How do I erase the "Password Protect This Page" password so it doesn't keep migrating to other pages and returning once deleted from my original page where it was needed? I've repeatedly deleted the password, saved and published. The password not only reappears, but it has migrated to other pages. After performing the remedy several times, multiple times on each page affected and deleting it from the original page several times, I think it's finally been killed off. How can the password migrate to other pages and why is it so difficult to delete?

HI Buddy, well we have both given advice about removing passwords from pages in the past so I know your doing the right thing, in my opinion, its got to be a glitch in the programme. Hope Drew can come up with an answer.. Good Luck.

Thank you. That logo element was discontinued. I am not sure why that would affect it, but if that resolves it for you then excellent.

The password is still popping up. I review each page on my menu daily. It's popped up on a different page each day for 8 days.

The password migrates to the page last edited. I've repeatedly tested this prognosis by exiting different pages. When logging into the Page Editor, you'll enter the page you last visited. Every time i review the Page Settings for that page, the password protect appeared. Do you think there's any way to exorcise this password protect demon?

Good information. I will send it to the developers to see if they can find a reason.
