Smart Passworded Pages Plugin

Here is a demonstration of how to use the smart passworded pages.

If you are unfamiliar with using passwords in WordPress, you might want to read this page first:  http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Password_Protection

This plugin doesn’t add the ability to add passwords in posts.  WordPress does that all on its own.  You can see that here:

On the right hand side of the page editing screen in WordPress, you can change the visibility to Password protected and enter in a password.

 

This plugin does make the password handling smarter and enhances it so that you can enter one password on a parent page and gain access to all the children pages using that password.

If you don’t know what children pages or sub-pages are, you might want to read about it here:  http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages#Creating_Pages

Now you can test how this plugin works.  Pay attention to the fact that you can enter multiple passwords on a single page and then end up in different locations within your website.  Test how it works on these pages:
