    Is there a way to somehow make a page that is password protected, so anyone who wants to see it has to type a password?

    You described the method with your own words.

    Do exactly that. From the dashboard, go the the page you want to password protect, or create a new page. Select "password protect" from the available options, enter the desired password and publish the page. Now only the members or visitors you have given the password to will have access to the page. They will be prompted with a message and an "enter password" dialog when they select the page.

    I am making the assumption (oh, boy... that always seems to come back at me like a flaming boomerang), that you are using the latest WordPress version as well. 2.5.1

    Research the use of .htaccess and htpasswd.
    It isn't as hard as it first seems, but it's not something quickly explained either. With correct use of this, you can require authentication from every user before they can even view your site.

    Google and Apache have almost unlimited info on it's use.

    If you do some searching, you may even be able to locate a WordPress plugin that does it for you. I have never searched for one myself.

    Best of luck to you.

    It used to be possible using a couple of plugins prior to the 2.5 series.
    I have yet to find any plugins that do this correctly with 2.5.

    I would Imagine that it can be accomplished with php, using... I want to say.. conditional statements? But I am afraid that it is beyond my present level of creativity. I hope you find a solution that works for you.

    This looks promising. Might be worth a read.
