How to let IE6 & 7 can using URL Link to passworded web site?

Hi all,

I had a folder under root that using CPanel to give it a password protected ...
So if someone go to this web site (for example:)

http://www.abc.com/passworded
Will be popular a box in IE6 /7 ask for user name and password ....

I am using 1.0.13 Joomla, and on the Menu, I added a link like that

http://username:password@www.abc.com/passworded

But this only work with Firefox, IE6 /7 will not work ...

I am wonder, do anyone know that a way that both FF and IE 6/7 can work together like that case?

And I am using Joomla 1.0.13 to make the URL Link for the Menu

Thank you.

this feature was disabled after xp sp2
it can be re-enabled via registry edits but this would not solve your problem for all visitors to the website.

Hi explorerjimmy1979,

I'm pretty sure MS removed the ability to pass passwords through the URL starting with IE 6.  You can't do what you want to do.
