    “updating (approx 6-monthly) in minutes”

    I know you mean updates happen about every 6 months, but I think it could be read as there are approximately 6 updates/month :)

    “Password-protect site sections, or even specific articles”

    Out of the box? Did I miss this somewhere?

    Thanks Mike, I’ve updated the updating bit :)

    According to the password protect page on Textbook, it can go anywhere, but now I notice there’s a warning about protecting sections down at the bottom. So well spotted and I’ve changed that too.

    I’m glad you mentioned it. I don’t know if I forgot that tag was available or didn’t know it. Either way the only methods that came to mind were recommendations I’ve read over the years involving ign_password and mem_’s membership plugins or htaccess modifications.

    I love learning or relearning new things ;-)

    Thanks Peter
