Password protected page

    Hi all, I’m new here and wondered if anyone has an answer to this one? I have set up a password protected page (which works fine) But what I’d like to do is allow a certain few people to able to add comments/information on this page without having to log into admin area of the site. In other words, I’d like them to be able to add information on the password protected page they haave logged into and then logout. Hope I’m making sense! Any help would be much appreciated,



    You forgot to post the complete and clickable URL for the blog inquestion starting with http://

    If you are referring to a wordpress.COM blog then what you propose is not possible >

    allow a certain few people to able to add comments/information on this page without having to log into admin area of the site

    Only the Users you formally add to the blog can create posts on the blog.

    If you are referring to a wordpress.ORG blog (And how would we know as you did not post the link? ) then you are in the wrong support forum. The support forum for those self hosting free software installs from wordpress.ORG is here > http://wordpress.orh/support/



    I’m not sure what to do as I’ve got a similar but slightly different question,

    I’ve just been invited by someone else who has a blog here to view and join their blog.

    I’ve joined WordPress, set up my own blog (not yet added any content) and even added the existing blogger to my blog.

    I’ve then tried to access her blog and been told to log in which I’ve done.

    It then tells me my password is wrong.

    I’ve tried changing the password and still get the same error message.

    I’m sure there’s a very simple thing I’m doing wrong but I just can’t work it out.

    Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you so much for your help.



    It accepts my password for my own blog so I’m really baffled to be honest.

    Sorry to be a nuisance!



    The sign-in information (including password) that you use to log-in to yourself is not the same as the password the other user has set. You must contact that users and use the “password” she created in order for you to read the pasword protected post on her blog.

    I think you will gain something by reading the user roles an the differences in access to features that are ascribed to them, as well as, the adding a user process.



    I’m also thinking that this support entry may be helpful

    What this all boils down to is that you will need to contact the other user involved in order to secure the password she set so you can read the “password protected” post.


    J’ai changé de thème la semaine dernière, je suis passée du thème Redoable Lite, au nouveau thème Motion.
    voici l’adresse de mon blog :
    J’avais sous l’ancien thème, une page avec des sous-pages protégées par mot de passe.
    Or, désormais je ne vois que la page mère, les sous pages n’apparaissent plus !
    Pouvez-vous me dire pourquoi et s’il y a une manipulation particulière à faire.
    Avec mes remerciements.
