Support » Plugins » Using Comment Form Quicktags with wp-admin folder password protected

  • Let me start by saying that this plugin is great!

    I just wanted to share a quick tip that may be helpful to those who want to use Comment Form Quicktags, but have password protected their wp-admin directory as a good security measure.

    After noticing that when not logged in as admin, viewing any post would require password authentication – and pulling my hair out, trying to figure out why – I realized that the style sheet inside the plugin directory, calls as a background an image from within the wp-admin folder, like this:

    div#ed_toolbar input, #ed_toolbar span{
    	background: #fff url("../../../wp-admin/images/fade-butt.png") repeat-x 0 -2px;

    so, on each page load it required authentication while trying to pull such image.


    1 – Get rid of the url call, and just use css colors (my choice).

    2 – Make a duplicate of the image, store it in a different directory, and change the url path in the style sheet.

    Hope this helps!
