Password Protect a Post Message

    "This post is password protected. To view it please enter your password below:


    I was wondering if there is any way to change this message and how to do so if it is? I am running a free wordpress account and my blog is hosted on Thanks!

  2. Please provide us a link to your wordpress.COM blog, and consider linking it in your user name as explained in the sticky, 8 Things, at the top of the forums.


  4. I believe this is the CSS code you're looking for:

    div.entry-content form,.center {

  6. Hi all,

    thanks so much.
