Using a password is one way to protect your WordPress site. There are also ways to make certain posts and pages private so that only you or the people you allow access to them can view them. In this article, we’ll explore how to make your site private and share a few helpful tips. After all, nobody wants their site to be hacked. After all, nobody wants their hard-earned money stolen.
One way to make your WordPress site private is to add a user role capability. You can add this capability to specific users, such as editors and administrators. When you add a user, he or she will receive a password, and you can change this role before saving it. However, it’s best to set up a user role with a limited number of users, as it will restrict the content that they see.
Another way to make your WordPress site private is to install a plugin called My Private Site. You can follow the instructions in a video tutorial to install and configure the plugin. If you want to make your posts private, WordPress already has a built-in privacy feature. To do so, click the visibility option in the upper right hand corner of your screen, above the blue Publish or Update button. This will make your content private to others.
After installing the My Private Site plugin, you can choose a parent or child theme and enable My Privacy Site. Then, you’re ready to go live! Don’t forget to remove it before going live, though. Otherwise, it will lose its effect when future updates are made. The plugin’s settings can be lost, so make sure you backup the site before deleting it. This can prevent a disaster and save you a lot of time.
