Is there a way to secure only one part of a wordpress site? I mean not the entire website. I have not found any solution yet. Thank you.

  • Can you edit your answer to clarify what kind of security you are looking for? If you want to lock down an individual posts or pages you can use the "password protected" option in the editor. Commented Mar 17, 2017 at 14:57

While there are a few different options to locking down WordPress, one simple method of locking down a post or page would be to use the Protected post option within the page editor.
