Need to add privacy to your WordPress powered website? Absolute Privacy is a plugin that does just that. It’s perfect for family blogs!
I just released v1.2 of my Absolute Privacy WordPress plugin. Absolute Privacy is a plugin which makes your blog only accessible to logged in users. It also lets users register themselves, choose a password, but have to be approved before being able to log in.
This update was mainly to fix an XML-RPC authentication issue that prevented remote publishing apps (like the iPhone WordPress app) from communicating with private blogs. I tested the iPhone app on a blog running 2.8.2 with no problems. I haven’t tested other remote applications, so your feedback would be appreciated.
I also added the ability to prevent blog subscribers from accessing any admin pages. Normally they have access to a profile page and a dumbed-down dashboard. If enabled, they’ll now be redirected to the main blog page if trying to reach any admin page.
And finally, some users running WordPress 2.8 were permission errors when clicking the link to approve users. Version 1.2 fixes this issue.
