Thread: Client login - Please help!

    Client login - Please help!


    I'm wondering if anyone can suggest how to handle a basic client login. I'm doing graphic design for a client and I want them to be able to view the progress of the work I'm doing for them online by visiting my website. I want them to go to my website into a folder specifically for their business and then have to enter a password to be able to view the contents. I'm looking for a simple solution. Something like:

    1) First the client enters my website URL followed by the folder name of their business -

    2) Window prompt pops up asking for username and password.

    3) Client enters in their specific username and password that I provide them with and it loads the "index of..." directory with a list of their files.

    I am fairly new to this, so any ideas how to do this would be extremely helpful!
    Thanks in advance!

    That's rather simple, though, when you have something basic there's usually an easy breach or you will nedd to black right clicks with a window pop-up and put the page in a frame, and load in the js So the source is relatively hidden. How secure would it need to be?

    Thanks for the response! If what you suggested adds more then just a little bit of work, then I don't want to bother with it right now because I don't really need high security yet. I just want something simple like I suggested doing because it's something temporary for people to see progress. Any other tips would be awesome, thanks!

    Sorry about the delay, forgot about this one

    I just whipped up this, a basic example of a login
    HTML Code:
    <script language="Javascript">
    var triesLeft = 3;
    function disAllowRightClick() {
       if (event.button==2) {
           alert('Did you know?:\nEvery time you right click a whale dies.');
    function login() {
      var valid = true;
      popPassVal.innerHTML = "";
      popUserVal.innerHTML = "";
      popMessageVal.innerHTML = "";
      var user1 = 'memberhome.html';//Set up user's default log in homepage
      var user2 = 'memberhome.html';//Set up user's default log in homepage
      var user3 = 'memberhome.html';//Set up user's default log in homepage
      var user4 = 'memberhome.html';//Set up user's default log in homepage
      var user = document.log.user.value;
      var pass = document.log.pass.value;
      if (user == '' || user == undefined) {
        popUserVal.innerHTML = "<font color='#FF0000'>Please enter a username.</font>";
        valid = false;
      if (pass == '' || pass == undefined) {
        popPassVal.innerHTML = "<font color='#FF0000'>Please enter a password.</font>";
        valid = false;
      if (valid) {
    Sets up usernames and passwords
    Format is: user == "username" && pass == "users_password"
        if (user == "user1" &&  pass == "pass1") {  
        } else if (user == "user2" && pass == "pass2") { 
        } else if (user == "user3" && pass == "pass3") { 
        } else if (user == "user4" && pass == "pass4") { 
               window.location = user4;
        } else {//Not a user
               popMessageVal.innerHTML = "<font color='#FF0000'>Sorry,\n\n\"<b>"+user+"</b>\" is not a member!<br />"+triesLeft+" tries left.</font>";
               triesLeft == 0 ? window.location = "" : triesLeft--;
    <form name="log">
    <font size="2" face="times">
    <div id="popMessageVal"><br /></div>
    <br />
    <input type="text" name="user" size="10" />
    <div id="popUserVal"><br /></div>
    <input type="password" name="pass" size="10" />
    <div id="popPassVal"><br /></div>
    <input name="Submit" type="button"  value="Log In" onClick="login()" size="10" />
