[Resolved] Why does my blog require a password?

  • When I click on the link you’ve provided, I get asked for the username and password. If I click “Cancel” I get asked four more times (I click “Cancel” each time) and then the page displays – but without any images.

    I see some image placeholders in your Austria post while I’m going through the “Cancel” process, so it make me wonder if those images are stored on a password-protected part of the server where your website is hosted.

    If, like me, you’ve installed the WordPress software from the Fantastico link in your cPanel – a few clicks and it’s done – then there shouldn’t be a problem with that.

    Check the links to the images, or try removing them temporarily and see if that solves the problem.

    Actually, I’ve just taken a look at your page’s source code and all the image links start “http://stevenkilzer.com:2082/..”. The “:2082” after the .com is a reference to your cPanel, so this is why you’re getting the prompt to input a username and password.

    You need to check these links and make sure you’re linking to where the images are on your server (eg “http://stevenkilzer.com/images/…”, not to a viewer, which is what you seem to be doing now.
