How to Change “The content is password protected. To view it please enter your password.” in Divi

Here’s how to change “The content is password protected. To view it please enter your password.” in Divi:

// Add this to your theme's functions.php or to your functional plugin.
function et_password_form_new() {
	$pwbox_id = rand();
	$form_output = sprintf(
		'<div class="et_password_protected_form">
			<h1>%1$s</h1>
			<p>%2$s:</p>
			<form action="%3$s" method="post">
				<p><label for="%4$s">%5$s: </label><input name="post_password" id="%4$s" type="password" size="20" maxlength="20" /></p>
				<p><button type="submit" name="et_divi_submit_button" class="et_submit_button et_pb_button">%6$s</button></p>
			</form>
		</div>',
		esc_html__( 'ADD YOUR TITLE HERE', 'Divi' ),
		'ADD HTML CONTENT HERE',
		esc_url( site_url( 'wp-login.php?action=postpass', 'login_post' ) ),
		esc_attr( 'pwbox-' . $pwbox_id ),
		esc_html__( 'Password', 'Divi' ),
		esc_html__( 'Submit', 'Divi' )
	);
	$output = sprintf(
		'<div class="et_pb_section et_section_regular">
			<div class="et_pb_row">
				<div class="et_pb_column et_pb_column_4_4">
					%1$s
				</div>
			</div>
		</div>',
		$form_output
	);
	return $output;
}
add_filter( 'the_password_form', 'et_password_form_new', 9999 );

That’s it!

Why is it so difficult to change “The content is password protected. To view it please enter your password.” in Divi?

Divi made a choice to deliver beautiful design above all else. Part of doing that meant that they had to write their own code to use for things like the password protected post form. Under normal circumstances, we’d simply hook into WordPress core’s “get_the_password_form()” to alter a form’s output. Since Divi doesn’t use that function, if we want to change the text in the form, we have to redefine/override Divi’s code, as described above.

Here’s the comparison between WordPress’ default password protected post form and Divi’s:

With Divi’s, it looks better out of the box, and you have complete control over styling.

How to merge two folders, including all sub-folders and files, on Mac

By The Mighty Mo! Design Co. | November 3, 2022

Today I had an issue where I needed to merge two folders, each of which contained many sub- and sub-sub folders that had lots of images. After a lot of trial-and-error and some Googling, I found the best solution is to use the “ditto” command in Terminal like this: That’s it! Hat tip to AppleInsider.
