Sharable Password Protected Posts

Description

Share a link to anonymous users to view private and password protected posts (or any other public post type).

This plugin generates secret URLs (similar to Google Docs and other cloud services) for posts so you can share them with not-logged in users without having to share an extra password with them.

Usage

  • To enable a sharable url check the box below the edit post box on a private or password protected post
  • The link will be displayed if the checkbox is checked, just copy and share the link.
  • To disable just uncheck the box.

By default it’s enabled for all public post types, but that can be changed via the sppp/postTypes filter.

Reviews

Running a small site to keep track of configuration and wiring details for alarms, power panels, network switches, telephone extensions, etc. I wanted to be able to use my phone’s camera and a QR code sticker on each unit to quickly bring up the related details from the site, while keeping the content private. Now I just password protect each page I create and generate a URL with this plugin that I can print as a QR code. Simple, and easy solution to keeping my content private and easily accessible. Two thumbs up and 5 Stars.
