I am trying to build & put, a totally secure area for our boyscout troop web site, using the phpbb registration & login with added items. That way noone needs to login twice, and the phpbb must be as secure as the rest of the site anyway.
For registration I want to put
1. troop login with a password only known to troop members
2. the 13 year old page (not sure if it is fed law when it is a members only site, but Scouts don't like to break the law!)
3. the phpbb registration with removing the profile info & adding other items.
Then lock the forum from veiwing unless you are logged in.
#1.. I have learned I can lock the groups but not the entire forum to registered members. I looked for a mod & did not find it (in fact no mods seem to deal with changing security, or the registration). But, this seems like a not too uncommon request.. Is there this feature?
#2.. If there is the ability to lock down, what is this code so I can use it on the rest of my pages.. If not I saw a session page going on..(which is more indepth then a normal session.. If I add a session to check for valid logins will I conflict with what you have going on..? If yes where can I learn about session pages?
#3.. When in the login area can I wipe out the link to info on the members & the member groups? we like to keep our kids names secure.
#4.. I know how to get to profile & change the info in the profile area, with the language page and have done so successfully, but if I wanted to change the type of box to a drop down, or the validation checking? what page?
Yes, I know I sound very green, and I am.. But, I am a VB / SQL programmer, just new to php.. So, I can take my lumps & learn this, with a little direction as to the correct path.. Please.. Thanks
