Greeting all, Happy Monday.

Have a question. A client need to password protect a section of their  
site. They currently have just static HTML content setup on a server.  
They are using htaccess protection via Apache. Considering WordPress  
does not use physical directories is there a way to 'lock-down' an  
entire category or nested page hierarchy?

Not clear? Consider this. The client has the following site structure.

/projects/admin/            ß Protect from here and all folders under  

I know they can password protect the page by assigning a password.  
But they want to traditional popup box for username and password. I'm  
not aware of plugin that offers this functionality.
