Here’s Deborah Savadra’s question:
I’m putting together an e-course to sell to my newsletter readers called The WordPerfect Lover’s Guide to Word. I put together the first to-be-protected post, published it, and (since I couldn’t do this step pre-publication) protected it and assigned it to the course I’d set up, expecting (based on the representation made in the DAP documentation online under “RSS feed protection”) that the post would “disappear” from my RSS feed.
Instead, I got this:
So now I’m considering publishing all of my protected paid course material (as opposed to my protected posts for my free newsletter readers) as pages rather than posts to keep this sort of thing from happening.
What’s your recommendation/observation? I see there are other plugins available to do “stealth publishing” of posts – is that a good workaround?
Thanks for asking for questions – I look forward to reading your answer!

This is a typical complaint of many DAP users. “It’s not you, it’s DAP!” There’s an easy way to fix this that I recommend for all users, because the answer to this question ALSO fixes another common questions clients have: how to protect scheduled posts.
I created a video behind-the-scenes in one of my DAP sites to answer Deborah. See the step-by-step instructions below the video.
