Fill the (entire) page with a login screen if the user is not connected, else add a little widget that can replace the meta one…..
Version – 1.0.0
Mandatory Authentication is a plugin that put a WordPress blog behind a login form. It can be usefull for a family blog whose members do not want to make their blog accessible from visitor but do not really need to have a hight security. This plugin does not sweat to those who host confidential informations, use a plugin like wp-sentry instead !
It lets users login, and then redirects them back to the blog, it also shows error messages.
NOTE: it is based on sidebar-login version 2.1.4 from jolley_small, thanks to his great job !
First time installation instructions
- Unzip and upload the php file to your wordpress plugin directory
- Activate the plugin
- For a sidebar widget: Goto the design > widgets tab – Drag the widget into a sidebar and save!
Other Notes :
The login form still contains (as hidden) the original page content. The RSS feed are readable !
This plugin does not makes your post private as some other plugins like wp-sentry can do ! It just force user to login !
- Externalyze CSS of login form
- Make login form CSS modifiable from Admin GUI
