Choose a single password to protect your entire wordpress site from the public and search engines
Choose a single password to protect your entire wordpress site. Only visitors who know the password will be able to access your wordpress site. This is a great tool for someone setting up a development version of a wordpress site or anyone else looking to hide their site from the public, search engines, etc...Set your site-wide password by going to Settings > Hide My Site > Set Your Password. If you want to disable password protection uncheck the box at Settings > Hide My Site > Enable Password Protection.
You can choose how many days you want the user to stay logged in by going to Settings > Hide My Site > Duration.
Note, this plugin does not currently work with WP Engine hosting because they automatically cache your pages for you. If you use WP Engine or another host that auto-caches, try contacting them directly and ask them if they can deactivate the auto page caching on your site. If you are using a caching plugin and you notice that it conflicts with Hide My Site, try deactivating the plugin and see if that resolves it. Note that deactivating a caching plugin does not always purge the cache. Before you deactivate the caching plugin, first go to the plugin admin page and turn off caching from there.
