    I found the button to set visibility of a post to protected, so that users are required to enter a password before viewing the post. WordPress gives a default message as follows before you enter the password

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

    Password:”

    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 wordpress.com Thanks!

    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.

    I believe this is the CSS code you’re looking for:

    div.entry-content form,.center {
    text-align:left;
    }

    The message I’m pretty sure is defined in the underlying wordpress or theme files, and we do not have access to those files since this is a multi-user platform and any change to a theme would change it for everyone using that theme.

    Hi all,

    I am new to blogging. I am planning to set up a blog as my portfolio and allow only some people I give permission to view my site. Could you help me with this?

    thanks so much.

    How do I password protect a post? I cannot find it.

    A search of the new support documents for “password” brought this: http://support.wordpress.com/posts/post-visibility/
