logging into a site

    1.) Let's say that you had a single password for a web site. Do you have a mechanism that would allow a comparison from a text field entered in a form and the password? (Obviously this field has to be file somewhere to preclude "view" ==> "source" of the HTML source.

    2.) More complicated . . . Let's say you wanted people to "register" so they could access a web site. The valid user names need to be in a file on the server. Then the form asks either to login or register. If the latter, then the file containing the user name would be updated to include a password. If the former, the file would look for a match.

    That is, I know that JavaScript and other scripts protect the client. The file for the names/passwords have to be kept on the server. Can Jotform help with this?

    Background: I'm working for a non profit women's golf club to put info they need online. I want to make personal info (like emails and phone numbers) available only to those in the club.


    Just found jotform today - - selected a "contact" template and easily got what I needed. Thanks so much!


    Note that I'm using LoCalender for our calendar. It's really great too.

    Hi Joanie,

    Thanks for your message.

    1. No, we do not have such feature. Unfortunately we do not allow any login forms here, we do not support it. We also don't have password field, it was removed due to phishing issues.

    2. It's the same thing, we do not have this feature. You may consider my colleagues workaround provided on this thread though it's not ideal when talking about security since the password is viewable on the source code. http://www.jotform.com/answers/21374-How-can-I-password-protect-a-form

    Thank you!
