It depends on what the content is. I think the easiest but efficient way of handling it is to create an error page with login form:

Access Denied, Please provide a valid username and password:



On all the pages you want to secure look for the session you set to validate access, if the session does not exist redirect them to the error page.

For example add this to the top of all the pages:

<?
session_start();

if(!isset($session_variable)) // if($session_variable != "whatever"
{
header("Location: path/to/error.php");
}
?>


If the session does was not set they will be immediately redirected to the error page.
