For some reason or other, you might want to allow access to certain posts only to certain people. You can use password-protection on Pages and Posts, but those need to be set individually.
It’s far simpler to just write a Post, specify a category and all posts in that category are password protected. Or you might decide to protect a lot of old posts.
Imagine a family blog where certain posts are only visible to people who know the birthday of your first child, or remember your pet’s name.
Cat-Pass is not for super-sensitive information, it’s for casual use.
Installation is simple:
- Download Cat-Pass
- upload cat-pass.php to yoursite/wp-content/plugins directory
- In your WordPress Dashboard go to Plugins -> Install Plugins
- Search for Cat-Pass
Installed this plug in but get all sorts of ‘cannot modify header information’ errors on front page – and it’s blocking me from getting in the back end.
Currently locked out of the site – any help hugely appreciated !
