Apologies,

I'll try to clear up a few things:

I didn't intend it for use only with paid subscriptions (I appreciate what you're saying OooO), that was just an example.

Primarily I'm looking for a system of 'closing off' areas of a site, any site, by restricting access to specific users (members). I know .htaccess can do this, but I was looking for something a bit more flexible that offered more features than a simple 'popup' username and password option, and that would allow for 'members' to have their passwords emailed to them if they forget, etc. and for the 'admin' to be able to email certain groups/areas members.

I also didn't intend for it to be used exlusively with GT's other products, rather for it to be a separate package that anyone could install on any server, and who's login form HTML code could be used on any page.

I'll explain how I came about suggesting it here, that may help:

I operate a website design company and would like to offer additional pages/sections to my clients that are not 'public domain'. Some of the information would be client-specific and sensitive, so rather than creating a series of directories and adding .htaccess files for each client, I was looking for something that would allow me to use a single form for all my clients and direct them to their 'area' based on their 'record' details.

With the addition of a mailing back-end on the admin, it would be a great way of communicating with my clients (I know I could use a mailing list!) and would offer a bit more flexibility than plain .htaccess files.

Maybe I'm not thinking about it straight, but does this give you a better idea of what I'm looking for?

GT has such an area here, for paid-up members to download files, etc. where you login with your email address and password - that's the sort of thing I'm looking for.

If there's a package that already does this at a reasonable price, then please let me know the URL :)

All the best
Shaun
