Support » Plugin: Change Password Protected Message » Excellent support from this plugin author!

  • When I first installed this plugin it didn’t work so I wrote it in my review here. The author responded right away with helpful suggestions. After a few messages back and forth it was determined that my Theme was overriding the plugin so pipdig sent me a link to download a different version that worked perfectly with my theme. This was the most responsive and fast fix I’ve ever received from a plugin author – a free one at that! Thank you so much for the 5 star service!

    Hi @esp2013, sorry to hear the plugin didn’t work for you. After installing did you change the plugin options via Settings > Reading? If so, it may be that your theme is overriding the function as mentioned in this thread. If you need any help checking that just let me know.

    Yes I did set the options so it must be the theme. I’m running a child theme so will try copying the main theme function for password over to the child theme function.php and edit the wording there

    The only thing is that I only downloaded the plugin so I wouldn’t need to mess around with the function.php Editing that makes the pugin reduntant, unfortunately.

    That’s understandable, editing functions in themes is never much fun! Unfortunately there are some things which cannot be controlled by plugins, since the theme takes priority. However it might be possible for me to create a custom function for you. Which site is it that you’re hoping to change the message on? Which theme is it that you’re using?

    Thanks, yes there have been some conflicts with other plugins with this theme but it gives my client an easy builder she can work with. It’s a child of Divi by Elegant Themes and the page in question is here:

    The child theme functions.php is as follows:


    function my_et_enqueue_styles() {
    wp_enqueue_style( ‘parent-style’, get_template_directory_uri() . ‘/style.css’ );
    wp_enqueue_script( ‘divi’, get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . ‘/js/scripts.js’, array( ‘jquery’, ‘divi-custom-script’ ), ‘0.1.1’, true );
    add_action( ‘wp_enqueue_scripts’, ‘my_et_enqueue_styles’ );

    * ——————————————– */

    Please try deleting the plugin (if you haven’t already) and install this version. I think this should work with that theme’s specific functions. Let me know if that works or not 🙂

    Thank you, this worked perfectly. It still says Password Protected but now I am able to change the message below that. I’ll edit my rating – you have been great! 🙂

    Actually I can use css to hide the heading for that division and add html tags in the options for the plugin to replace the heading with words of my choice anyway so all is good!
