private web log

  1. pgeorge

    I expect to be blasted here because it has already been dealt with, but a quick search didn't turn anything up.

    Anyway... I wanted to have a wordpress weblog that was private, i.e. no anonymous browsing, but also supported the anonymous access necessary for the RSS feeds (while returning no content if it was anonymous). Hard to do with filesystem permissions and I also didn't want the dual login prompt (once from the browser and once from wordpress).

    Could not find any settings to do this in the options and it appeasr that, apart from not being able to post anything, an anonymous user can read all they want. As we wanted a weblog to discuss potentially awkward material this was not desired.

    I have managed this with a few hacks but wonder if there is an add-in or correct way via the GUI to do it. Otherwise of course I will be staring at code again after the next upgrade.

    BTW - yes to the "moderated registration" idea. I too would like to have to avoid manually entering all the staff but not have juist anyone register without authorisation.

    I have similar needs, in that I'd like a Front Door public blog, and a Back Door private area for contributors and editors to discuss articles before they get moved to the public area. It would be very helpful if you could configure certain Categories as "Hidden" so the would not show up for users who don't need to see them. Even better would be to be able to assign access levels to categories so regular subscribers saw just the articles and categories they had access to and contributors and editors could do their magic behind the scenes and then "push" an article out by lowering its access.

    This is marked implemented. Can someone note what version of WP (or even what plugin) and/or where it's documented.

    I second this -- how and/or when was this implemented?
