How Do I Create a Password Protected Page?

You can create a password-protected page in a few short steps. By default, all of your website’s pages are visible to any visitor, but there may be instances in which you would like a page to be password protected. For example, you may have Safe Environment information specifically for adults and is sensitive, or pages that are specifically for a particular ministry such as meeting minutes or music for the choir for next week’s liturgy.

In these instances, a password-protected page can help you manage who is able to view the page’s information.

Here is how to create a password-protected page:

  1. Once logged in, click on Pages or Posts in the menu on the left-hand side of the Dashboard.
  2. Click Add New or click on the page or post you desire to edit.
  3. Locate the Status & Visibility dropdown under the Page/Post Settings sidebar box on the right side of the page.
  4. Click Public next to Visibility.
  5. Change the visibility from Public to Password Protected.
  6. Type in the password you desire.
    NOTE: This password may be edited at any time.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Click Publish or Update to save your changes.
