I just reinstalled a fresh copy of 3.23 and when trying to protect a folder I no longer have the new_rewrite option (see message below). My hosting provider indicates that new_rewrite is supported for my account. They are asking what "rules" I'm specifying so that they can troubleshoot. I've never had this problem before and do not know what to provide my support folks in order for them to find/fix the issue. Anyone else experience this issue? Thanks. aMember message... new_rewrite (RewriteRule doesn't work in .htaccess files on this server) Most advanced method of protection - user will see your custom HTML login form. This method can protect ANY type of content, and will NOT cause problems with complex PHP scripts residing in protected area. Access sharing prevention works automatically with this plugin.
