    I deleted the protect-old plugin but the passwords are still in place. Does anyone know what I can do to reveres this plugin? I tried reinstalling the plugin - activating it - then deactivating it - still doesn't work. I would appreciate any help. I did a search on this topic and couldn't find anything.

    What happens if you edit the post and 'clear' the password?

    Thanks for responding! It works great, problem is I've been blogging since December 2004 and have over 400 posts that I would have to do this to manually. Any ideas?

    Sure, build a SQL query to clear the password fields for all your posts!

    Sorry, but that's all I can think of at the moment. Hang on and hopefully someone brighter will come by ;')

    cant really do anything in the way of a query that will work right out of a paste w/o knowing:

    1. what table the password field is in (wp_posts?)
    2. what the name of the actual password field is

    But..assuming the password field is inside wp_posts..

    UPDATE wp_posts SET password_field = '';

    ..will work

    whooami - thanks for your reply too. Gosh, I'm just a bloggin' mommy who has no clue where to find the information you requested. Thanks anyway for your help. I guess I have no choice but to manually delete all 400+ passwords.
