Password Prompt Script??

Postby emiko08 » Fri, 19 May 2006 7:23 pm

Oh! It's me again! :P

Hello.
This time I need a help about Password Prompt Script.


<SCRIPT>

var getin = prompt("password?","")
if (getin=="peppermint")
{
alert('You got it! In you go...')
location.href='http://www.yaplog.com/xxxxxx'
}
else
{
if (getin=="null")
{location.href='nope2.,html'}
else
if (getin!="peppermint")
{location.href='nope.html'}
}
</SCRIPT>


above is the script. of course, my password isn't peppermint. thats beside the point :P

when i type the correct password, it directs me to my page 'http://www.yaplog.com/xxxxxx' but when the page reloads, it asks for the password again. and when i type in the password, the same thing happens; the page would reload and it would ask for my password again.
could someone help to figure this out? having too many people reading my personal blog i really don't like it.


thankkkkkkks!

Javascript is not the way to go. you should be using ASP/PHP/coldfusion and cookies.

Javascript cannot "remember" that you already set the password. Also, anyone who knows how to right click -> View source will see your password.

I suggest you do a google search for "how to password protect your webpage"

Why don't you set permissions on the folder where you're website resides? Your webhost control panel should provide for this.
