The e-commerce.

password protect catalog ?


Recommended Posts

Hi I am making a site where customers pay a membership fee and have access to special material. I have an addon that lets me hide/show catalogs to only certain members which is perfect.


The problem is if you where to type www.sitename/productid_52 or what ever directly into the browser bar it will take you right into those hidden categories. Grant it noone could guess the URL or have it until

its unlocked to them however it will eventually get indexed then a simple google search could get you into the hidden member area.


So if I .htaccess the hidden areas a customer that has paid would have to enter a pw everytime they change browser pages in the hidden members area which will not work.


So what can I do? Any addons that will suit me I might have missed?
