Hi, i will please like to password protect a couple of pages on my site but each time i try to carry out the instruction somehow it ends up protecting the index page. I have watched the video but it still comes out wrong. How can i do it so that it is just the page i choose that is protected not my index page. The pages within the site.Thanks

If you are doing it through CPanel, it means that you are protecting the entire directory, not just the pages. If this directory is your public_html. it is obvious that the entire site is getting protected.

Use BV's login tools instead to protect only the pages you want. Related thread: BV’s new built in Login system – a brief tutorial. (http://www.vodahost.com/vodatalk/bluevoda-general-issues/55281-bv-s-new-built-login-system-brief-tutorial.html)

When i was trying to connect to the link you provided I encountered some fast flashing small dark screens. About 20 of them flashing fast same time. A bit scary so i turned off my computer and re-booted. I tried the link again but this time i could not even open it, i was being asked if i wanted to work off line. Weird stuff. Is there any other way i could get the script without corrupting or damaging my computer? I will really appreciate your help. Thanks

I'm not sure what you mean. The link is to this very forum, where I posted the tutorial, so there are no scripts or other that can cause the issue you posted.

DBTechnosystems is my company and the link is my website. You should instead watch the tutorial posted in BV’s new built in Login system – a brief tutorial. (http://www.vodahost.com/vodatalk/bluevoda-general-issues/55281-bv-s-new-built-login-system-brief-tutorial.html)

Do you have the latest (BV 11.4 G) version ? These tools are not available in previous versions.

I have finally figured it out and it is all working perfectly well thank you so so so very much. The reason i had the problem earlier is because it was a zip file and i was trying to open as if it wasn't. So i had to extract it and viola i was able to access it. Thank you Voda host you guys are the best. I am proud to be a BV user and will do it again and agian and again. Thank you!!!!!

I have created the signup page, when I go to preview it the code shows up on the top of the page in the browser... I can not seem to find the way to "hide" the code...

The page must be published as .php, not as .html.

I have about 20 pages that I want pass protected because the people must sign up first to get into them. What' s the easiest way to pass protect them without doing each page individually. Should I put them into a file and pass protect the entire file, and if so how do I do that?

Hi, can I get an answer to my last question about password protecting about 30 pages...do I password protect the entire file or one page at a time. Then, when the client gives me his password, how do I let him into those pages, do I have t list a password on the site for each client.

Mikee, you are confusing things.

There are two ways to password protect one or more pages of the site and require that the users are registered and logged in before they can view these pages.

1. Using a Password Protected Directory (folder).
This is a method that allows you to create a "protected" folder. If the pages you want to protect are inside that folder, the server will require the visitors to login withtheir password before they can see these pages. However, the usernames / password must be MANUALLY added by you, in your CPanel, and then you let know to your members, the username / password so they can login . Or, which is the same, they ask you a specific username / password, and only after you add those to the list of allowed usernames/passwords, through your CPanel, they will be able to login. This way of protecting an area of the site is described in http://www.vodahost.com/demowolf/x3/cpanel-x3-protect.html


2. The second method is by using a script that allows users to register themselves, and, after account activation, they can login and visit the protected pages. This is, in my opinion, FAR more professional than the first method, and allows you also some more things. This method is described in BVs new built in Login system a brief tutorial.

Ok, I'll read this about 30 times and see if it will sink in,,,I have a very thick skull. Great for golf balls to bounce off of. Now, Im trying to get the login stuff fixed up. I have the registration stuff all set, I fill out all the stuff and it registers on the admin page perfectly, (I dont see the password),,,,,,,,but, when I go to the login, put in the same info that I registered with, it doesn't go to the specified page. It goes to my error page. What I am I doing wrong in coding it?

I like the second option you mentioned, but where do I get this script and where do I put in on the admin. page. I looked all thru the tutorial but didn't see anything about the 2nd option, the scripting.

NavalDesign, I m still stuck on this one. Where do I get this script for the 2nd option? It seems that there should be one already to go, it s a common registration login item,,,,,,,,,I think.

BV's login scrript is already built in in BV!

The Tutorial explains how to use it and which icons to click on.

Of course, you need the last BV version, 11.4 G.
