Welcome back to the Build A Blog Tutorial. This is Part 4: Passwording Individual Entries.

In this tutorial I am going to show you how to add a column to your table that allows you to define each entry as either passworded or not passworded. Then we’re going to add a checkbox to the entry form so that you can toggle that attribute. Finally we’ll modify the entry display pages to require a password on protected entries.
