Customer Login

Recommended Posts

stellitak

I am trying to create a separate page for customer login. Let me explain a bit. I am a composer and for each client, I would like to be able to have a folder at my site that he would be able to access with a unique password. Is that possible? I would like to add a login form somewhere at the site. Is it possible to do that? Many thanks in advance for your help!

There are lots of Wordpress plugins available that do what you're asking. Check them out at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=member&sort=

Good Morning and thank you for your reply! I've tried using WP Login, WP Client File Share, Peter's Login Redirect and Easy FTP Upload but for some reason I can't seem to get it right :( I work with large audio files and what I need is this : - A 'button' on my main navigation called Client Login that once pressed takes clients to a login page. This can be easily done by creating a default page that has a WP login shortcode at the 'content' area. - Once a client logins I want them to be able to see a list of downloadable files I have uploaded for them only. I can 'redirect' the client after login using Peter's Login Redirect. But, the problem is that I cannot find a way to upload large files (say 1GB). I was hoping to find a tutorial similar to this : http://forum.textpattern.com/viewtopic.php?id=25524 A fantastic tutorial but for another CMS :) Any help, comments, suggestions would be really appreciated!

I think I figured it out. Since,however, I am using a local server with MAMP for now, I'd like someone to tell me if I can upload files directly into a folder of WP-content. For example, say I have a new client called "jones". Can I create a new folder in wp-content/uploads/jones and re-direct the client there upon login? If I do that how can I stop them from going to the "Parent Directory". Again, massive thanks for your help!

I don't know a whole lot about file permissions and such but I believe you can keep people from viewing the parent directory by adding in a blank index.html file to the parent folder. You may also be able to restrict access with a .htaccess file in that directory.

My 2c: For storage and exchange of large (size and quantity) files on a local server I advise to consider the use of a dedicated http/ftp/webdav server for security and convenience reasons. Something similar to [url="http://www.crushftp.com/"]CrushFTP[/url].

Thank you both! Jackey, is CrushFTP something I can use within my WP site or something I will have to install separately on the server where I will upload my site?

I searched the WP plugins but didn't see anything for it. However, maybe one of these plugins will work for you? http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=ftp&sort=

CrushFTP is separate server with its own http server. It is in no way integrated with WordPress. However, it allows full controll over your clients and your assets.
