    how do i do that? They are not showing up on the sitemal.xmp and I don't see an option to enable them in the settings.

    This is not supported at the moment, and I don't have any plans to add this feature since Google wouldn't see any content anyway?

    boo...is it a lot of work to create an option to toggle this :(

    cuz it'll really help me. google might not see the content, but the post entry still would show up and help seo in that extend...

    Actually, without any content visible to Google, the post itself would rank very low, which would be detrimental to your overall SEO.

    And also since all password protected posts look exactly the same to Google, it would probably been seen as duplicate content.
