    john - i woudnt suggest you sing a pass protected site...unless if its a porn site or a site only meant for a certain users..but general public wont like to register on a site first and then view the contents of it later, however if ur talking of password protected in certain fields of your site like chat dating etc etc...then u need a database and i suggest my fav script lan "ASP"

    Regards
    TGO

    John, do you want a separate id and password for each user (a bit of a hassle... especially when they start forgetting them) or one id/password for everyone (fairly easy to do)?

    Hi TGQ and Cedric,

    Well the public will still be able to access the site but the password protected part are for the taxi drivers to be able to log in and read any news letters or annoncements which are not for the general public view.

    At the moment each driver has been issued with a pin number and driver id in order for them to log into our data dispatch radio system (they have a small terminal in the car) so I will use the same info for the website, this gets over the issue of them forgetting.

    So, I have the user ID and I have the passwords, all I need is the interface.

    Back to you guys.

    regards John

    Click Here for about 3 php user management scripts.

    You may be able to just use .htaccess to password protect for a particular folder on your site. If you wont have to generate passwords in real time and there aren't very many users expected.

    Hi Mary,
    Its going very well, thanks for asking. Im working on a makeover that will really look alot better. I'm getting several signups but some are less than desirable.

    If you join email me and tell me your username here at ABW and I'll add $15 for anyone to tryout. When the redesign goes live I'll be redirecting alot of traffic to it. It gets quite a bit just as it is but I will quadruple it when I think it looks good enough.

    John, If you need any info on .htaccess let me know and I'll try to explain it in simple terms. It's really quite easy and not as hard as it seems.

    John, there are a variety of ways to handle password protection. The first thing you need to do is find out from your service provider what type of server you are on (password protection options are very different between IIS and Apache).

    If you're looking for an HTML answer, the answer is HTML is not sufficient for your needs. If you're looking for a FrontPage answer, you're out of my ballpark and I can't be of assistance.

    But first, you need to know about your server.
