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

I could be wrong, but if the option exists I’ve never seen it. If you want posts in a certain category to be protected the only way I can think of is to add a password to every post in that category. http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-visibility/#password-protect-a-post You might also find this helpful: http://en.support.wordpress.com/category-pages/#more-about-category-pages August 11, 2014 at 3:23 pm #1993231 timethiefMember No there’s no such ability.

Each article would need to be password protected individually though. Shortcode would look like this : [display-posts category="YOURCAT" posts_per_page="-1" order="ASC"] Author Posts The topic ‘Password protected category pages’ is closed to new replies.
