Password protecting posts and pages

Print Friendly

There are situations where you write a post or page but only want specific readers to read that post or page.  For example,  the post might contain student work or photos that you only want to share with the family, students or other teachers.

One option is to password protect the post or page;  any user that has the password can view the protected post or protected page.

If you want to make the entire blog to be private, only visible to specific readers,  you need to do via Settings > Reading.
