Members Only Area

software development

#1

Anyone know of any good tutorials/free scripts to implement a “Members Only” area? Thanks!

thats kind of a subjective question. it depends on how detailed you want the members only section to be.

like:
-a gateway to get to a section or page
(or)
-a membership type setup where users register and you track them and such

if you are looking for the former, complex and full of features, heres a good tutorial http://php4all.org/?nav=tutorials&showtut&tid=56&cat=PHP

if you want the latter (more basic/ a per page type thing) you can look to this tutorial http://howtocode.net/tutorials/phpMemberSystem.php

a great site in general for tutorials is http://www.phpfreaks.com/tutorials.php

and of course I am just assuming you want to make it with php, there are other options out there. I think theres a way in the dreamhost panel to do a simpler, but just as good, job of it.

thanks for the reply! actually, i have phpbb on my website right now, and i’ve been trying to research using phpBB’s authentication and database as my site’s authentication too. so far i havent come up with much – mostly i’ve found information the other way around (using a site authentication as phpbb’s authentication)…
