Token Access

Description

This plugin will limit access to the site. Only visitors with a cookie token will be able to access the public website. Visitors without the cookie will see a “coming soon” style of page.

You can customise the “coming soon” content, and you can change the way tokens work. Visit yoursite.com/?add_token to receive the token allowing you to see the site. To remove the limited access, simply disable this plugin.

By default, the token is “letmein”. So use these links:
site.com?letmein
site.com?takemeoff

This plugin is useful when you’re developing your site. You can work on your live web server without having your site open to the public.

Installation

  1. Upload plugin to your wordpress installation plugin directory
  2. Activate plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress
  3. Look at the configuration screen (found under Tools in the WordPress menu)
  4. You can change settings or customise your ‘coming soon’ content here.

Reviews

Useful plugin for restricting website access via token

I wanted to have links on Site A (authorised members only site) to send people to Site B and allow them access to it.
Without unauthorised people being able to go direct to Site B and having access.
OK so a member of Site A could get the most current token and give it to friends but, I’m sure I could run a con job to update the URL token on the private page on Site A and also in the Mysql database on Site B or something.
Good plugin.

Took me a while to find a solution so some keywords to help others find this:
Allow cross domain access to website secure token authorisation
