Password Protection Can't Post

I need a simple pearl cgi password protection program for a free members section.
We use windows 98 and are on a unix server. We need the following features.

1. the program automatically adds the users
2. email the member when added
3. email me with new member details
4. unlimited members

Thanks in advance

User Manage does most of what you want.

"This site is currently unavailable due to recent server problems."

Surpisingly enough, The Perl Archive lists some password protection scripts, too: http://www.perlarchive.com/guide/Password_Protection/

as well as some membership manager tools: http://www.perlarchive.com/guide/Membership_Manager/index.shtml

I'll tell you how to make your links active, Neil, if you let us advertise the Perl Archive on your sites, too. Crazy

I am aware that Perl Archive lists such scripts. But whilst the site may allow users to rate the scripts. I see no obvious ways of viewing script ratings for individual programs which surely defeats the purpose of haivng such a feature. The CGI Resource Index offers this feature and Locked Area is the highest rated and commented resource in the Password Protection category so surely offering that link was fine!

And yes, CGIScriptReview.com is down at the moment. It's because it's currently still in development and between hosts.

>I'll tell you how to make your links active, Neil, if you let us advertise the Perl Archive on your sites, too


What did you mean by that? Surely the fact that I have two urls in my signature. Is that against the rules? As far as i'm aware the signature is for listing details about my self. In this case I chose to put two of my site urls. Lots of people do it. Yes?

Yes, we've struggled with the ratings feature, trying to figure out how to make it fair, accurate, and meaningful. I don't trust ratings systems in general because I suspect they're more often a measure of how many friends and IP numbers the programmer has than a valid reflection of the quality of the program.

The lack of a rating doesn't necessarily mean that a program is not good; nor does a high rating guarantee that a program is good. When we publish script ratings, we're stricter than most sites in an effort to make the ratings meaningful.

We offer a forum devoted to discussion of listed programs. It's sadly not used much, but if it were more active, I'd find that a lot more useful than a ratings system.

We're not crazy about seeing links to our competition here -- ABC doesn't advertise on CBS, you know -- but if it wasn't fine, I would have deleted it. Would have made more sense to me to post an active hyperlink to the script along with some details of the program, but you can do it however you want.

Of course not ... I was kiddin' ya ... sheesh. I think people do find it more useful if they can actually click on the hyperlink, rather than cutting and pasting it, but again, it's certainly not a requirement.

Re: Password Protection [In reply to] Can't Post

Well, sadly, I don't have 700 friends to go and rate my script so I can safely say that I have had nothing to do with the rating being rigged.
I can understand the comment that it's hard to know whether ratings are honest or not. But if you try Locked Area is comparison to other programs in it's field you will realise it is a reasonably good script considering it's free.

I hope that nobody thinks I was implying otherwise. I just wanted to explain our thoughts on the Perl Archive's rating system, which is active by the way ... we just have some limits in place that the other sites don't.

Your script looks fine except for the fact that I need the following feature which your script does not have.

Member has access to free directory for only 30 days and then the member
will be automatically removed by program.

View my post 4/24/2001

Thanks in advance.

William Smith.

Check out Account Manager Pro (commercial) or Account Manager LITE (shareware).

Actually, it's the pro version that automatically cancels members after x days.

Thanks but ,
I have already checked it out.

It does not have all of the features that I need.

See my 4/24/01 post

Thanks anyway

Re: Password Protection [In reply to] Can't Post

More helpful would be a list of features you need but it doesn't have.

I don't see the 4/24 post you referred to. Perhaps you can provide a url to it?

Re: Password Protection [In reply to] Can't Post

Our CRITICAL needs are the following 7

We have found no program that contains ALL 7

1. Password protection for one or more directory.
2. Automatic member registration.
3. Automatic e-mail notification to member and site owner.
4. Member has access to free directory for only 30-60 or 90 etc. days at the owner’s discretion after that period will be automatically removed by program.
5. A feature that will stop that same member from using a different
username and password to re-join as a free member again.
6. Must be hands free for the owner (program performs all functions).
7. E-mails member (username-password ) information to confirm valid e-mail address.

I believe "Locked Area Pro" contains all but number 4

With the other features that you are considering adding...you would have a powerhouse of a program.

Sincerely
William Smith

Try the Members Admin CGI /pro /enterpprise /sql script.
That scipt can do every thing what you want.

And I still found it the best one I now.

Account Manager is bugy and not secure.
