MT Protect 1.2
UPDATE: Version 1.21 has been released that fixes the password protection bug under static publishing. Please download the new version and re-enable protection on all your blogs.
MT Protect is a plugin that allows you to easily protect entries so only authorized users can read the entry, comments and trackbacks. This new version has been built for Movable Type 3.2 and is feature packed:
- Cross-database compatibility - MT Protect is now compatible with PostGreSQL and SQLite. The only problem with using either of these two databases is that if you haven't got the necessary modules installed, you cannot use Password Protection (this is further explained in the docs)
- OpenID Support - MT Protect now allows you to protect entries/weblogs using OpenID. Protecting an entry using OpenID works exactly like protecting an entry using Typekey and best of all is that you can create OpenID groups. You may also be interested to know that Movable Type 3.2 comes with OpenID support, look in the extras/ folder!M
- Message Customizability - this was one of the most popular feature requests. With 1.2, you can now customize the message shown that informs a user that the entry has been protected.
- One Click Install/Upgrade - Now that MT's install/upgrade is a one click process, I felt that MT Protect should have a similar feature, and now it does! The first time you browse to mt-protect.cgi, you will be presented with a screen telling you to either install or upgrade!
