How to Create a Password Protected Page in WordPress

“How do I create a password protected page in WordPress?” That’s the question that was racing through my mind this past week while I was working on a few special new things for you. I have worksheets and tutorials and all sort of great stuff on the horizon for you.

All because I love ya!

and I want to see you succeed. I do a lot of freelance work and lately I’ve been mega busy writing resumes, working on About pages, copywriting websites, and developing business strategy for a few lot of folks. I’ve had to turn a few people away and y’all, that breaks my heart. I want to be able to help you all, but I can’t. That’s why I decided to put together a super secret special page full of worksheets and tutorials for you to refer to as needed as you build and grow your own identity. Cool, right?

So why is it a password protected page?

Because it’s a super secret special page and it’s only for my subscribers. Bummer. I know. Lucky you though because all you have to do is subscribe to have access when it launches and you can subscribe in the pink bar that hovers down there at the bottom of the screen? See it? Yeah. Enter your info there and you’ll be in-the-know for all the good stuff I’ve got coming up. That page is password-protected so you’ll only get in if you have the code. I’ll e-mail you the code. That’s why I need your 4-1-1.
