I am able to hide it from my site search result by using plugin. However, when I go to this google search (http://www.example.com/tags/xxxxxxx), I can see the post is there. And then, from menu URL bar (http://www.example.com/xxxxx), the post is also there. Is there any way to hide it ? Please advise. Thanks. May 2, 2014 at 4:02 PM #1581 StartupWPKeymaster If you just want to hide it from search engines, you can use a number of SEO plugins to noindex it, for example if you already have the following plugin installed, you can do it there: http://wordpress.org/plugins/all-in-one-seo-pack/ If you want to password-protect a page you can do that from the page editor: https://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Password_Protection And more specifically: https://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Password_Protection#Hiding_Password_Protected_Posts There are of course .htaccess tricks we can use as well if none of these options suffice.

Is there any details post or tutorial of how to hide post using .htaccess ? Thanks.
