can post to.

    See if you can find here anything that helps you:
