Need ideas- allow access to site in stages

Recommended Posts

Hello genuises!

 

I have a site that I'm working on that I want to release in stages (it's currently all in maintenance mode).

  1. blog
  2. static site
  3. store

I'm curious if anyone has any brilliant ideas on how to only allow access to the areas as I am ready to have them available to the public. I'm having a serious brain fart regarding a solution to this- and I'm relatively sure that it can't be *nearly* as difficult as my thinking is making it.

 

Please help.

<3 Bree

Hi Bree

 

There's a couple of options I can think of first off.

 

One would be to keep the pages as private or draft using the wordpress settings in the post editor.

 

Two would be to use a plugin like S2 member (officially a membership plugin) but it would allow you to prevent access to certain pages unless you're a registered member until you were ready to make them public.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Thanks for the speedy (and useful) reply, James!

 

Another question the idea of private/draft pages made me think of is the home page. Currently it's static... can you think of any big headaches I might encounter by setting home to recent posts for now and then changing it back to static when I'm ready to release that area of the site?

 

Thanks!

Hi again, no there shouldn't be any problems with that. Just set the relevant pages in settings>reading and then switch back later.
