Making RoloPress Private

If you’re using RoloPress as a contact manager, then you probably want to keep it private.  Remember, RoloPress is just a website (a really cool website), just like your Gmail or Yahoo email account.  Gmail and Yahoo make you type in a ID and password before you can view your email, keeping it safe from prying eyes.  Here’s how you can do the same with RoloPress:

  1. Members Only Plugins: WordPress has a lot of members only plugins.  Essentially they can make your site only accessible to people that have a user account.  Here are a few you may want to look at:
    1. Members
    2. WP-members
  2. Password Protect Your Installation: If you have access to cPanel (ask your host), then password protecting your RoloPress folder is probably the best way keep it private.  Log into cPanel, and under the “Security” area choose “Password Protect Directories”.  Make sure you only choose your RoloPress directory, otherwise you might inadvertently make all your sites private.

    Thanks for RoloPress and this tip for keeping it private. For increased privacy, I disabled RSS feeds by adding the following code to the active theme’s (RoloPress Default) functions.php

    // disable RSS feed
    function fb_disable_feed() {
    wp_die( __('No feed available, please visit the homepage!') );

    add_action('do_feed', 'fb_disable_feed', 1);
    add_action('do_feed_rdf', 'fb_disable_feed', 1);
    add_action('do_feed_rss', 'fb_disable_feed', 1);
    add_action('do_feed_rss2', 'fb_disable_feed', 1);
    add_action('do_feed_atom', 'fb_disable_feed', 1);
    // end disable RSS feed
