Solved Help Regarding Password Protected Forum

Post by Roxanne S. on November 26th 2011, 12:43 am

Hello! I've seen this trick before but I never get to make it work.

http://help.forumotion.com/t76762-create-password-protected-forum

I'm a bit confused last night thinking about this. I've already created the required HTML page there and put the script unto the head tags then, I put in this:
Code:
<a href="#" onClick="PlanA(); return false">Click Here To Enter Password !</a>
On the body tags. I created the HTML Page and even created a page if one inputs the wrong password. But here's my question. How can I make the forum in the category link to the HTML Page, where it asks the password, before letting the member in the forum itself?

Is it possible to do or not good at all?

Thanks for the help! I hope I've put this is in the right Category! Smile

If you only have one HTML page, you could make it your home page. When members visit your forum, the HTML page would load first.

Um, the "Forum" you are talking about is not what I meant. What I mean is: How to create a password protected forum. The word "Forum" I mean here is the forum under a certain category. Or I'm mistaken in calling it a forum? :|

Anyway, thanks for your time though. I hope I could see more posts that could help me with my problem. Still not solved... Waiting for more answers...
