Site password - after entering password, still randomly asking for it again

Recommended Posts

Have a site I need a site password for.  If I understand the concept correctly, the user enters the site password then has access to all pages until password naturally expires as SQSP has it set (~ 4 hrs?)

Right now, site password allows access.  But for some pages it randomly asks for the password again, well within any password expiration period.

Im wondering if its how I have the pages organized?  Should they all be under the Main Nav area and Enabled?  I have many of them in the Not Linked section (from early idea to keep hidden).

Are you an administrator of the site and able to check individual page settings? If a page password has been set on some of these pages - in addition to the site password - it would cause these symptoms.

I was hoping to find some individual pages password protected, but none are.  Just the site is password protected.  But I still have subpages asking for password after the initial site login password is used.
