Login/protection questions

Q: Can I protect multiple web pages with only one account?
A: Yes you can protect multiple pages if they're linked to the main member's 'entrance' page. You can also specify personal login URL to each member.

Q: How can I setup different login URLs for different members?
A: You can go to 'Members' section of your account manager and there you can set different URLs for different members.

Q: How can I protect my member's pages from being bookmarked and accessed without login first?
A: In order to protect a page from being accessed without login you should insert JavaScript 'page protection' code. You should insert this code in all pages you want to protect. You can find this code in your account manager ('Member's page protection code' link)

Q: I'm using page protection code on my member's page and I'm receiving complaints from my members that they can't login using their login and password.
A: In order to login to member's area protected with page protection code cookies must be enabled in the browser. Also there may be an issue with very strict privacy settings in IE 6.0 resulting in not accepted third-party cookies. To solve it, enable IP authorization in your page protection settings.

Q: I've added page protection code but it's still possible to bookmark the password protected page. Did I forget anything?
A: Yes it can be bookmarked but this bookmark will not work in next browser session without login.

Q: I've added page protection code but I can still access the pages without being asked for login and password.
A: If you have logged in you can access protected page until you restart your browser or, if you have enabled IP authorization in your page protection settings, until your session expires. To close your session immediately you need to leave members area using 'Logout' link.

Q: Can you explain how the "Also allow logins from account" feature works?
A: This can be used if you want members of one account (A) to access members area protected with protection code from another account (B). In this case in account B settings check "Also allow logins from account A"

Q: When I try to enter my member's username and password I get the following error message: "404 Not Found."
A: Make sure you have properly setup your member's area URL on the 'Settings' and/or 'Members' pages. It must be in form:
'http://your-server.com/members/area.html'.
Please note that it must start with 'http://' prefix.

Q: When I logged in to my members area, it displayed authpro URL in browser address bar, I thought it would show my website address.
A: If you want to display URL of your website in address bar, set 'Hide URL' option to 'no hide' in your login settings.

Member registration questions

Q: When members sign up to a membership in my account what will be the address of the page they will go to?
A: Default successful and failed login URLs will be assigned to them, which are defined in your account manager on the 'Settings' page. On the 'Members' page of your account manager you can set custom URLs for each member.

Q: Can I use your service without the registration and cancellation features?
A: Yes you can disable both registration and cancellation pages and manage your members manually using your account manager.

Q: Can I collect money from my members using your service?
A: We can't collect payments for you but you may use other third-party processing services such as PayPal, 2checkout with our service. Please visit our 'Setup tips' page for more information.

Q: Is my registration form encrypted? Can I use it to receive credit card numbers?
A: No, authpro registration page is not encrypted.

Q: How can I send registration form results to multiple email addresses?
A: You can separate multiple emails by commas like "email1@email.com, email2@email.com"

Q: How can I add extra fields to the registration form?
A: You can go to your account manager, 'Design' page, and edit registration form textbox with html code. Or, if you have deluxe account, you can copy html form template ('Account' page, registration form [HTML] link) and edit it to add new fields and then insert it to your website.

Q: What is the difference between "New member" and "Verified member"?
A: When new members added to database they are got 'not verified' status which means they take default settings for 'new members'. You can keep them 'not verified' or change to 'verified', and they will take default settings for 'verified members'. You can change them to 'verified' from your account manager or link on your new member notification email ("admin approve", see setup tips, p.4) or you can email verification link to them then they register (this can be used to verify that they have entered valid email address, see setup tips, p.3). You can configure default settings for new and verified members on 'Settings' page of your account manager.

Q: Is there any way to import a large number of user names and passwords?
A: Yes, now we support importing member's databases for deluxe account. Go to your account manager, member's editor and click on 'Import' link for more information.

Deluxe account questions

Q: I have deluxe account. How can I put the login, registration and other form on my site?
A: When you login to your account manager you'll find [HTML] popup links next to your login, registration and other URLs. Click on these links to get HTML code which you can copy/paste to your website.

Q: I want to place login form on my website. How can I make these fields smaller?
A: To make a field smaller in width you can add "size=8" option (for example) to the <INPUT> tag. To change the height of a field you can modify stylesheet definition for input tag, for example:
<style>
input {font-size:10px;}
</style>
or just add style="font-size:10px" to the <INPUT> tag(s) you want to make smaller.

Q: I purchased the deluxe version, but I have the "This page is hosted by AuthPro. Get your own for free!" message at the bottom of my registration and login pages. How do I remove these?
A: You can edit/remove footer message on 'Design' page of your account manager (common settings table).

A: You have to use full URL address in your <img src> tags.

A: To cancel your deluxe account you should login to your account manager, click on deluxe [update] link and then on 'Cancel deluxe account' button.

Q: Is there any way I can email or send a message to all subscribed members?
A: At this time you can only export all email addresses and send them email using any mailing program.

Q: How can I get list of my members emails separated by comma's only?
