    I have a membership site that I bought several months ago, it's doing pretty well but many paid users complain that they are unable to login. I don't know jack shit about how logins even work, but it's set up so that there is only one username and password for everyone. That's how it was when I bought the site. Back then, you were taken to the right to member's area home page after logging in with no problems, but the whole member's area was visible in search engines and you could click on the links returned in google and view the member's area. I had someone make it so that the member's area was password protected, but in doing this, after entering the login info and hitting the login button, a box pops up asking the user to enter their username and password again. After entering your login info again, you are taken to the member's area homepage. However, I suspect many people aren't seeing this second login box popping up due to pop up blockers or something like that.

    Either way, I would like to revamp my login system so that users can create their own usernames and passwords, and so that everyone can log in without having issues of having to enter login info multiple times. I don't know anything beyond very basic HTML, so I cannot really do this on my own. Just wondering if there is a tutorial on how do set one up somehow, a site that helps you create one, or something along those lines. Free is best, I guess I might pay a reasonable one time fee, but I won't do a monthly charge for this, no way. I searched for answers in google but kept getting membership site management management services for crazy prices. Anyways, thanks for any help.

    This is what I see when looking through the HTML for my login box:

    Code:
    <div id="right1" style="height: 284px">
    <!--mid2 start -->
    <div id="mid2" style="height: 206px">
    <h2>Members<span>Login</span></h2>
    <form name="form1" method="post" action="checklogin.php">
    <td>
    <table border="0" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="1" style="width: 85%" >
    <tr>
    <td colspan="3"> </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td width="78" class="style3">Username</td>
    <td width="6">:</span></td>
    <td width="294">
    <input name="myusername" type="text" id="myusername" style="width: 104px"></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td class="style3">Password</td>
    <td>:</span></td>
    <td><input name="mypassword" type="text" id="mypassword" style="width: 104px"></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td> </td>
    <td> </td>
    <td><input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Login"></td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    
    At the top it says "checklogin.php" so I assume it's php? Like I said, don't know much about this.
