The easiest way to so this is to create a second tlx design file and publish it as a subdirectory of you main website. In your website cPanel there is a SIMPLE, EASY and SECURE way to protect that subdirectory. If you have only one or many pages in that subdirectory, it won't matter. Any page in that subdirectory would require a password to enter. Once you enter the password, you can wander through the directory freely. You don't have to unlock each page!
HOW TO DO IT:
- In CSB:
The publishing settings are the same as the main design file (same user name, password, address, etc). Then you add ONE more item. When you add a subdirectory, just check the box to publish to a subdirectory, and name the subdirectory. Publish. The name of the subdirectory will appear in your URL. For example, if you call the subdirectory members, the address would look like this: http://www.yourdowmain.com/members/ Please look at this page about making subdirectories and see the print screen of the publishing settings for reference.
Once you have published the the subdirectory, you can now set it for private viewing. Open your cPANEL Look for the feature that says "Web Protect" or "Password protect directories" (might be on your second row of cPanel icons) and click it. You will then see a list of folders on your site. Find the one you want to protect. Click it. You will get a page with options. The box at the top (Folder requires password) needs to be checked. Save it. Below you would add your user name & password combinations.

Feel free to right click the silly little forum images I use and save them to your own website space.
Then link to your own site. Please don't hotlink to my website to use the images. Thanks!

For a username and password 'page' that would match your site you can do a search for 'php password protection' and you will get lots of sites that have the code so you can intigrate it into your site. How secure are they? I dunno.
Personally I don't mind the popup window version. You know it's secure and don't have to worry about code!

New Problem: Now I can't find the sub-directory on CSB4 in order to make changes to the pages in the sub-directory
I found the sub on the c-panel but can't make changes there unless I do it all via html
Isn't there any way that I can get back to these pages via CSB program?

My search for a password protect page brought me here and I never even noticed what forum I was in.
Sorry about that.
