Password Protected Category

Post by Evilwoott on November 30th 2011, 6:05 am

Hi There,
I was hoping to get some information showing me how to make a password, or by member only access to a category. I see that you can change the permissions to only allow certain members to view forums, but I do not have that same option with categories.
Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

I've created a topic like this but it's still waiting for an answer. It is confusing after all.

Hi Evilwoott,

As you requested, I made it easy for you! loul

Spoiler:
To create your password protected page, you need to do and follow the steps:
1. Open your notepad. Not the one in your admin panel but the one in your computer.
2. Copy and paste this code with an <html> basic layout.

Here's on done for you: (Do not copy-paste yet. Copy-paste the one below this.)
Code:
<html>
<head>
<script language="javascript">
 
<!--
 
function PlanA() {
 
var password = "Marc"
 
var pass = prompt("Enter in the password"," ")
 
if (pass.toLowerCase() == password) {
 
window.location = "http://www.iwebbuddy.com";
 
}
 
else {
 
window.location = "Typlo";
 
}
 
}
 
-->
 
</script>
2. You see the one with the word, "Marc" on it? Replace that with your own password.
3. Then there is also the "http://iwebuddy.com" that's where you can put the hidden web page of you're site where they need to input the password to open that web page.
4. Replace the word, "Typlo" with the link that will redirect the user if he/she input the incorrect password.

Please follow the steps above to create a successful password protected page.

Then once you're done with those. Let's move on to the body section. Just copy-paste the script below to your notepad and once you're done, you can now put it in your site:
Code:
<html>
<head>
<script language="javascript">
 
<!--
 
function PlanA() {
 
var password = "Marc"
 
var pass = prompt("Enter in the password"," ")
 
if (pass.toLowerCase() == password) {
 
window.location = "http://www.iwebbuddy.com";
 
}
 
else {
 
window.location = "Typlo";
 
}
 
}
 
-->
 
</script>
</head>

<body>
<a href="#" onClick="PlanA(); return false">Click here to enter password!</a>
</body>
</html>

Just replace "Click here to enter password!" with the message that you want.

Now you can put it in your site!
Go to Admin Panel >> Modules >> Html and Javascript >> HTML Pages Management >> :add:Create a new html page.

Good luck! Here's a working demo: http://marctestforum2.forumotion.com/demo-password-protect-forum-h29.htm

That code is for creating pass protected html pages,
You cant pass protect forums or categories on forumotion.

You have to create groups then set all the forums permissions for what groups you want to allow to whatever sections and forums on your site Smile
