Simple Site Lockdown

Description

Need to make sure that a site is private for all but the administrators? Just activate this plugin.

There are no settings, no configuration – it just forces anyone that isn’t an admin to go to the login page. They won’t see anything of the site at all. Great for hiding sites really quickly.

Installation

It’s recommended that you install this plugin by searching for it in your WordPress Dashboard.

  1. Go to Plugins > Add New
  2. Search for “Simple Site Lockdown”
  3. The first result should be this plugin, check the author is ‘philipjohn’ to double check
  4. Click Install Now
  5. Click Activate Plugin

Installing any other way carries the risk that it’s from a source which could have injected malicious software into the plugin.

FAQ

Can I allow non-admins to view my site with this plugin?

No, this is only for admins. If you want to allow non-admins in, I’d recommend using the more feature-rich Maintenance Mode plugin instead.

Reviews

Works great

Although it has not been updated in 2 years I still use this plugin on a regular basis as I create new websites for clients and it is simply simple to use and works without a hitch.
