Is there some way to keep any track of member check-ins without doing a data base?? I will be designing a site that will have about 1400 members. There is only one level of membership. There will be a unique member ID and password for each member.

I was trying to think of someway that I could pull stats without a database. For instance, if each login took each member to their own page, then stats from my host server tells me how many hits there were on each page and that info might be useful. However, that puts an extra page in the process for each member (and of course in the website).

Any ideas?? It isn't worth the cost of a data base so it probably isn't worth doing unless someone has a great idea.

Thanks!!!

Password protect folders

Am using this protected page script and have a number of image galleries (unprotected) using simple viewer and obviously in their own folders, however I would like to protect one gallery so it requires login to access. I understand that php can't protect folders, can anyone suggest an alternative (simple) method of protecting this folder?

Thanks

Most hosting companies nowdays offer a "Protected Directories" feature through the hosting account control panel. If yours does also, password protect the folder from there. It would be logical to place the relevant pages in the same protected directory.

I always make sure that my pwds in php are MD5'd.
madjamonline,

I agree that hashing passwords (md5, sha1) is more secure. I didn't use this technics in order to keep it clear for WebBuilder users.

Of course I and you will understand that NASA will not use my script :wink:
Sorry for the late post! Yeah I agree. I made a suggestion that the password protect in Wb6 should have MySql database support because with all of my members areas, there is soooo much code! I decided I am going to make a professional extension suite for members areas for WB6 so I will be sharing that with you all when it is done. It will have support for remember me functions, admin areas, extra user fields, profile info for user, database support (mysql) and more! Of course it is going to take a while... :wink:
Are you still planning to make the extension or have you make it already?

Set a default Destination page in the "login" tool. All users will be sent to this page.
Then, in this page, add the "Redirect user" tool to define the page where each user will be redirected.

The user will not even know or see that there is a "redirect". He will only see the page he is supposed to see.

OR (better solution):

Use (with MySQL) the DBTS Login tools that allow the administrator to set a specific page (after login) for each user.
