Preventing access to all previous users of blog without deleting it.

  1. Hi,

    I wanted to know if there is a way to prevent access to my blog ( but keep and make it available to me and only selected users under a different name. For example, if I decided to to change the name of the blog and in effect the URL to "Timothy Guillen's portfolio", would this be the easiest way to do it?

    The reason I'm asking is because I'd like to keep my blog so that I can continue to include it on my resume, but if I decide to work elsewhere, I'd rather not continue to provide access to all of the previous users but still be able to view it online so that I can continue to include it in my resume.

    In essence, is there a blog portfolio tool of some sort whereby if one creates several blogs, they can be hosted on one particular web site?

    Ultimately, if no such tool/site/plug-in exists, is the best way to achieve this by changing the name of the blog ( I'd like to prevent access to and then creating a separate blog titled Timohy Guillen's portfolio with a link to the old blog that will have a different name in order to prevent all previous users access to it without deleting it?

    I hope this all makes sense.

    Thank you in advance.

  2. Changing the name of the blog doesn't change who has access to it; if it's public, anyone can read it. If you don't remove the users on the Users page, they will all still have the level of access they had before.

    If you want to prevent all access including reading, set the blog to Private and delete everyone but you on the Users page. If you just want to prevent writing/posting access, delete everyone but you on the Users page.
