In the local/config.php file set:
$DefaultPasswords['edit'] = crypt('put_the_edit_password_here');
That then requires authors to enter the password to be allowed to
edit any page.
Pages that are protected by default (most of the Site group pages)
can only be edited by an author giving the admin password, because it
overrides any protection.
You can protect entire groups by setting passwords on the GroupAttributes page.
