Hi there!
Here's a interesting question for you. I want to make page on my blog that the general population can NOT see. BUT I want to use this page, to send the people who have subscribed to my newsletter. This is in order for them to then download something from this page.
Thank you ahead of time, and again I LOVE this theme! and have made a donation.

Create or edit the page in question, and on the top right there's a "Publish" box with a line that says "Visibility: ...... [Edit]". Click the Edit link, choose "Password protected", put a password there and, before clicking "Update Page" or "Publish page" (depends on whether page existed or is new), look at the top of the browser window at the URL field for the URL ending on "?action=edit&post=XX". Note the XX number at the end, it is the Page ID which you'll need later. See also the screenshot attached below

Then go to Atahualpa Theme Options -> Page Menu Bar -> Exclude pages from Page Menu Bar? and put the XX ID of that page there.

If you make a page private it will vanish from the page menu bar but only admins and editors can read it, subscribers (members with the lowest = "subscriber" privilege) cannot. You'd need a plugin for that such as http://www.im-web-gefunden.de/wordpr.../role-manager/
