Protect a tour by user, password and timeperiod ?

Hi

How would you do a user based password protection for a tour ?
The goal is to set a tour free for a specific customer within a specific timeperiod.

Are there any Plugins to solve that ?

Kind regards
Alain

search in Google with keywords - "HTML page (or site) password protection" , "lock encrypt html page"

Is there some kind of automatisation ?

In Google I only find solutions with .htaccess to lock files/directories with user/password for a list of Users.

I'm searching for a easy to use solution where I can say User A has access to the Website for the next 24 hours. After this timeperiod he automaticly get's blocked.
How is that possible ?

Kind regards

Here is a GUI for .htaccess.

I was not percise enough of what I have in mind.

I wanna restrict some rooms of a tour.

Example:
When a user starts a tour of a real estate I want to prevent him entering the house. I wanna lock some rooms for the user. I guess this has to be solved in the *.js file(s) of the tour and cannot not be managed by the .htacess file because there is not a separate file for every node (room) and all Nodes of a tour are stored in a *.js file.

Does anybody know how to solve this task ?

Kund regards

Maybe create each ' node' on its own and link to each via GO TO URL rather than encasing the tour all-in-one? This would allow htaccess to function.

If there are likely to be a large proportion of areas that are 'locked off' then maybe produce a tour 'page' that the htaccess can work with.

Hope this makes sense?

Thanks for that idea.

Would this also work with Skins ?
Example: I have a Skin where I can popup a floorplan, when I go to the next room (linked by URL) then, I guess, the popuped floorplan would disapear, because the state of the Skin will be lost in the next room, right ?

Kind regards

Does anybody know how to create a nice, custom Loginwindow for the password protected area ?
I don't wanna use this ugly standard .htaccess loginwindow.

I've been searching on the web, but I can't find a step by step instruction for my stupid little brain :-)

Kind regards
Alain

Which loginwindow are you talking about?
It may be wholly dependant on your OS if you are using htaccess.
have you got a URL we can take a look?

This one (it's Firefox, but it looks ugly on every Browser):

login_small.jpg (100.01 KiB) Viewed 2020 times
Any idea ?

Edit:
It looks not ugly, but it doesn't fit into the Graphicdesign I have in mind ;-)

Kind regards
