Limit of viewers for private blogs?

  1. Hello,

    Just to be sure: is there a limit of viewers for a private blog? From the support pages I understand, that for private blogs I can invite unlimited viewers.
    But from Forums and other WP-users, it seems sometimes that there is a limit of 35 viewers for private blogs... Is that so? Can somebody please give me a straight answer?
    It´s kinda confusing....
    Thanks a lot,
    A.

  2. Ok, it seems like I found an answer. For those who ask themselves the same question, here is what you´re looking for:

    Adding Viewers to a Private Blog
    If you want others to be able to view your private blog (and add comments, if you’ve enabled them) you’ll need to invite them to be a viewer. http://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/#adding-viewers-to-a-private-blog
    After they accept the invitations to become viewers you can change their user roles > http://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/#changing-user-roles
    Please try removing the viewer from the list and then re-invite that person as an author.

  5. thank you timethief !

  6. You're welcome. :)

  7. Excuse me for jumping on this thread, but timethief I have seen your expertise with other questions on these forums and can't quite find my answer.

    In this same vein of private blogs; I want a private blog where I can invite followers so that they can receive email notification when I add a new entry. Is that possible or are my only options to invite them to be a contributor to my private blog, which makes them create a wordpress ID and then add a widget for them to receive RSS feeds? I am revitalizing my blog because before, that is all I could do and people had sooooo much trouble getting into my blog and then couldn't follow it and would forget to come back and look. I know I can make it public and they can follow with no problems, but I want to remain private. TIA!!

  8. All readers of private WP.com blogs have to have WP.com accounts, but you don't need to start a blog, you can just register an ID.
