Members area


#1

Hello everyone,

I am in the process of building my first webpage. Since I am completely new, I am using frontpage.
My page will have a paid members only section.

  • How do I make a members section? How do I set it up in regards to payment, passwords, log ins etc.

I understand it might be difficult to answer this question from a newbie, but I greatly appreciate any tips and advice. I am so “green”, I need a step by sted guide, but have not been able to find something like that.

Thank you,
Monika

G’day Monika.

I am no expert, but here is my 2 cents worth:

It is possible to set up password protected areas using .htaccess. Take a look at this knowledge base article, and see if it helps:

PayPal may be an (easy) option for your site subscribers to make payments.

Monika-

Sounds like you’re jumping into web design with both feet - good luck.

I’ve never created a site like what you are after, but you should check out all the PHP scripts at Hotscripts. It looks like they’ve got both freeware and commercial software that does what it sounds like you want to accomplish.

I was just reading about some of these scripts… They sound neat; I’ll have to figure out a reason to give some of them a try.
