Excellent product/Excellent Customer Support
I have a website selling digital music downloads for primary education. I needed a private category for this which can only be accessed by users who have paid to download the educational material (song videos and worksheets). I am delighted to have been able to achieve this aim using this simple and effective plug-in. Simple as it may be, I am completely new to WP and support to help me achieve my goal was vital. I am delighted to say that help was at hand, quickly and was most professional. I highly recommend this plug-in to you.
Just what I needed
I was looking for a simple plugin to put a password block over a set of custom post types. Normally I would have an accounts set up, but this was way too complex for the site I was building. Therefore I took a while looking for a decent solution, and the Password Protected Categories did the job perfect! But I did have a couple of issues once installed. Support was top class, and within a few minutes/emails it was all done. Thanks!
Perfect for our needs, excellent support
We recently purchased the plugin and do not have enough time to give a 5-star review. But, so far it's working perfectly! We have a membership-based organization (no web logins), and we needed a protected area where we could post private information. Password-protecting each page/post was not an easy option. What we wanted was to protect an entire category and all posts within that category. Password Protected Plugin does exactly that. Not only is the category list page protected but each post page is protected as well. The only thing we have to remember - and this is our responsibility, not the plugin - is to password protect any linked PDFs. There was a bit of a problem with the installation but the support team quickly responded and resolved the issue within a day. Once installed, setup was very quick and super simple. We definitely recommend this plugin!
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.
