    .htacess password can make WordPress (or php cms) behaving like a mad. Anyway, you can cross check your method with this guide :

    You can surely post the code (except the password). If its bigger please use pastebin - http://wordpress.pastebin.ca/

    Use any membership plugin to restrict content from public.

    This is probably you want : http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/private-only/ - Redirects all non-logged in users to login form.

    .htacess password is actually for limited usage, it might throw error for many setup. Biggest advantage of this Plugin is, you can track the IP of the users who wanted to force login.

    Other method is to restrict is by IP. Disallow all except the server's IP and the users static IP from .htaccess.
