Groups Blog Protect

Description

This plugin allows to redirect visitors to a blog who do not belong to the blog’s Registered group.

The plugin is an extension to and requires Groups.

Note that the current version does not allow to specify a particular group – at least in that sense, the status of the plugin can be considered somewhat experimental.

The redirection settings can be adjusted in Settings > Groups Blog Protect :

Redirection options can be set for the blog – or for each blog in a multisite setup:

  • no redirection
  • redirect to a specific post, note that with this option the blog is shown to the visitor but only that page can be visited
  • redirect to the WordPress login

The redirect status code can be selected among:

  • Moved Permanently (301)
  • Found (302)
  • See other (303)
  • Temporary Redirect (307)
