Page Password Problem (8 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm trying to password protect a Page and I entered in a password for the Page Password. However, when I go to the page it does not prompt for a password. I have cleared my cookies and logged out to no avail.

    The only thing I can think of is that I am using a page template. Would that matter? It really shouldn't...

    Thanks!

    If it helps, it is registering that is password protected. There is a "Protected:" before the title.

    Just no password dialog.

    Any ideas?

    Nevermind, it appears as though this is a bug according to:

    If you delete your cookies you should get the password promt. It doesn't show up because you're logged in.

    I had a similar problem.

    What I forgot was that I was using the wp-cache plugin and what was happening was that it was showing the cached page of the 'enter your password'. When I cleared my cache and cookies and turned off that plugin it started working properly again.

    This post offers a solution to the problem of using wp-cache with password protected posts:

    Sorry, I wasn't meaning to be a pest, only to be helpful. I was having this problem today and thought it might help others since those were the only 2 threads I found that were related and neither one offered this solution.
