    Default How to secure webpages

    I want to secure some of my webpages. I want subscribers only to have access to these pages. Although I can add a login page how can I stop someone from copying the entire web address where these pages are located from being passed on to non-subscribers.
    I find secure sites redirecting to the login page. How can I achieve this?

    Thanks, I went back to earlier threads and was able to reconnect. But what happened to my earlier thread where I asked about connecting a form of BV with MySql Database I didn't hear from anyone, was something wrong? Can you help with that issue?
