    Hi,

    When using the URL as described in settings screen, it appears to be not working. If I want to reach the page http://www.domain.com/thisismypage with credentials username + password, what would my URL be?

    Regards

    The url does not change for viewing blog pages in a browser. Just log into WordPress then you can visit the page as normal without being forced to the login page.

    You only need to add username and password to the url if you are trying to view the RSS feed from something other than a browser.

    Is that clearer?

    No. So, this basically just works for RSS feeds? Hmmm... I thought it was a way to view secure pages using a browser, without having to login manually.

    No it works with the blog too.
    Feeds are read through feed readers so they need to have the username and password in the url for the reader to be able to access the feed.
    In a browser you log in as normal and you can see everything.
    If you are not logged in you will be forced to the login page.

    You have to log in manually, once as normal. The plugin just secures all pages to require you to log in.

    Then the plugin will be of no use for us. We do not want our visitors to log in manually.

    They are already registered on website A, and we can use their credentials in the URL to log in automatically in website B.

    Sounds like you might want to use WordPress in multisite mode.

    Nope. Other website is not WordPress.

    I don't understand the feed function. As I can subscribe to it with Google Reader (Feedly), what is the use ?

    You can subscribe to it because you have the login cookies set in you browser.
    When google reader tries to read your site it will be asked for a username and password and fail to get the feed.

    Yes, you are right - I've made a test.

    I'm glad I am, i thought that part was not working on your system for some reason :)

    You can get it to work though, if the logon details are supplied as shown.
