Excellent plugin; excellent support.
Chose this plugin to protect a photo site with nested categories for years, months etc.. Quick to install and super easy to set up with an intuitive menu. Works perfectly, protecting WP portfolio categories and page categories (if you install 'add caregories to pages plugin). I manually allocate passwords to authorised visitors and would like to see specific password logging details (like a basic membership feature) in any future add-ons - but that wasn't a deal breaker for me. Customised login page to suit theme using shortcode in AVIA layout builder but decided to use the default password entry dialogue inherent in the plugin. Tried dropping shortcode into 3rd party popup plugin but didn't want to pay for enabling its controlled linking feature. So reverted to the WP PPC core plugin functionality. The Barn2 support is spot-on both in terms of speed, knowledge and demeanour. The supporting app notes are well written and informative. Overall a very highly recommended plugin that does exactly what it says and an excellent support service!
Simple, effective plugin backed with professional support
The plugin installs seemlessly into the WordPress framework with no additional coding or tinkering around required. A particular feature of this plugin that I appreciate is the ability to be able to issue a password unique to each member. This means that removing a member's access is simply a case of removing their password. Another great feature that this plugin supports is the ability to create a landing page on which a menu of the private contents can remain on display to everyone. When anyone clicks a link, they are then required to log in to view the contents. Due to an error I had with my WP setup I had reason to contact Barn2 support. A response was recieved back very quickly, so the support is very professional. So if you need a quick and convenient plugin for protecting particular categories, this one fits the bill.
