Members Area - Unique Content - $600

login_advancedl.pngYou need a password protected members area, and you need unique content for each member/group. This functionality let's that happen. If you have an info site where you'll need a members area that displays content unique to the user logged in, then this functionality is for you.

Your users will log in with their own username and password, and have the website display content unique to them. With this functionality, you'll be able to setup as many usernames and passwords as you'd like. With each username you setup, you'll be able to edit the content that displays for that user. If any non-logged in members attempt to view the members area, the content will not be displayed. If an incorrect username/password is entered, the viewer will not be allowed into the members area.

The Details...

The Unique Content Members Area is very flexible. You can define permissions for users on either the page level, or on the block level. For example, if you wanted to setup a page available to all members, but display a part of that page (a block) only to an individual user, this is possible. Alternatively, you can set up an entire page that will only be available for a unique user – it's up to you. The user themselves will not be able to add/edit any of the content themselves - all content will be created/maintained by you. The allocation of usernames/passwords is a manual process. Essentially, the process is that you'll log in to your CMS with your username/password, and create a username and password for each user, within the CMS. The next step is to setup the content that will display for that user. Full instructions will be provided. You will provide usernames/passwords to your clients however you wish - usernames/passwords/forgotten passwords will not be automatically emailed to the customer. You'll also have the ability to update the usernames/passwords, and disable users as you wish. If a user goes to the URL of a password protected page, it will display a non-branded generic login screen, pictured on this page. This page is system generated and unable to be customised.

Please note that the members area does not use SSL encryption. The members area is ideal for displaying text content unique to any particular user. If the members area is used to display files/downloads, please keep in mind that although non-logged in members will not be able to see any links to the files, and the files will not be able to be found by browsing the site, if a member reveals the specific file URL to a non-logged in member, the file will still be able to display. This isn't a problem for most in 99% of cases, but if sensitive confidential information is to be stored in the members area, a corporate-grade security behind an SSL firewall is recommended.
