How to Create a Private Portal on Your WordPress Website

Private portals let you create an independent, secure connection to your website visitors through a simple interface on your mobile device. With just a few steps, you can have an independent access point that leads to all your favourite WordPress content.

You can use a tool like Hello Fresh to create a network of private portals to access content on your website. Using your own domain name (like “www.yourdomain.com”), you can create a unique and independent web address that links to your content. In addition to being completely independent of Google, Facebook, and any other third party, private portals give you the flexibility to update content as often as you like without needing to ask anyone for permission.

Here’s how to create a private portal on your WordPress website:

Add Private Portal to Your Website’s Menu

One of the first things you need to do to create a private portal is to add the feature to your website. If you’re running WordPress, the process is simple; just visit the ‘Plugins’ section of your dashboard and search for ‘Private Portal’.

Once you find the plugin, click on ‘Install’ and you’ll be able to activate the feature on your website.

Create Portals for Your Home Pages

You can also use the Hello Fresh plugin to create a portal for each of your home pages. When you visit a specific page on your website, you’ll be greeted by a small indicator (similar to a QR code) that can be scanned by a mobile device. When scanned, the device will be directed to a private portal page that displays all the content from that specific page along with other items like videos, images, and more.

The advantage of this approach is that you can add these links to different pages to create an independent, custom mini-website for each of your projects. For example, you might create a home page for your upcoming book and then add a private portal to that page to provide additional information about the project (

).

Use Case: Creating a Private Portal to Promote Your Event

Let’s say you’re the promoter of an upcoming art exhibition. You want to create a mini-website where people can easily find out all the details about the event, including the dates and times, and how to get tickets. You might also want to add a private portal so that people who want to buy a painting can contact you directly without having to go through a third party.

You could use the private portal you’ve created on your WordPress site to disseminate information about the event. Let’s assume you’ve named your new portal ‘exhibits.yourdomain.com’, and you’ve added a link to it from your homepage. When someone visits your homepage or clicks on a link to your new portal, they’ll see all the details about your event formatted in a neat and tidy fashion.

Don’t Forget About SEO!

To make your private portals easy to find, you must ensure that they’re recorded properly in the ‘H1′ and ‘H2′ headings of your ‘article’ metatags.

If your site’s articles are well-written and the headings are appropriate, search engines like Google and Bing will recognize the value of your content and likely ‘send’ more ‘clients’ your way through ‘organic’ search results.

Creating a private portal on your WordPress website is a great way to separate yourself from the rest of the web. With just a few simple steps, you can have an independent access point that leads to all your favourite WordPress content.
