Password Protect Page Template

  • I have a page that I want to password protect, but it is based on a page template that pulls in all the data to be displayed outside of WordPress, not from the post content. When I password protect the post, it does nothing to protect the content. How can I tie into the WordPress system to protect that content?

    BUMP!

    i was hoping that get_the_content() would return false if the page is password protected. This way we can determine when to show a password prompt.

    I’d really like to be able to tie into the password system.

    i hear ya… I’m having the same problem… I started working on a plugin that will enable a conditional tag so that this is possible

    I know that it is possible but haven’t been getting anywhere with it…

    Turns out I don’t need to write a plugin that does this… The conditional function that you want to use is…

    post_password_required()

    Basically, this returns a true value if you are entered the password on the page or if the cookie is set.

    It took some digging but, this helped me out a great deal…

    Could it be something like…

    if(!empty($post->post_password) and $_COOKIE['wp-postpass_' . COOKIEHASH] != $post->post_password)){
     // here what to tell the visitor: it's a protected page blah
    }
    the_content(); // here we ask WP to ask for a password, content should be blank
    
    if (isset($_COOKIE['wp-postpass_' . COOKIEHASH])
     and $_COOKIE['wp-postpass_' . COOKIEHASH] == $post->post_password){
      // here it's the protected stuff...
    }

    (taken from wp support forum)

    Hope it’s clear or helpful…

    In case you are looking to modify the generic “This post is password protected. To view..” form, you can add a filter into the functions.php file, like so:

    <?php
    add_filter('the_password_form', 'custom_the_password_form');
    
    function custom_the_password_form() {
      $output = 'YOUR CUSTOM FORM AND TEXT HERE';
      return $output;
    }
    ?>

    You can view the original code in post-template.php on lines 1132 – 1141.
