  • Hi,
    I would love to see a feature where you could hide an entry from anyone that doesn’t have a password. The password list would be one you could set up, like the team feature in b2. It would be blocked from anyone seeing even the title in .RSS, anything.

    This is absolutely planned.

    🙂 Glad to hear that it’s planned as it’s one of the few things that pMachine offers, that b2 doesn’t.

    i would love to see a feature like this too. would save me a lot of (planned) work-arounds…

    When I get some spare time tonight, I’m going to try implementing a hack that Michel suggested – see
    http://www.tidakada.com/board/viewtopic.php?t=1560&postdays=0&postorde r=asc&highlight=password%20protect&start=0
    I’ll let you know if I can get it working on my site or if I run into any probs. From the looks of it I can’t see why it wouldn’t work.
    Cheers,
    BC

    Let us know how it goes.

    The reason that won’t work is I run .RSS and there is a way to see not only the title but the entire blog entry in any .RSS form. I would love to have something secure like pMachine offers.

    Yeah, I realised that afterwards… I don’t think it would be that hard to hack a function together to block RSS for certain posts, but since I’m still re-learning PHP someone else will have to do it… 🙂

    A protected entry feature will possibly make the next version.

    How about a protected category feature? Or category for registered users with rank higher than x?

    I agree with “Anonymous” 😛 . WordPress already has an excellent user system. If the user levels could be utilized so taht only users above level X can view these posts, it would give personal blogs much more control..
    It’s # 1 on my “Please.. Please.. incorporate this into WP” list 😉

    ViewLevel v.1.1.2 Plugin for WordPress 1.2

    @avtmx: I installed your viewlevel.php plugin. Nice work! But I couldn’t see the downloaded “padlock.gif” because the path was wrong.
    It said “http://url.com/wp-images/padlock.gif” but should say “http://url.com/wordpress/wp-images/padlock.gif”
    So I hacked a little and changed the following line in viewlevel.php:

    $text='<img src=\''.$site_root.'/wp-images/'.$padlock_filename.'\' border=\'0\'/>'.$leveltext.$text;

    to

    $text='<img src=\'wp-images/'.$padlock_filename.'\' border=\'0\'/>'.$leveltext.$text;

    Now it seems to work, although I’m not sure if it works also for installations with paths differently configured.
