After several recent tests released via comments in my old WP-Password blog entry, I’ve now released version 0.6 for testing.
WP-Password 0.6:Â http://broome.us/wp-password/wp-password_0_6.zip
For those new to the latest work, it’s a complete rewrite of the plugin.Â It now uses a set of numbered rules that are much more precise and lack the ambiguity (read: ability to circumvent) of the old system’s Regular Expression conversion & comparion.
Another new feature: Where the old (before 0.5) plugin could only protect specific urls (and even than had some problems…) the new one protects the content of protected urls wherever it appears — homepage, archive pages, rss feeds… Should be everywhere.
Here’s a preview of the admin:
This isn’t quite ready for release on the WordPress Plugins site yet.Â I have a few things I want to add before that… Feel ree to add your own requests via comment.
- Let users choose their own “This content is password protected, please Log In to view it” text.
- Add a decent un-install.Â Or just ANY uninstall, since it doesn’t try at all.
- Find a better way to make visitors log in than hacking a copy of wp-login.php
- Add password-protection by Category and/or Tag, not just words in permalink urls.
As you see, I don’t think this is done.Â But it bears some testing.Â Please let me know if you find any problems or have any suggestions or questions.
