Support » Fixing WordPress » Member Only Area – setting up a password

  • We have our site under WP 2.5 up and running. We have our public access area which works good and wanted to have a Members Only area for sharing internal business amongst our members. Looks like this:
    Public 1
    Public 2
    Public 3 … etc
    Members Only
    Members 1
    Members 2
    Members 3 … etc.

    The Members Only area was supposed to have protected sub-pages under it for all the various Members Only topics. I thought that by passwording the Members Only “switchboard” we’d be able to safeguard the child/sub-pages under it. Apparently I’ve not done it correctly because we discovered that anyone can call up those Members Only sub-pages even though you get prompted for the password for the switchboard page. IOW, people can blow right past the switchboard. What did I miss in the tutorial on child pages and providing or limiting access to them only by way of the switchboard? How do I limit access to Members 1, 2 & 3 without having to password each of them?

    Thank You.
