    I really miss the original version of this plugin. I want to completely (and I mean completely) lock down my sites while I work out bugs, etc., but now anyone can land on the home page whether I want them to or not. Is there any way to have it behave like it did before?

    Awesome, thank you!

    But I liked Absolute Privacy a lot for its very simple lockdown =( I'd like if it retained the option to lock everyone out.

    This plugin retains the ability to lock everyone out. That is the main purpose of this plugin.

    I don't mean to sound unappreciative of the update to the plugin, I've loved it since you first offered it.

    The new version doesn't lock anyone out of the home page, as "Allowed Pages" uses "0" as default to show the home page only...and that means I don't have a way of saying "don't show any pages." I can lock them out of everything past the home page but in this regard anyone can see the blog, where before they needed credentials to even know it was there. It used to be perfect for allowing my friends to see the work I was doing for them without unveiling it to anyone else.

    If there's a trick to bypassing this, please let me know. I'll happily hack away at my copy to make it work the way it used to.

    I just figured it out. Leaving it blank allows you to lock the whole blog. That's not in the documentation but it certainly works.

    Problem solved, thank you!
