in thread Creating a protected area of website

In theory then, if I use htaccess in the root directory, the user should only have to login one time and then be able to browse about the website without having to enter the password again? Not happening though I have used MSIE and Mozilla on PC's and Macs.

Is this the typical way to password protect an entire website? If so, is there some configuration that would produce this kind behavior?

    The password is entered every single time. Its just that your browser remembers the password after the first time you type it in successfully and enters it automatically. For more information than you really want on how authentication works, go read RFC 2617.
