Social Privacy

Social Privacy is a set of open-source plugins for WordPress that restrict the read access of posts or categories to only specified registered users.

There are two ways to install the plugins that make up Social Privacy. The plugins can be installed as one set from this page, or one at a time by visiting each plugin's web page on wordpress.org (the links are on the Description page).

We recommend you install the entire set, as described here:

  1. Make sure you deactivate any existing installation of the following plugins: Category Access, Subscribe2, Private Files.
  2. Download the Social Privacy zip file containing all the plugins in the set.
  3. Extract the zip file and copy all 5 of the plugins sub-directories individually into the /wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation. Don't just copy the parent directory social-privacy; it must be the 5 sub-directorires.
  4. Activate each plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress.


Configure each plugin through the 'Settings' menu in WordPress: * Social Access Control * Subscribe2 for Social Privacy * Private Files for Social Privacy * Unique URL Authentication * Access Expiration
