Rolling Out of Beta: Multiple Usernames and Password Protection for Individual Posts and Pages

We are so excited to announce that the multiple usernames and password protection for individual posts and Pages is now out of Beta and all subscribers should see this option.

To quickly recap, with this feature you can now create unique usernames and passwords for visitors to access your site.

This is important because once you set up these usernames, you can restrict each post and Page so that only specific usernames can view the content.  This is particularly useful for blogs that restrict access on a pay to view plan, but it can be just as useful to keep personal posts from being seen by specific people.  The use for the feature is virtually unlimited!

To start adding individual username and passwords to your site, just go to the Settings > Basics tab. We have more information on this in the Knowledge Base.

We hope you love this feature as much as we do!  Please let us know any feedback you may have either in the comments section here or by opening a help ticket.
