    Hi,or how can I deactivate the single page?

    The question is very important for me too!

    yes, I got the same problem how do we restrict access for everyone except members to see them. Has anyone found a solution to it.

    this may be a help but I can’t figure where to place it – what folder does treepress read on the way to output information on /root/member/ access by public

    Hi Sam.
    when you create custom post type, Right Hand side under publish->click edit Visibility you will see Radio Button option password Protected, set the password for the custom post type here…

    I Tried that but When you visit the site kemkemian.com/member the person name still appears. there should be a way to protect everything in that folder of all members to be only accessible to logged in members.

    Hi Sam,
    By default WordPress only hide the content of post and this functionality is added to the the plugin. By default it does not hide the title of post .

    Irfan, what about using the .htaccess file to protect the folder.

    AuthType Basic
    AuthName “My Protected Folder”
    AuthUserFile /www/sites/5ce/448/www.domain.com/.htpasswd
    require valid-user

    only thing is where would the folder be so we can put the file there?
