A “hack” - making password input be of type password

This is a suggested modification to WordPress so that password protection of posts should be an input field of type password. Credit really belongs to Sam who suggested the idea in a comment on a test post about the password protected post feature.

The idea: when prompted for a password to access a password protected post, the input type should be of type password.

On line 493 of “b2-include/b2template.functions.php”, change input=”text” to input=”password”.

That’s it.

SELECT * FROM b2comments WHERE comment_post_ID = '363' AND comment_approved = '1' ORDER BY comment_date
