Hi, I’m going to show you how to password protect a page on your WordPress website.  If you’re a photographer, this is especially useful when you want to share photos with your clients but not necessarily the entire world. Read to learn how? Let’s get started.

First, log in to your WordPress website. Click ‘Pages’. Click ‘Add New’.

Type in the name of your new page. Then, of course, add the content to your page with text or images. If you look to the right you’ll see this visibility area. Click ‘Edit’, click ‘Password Protected’, and then type in the password you want someone to have to type in to view the page (of course, don’t use that password: password123). Then, click ‘OK,’ and then ‘Publish.’

And let’s take a look at our page to make sure it does have password protection. And it does. Let’s make sure our password works. And it looks like it worked.

Thanks for watching.

We have used Shawn at Graticle Design on several web design projects and have always been extremely pleased with the end results. One of the fantastic things about working with Shawn is that he asks all the right question about our company, product and our customer base. Then, from these very insightful conversations, he is able to rapidly create a design that always feels fresh and new, as well as being something that completely envelops all of our needs.

Every time we work with Shawn, he exceeds our expectations. This is saying a lot because after working on several projects with him, we have very high expectations of his ability to make each and every design special, unique and ultimately profitable for us.
