  • Does anyone know of a plug-in / hack to allow password protection of a category rather than having to password protect every post in it? (v2.5.1)

    It is proving more difficult than I thought.

  • I am aware that this request comes up many times in search but no solution has ever been suggested so I ask in hope that a recent solution has been found.

    It would also be nice to have categories in sections
    Category One
    Sub-category One
    Sub-category Two
    Sub-category Three

    Category Two
    Sub-category One
    Sub-category Two
    Sub-category Three

    … would appreciate any pointers to plugins / hacks.

    Both seem slightly strange omissions.

    Everything is fixed now on both fronts.

    Thanks for reading.

    this was fixed — on both fronts? meaning, is it now possible to password-protect categories?

    I’ve been searching around in the forums for ways to do this, but have yet to find one. this is the most recent post I see on the subject, however, so perhaps it was updated? I’d love to know, thanks.



    Yes, I would like to know too.

    yes, me too….. could you post your solution here for the rest of us – would be much appreciated 🙂

    I would like to know too.
    I think this could be a great way to attract more users to your blog.

    I have a codeblog at (on dansih) where I have a Goodie category which i would like to password protect.
    I’ve startet for a couple of months ago.
    I’m think i’m rather pro using and developing wordpress but I havn’t got a clue on how to get more users on the site. Any good sugestions? beside a password protected category.

    Regards 🙂

    Just search and found a thread in the idea section.

    Maybe if we could get some more users who want this feature someone would make it 🙂

    I would love this feature in the next WP issue!!

    We want to create areas of our website that offer a legal download service for unsigned artists that listen to our station.

    Come on WordPress massive, you can do it!!

    So if this still isn’t possible, does anyone have any idea how to do some workaround or embedding of something which would appear more or less like this:

    – Link in menu is clicked.
    – Login page with question that needs to be answered correctly.
    – Upon correct answer, list of WP posts with no further login.

    I guess this is probably only possible with a single passworded category, but maybe one could make a page with the login and link that to a hidden category. Or something. I don’t know.
