    I am using viewlevel2/Wordpress 1.5.2 and I want to exclude pages from not being viewed in the view level options. I have gone as far as creating a page.php to try to fix this. If you use this plugin and have sucessfully done this or know of a way to allow my pages to be viewed with the viewlevel set I would appreciate it.

    I currently use ViewLevel 2.1.0 from http://blog.firetree.net/2005/08/25/viewlevel-20/ and WP 2.0.2 (though I also did have it running on 1.5.2). I am not sure I 100% understand you, but if you want to prevent pages from being displayed to someone with a viewlevel less than you specify, it is possible.

    Unfortunately, I don't believe the vl=1 method works for pages. Instead, under the "Write Page" screen for the post that you want to protect/prevent unauthorized viewing:
    1) Scroll down to "Custom Fields" (hit the + to expand it if need be).
    2) Under "Add a New Custom Field," type viewlevel in the key box, and your desired viewlevel (i.e. 1,2,3,etc.) into the value box.
    3) Press "Add Custom Field" button.

    That's it. Hope that helps.

    I tried doing that. I made brand new pages and made the view level * and it still made the pages set to 1 (that is my default page view. This and the vl=* method works fine for posts, however pages are unaffected by either method. Thank you.

    Hmm, odd. I've made a few changes to WP and Viewlevels, but I don't think either would cause mine to work, and yours not. The only thing I added in page.php was:

    <?php if(function_exists('vl_restricted'))vl_restricted(); ?>

    to show the little lock icon on protected pages. And the only thing I added to viewlevels.php was some code to hide "Email to a Friend" and "Print" links on protected pages.

    I wanted to update that I am now using the latest version of wordpress and view level and I still have not resolved this.

    If anyone can help me with this I would appreciate it.
