  1. Hi All,

    I have a private blog with private posts.

    What exact steps have to be taken to authorize others to read my posts? I just want them to be able to read, not anything else. I am having problems navigating WordPress' documentation.

    Thanks so much.

  2. Blogs are set up for public viewing ancd commentary so if you wish to have a private blog you must change your blog settings. You have to register those that you want to be able to see your blog on your blog on your Dashboard -> Users -> Authors and Users page. http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/05/17/how-do-i-add-more-authors-users-to-my-blog/

    Then the people you have registered on your blog also have to register with wordpress.

    You also need to set your discussion page to dis-allow comments. -> Dashboard -> Options -> Discussion (examine the checkboxes and adjust then to reflect your choices then click "update options" to save.

    These are related threads from the FAQs blog
