    This can t be done in that manner. You ll need to use the .htaccess file, if you re using Apache. Lee On 8/22/2006 09:32 PM, warrenguy2005 wrote: ...

        The only problem is that the JavaScript files (and others) can be
        viewed by others. Hence the warning on the page: "They are an
        elementary attempt to protect a site and should NOT be used to
        protect top secret information. They just keep the amateurs out. Pros
        can infiltrate such sites with these forms of protection."

        If the security is not real important, then their great. But if you
        require tight security, JavaScript will not provide it.

        (BTW, thanks for the plug, I manage that site for Jupitermedia. New
        scripts are always welcome [sorry, cheap plug].)

          The server manual. It depends on the type of server you are on and what you
          have access to. As others already have said, you can provide a facade of
          security with JavaScript but it won't fool anyone who really wants in. If
          you are on an Apache server google ".htaccess password" or "Apache basic
          authentication". Add "tutorial" to the mix if you want a step by step guide.
