Support » Fixing WordPress » WordPress password protected my posts. I don't want that.

  • So I messed up my blog (QBobble). I had an SQL backup, fortunately, so I reinstalled WordPress, and imported my SQL database.

    Unfortunately, it password protected all of my posts. I know that I can manually unpassword protect them by going to Posts < Edit and edit the visibility to “public”, but I don’t want to do that to all of my posts, I want to do it to all of them at once. How can I do that? Someone said that you can do it in Bulk Actions > Edit, BUT changing the status to “public” in bulk actions doesn’t work. Any ideas?

    It also got rid of the excerpts for each post. They now just read NULL. Is there a way that I can get it to add those back automatically?

    Thanks all!

  • Hi howlermiller,
    Can you check you database in wp_posts check post_password field to see if you have any values in that collumn, if you do just query your database and update the collumn with no value.

    AhHA! Thank you! post_password was set to NULL, and apparently that messed it up.
    The excerpts are still NULL though. Is there any way I can get those back?
