    after adding those above lines into .htaccess, everything works accept my images and logo all are broken. any idea?

  4. You don't seem to have a clear understanding of what you're doing with .htaccess, and you're talking about two separate things.

    1) Password Protecting WP (doesn't work well with Multisite, due to the nature of how the virtual sites are created - not something we advocate)

    2) Hotlink protection. Read this: http://perishablepress.com/creating-the-ultimate-htaccess-anti-hotlinking-strategy/
