How to Write an MIWG Members-Only Blog Posting

The first thing that you must do is to select the “Block this post” checkbox:

Note that everything above the “Read More” tag will be visible to everyone in the world, and everything below the “Read More” tag will be restricted so that it can only be read by an MIWG members who is logged into the website.

When someone is viewing the blog posting on the website, everything above the “Read More” tag will be visible (i.e., anyone in the world will be able to read it). Everything below the “Read More” tag will be password protected and can only be accessed by an MIWG member who is logged into the website. If someone clicks on the “Continue Reading” link and they are not logged into the website, they will be presented with a login page.

About Steve Neil

I live on Vancouver Island on the west coast of Canada and make fine furniture for my family and friends and occasionally for clients. I have a degree in Engineering Physics from Queens University and worked in the telecommunications field for a long time doing hardware and software development. I was always interested in woodworking and so decided to retire early and go back to school to develop my woodworking skills, initially at Rosewood Studio in Ontario and then at Inside Passage School of Fine Cabinetmaking in British Columbia.
