When wrong password...
Could I protect more than one category
Yes. You just have to check the right checkboxes in the plugin options screen.
Could I style the password form?
Yes. Beginning with version 1.4 of Access Category Password. You can add in your regular theme stylesheet (style.css) the selectors and their properties. Here are the available classes:
acpwd-container class: the container of all elements that replace the content.
acpwd-info-message class: the
<p> tag containing the info message.
acpwd-form class: the
acpwd-pass class: the
<input type="password"> tag.
acpwd-submit class: the
<input type="submit"> tag.
acpwd-error-message class: the
<p> tag containing the error message.
Could I display the excerpt but not the content of a protected article?
Yes. You just have to check the “Only single posts” checkbox in admin options panel.
Could I set more than one Password?
No, sorry, I wanted to keep the plugin simple. But this would be a functionnality that could be added later,…
Are the attachments in the posts protected ?
No, sorry, I didn’t find yet a solution to solve this. So if someone gets the link to the attachment of a protected post, he will be able to download it.
