Front Page 2000 Problem with Password Restriction
Posted on 2004-04-19
I am having some trouble with Front Page Passwords, and I am hoping that you can help!
I have a simple survey that I created in Front Page. However, I need to first have the potential users enter a generic, universal passcode in order to gain access to the site. (This is to keep the responses limited to those who receive requests).
What I tried:
My thought was to set up a page that simply requests the passcode ("Survey2004") in a simple textbox. I set up the textbox to only accept responses equal to "Survey2004". Upon entering the correct passcode, they should be taken them to the survey. Upon entering the wrong passcode, I set up the confirmation page to tell them that their passcode is wrong and please try again.
1. Upon entering the right passcode, the user is directed to a page other than the survey. ???
2. Upon entering the wrong passcode, a messagebox appears that tells them what the password should be. ???
3. Upon leaving the passcode empty, they are directed to the confirmation page that tells them that their passcode is wrong and please try again. ???
I look forward to hearing from you about how to fix this issue. The timeframe involved is certainly tight.
Thanks in advance! --Ren
