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.

Need more help? Give us a call at (360) 450-3711 or visit our website at graticle.com and we’ll be glad to help.

Thanks for watching.

Wow, what can I say?

Working with Shawn and the team at Graticle has made launching our website not only easy and stress-free, but fun! Our website looks wonderful, it looks beautiful and clean and is easy to for clients to navigate and order products. I love that it is mobile friendly and formats great on the phone. They really took the extra steps to make sure it came out exactly how we wanted and even made videos explaining step by step and page by page how to change or add to the website including changing text and images, adding products, etc. Shawn has made this a wonderful experience and helped create a great site that accurately represents our business. Not only will I recommend Graticle to other companies but also plan on having them do more work for us in the future.

Hi Shawn,

I would like to thank you for the superior service you have provided for us recently. Even though we just started working together, I am impressed with your service, knowledge and timely response to our needs. As with all technology, there is always some little things that seem to go wrong and we did not experience this on our project.

Even if you didn’t know the answers at first, you took the time to get the answers and provide us with solutions that got us up and running.

I would highly recommend Graticle to anyone looking for a capable and reputable organization to develop WordPress websites and Graphic Design. We have several other client projects on the horizon and I look forward to continue working with you in the future.

Thanks again,
