I wish to have a private blog with access for select users but I am having problems with the privacy options. Under Blog visibility, I have checked 'I would like my blog to be visible only to users I choose' and have added the desired users. They have wordpress.com user ID's but despite this are unable to access the site.
So I invited one to join my blog as a contributor (which I don't want but there is no subscriber option), with the hope that at least this would give them access. They are able to do this but the home page constantly displays an Error 404 message. The other pages are fine and visible.
So my questions are, how do I add private users and why the 404 message?
I have read through the related issues on the forum which suggest there is a glitch here.
Is this resolved or is there a way around this?
