    Hi guys

    When you password protect a post like i want to do every week the post doesnt show up in any site activity or the individuals blog?

    Is there a way round this?

    I am confused by what you are asking. You have password protected a post but then you want it to show up in the site activity and on the regular blog posts listing. This is just not how this WP feature works.

    You choose the “Password Protect This Post” option to make a given blog post private. This means that only people with the correct password can see the post, can read it.

    What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

    The way it works on my other wordpress sites is that the password protected posts still appear on the site and in the heirachy of posts but when you click it it asks for a password before you see the rest of the information.

    Ive done this with my buddypress site and password protected posts dont appear, not even in the members members blog page?

    An example on my site

    http://www.lovehatemedia.com

    if you click on the “test” post it asks you for a password before you can view the post

    whereas when i do this on my buddypress site it wont even show the post, not in site activity or in the authors blog section of their profile or anywhere on the site…

    Has anyone else managed to get password protected posts working in this way?

    Figured a slight way round this…

    make a unprotected post and in it but a link to the password protected post and itll show that way…

    BUT

    this doesnt work in IE but does in Firefox

    for example
