How to Create Login/Password For A Page


#1

I created a website using Wordpress and will be setting up a “subscribers only” section of the website. So, I am looking for a way to have users provide a username/password to enter this section of the site. Is there anything within Dreamhost to do this or any other recommendations?

Much Thanks!

You can password protect the directory:

If you’re doing everything in Wordpress, you might want to take a look through the available plugins. I haven’t had a need to use it personally, but the Post Levels plugin looks like it might be on the right track.

The absolute easiest way to do this is to just password protect the posts you want to be available to members only. It is a “built-in” capability of WordPress to password protect ant post you wish. :wink:

They don’t need a “username” at all to do this - just a password.
