I am trying to design a website with a disclaimer page. If you agree you can enter and if you dont agree with the terms you cannot enter. This is my first website that I am designing and would like to know if someone can tell me step by step how to make this page? Thanks,

You can lock and password protect some of your pages. Get them to sign up through a signup form, mail them the password and they can then login and get access. Others can't see those pages. Not the ideal situation, but can work for you.

Hi Richard,

The problem here is users can enter the site from any page which is listed with search engines, you could password protect them all like dersal says but it depends if this is what you wanted. It depends how important the disclaimer is.

1. Your 'index' page would be your disclaimer page. On this page have your disclaimer text and below have 2 image links (see how here). 1 link (agree) would go into the site and the other (disagree) could go anywhere, google.com for example.
You should also when making the page click 'edit menu' and remove this page from the main menu.

Then you have options, you could either make 1 more unprotected page have a little bit about the site and give on this page the password for the rest of the site (also add a 'have you read the disclaimer' and link back to the index page if they have not) just incase they come straight into that page. This page would also not be in the main menu.

I would suggest however not having all your pages password protected - perhaps add a small link on every page asking if the user has agreed to the licence.

Lee.

Thanks for the help UK Duke. That problem is solved. Now I have the disclaimer page up and customers can enter thru in the links at the top of the page. I want to set it up to make the only way to enter is by Clicking on "I Agree" which is at the bottom of the page. How do I do away with the links at the top of the disclaimer page?
