    Identify User?

    I'm not really sure if this is a JavaScript question, but I'll ask it here anyway.
    What I need is something that will change the page based on the user. For instance, if a user logs in, it will take them to the parts of the site that they have signed up for. Furthermore, these parts of the site should be restricted for those that haven't signed up.
    I am very new to this side of web-developement, and need a lot of help here.
    For instance, how do I do the password thing? and then make it so based on the user, only certain options (buttons) are available? Like, how do I do the login? and how do I do the code/script?
    Like I said, I don't know if that's JavaScript or not... as far as the identifying end of it goes...... so if it's not, could someone please point me in the right direction? And if it is.... well.... yeah, I need lotts of help. Any would be appreciated.
    thanks

    It can be a JavaScript thing, but the actual URLs can still be used on any computer. If you really want to keep users from going to the wrong place you need to access your server and set passwords and access for all your users.

    You need a server-side language (ASP, PHP, JSP, ...) to implement your requirements. You also need a database or an LDAP directory to manage the users and their access level.
