Just what the doctor ordered

This plugin is fantastic. We use it on all the sites we have in development to keep clients from peaking at their sites before they are ready.

Absolutely Perfect

So simple and so clever! As a plugin developer, a big part of my job is creating admin settings screens. So I spent a good few minutes trying to find the settings screen to fully enable this plugin. Then it dawned on me, there wasn't one. You just install, and the rest of the world is locked out. Genius! Fantastic work Kevin.

I have installed ForceLogin on four wordpress sites. I found this plugin very simple -- no config to worry about. It has worked every time I tested it.

I installed ForceLogin to block out site-categorization systems such as BlueCoat. Since BlueCoat doesn't have a login and can't see my site content, it will not give a bad rating against my site.

Works fine on my WP 6.1 installation

This is a great little plugin if you like me only want to put your blog and all it's posts behind an enforced login. No user management, no additional features, only this. I've been running this plugin for quite some time and it just keeps on working.

¡Esto es exactamente lo que quiero! Solo quiero bloquear la vista pública antes de que el sitio esté listo. No necesita otras funciones. ¡Muchas gracias por hacerlo simple!
