Hi tileile4,

Are you looking for a way to have a Yola site where visitors can create accounts and login?

Unfortunately we don't have a member register and login feature yet, but we hope to add it in future. We know that many people would like to have people register for accounts and have logins for their sites. We will need to do quite a bit of development to make this possible, so please be patient while we work on this.

You can password protect particular pages on your site, more information on this link: http://www.yola.com/customer-support/....

This might not be quite what you had in mind, but you might want to try using Google Friend Connect (http://www.google.com/friendconnect/). You can find information on how to add it to your site with this tutorial: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/google-....

Please let us know if this service meets your needs or if you have additional requirements as this will help inform our planning.

Hi guys, you can actually use AuthPro! I am using that on my website, and it is awesome! To get unlimited users, you have to have deluxe plan which is only $4.00 USD per month! But right now I am on the free plan which allows 10 members and, it has a lot of stuff you can put on the member page like the Logout link, the Welcome message (such as "Welcome, {person's name that is logged in}") You can see the login box for my site at http://www.nathansmusicstudio.cz.cc/m... (If you'd like to sign up, just click the link on that page) The reason why the members_area page redirects to the login page is because I have the script on there that protects the page for members only. If you sign up on my site, you will have to activate your account first and then you can access the Member's Area! Also, AuthPro gives you the code for the "Edit Profile" link, and they give you the delete account link, the "View profile" link, and lots more! These scripts are very good because all of those links will work for the current member that is online! (Lets say you are online, all of those links will work for your account, and you don't have to create separate pages for each user! It is very cool!) I am going to switch to deluxe soon, but right now, I am on free plan of AuthPro.

This works with my site, I hope it works for you! =)

You can also add a security option for every so much minutes it will log them out! Right now, I have mine set to 60 minutes.
