Network Privacy

Description

This plugin adds 2 privacy options in a single install and 3 in a network install. In a network install the network administrators (Super admins) have the option to set the privacy setting for the entire network. When the privacy is set for the entire network, the extra privacy options are not shown on individual site’s Settings -> Privacy.

Features

In a single site WordPress install adds the following privacy options:

  • I would like my site to be visible only to Site subscribers.
  • I would like my site to be visible only to Site administrators.

In a WordPress network activated on an individual site adds the following privacy options:

  • I would like my site to be visible only to Registered network users.
  • I would like my site to be visible only to Site subscribers.
  • I would like my site to be visible only to Site administrators.
  • I would like my site to be visible only to Site contributors (and above)

When Network Activated or in the mu-plugins folder in a WordPress network adds the following:

  • A privacy selector in the Network Admin -> Settings page to allow individual site privacy or the 3 above across to network.

To Do

  • Update the robots.txt process to use the constants/functions for wp-content, wp-includes and wp-admin directories (in case those items are in a non-standard location, or the install is in a subdirectory)

FAQ

Why did I receive an email from Google saying the my CSS and JS files are blocked?

By default, this plugin generates a robots.txt file that blocks bot access to the following directories:

  • ''
  • '/wp-admin'
  • '/wp-includes'
  • '/wp-login.php'
  • '/wp-content/plugins'
  • '/wp-content/cache'
  • '/wp-content/themes'
  • '/trackback'
  • '/comments'

If you are having issues with this, you can filter the list of directories that are blocked in the robots.txt file by using the ra_network_privacy_robots_disallow filter. If you want to allow access to specific directories or files, you can also use the ra_network_privacy_robots_allow filter to populate the array of allowed items.

Reviews

Every staging site should have this

Piet Bos

Golden oldie that I use on all my staging sites. Although originally developed for Multisite, it works brilliant on standalone sites too, for which I mostly use the plugin.
