Plus you can use passwords for certain sections to have even more exclusive content.

Does Not Work

Looks like it works.. tested it… used it on firefox and chrome to make sure it worked. Looks like it did.

then.. launched our product.

after complaints people could NOT get in, started inquiring.

client tried a few browsers and could not get past the security check so went to a third browser and password was not presented… so got straight through without security.

so then I tried it on another browser.. a clean browser. Password was requested.

so then I’m thinking that the client is crazy.. how can he get past the security.

so then I tried it on a fresh computer. Opened up IE, Chrome and FF.

ALL three browsers bypassed the security and went straight through to the content.

then tried it on my iPhone. Security prompt was there, but it would not take the password to get in. Tried case sensitivity and still no go.
