    I login as admin...full rights.
    I can call-up and edit posts...BUT
    ...when I save or publish, I get a call for a USERID and PWD in a popup box that says: "The server (my url) at Magic requires a username and password.

    What is this?
    How do I get rid of it?
    No pwd or userid combination will allow me access.
    I can not post or publish.

    Help!!!!

  2. This is a known hack and vulnerability with your out of date version of WordPress.

    This is patched in the latest version of WordPress, and was the reason there was a fairly widespread alert going on to upgrade when that version came out.
