The Post Password Token plugin allows readers to access protected posts without having to enter a password by creating secret token urls for the post.
I am getting 404 not found messages when trying to use the unique URL
This is a superb plugin and works instantly. Just read the FAQ or you may be confused as to setting it up, but it is really simple. Install the plugin and configure the settings. Go to a post you want to protect and enable the password feature on the top right, entering a password of your choice. Update the page. Scroll further down below the main content and you will find a secret url to your page. No login or password required to view your post or page. Great plugin, took me a while to find this tho.
Perfect for newsletter subscribers!
I've been looking for a simple way to offer a paid for content, that does not require membership, or extensive plugins.
Here's how this plugin can offer a simple solution:
1- Create secret pages/posts with encoded URLs using this plugin.
2- Make an 'Enter exclusive content' page, also encoded listing the other encoded URLs in a table of contents link list.
All these pages are now locked from public view, but accessible from the encoded links in the 'Master' page
3- Create an ordinary 'buy exclusive content' page (not encoded)
4- Create a standard paypal button, using paypal, (no plugin required.)
5- add it to the 'buy exclusive content' page/post with instructions that this purchase will open a members area of exclusive content.
6- In the paypal section where you create the button, you can set the return page, after the completed transaction.
7- You got it! you place the encoded URL of the 'Master' Page
8- In the master page, leave instructions to 'Bookmark' the page for returning to later.
9- Small fry paid for members section, but it's easy and straight forward.
Quick question... what about RSS feeds and wordpress search? Is the encoded page removed from these?
