Support » Plugin: Private Only » Routing to Login for ALL 404 Errors

  • We are developing a new site based on WordPress, and while it is under development, the owner asked that we keep the site password protected. He does not want visitors to accidentally access the new site until we launch it.

    Our WordPress install is in a subdirectory and our main site is in a series of root level folders. With the Private Only plugin disabled, everything works fine, but when I turn it on, all 404 errors are routed to the WordPress login page.

    This isn’t a huge problem, but for some reason, if we incorrectly enter a link for an image on our main site, it creates a looping login/fail while trying to load the image as we access that page. As a result, we trip the “brute force” rules of our web host and get locked out of our site.

    What is going on here and how do we fix it?

    We have permalinks set to [domain]/subdirectory/category/post/
