From what I have seen there are a lot of people who would like to create a members only area on their web site but have no knowledge of how to set one up. Well if your host supports PHP and mySQL then what I am about to describe will make things a whole lot easier for you to set one up.
To be able to use this toolkit you should first Check the Server to ensure that your host supports PHP. You will also need to have a mySQL database that you can use to store the login table that this toolkit uses. Everything else is supplied and the scripts are usable as supplied with no actual PHP programming knowledge required.
The toolkit contains a number of complete web pages that perform the basic functions required to maintain your member's area as well as function libraries that contain everything necessary to maintain a members only area on your site. There are also example pages that show you what you need to add to your pages to place them into the members area. The following complete pages are supplied:
In addition to these complete pages you also get pages that show you:
The code supplied in the toolkit uses several techniques to reduce the possibility of people breaking into your members only area. Some of these are:
You can sign up for an account and see how most of the script functions. All of the pages you see are included in the package (of course you don't have to use all of them) as well as the administrator functionality previously described (and which for obvious reasons I haven't provided acces to).
Detailed instructions for how to install the toolkit are included with the script. Please note that if you wish to use this script for anything beyond creating basic password protected pages then you will require a knowledge of PHP so as to be able to integrate this script with the other functuionality that you require.
Unfortunately, I have to try to fund the running of this web site somehow and so I have decided to charge a nominal amount for server side scripts such as this one. Use the following form to purchase the Password Protection Toolkit for the really cheap price (considering all of the pages and functionality that you get) of just $88.00 USD (Australian residents price is $88.00 AUD including GST). All purchases include 12 months free support including all updates to the script released during that time. If you have a valid discount code then enter it to purchase this script at an even lower price otherwise just leave the discount field blank, select the currency to make your payment and then press the buy now button. The script will be automatically emailed to you as soon as Paypal verifies your payment
Before you purchase this script you should reread the above information to ensure that the script will work on your server. If you cancel at any point during the payment process, you will be returned to this page.
Please make sure that the email account that you supply to Paypal will accept emails with attached zip files from addresses at felgall.com as otherwise your spam filtering may delete your purchase.
