The e-commerce.

Membership or User Name/Password REQUIRED


Recommended Posts

I am looking for a module that will require a person to have a subscription BEFORE allowing them to view the store. I noticed a few modules that look like they will do this but I was a little confused by the descriptions if they would do exactly what I needed. SO, I thought I would ask if anyone has used a similar script and what you think of it?


Some of the things I would like to see include:


One user name and password for the entire site. Once they are "in" the customer should not have to input another user name and password.


No part of the store is visible until the customer "logs in."


If customer forgets his or her password, there should be an option to automatically retreive any forgotten password or user name.


On the login page there needs to not only be a way to register a FREE account, but a paragraph or two that explains why we are asking individuals to sign in first before viewing the store.


Thanks for the input.

Have you considered placing your entire store behind

a secure shell, secure socket layer, or proxy server?


You could have users login to one computer with whatever

login program you like.


Upon successful login, this first computer would pass each

request to your osCommerce server, which would relay the

request back to the Proxy server, which then delivers the page

content to the Logged In user.


I'm doing something like this now on a corporate network and

thus far all tests have been successful.


Good luck from
