There are various ways of doing this either server side or pagewise with PHP - how secure are you wanting to be?

Just to keep out casual visitors or government class security.

One of the easiest ways is to create a new folder in your FW document and put the page you want to protect into it.

When the site is uploaded to your server a new folder is created there.

Using your hosting company’s Control Panel you should be able to use the function: Password Protect Directories.

Using this you can set a username/password combination for any folder on your server and when someone trys to access a page within that folder they will be asked for a username and password before they are allowed in.

Thanks David,

I do not need high level security - I just want to keep pages private to different clients. Is there a way to do it from within FW without having to go to my hosting comany’s site (and control panel?)

Thanks,

Jon

Yes if you make your page a PHP page and add some code

Have a look at PHP Pass by Howard Yeend 欧洲杯直播,2021欧洲杯直播,欧洲杯高清直播网

Easy to include in any FW page.

It shouldn’t be a chore to use your Control Panel - there is lots of stuff in there that you should be familiar with and most hosters offer video tutorials and comprehensive help sections.

There is plenty there that you cannot hope to do within FW and once you are a bit more familiar with it not really very scary!

Something like PPD can take just a few seconds to set up,
