Support » Everything else WordPress » Individual private pages?

  • Hi, I am considering WordPress to build a website for a doctor. The doctor has hundreds of patients, each of which must have acces to his own private page (and not to private pages of other patients of course). Each private page will be set up by the doctor and is read-only for the patient. The doctor will also create a username and password for each patient, so they can log in and see their own private page.

    Could someone explain how to implement this in WordPress? What is the appropriate plugin to use? (Note: this does not seem the same as a “member area” scenario, because we have many dinstinct private areas, each for a different member). Thanks a lot for any help.

  • Hi seguso,

    How about a WordPress Multisite installation and a plugin to control access to each subdomain/subdirectory. Patients could access their private page through subdomain

    Of course it goes without saying that you will really want to be careful with the security of the site due to the private nature of the data for the pages. I would also suggest seeing if the BulletProof Security plugin will work with Multisite.

    If it is literally just one page, you could use a page template that only allows administrators and page authors to view it. Set up the patients as subscribers and assign them authorship of their page.

    My main concern, however, would be meeting with data protection issues. UK laws for patient data would mean that you need to concern yourself with who has access to the server and database that the site is being hosted on. I would definitely look into the legal implications before even considering what the technical solution might be.
