How to restrict access to all category posts with Hide My Site Multipass

Did you know that with Hide My Site Multipass it is possible to block all posts within a given category? For example, you could create a blog category called “VIP”, and then make it so that only visitors using your VIP password would be able to see posts in this category. Whenever you create a new post and assign it to the VIP category, the post would automatically be set to only show for visitors who know the VIP password. Note that you will have to be using Multipass Professional or higher in order to follow along with this tutorial (Access Level control is only available for these versions).

Step 1: Go to the category

To set a category-wide access level, start by going to Posts > Categories in your WordPress admin, then click on the desired category to bring up the Edit Category page. For the sake of this example, let’s edit a category called “VIP”.

Step 2: Set the access level

At the bottom of the page, there is a setting called “Access Level”. Here you can define the minimum access level required for users to be able to see all posts in this category. Let’s say you only want users with the highest level possible to be able to see posts in the VIP category. So you should set the Access Level to 10.

Step 3: Create a post in the VIP category

Create a new post and assign it to the VIP category. Once published, this post will only be available to users who are logged in with passwords that have access level 10. The same will be true for all posts within the VIP category – users will need to be using a level 10 password in order to see them.

Thanks for taking the time to read this tutorial. I hope you find it helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions or other feedback in the comments.
