HTTP Authentication Plugin

Just a quick note: My authentication patch was accepted and should show up in WordPress 1.5.1, whenever that happens. I added the corresponding plugin to the WordPress plugin repository.

Update (2006-01-12): Version 1.4 released, which is updated to work with WordPress 2.0. It also provides better error messages if it can’t authenticate the user. You can download a zip from Owen Winkler’s site.

If you’re still using WordPress 2.0, please use version 1.8 of the plugin.

Update (2008-04-16): Changes in WordPress 2.5 are causing problems with this plugin. I’ve released an updated plugin that is compatible with the upcoming WordPress 2.5.1.
