    At my job:
    ----------
    Mac
    Firefox 3 and Safari

    I created a password protected page. I logged out and visited that page but couldn't see the content as it is password protected. Fine, works as it should.

    At my home:
    -----------
    PC
    Firefox 2 and IE7

    I could (and still can) see the page content without entering the password:o

    Try to refresh the browser, maybe you are looking at a cached version?

    Other thing to remember is that wordpress asks for the password only once and then remembers it until you change the password.

    Refreshed it 20 times:)

    Hrmmm... I didn't really understood this last thing you said. I'll try to 'decode' it at wordpress.org:)

    Cheers

    EDIT: Were You talking about cookies maybe? That sounds like a possibility. So If I enter password it will be stored until I delete cookies or change the password?

    Thanks

    Right, but that would make sense on on the same computer. Any chance both work and home use the same IP?

    What kind of server side caching you have installed, if any.

    I had a I'm stupid moment where I was disabled Super-Cache but didn't delete the already cached files. So I spent the whole day logged in, with my changes while visitors saw messed up code/css :(

    @andrea - same computer

    @Klarko thanks for sharing your "I'm stupid" experience cause I would probably do the same thing:)

    same computer?

    I thought in the OP you said you tried on a mac at work and on a PC at home?

    Sorry, my bad. I think that problem (if it was a problem) is solved. I've probably entered (back at home / PC) that password and forgot about it. Since then I didn't delete cookies and I believe that's the thing. You are trying to say that WPMU remembers my IP and that's why I was able to see that page?

    I was thinking cookies set by IP.

    But of course you did. I'm just a designer;P

    Ah, but if you're a *good* designer then you're worth your weight in gold. :)

    You'll see the result, here at this forum, 10 - 15 days from now. WPMU project of course. Than we'll see how good I am or am I *good* at all.
