Make a Page Private

Description: Sometimes you would like to make an individual page private so only you and logged in users can view the content.



  1. In order to do so, please navigate to your WordPress site.
  2. Log into the Admin area and click on Pages.
  3. Click Add New.
  4. Fill out the title and content.
  5. When you’re ready to publish, look to the right hand side of the window. You will see a box labeled, Publish.
    Wordpress Publish Dialog Box
  6. In that box, you will see the option labeled: Visibility. Click on Edit.
    Wordpress Publish Options Dialog Box
  7. The box will drop with several options. From here you can choose:
    1. Public: everyone can see it
    2. Password protected: A user will need a special phrase in order to view the content. They will not need to log into the blog so long as they have the password.
    3. Private: A user must log in in order to view the page.
  8. Make the appropriate choice by selecting the radio button and click OK.
  9. When you’re done making your page, click Publish.
