    I would like to have a section in my web site that can only be accessed by those approved.

    Asked by forlora2003 on August 29, 2010 at 08:28 AM

    We would like a wholesale section on our site that can only be accessed by those we have  approved.  Once they have entered the site we want them to create their own unique passcode.  What is the best way to accomplish this? Thank you

    Yes, you can use Conditions to password protect your form. I created one to write the tutorial below for you. You can test it here:
    Password: test

    Here is how you can accomplish this:

    1. Add a password question to the beginning of your form. The password box is under "Power Tools".

    2. Click on Thank You button on the toolbar and set a Thank You Message that says "You have entered an incorrect password, please go back".

    3. Click on Conditions button on the toolbar and add this "Change Thank You URL after submission" condition:

    Redirect to http://www.interlogy.com.When "Enter password" Equals To "test"

    It is actually quite simple. Until the user enters the correct password she is redirected to correct section on your site, otherwise seeing the default error message.
