KompoZer: Novice comments !!

As no-one has posted about NVU for a while i thought i'd post my thoughts. As a teacher i wanted to set up a site for my students. I have found the portability very useful and wish to thank John Haller for his hard work. I add bits to pages at work and home, finding the combination of portable browser (with all my bookmarks) and NVU a godsend. I use eMindMaps for some of the layout - NVU for editing and publishing. [I use the firefox ftp for posting some files and have had no problems. The pluggin seems much better than the other ftp client i tried . . . but then i don't have the computing knowledge to know its pitfalls if there are any]. I wouldn't have progressed as far as i have in a couple of weeks if it hadn't been for this. When completed i'll ask for feedback!

I've just learnt from reading one or two sites. eMindMaps is a great tool for ease of setting up. One thing i have not mastered and would be grateful for advice - how can one put in a password in order to limit access to certain parts of a site? In my case its student names.

thanks

Assuming..

Assuming that your server is running Apache or is based on NCSA Mosaic, the following tutorial should provide adequate access control. I have been using the technique for years and although there have been attempts, no has successfully broken in. see: http://hoohoo.ncsa.uiuc.edu/docs/tutorials/user.html

It is a good idea to check with your service provider as not all provide the access to set up access control with out using their tools.

Clair Thanks for your reply.

Clair

Thanks for your reply. Perhaps i should have said that i was only after a low level type of restriction - rather than a 'fortress' type login and password system for an entire site.

When i did some database programming years ago i simply put in a pop-up window for certain areas. In the current case it's simply to restrict children's names from anybody snooping.

I haven't had a chance to look at your link but will do shortly.
