Plugin doesn't work with htaccess-Protection of wp-admin (2 posts)

    Hi!

    I have protected my wp-admin folder with a password to avoid hacker attacks. But this doesn't work with your plugin as your tool is loading a file from this folder in the frontend section and now my user see a "password request". Without this password, they won't see the tweets.

    I believe that this line of code is generating the problem:
    var RapidTwitter_config = {"ajaxurl":"http:\/\/www.sbrinkmann.de\/wp-admin\/admin-ajax.php","sec":"655b827f50"};

    I will switch of your plugin and I hope that you will fix it with an update.

    Thanks
    Sebastian

    That's where WordPress keeps it's ajax scripts, I'm afraid, there isn't much I can do about it.

    You could excude ajax-admin.php from requiring a password.

    As an aside, protecting wp-admin does not protect your site from dictionary attacks. Instead, you need to protect /wp-login.php
