Hi experts,

I am using a frontpage form to collect information from my website visitors, and the form collects their first name and their email address.

How would I go about having a secure log in area that would work by using what the person signed up with?

For example, to log into a secure area that would be protected, the visitor would inout their name and their email address to gain access to the secure area?

I would prefer to do all this in frontapage, if it can be done this way.

I have the form data saved in the _private folder of the root.

Cheers guys, and thanks in advance for your help!

For doing this you need to know some scripting languages, ASP or PHP with javascript.

You should maintain a database either MS Access or My SQL or SQL.

You can design a form for collecting the name and email address with some password. Store it in  the database. So, next time if the user logs in with his/her name and email, you can check with the database and redirect them accordingly.

If you need any further help, please ask.

Hi cyberwebservice,

I am collecting details from people and it is saving to a text file as csv.

Could you demonstrate to me how I could implement this to work? From my limited knowledge I would imagine that somehow my secure log in area would read into the txt file, look for the person's email address, check to see if it is on the list, and if inputted correctly, allow them in!

It's nothing too secure, just a free pdf i would like people to download after signing up.


Cheers for all the help cyberwebservice,


Kevin
