How do you put passwords on specific pages in a web site ? I don't need fancy encription. I looking for something very similar to this "Experts-exchange" site where you are prompted for a user name and password to get to certain pages. I have a MacOS Internet Server and use Claris home page, Pagemill and Go Live for page creation.

It's just a matter of playing with Web Server settings:
try to go to Web Server administration and look for access control.

Cheers, julio

It is very easy.  You need to have .htaccess & .htpasswd files in the directory.  All pages in that directory will be protected by these files.  .htacces  has access information of all users specified in .htpasswd.  .htpasswd has passwd and user information.  Password in encrypted.  Both files can be edited except encrypted password.  You must be having one utility called htpasswd to create file .htpasswd or add users.
