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.

Thank you for a great experience in developing our new and classy web site. Your skills in visually organizing a quality site for our Show had already paid dividends in numerous comments from carvers and guests attending our show.
