On Monday I published directions for enabling limited access to Blogger blogs. Today, by request, I’m publishing directions on how to limit access to posts and pages created in WordPress blogs. These directions will work for any blog running on WordPress including Edublogs blogs and WordPress.com blogs. I actually like the options in WordPress better than the options for doing this in Blogger because in WordPress you have the option to restrict access to specific pages and posts. Blogger does not have that same level of specificity in restriction settings.

Step 1: Create a post or a page in your blog editor. Before pressing publish click the “edit” link next to the visibility setting just above the “publish” button for your post or page.
Step 2: Select “private” or “password protected.”
Follow the two steps pictured below to edit the visibility setting on existing pages or posts.
