I am setting up a basic members area on a site and need to password protect either the entire site and/or have the option of excluding select pages from password protection. The issue is integrating this with my existing Aweber account. The ideal scenario would be as follows:
1. Upon entering name, email and password into an Aweber form, visitor is redirected to a thank you page stating their login details are being sent via email.
2. Aweber sends the standard opt-in confirmation form
3. First autoresponse email from Aweber reflects their email address and password as their username and password for access to a link provided in the same email to the members only area
4. When arriving at the designated members only url, the username and password from the Aweber signup is entered at a prompt and the visitor is granted access.
I can handle 1-3 above, what I am missing is the ability to automate out the collection of the Aweber data and merge it with the password protection script on the site/pages.
As long as it is not too complex, I can install the scripts as well as setup the mysql database on my server, and design the required front end pages.
I am undecided as to whether the site will be standard .html or if I am going to use a CMS like Joomla -- either way, I would want this to be flexibile enough to work in both circumstances.
