one of the best plugins in the WP repository
By , for WP 4.1.1

Simple and elegant, yet with some delightfully powerful extras. I've been using this plugin for years, and it just works. The developer is dedicated and keeps it updated regularly. Almost makes me weep. (High time I donated to this developer! I will!)

Almost there

This is almost a good plugin but for one aspect.

The google search engine bots will not be able to see your site.

But if someone wants a private site, I guess they already made
up their mind to NOT be VISIBLE to all, including google
search bots.

So for others who need a private site but need it to be search
engine bots friendly, this is not a good choice. Meaning this...
this plugin is not good for SEO.

Has anybody else thought about this or is it just me?

If the developer can make this plugin in a manner that it does
not block search engine bots while keeping the site private for
human users, then this is a killer plugin and should get 10 out
of 5 rating stars.

Anyways I have given a 5 on 5 because otherwise it seems to
work fine.

Hope the developer could respond with a solution.

Working as advertised with my Buddypress / Multisite installation.

I wanted a private buddypress installation with optional privacy on the blog sub sites created with WPMU's ProSite. This is the ticket!

If there was ONE MORE THING I would love to see.... the ability to limit registration with an invitation code that the registered buddypress users can send to their friends. I have seen some invite code plugins but so far none that I can seem to get to work, many are old. and I am finding lots of people asking but not finding a solution.

So, if you could add that functionality, wow! That would be awesome!

I wanted an extra blog, but a private one. Installed a fresh WordPress, installed this plugin and .... done. More options than I actually need, so this review is short.

It really works!

After you install many plugins, that did not work for what I wanted, I came to this plugin that worked perfectly.

Works great!

After trying a few other private site plugins, I gave this one a shot and it does the job perfectly. Definitely the best plugin to help lock down a WordPress!

Works, and no more

That works, that is easy to install, and do what is has to do. What to ask more ?
