    For some time I've added password protection my wp-admin because of brute-force attacks. I don't know when this started to happen but I now get asked to log when I look at pages containing slideshows. It doesn't happen on any other page of the website.

    I'll do some further tests and feedback later...

    Ok, it only seems to happen once in a specific browser session. So I start up Firefox and go to one of the pages. I get the login request box, but I just close it. Look at the page again - or the other page - don't get asked. Ok until I start a new Firefox session!

    Just to be sure I switched your plugin off. Didn't get the problem. Activated it again and the problem returned.

    The extra protection on your website causes the slideshow's request for its stylesheet to require authorization. You'll need to adapt the extra protection measure so that the following URL can be reached without requiring authorizaton: http://www.dibdenchurches.org/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php?action=slideshow_jquery_image_gallery_load_stylesheet&style=style-light&ver=2.2.19

    Stefan, please add this solution to your FAQ. I've met this problem also!

    And thanks for the plugin! :)
