Greetings All -
I added htaccess to my site this week to head off an attempted hack. As a result, though, my site is prompting all visitors to log-in when they first arrive, something they should not need or have to do. If visitors click 'Cancel' at the log-in prompt the page loads and all is well. Still, something is not right.
So I dug into this a bit today, with help from my web host (InMotion Hosting.) They determined that the Slideshow plugin is calling to the WP-Admin Directory, instead of the WP-Content or WP-Includes Directory - thus prompting the additional log-in when htaccess is enabled. While I can follow this concept, I am clueless what to do about it, or how to fix it. I am VERY much a novice at this and could REALLY use some help determining the best course of action. My web host indicated this is more of a programming issue with the plug-in, than a problem I can readily fix myself - but suggested I put it out here to the forum for any ideas. So... Any ideas?
Thanks in advance for your help.
