PPWP Pro Glossary

Understand different types of protection, passwords, and key features to better protect your content & private site.

Password Protection

Protect individual content of any custom post types with unlimited passwords.

Allow you to protect certain WordPress content sections. As such, you can show a teaser that encourages visitors to sign up to unlock private content sections.

  • Shortcode inline password refers to using a single password to protect partial content of individual custom post type (available on Free version)
  • Shortcode global password refers to using a shared password to protect partial content across multiple custom post types (available on Pro version)

Allow you to protect groups of WordPress content on different post types. You can group all your private content and unlock them at once using one password.

Allow you to protect WordPress categories (including WooCommerce product categories) and set different access levels for your content. Those with higher levels will automatically unlock content of the lower ones.

All your website content will be locked under a password login form. You can exclude certain pages and redirect users according to the passwords entered.

Sitewide Protection

While the Free version allows you to create one hashed password, you can create multiple sitewide passwords at once with our Pro version.

Restrict the expiration of sitewide passwords or quick access links by date or clicks automatically with our Password Suite extension.

In addition, you can track usage, add label and redirected URL.

Redirect users to specific URLs, e.g. pricing page or features page, according to the sitewide passwords entered.

  • Different passwords can be redirected to the same URL
  • Passwords without associated URL will take users back to the page users landed at

With the support of Password Suite extension, you’re allowed to:

Exclude certain pages or posts including splash pages from sitewide protection

    • Whitelist specific user roles to grant access permission to protected content without requiring passwords.
    • Display sitewide password form in any location on your site, even in your excluded pages, using a simple shortcode.

Import multiple sitewide passwords to your WordPress protected content from a CSV file with Password Suite extension.

All your website content will be covered with a password login form.

You are allowed to customize the default password form quickly and easily using WordPress Customizer. You can change the default logo, add a headline, edit the description, show password reveal button and more.

PPWP Pro Glossary: Sitewide Protection

Password Types

Set restricted access to your protected content for different WordPress user roles. Only authorized user roles are able to unlock your protected content with the correct passwords.

Global Passwords can be used by anyone compared to specific user roles.

You can create either Global or Role passwords for all types of password protection provided by PPWP Pro.

Use Master Passwords to unlock all protected content (pages, posts, and custom post types) at once. In other words, if your posts aren’t protected before, you cannot create a master password to lock them.

Refer to passwords using inside PCP shortcode to protect partial content of Pages & Posts provided on our Free version.

[ppwp passwords= "inline-password1 inline-password2"] Your content [/ppwp]

Refer to passwords created globally on our Settings to protect partial content across different custom post types.

[ppwp pwd="password-ids, 18, 19"] Your protected content [/ppwp]

Global passwords can be tracked using our Statistics extension.

Create multiple sitewide passwords to protect your entire WordPress site. Users can be redirected to certain pages according to the sitewide passwords entered.

Password Features

Limit password usage or the number of clicks on quick access links. Expired passwords can't be used anymore.

Automatically expire password after a number of days. Expired passwords can no longer be used.
