Have you ever thought about creating a private post just for certain groups of people? Or publish a private page that’s not being indexed by Google and other search engines? If you do, you probably want to take a look at our Protect WordPress Pages & Posts plugin.
In this article, we will walk you through the following sections:
Protect Private Content
Step 1: Once you install our plugin, you’ll see a new column called “Content Protection” under “Posts” and “Pages”. You can then selectively choose to protect any private page or post by clicking “Configure protection”.
Step 2: A popup will then appear to help you protect and manage all private access links of the protected content. Now, you can protect your private content by simply clicking on “Protect this page” button.
Manage Private Access Links
Once a page or post is protected, only authorized people can access its URL. If you want to send these content to others, you need to create a private access link, which can be accessed by anyone. There are 2 ways to do it: (1)”Auto-generate new link” and (2) “Customize new link”.
With option (1), our plugin will create a random access URL slug. You can create unlimited access links for each page or post.
With option (2), you are able to customize your access links to anything you’d like so that they will look more legitimate and meaningful.
What is more, you can automatically expiry these links by limiting the clicks or setting the expiry date.
Change Access Link Prefix
By default, your access links look something like http://ymeser.com/email-marketing/privatepup/custom-slug (in which “privatepup” is prefix). You can change this prefix on your demand under our plugin’s settings page.
Please note that a valid prefix contains lowercase English letters (a-z), numbers (0-9), dash (-) and underscore (_) only.
Set Access Permission
As mentioned above, only people who are granted permission can access a protected page or post. The others will see “No Access” page when trying to access it without permission.
You can set access permission of a page or post under popup
or under our plugin’s Settings Page.
