  • [Sorry if someone’s answered this; I did a search and came up with nothing. Anyway…]

    I don’t know if it’s just me that this is happening to, but this is my dilemma: I have two categories on my site, public entries and password-protected entries. My problem is that the latter protected entries show up containing the full text when I click on the “password-protected entries” category. All a person needs to do to view a password-protected entry is to go to the category.

    I’ve tried to see if it’s my browser that has the problem (I use the latest version of Firefox), but I also tried to view my site on IE and still experienced the same thing. Can anyone please help? [By the way, I’m using WordPress 1.5]

  • I also realized the password-protected entries are not password-protected when viewed using the monthly archive.

    Are the password-protected entries actually password protected at the entry screen?

    Yes, they are.

    I am having this same issue… I am using the Blix theme. Does anyone know how to fix this? I have searched the forums as well, but nothing like this seems to have been solved…. help! :/

    muted: I haven’t fixed the problem, but it has to do with the Blix theme (it’s what I used when I had the password-protected problem above). Until I can fix it, I won’t be using that theme, as awesome as it is. I have already notified the theme author, but he’s probably busy, so waiting’s all we can do–or fix the problem ourselves.

    This problem is not confined to that theme. I’ve used a few themes and still have this problem. Has anyone reached any conclusions? I really need/could use such a fix.

    I’ve found the solution! Thanks to this post:

    In archives.php, replace every instance of “the_excerpt” with “the_content”, as the above post says to do.

    BUT also replace every instance of “post_excerpt” with “post_content”.

    By doing BOTH of these things, the password box will show up in both the category and single-entry views. The password-protected post itself will not be visible.

    Hopefully this is something that had already been figured out… but if not, I’m glad to have shared the solution 🙂
