    I have a sitefinity site localisation enabled - i.e.

    by default redirects to:

    However, i have a directory on the site that isnt part of the Sitefinity site that requires basic password authentication to get into.

    If i access it with the URL:

    the basic authentication username and password box pops up just as it should do. Howeve, if i access that directory using the URL:

    it lets me straight in without prompting for my login details.

    I can see why it is doing this but is there any way to avoid this happending, as it obviously isnt very secure!

    Hello Shaun Mitchem,

    We tried to reproduce the problem with IIS7 and II6 as well with no avail using Sitefinity 3.7 SP1. Could you tell us

    - which version of Sitefinity you use
    - Which version of Windows you use
    - Which version of IIS you use.
    - How IIS permissions are set ( if you can provide us with a screenshot it will be great).

    Temporarily solution could be using QueryString as persistenceMode - the language is appended as a QueryString.

    I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.

    Best wishes,
