Private area WP

  • # March 7, 2012 at 5:08 am


    I am setting up a blog for a client, who needs certain parts of the blog to be private.

    I need to set up the blog with multiple blogrolls, some private, some not.
    I have the multiple blogrolls, I just need to figure out how to make a couple of them private, and add a log in button on a public homepage…

    Has anybody got an idea how to do this?

    I am looking into the “Absolute Privacy” plug-in, but I am not sure how to make it work…

    Right now I am considering having two wp installs on the server, but it should be possible to do this?

    Hope you can help

    If you only need to make one global set of private pages (such as every user that logs in has access to the same level of private content), you can use the WP-Members plugin or the User Access Manager plugin. Create pages that are restricted to those users that display those particular blogrolls and then you can even use a login redirect to bring members right to those pages.

    I’ll second the recommendation for the Members plugin — I used it to achieve exactly what you’re looking for on a client site.
