Desire to use .htaccess to password protect forum directory
bbpress version 2.5.13
wordpress version 4.8
I’ve looked around support forum here and also carefully through my localhost installation (where my bbpress forum is currently installed for test purposes) and I’m dashed if I can work out how to use .htaccess to password protect the entire forum.
I’m aware that there are other ways to authenticate users but some of my clients website visitors are young people and we are keen to ensure that access to the website forum is restricted most severely. By this I mean we wanted to place the forum in its own directory and then place .htaccess and .htpasswd in that directory to limit access to individuals who had personally been handed a note of what the username and password were.
Might I ask if I’ve missed something simple? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Have a great day
