Closed Beta is a WordPress plugin which allows you to turn your site into a “Closed Beta” site where only logged in and approved users will be able to access your normal WordPress site. Any logged out or unapproved users will see the Closed Beta splash page which allows users to “sign up” for approval to access your site.
User Approval System
Closed Beta comes with a built in user approval system, allowing you fine grained control over exactly who gets “beta” access to your site or not. Any logged out or unapproved users will see the Closed Beta splash page while approved and logged in users will see your normal, fully functional WordPress site.
Custom Splash Page & Signup
Closed Beta comes with a powerful splash page editor which allows you to create a totally unique splash page that will be shown to logged out or unapproved users. It comes with a built in signup form so that users can request “beta” access to your site if you decide to approve them.
Powerful and Extensible
Not only does Closed Beta come with the awesome features above but it also allows you to block feeds, trackbacks and XMLRPC, it contains advanced developer template customisation including powerful custom actions and filters and it includes automatic updates. But don’t worry you can use the plugin without having to touch any code if you wish.
