This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



WP-Flock is a plugin that provides LiveJournal-like custom security groups for posts and pages. It’s more flexible than Post Levels, and less complicated than Role Scoper. Plus it hooks into JournalPress; what more could you want?

It is currently in its “stable beta” stage, and as such some features may not be available or a little wonky.

The latest updates about the plug-ins development can be found in the project blog.

Version 0.1

  • It’s alive! It’s alive!
  • Basic friends-locking group functionality completed.


  1. Upload the wp-flock folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory;
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress; and
  3. Visit Settings > User Groups to configure your overall post settings;
  4. Profit!


Do you support MU?

No. It’s on the list.

How do I find my LiveJournal group bitmask?

With difficulty. You have to view-source on the Update Journal page, then look for the list with ids like custom_bit_xx. That final number is the bitmask for that group.

Yeah, I know it’s awkward. I’m hoping to streamline it in future releases.
