¿Has pensado alguna vez en crear una entrada de blog sólo para amigos íntimos o familiares? ¿O publicar una entrada sólo para editores en su sitio de WordPress? Como plataforma de publicación de contenidos, WordPress viene con algunas opciones básicas de visibilidad de contenidos que la mayoría de los principiantes pasan por alto. En este artículo, le mostraremos cómo crear una página o entrada protegida por contraseña en WordPress.

Al escribir entradas, hay una opción llamada Visibilidad, que se establece en Pública por defecto. Si haces clic en Editar, verás opciones como Protegido con contraseña y Privado.

Making posts Private or Password Protected in WordPress

Sólo tienes que hacer clic en Protegido con contraseña para añadir una contraseña a tus entradas. De este modo, solo los amigos, familiares o usuarios con los que compartas esta contraseña podrán ver la entrada.

Una entrada privada en WordPress es visible solo para usuarios conectados con el perfil de Editor o Administrador en WordPress.

El mismo truco funciona también para proteger con contraseña una página en WordPress.

Ocultar completamente las entradas protegidas por contraseña de la página de inicio y de los archivos

Todas tus entradas protegidas por contraseña pueden aparecer entre el resto de tus entradas en la página de inicio, o en los archivos de tu sitio. Si quieres ocultarlas completamente, utiliza este código en el archivo functions.php de tu tema o en un plugin específico del sitio.

// Hide protected posts

function exclude_protected($where) {
	global $wpdb;
	return $where .= " AND {$wpdb->posts}.post_password = '' ";

// Where to display protected posts
function exclude_protected_action($query) {
	if( !is_single() && !is_page() && !is_admin() ) {
		add_filter( 'posts_where', 'exclude_protected' );

// Action to queue the filter at the right time
add_action('pre_get_posts', 'exclude_protected_action');

Eso es todo. Tus entradas protegidas no aparecerán en la página de inicio ni en los archivos del sitio. Puedes enviar la URL de la entrada a los usuarios que tengan la contraseña.

    Once enter the password in on the password-protected page and it displays the protected information, how can I log out again to see what the page looks like to non-logged-in visitors?
    Thank you

  3. Noreen says

    I have set the Blog page to password protected. The site is
    It still is visible! Had a friend test from a cell phone. Visible there too.
    Is there an additional setting that I am overlooking?
    I am expecting to see a message and password section but the test posts are completely visible.
    Thanks for your insights!

      Hi Noreen,

      The blog page is a place holder to display your WordPress blog posts. Unlike regular WordPress pages which show page content, this page shows your blog posts list. Normally, the WordPress password protect feature works on the content of a post or page. However, a blog page has no content of its own. This is why before the password protection can kick in, the blog posts get displayed.


  4. Mary Ann says

    I have password protected a pages (and children pages…not posts). I want it to prompt the user to reinsert the password when they leave the page…
    I saw that you can set the post_password_expires to 0 but where would I do it for a page?

  5. Ben says

    My password protection is not working. It keeps referring back to the password prompt. Yes i have the correct password. Any ideas?

  6. ellen says

    I made sometime ago a Password protected post, but I can’t remember the password.

    Can you help me with this ?

    thanks in advance

  7. Justin says

    Is there a way to change the default text to these password protected pages? I would like to leave a link in this text if it’s possible?


  8. Stephanie says

    Hi, I use password protection for a specific page. However, whenever I use the password to access the page, a pop-up window appears and wants my admin credentials. How can I make this issue disappear. That shouldn’t happen. I used passwort protection before and it worked fine, but now it doesn’t anymore.

  9. Mark says

    I have pages not posts that are password protected. Being pages i have no issue with them showing up in archives etc. I have them on my menu. I want only the main page not any of its children to show up in my custom menu until the user logs in. Is that possible?

  10. Mark Gason says

    the default WP expiry of the login is 10 days!! That is not much use on a private computer. I found if I used this plugin ‘Protected Posts Logout Button’ and added the logout button to every page with the password it logged out of all of them when I clicked one. It also allows setting auto logout time/cookie expiry. So I set 30 minutes in case a user does not logout.

  11. Ian says

    Static page – I set visibility to “password” and set a password. Worked a treat for a few weeks. In the last couple of days when entering password page results to “Forbidden”. Password is correct. have disabled Plugins, activated default themes and still same result – cannot access password protected content.

    Any thoughts…

    Is this a server host issue or WP issue?

  12. Naomi says

    I tried this and find the following error: when someone wants to use it, they fill in the password (on a page) and they are redirected to the captcha and directed to my wordpress login in. That should not be the case? I do not understand this.

  13. Sean Vandenberg says

    Hi, interesting – I’ve never seen this before (I don’t think!). …Will this be bad for SEO purposes? Can search engines still crunch the content?

  14. Maryam says

    So this was pretty cool – it protects the page. I enter the correct password, and the page shows up fine. Now, when I Refresh the page, it still shows up. When does the password prompt come up again?

  15. Justin says

    I am unable to access the private blog from my iphone as it only allows me to type the password in capital letters, yet my password is all lowercase.
    Also any text entry like subscribe box is all in caps too.

    how can I resolve this apart from changing the password to all caps.


  16. Thomas Stahl says

    I think it’s a great feature. How can I open the password protected Page with a Query String? So I can send a Link to my friends. Thanks for any ideas.


  17. Zeeshan says

    Hello sir,
    i added a link in my site and i want that whenever anybody click on in there then by Clicking this link will bring up a password prompt, if user successfully enters password they are allowed to access a password-protected page.

    Thanks in advance

  18. mdfaizan says

    is there any way to make it available to logged in users. By default even a logged in admin cannot see this password protected post.

    Is there any way we can make it available to all logged in users?
