Hints and Tips on design

Thank you bigblog! I'll try. My HTML is very rusty and I need to essentially re-learn it before doing too much damage. I have my web pages designed, and hyperlinked text that I've included on the pages does work to navigate to other pages - it's just that I can't get a specific kind of hyperlink to take me to a user login or reg page. But I'll insert the code you provided and see what happens - correct me if I'm wrong but the gist of your code is to override the blockage so I can test the user login and reg links. As the admin/web builder guy I need to be able to get those links to work and test them. Not sure why it shouldn't work because an admin guy is logged on?

I'll keep at it, and thanks again for your help. Maybe someday when I've learned this stuff I can be able to offer a little help for people here too.

casinowallstreet, how do you want to log into a website if you're already logged in? biggrin Just log out of your account or test the links using the incognito mode of your browser tongue

I might not have been clear - the website and most of its pages will be accessible to anyone who wants to visit it, except for a page that would be for members only. It would have content they'd have to pay to view, in this case Dow trade alerts (which members would also receive via other means e.g. mass email dispatch to all members).

So, as the developer I need to 'play user' and test links etc. Some or most of the free pages will have a link that would take a user to a registration page, and once registered (s)he would need only to log in to the restricted page each day for the alerts.

I may be able to exclude a reg page in the design and only have a login page for a user once that user has submitted a payment for a month of membership via the Shop module.

The web pages are essentially done (but no Shop module purchased, integrated and tested yet), they are the free pages anyone can navigate to and view. But again a user who desires to purchase access to the paid-page content would have to at a minimum log into that page(s).

The ideal would be for me to be able to automate some stuff e.g. record day of month user signed up so that reminders can be sent say 27 days later to renew or lose access. The reg page might help with that. So I just need to set up the link(s) to the reg and/or login page and test to be sure a user can get to those pages via the link(s).

Sorry bigblog, to clarify that last sentence in the paragraph,

'But again a user who desires to purchase access to the paid-page content would have to at a minimum log into that page(s).'

Should have read:

'But again a user who has paid that desires access to the paid-page content would have to at a minimum log into that page(s). '

You can test different user groups using the website's toolbar: http://take.ms/m7sWs

Login page - yoursite.com/index/1
Registration page - yoursite.com/register

These pages are only available when you are logged out, which is perfectly normal.

Unfortunately, you cannot send automatic reminders but the registration date of the users is indeed recorded.
