My service provider changed my Wordpress admin login url for security reasons. Now my password protected pages do not work. When password is entered you get a blank screen or sometimes, an unauthorized or denied message (I don't remember the details).

I have tried deleting and re entering the page password, and I have tried creating a new page that is password protected. Neither works.

Is there a way to fix this? Or work around it? I need a few password protected pages for clients only.

 

Thanks,

Lynne

First port of call for me would be service provider.

What are you using to create password protected pages?

Make sure you backup before upgrading and making changes.

Hi Keith,

When I create a new page there is a visibility option to password protect the page
