This is the plugin we use when we need to restrict access to a site on our multisite network:

This allows for a variety of options for restricting access.

Hope this helps,

We have a website where we want to restrict access to on- and off-campus users (board of visitors members).

Normally we use Shibboleth for authenticating on-campus users.  However in this case we wanted something more simple to restrict access to pages, posts, and Media Library items.

Anyone have a favorite plugin they use for this purpose, and why did you choose this particular plugin?

Thanks in advance for any guidance you can provide.
