    I wrote a post, ticked ‘keep this post private’, assigned it a password and it is not showing up when I am logged out. I can’t see it in either firefox or IE. I can see the post when I visit my site while I am logged in. It says ‘protected: celebration’. I set the publication date to yesterday, thinking there may be a lag time, but no joy.

    Private posts and password protected posts are different — Private posts will not been accessible to logged out viewers. If you want to make your post accessible to these viewers, just password protected, you will need to uncheck the private option, but leave the password setting in place.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I read about private and protected, but it wasn’t explained so neatly and I was confused about this.

    Hmmmmm. OK now I know how to properly set up a protected page or post. My problem now is that when I go onto my blog while I am logged out, I can get into the protected page/post, but I can not leave a comment.

    My goal is to write a page accessible to a few people that I will give the password to, and then let them leave comments that the other people with access can read.

    Thanks in advance,

    PS I did tick the box that says ‘allow comments’
