member sign in on page password protected box

I would like to place on a page on the left under other text boxes, a log in area/box for members to sign in, similar to this:
http://delphi.about.com/od/windowsshe...
but a bit nicer. This will then take me through to the page for members only.
I would prefer not to click the page link, which would then go to a page which asks for password, and then to the page. Is this possible? And how do I do this.? thks as usual.

There isn't anything on Yola yet for membership, though there will be...one day...uhh...I hope. As an alternative, I'm going to use http://www.authpro.com/ once someone answers my question and I can get back into Yola. It seems really useful. :D

I'm trying to find the installation instructions on their site to see whether it is possible, and I'm failing :) Are you able to see their steps on how it's done?

Unfortunately, you'd have to register to see how to install it on the website. But this is how you do it: sign up on AuthPro, submit a username/pass for yourself and the website link. Then decide how you want the members to join - automatically, email verification, your verification, make the accounts, require payment. Then you make a page that the members will be redirected to if the member logs in successfully. That's it. After that a link will be provided to an off-Yola webpage that will be the login form. They use this code to protect the pages if a member is not logged in:

(script language="JavaScript" src="[This is the link to the login page]&action=pp")
(/script)

Obviously the () would be [].

So, the login feature is actually on one of their pages? It work - I would recommend that you give it a try and let us know :) Javascript snippets do usually work - you can use the HTML widget to add the code to your page.

Hi Jen,

SlyCooperFan1 is right, there isn't a member signup and login feature on Yola.

You can password protect particular pages on your site: http://www.yola.com/customer-support/....

You can also try using Google Friend Connect. You can find information on how to add it to your site with this tutorial: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/google-....

Well, the link Marije gave, http://www.yola.com/customer-support/... is the way to password protect the home page. The page named "index" is your home page by default. You just need to password protect "index" and the visitors will be required to enter the same username and password every time regardless of who's accessing the site. After they do, every page will be open.

SlyCooperFan1, thks for keeping track of this. I think I did not explain myself correctly.
I do not wish to have the index/home page protected. All I wish for is that they can visit a page, say photographs, but I wish to put a link on the home/index page which they can put the password into which will then take them thru to the photo page. No other pages to be protected at all. The only thing I wld like to do is have them sort of 'sign in' to get thru to the photo page, as don't want anyone else to get there. So like a password protected page, except one does the sign in for that page on the home/index page.
Trust this is a little more explanatory.!

OHHHHHH. Yes, that was more explanatory. I know what you're trying to say now, and I don't think that's possible either. Though what you could do is, instead of protecting the index page, protect "photographs". That way a user/pass will be required for only that page.

Yes. Yes. gosh, I know what I am talking about, but to put down in b/white! All I wish themto do is when they arrive at site, they will see down on the left a box on the index/home page which they can put the password into and when they press the go button will take to the protected photo page. do not wish another blank page to come up with the request to enter password. Wish to do that on the index page . Not protecting index/home. But just a simple box they enter the pword in on the index/home which then takes them to the password protected photo page immediately.???

Which is why I said, "and I don't think that's possible either." xD Just another feature you might have to wait for.

Something to try...I'm not sure it would work 1) you would have to have a way to give the user the login name and password first 2) Protect the photograph page 3) Put an iframe for the password page on the index page. Thus, they would see the password box on the index page, type in the password and it would then go to the photograph page. Again, I'm not sure this would work but it's something to try.

Hi dmccabe569

Yola does not have a membership feature. However, you can have a look at the Google Friend Connect tutorial for more details about adding a membership login.

Let us know if you have more questions or need further assistance.
