Hello all and Merry Christmas! :help:

I, a self-taught one, built a site and have been trying to create a restricted section for members only. My main site was a template modified in Dreamweaver.

My concern: I have been trying to create a restricted access subsite with FrontPage 2003 (with the 2002 Server Extensions, not the Sharepoint business). It was working fine when I first made it and then for some reason now when I try to test it, it refuses to recognize my test usernames or passwords, can't tell which or why!

So I deleted the first subsite and rebuilt it. No cigar! Keeps saying "Authorization Required." Grrrr!!! :whistling: Is it that Frontpage and FTP are not compatible to use together? I thought that had been resolved!

I am ready to completely scrap this FrontPage method, because I have been fiddling with this thing for far too long! :blink:

Someone please help! I appreciate all that is done here, and any assistance (even starting from scratch) would be gratefully received! TIA!

There is an article here on how to use FrontPage to create a restricted area of your site:

If you have more questions, someone with some more FrontPage expertise will be sure to stop by (I'm not a huge FrontPage fan and don't use it myself).

Happy Holidays :whistling:

thanks for responding! the article you referenced is the article i have been using to build the restricted subsite, but alas, something is not working. that means i am by no means tied to frontpage, so if there is another way to do it, by all means i am open to using it!

TIA!

You can try .htaccess password protection

http://www.javascrip...htaccess3.shtml

Else you could look into something like is used on the forum to let only members post. I am working on such a system right now for something one of the admins here is putting together.
