    htaccess password login page

    Hi there

    Is it possible to have a login page for a htaccess password protected directory?

    Rather than the pop-up box appearing, I would rather a page with a form that asks for the username and password an then directs the user when clicking "log in" to the password protected area - without the pop-up box appearing.

    Your help would be much appreciated.
    See ya

    Ivy.

    From what I know, you can only have the popup with htaccess, but don't quote me on that. I don't know much about it

    Take a look at this: http://forums.devshed.com/archive/t-59748

    As said in that thread, note that it is a very insecure method. From what it looks like, there is no secure method for doing it through a page.
