I would like change the settings to remove this word from all blog post titles, but there doesn't seem to be a way to do this in my theme or settings. There are Wordpress plugins available (such as "Remove Protected"), but none of these plugins have been enabled by UVM. So I'm wondering (1) if somebody can enable these plugins or (2) if is there a CSS workaround that I could use?
To be honest, I don’t think I have encountered someone setting up an entire WordPress site in that manner before. We have lots of restricted sites, but people generally set them to the privacy level that allows access only to subscribers, and then everyone who needs access is invited by adding them as a user. (We allow both UVM and non-UVM users, so there aren’t limits there.) This is more flexible, and gives you more fine-grained control over who can access your pages. If you really do want your site set up with passwords, however, we could figure something out.
The general pattern for protected content is that it is set on an individual post basis, which is why WordPress prepends the title with “Protected”, kind of as a warning that you might not be able to actually go there even if you can click to other things on the site. This word is not inside any HTML tags, though, which would eliminate (easily) using CSS to hide it, and a plugin would likely be required. We can look into one if that’s what you really want, though I’d again suggest the other route unless it’s unworkable for your intended use.
