Blog behing HTTP authentication

  1. Dear All,

    Here some feedback regarding the iPhone app:

    My wordpress blog is set-up to work behind a http authentification (via an .htaccess file). I don't seem to get it working as the iPhone app cannot connect to the blog. It would be nice if you could add support for this.

    Regards,
    Chris

  2. Hi Chris,

    same problem here - would be great if someone could help out.
    Did you tried to set the blog free - add it to the app, and them secure it again?!

    Thanks Timo!

  3. Hi all,

    I tried it - deactivate the .htaccess and I could add my blog to the WP App.
    After reactivating the .htaccess I got an error (of cause).

    Would be great if you add this as an feature ...
    Thanks!

    -Timo!

  4. I agree that this would be a handy feature. We have a few family blogs that are HTTP basic auth protected (under SSL) and it would be nice to be able to use the iPhone app with them!

  5. I have successully added this feature in my local dev copy of the app.

    If anyone could point me in the right direction to submit a patch that would be great!

    EDIT: Got some help from a coworker (I'm a total Trac noob). http://iphone.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/282
