    Can I create a log in form to limit the access to my web page?

    Asked by Sarah weston on October 11, 2013 at 10:18 AM

    Hi

     

    I just tried to create a 'password' button, but when I preview it it doesn't do anything? Is this becasue the code needs to be in active source code?

     

    Thanks, this is the first time I've tried this, so I'm sure im doing something wrong

    Hi Sarah, the reason why it does not do anything because you only have a password textbox and nothing at all or no submit button.

    Please be advised that any use of password textboxes or any fields that is intended to get password info will breach our Terms and Conditions. Please do not continue doing such forms to prevent any suspension of your account. Thank you!

    Thanks for your comprehension Sarah.

    As my colleague sa¡d, login forms are not allowed in Jotform as such practice is against our terms and condition of use, your form and account will be suspended if a login form is found in your account So, we reccomend you not to create forms that request password. I will be looking for a different solution that can help you to accomplish what you need and if I'm able to find something, will notify you.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Is a form with condition(s) ok to use? For example, a text box named 'code' with condition 'if contains xyz' then 'show submit button'. The submit button then re-directs to a URL on the website.

    Hi,

    This wasn't a new question, it was a suggestion to Sarah's original question.

    @Dawn

    We apologize for any misunderstanding. We appreciate your willingness to help, your suggestion seems very useful, however, that would be a bit risky as the central objective of the condition is not to request login information, it could be that the condition fails at some point.

    If you need assistance while creating one of your form kindly open a new thread to let us know your concern.

    Thanks for your help.
