Privacy Settings

  1. I would like to lock my blog with a password so that I can allow only some readers to access my site.

    When I look in the "Privacy Settings" page, the only option that I see locks it with a password that only your WordPress "friends" with a password can access. I would like to allow readers who aren't necessarily WP users to read at my blog.

    Thank you in advance!

    The blog I need help with is oneofthebunch.wordpress.com.

  2. As far as I know, as long as those readers have the password to access your posts and/or pages they don't necessarily have wordpress account(s).

  3. No: a password is for individual protected posts or pages in an otherwise not private blog.

    Setting the whole blog to private means it's only visible to users you specify. There's no password in this case: you write their usernames; and yes they have to be wp.com users. (They don't need to open a blog, just register an account so they can get a username.)
