    hi all - just wondering... is it possible to restrict access to certain areas of my blog to registered users only?

    I've only just signed up to a hosting deal so have yet to have a play but I'd love to know this before I start.

  2. You can password protect certain pages with the build in WordPress feature.

    not sure that would work unless it generated an email that sent the password to the person registering?

  4. You;re right, the built in option is a very simple one and wouldn't work that way.

    I'm not familiar with membership plugins, but these do exist.
    Check out these plugins - http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=members&sort=

    and here's a review of some other ones.

    Perhaps one of these will work.
