    Default Password Protect Certain Pages

    Hi
    For my property management section I want to include an 'owner page' where they can see our weekly/monthly checklists, bills paid etc but obviously it must be kept secure so we need to password protect each individual page. I have a php script which will require the owner to enter a password when they click their link but my problem is where will the owner pages be stored if i create the pages via Page Editor. I need to drop my PHP Script File in the same directory as the pages I want to protect.
    I have gone through the documentation and found the Public and Main Template section but hit a brick wall when trying to work out where my new pages fit into everything

    Also with OR does anyone know if this would even work, I have tested on an old site I had but the web structure is totally different.

    Cheers

    Actually I had a brainwave and have set it up with passworded directories and created the owners report page independently of OR. Seems to work ok but am wondering how secure a passworded directory is, the page itself will not contain any real sensative information but mainly just Checks Completed, Any Damage, Bills Paid (eg water, electric etc).

    If you use weak passwords, it won't be very secure no matter how you do it.

    Yeah, going for 12 characters with random numbers, letters and symbols. Passwords will be on the contracts so client should always keep that safe.
