Want to hide your blog from the public? Use “Members Only” plugin.

If you’ve used a WordPress.com blog before, there are 3 Privacy options. The 3rd one is “I would like my blog to be visible only to users I choose”. Choosing this option will redirect the homepage to the login page, and only selected users once logged in can view the blog.

Moving on to a self-hosted WordPress blog, there are only two Privacy Option, the 3rd one described above isn’t provided. “Members Only” plugin will give you this option.

Check out the plugin page here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/members-only/

It looked like the plugin hadn’t been updated for a while, but I installed it on Sep 19, 2011, and it still works fine.
