Yes, but you can add ?action=attr to the end of the URL and edit the  
"read" password on the page if you like.

This is site-wide grouping/logins, but it won't stop people from  
editing pages unless you change the permissions on the entire site,  
group or the page.

To change edit permissions across the site to any LOGGED IN user, add:

$DefaultPasswords['edit'] = "id:*";

to your config.php file.

Otherwise you can change passwords on a per group basis by editing  
the http://www.yoursite.com/wikipath/Group/GroupAttributes?action=edit

and changing the password there to the username or group ("id:mark"  
or "@admins") or to accept edits by anyone logged in ("id:*")

To change permissions on a single page add ?action=attr to the page  
URL and a form comes up requesting password options.

Yes :)  It's one of the examples on the Site.AuthUser page.

I hope this helps.
