Absolute Privacy - letting anyone access posts (2 posts)

    I have a membership only blog from where I sell some graphics to club members. I installed the Absolute Privacy plug in and set it up to "Complete Lockdown", told it which pages non-logged in people could access (etc) and tested it. Everything was working fine....for about 3 weeks.

    This morning I noticed that I had loads of downloads and a couple of comments from people thanking me for giving my work away for free. When I checked my blog it seemed that now anyone now has access to the posts (previously when people clicked to view the post they were told to log in).

    I have checked the settings, reinstalled the plug in, rechecked settings again and still it lets anyone view the posts. Does anyone have any odea what's going on? And why it would just stop working? I haven't added any new plug ins since installing the plug in originally, and I haven't been tweaking any code wither (since I wouldn't know where to start).

    Any help - things I need to check etc - much appreciated. Thanks!

    Ran into a similar problem when upgrading to WP 3.3: with an existing username, anyone could access my private blog. Login worked even with random usernames. So i unistalled Absolute Privacy...
    The quite recently updates "more Privacy Options" Plugin didn't do its job either...
    Now I found a Plugin called "Network Privacy" which adds basic privacy to Single and Multi-Sites and: it works (for the monment)...
