Hi wanting to create a password protected page for clients to view privately...

Any links on a how-to for Dreamweaver CC?

The easiest way to do that would be to create a "clientname" folder on your server, then password protect that folder through your hosting admin panel.

So reviewing sites would be done by going to www.yoursite.com/clientname. Upon arrival, they would be prompted to enter the password. once they do, they'd have access to all contents stored there with nothing to set up in DW. No scripts or database connections required.

I wouldnt do it like you have been advised, its economical rather than a bespoke approach.

If you can work with some simple php there are plenty of threads in this forum that l have provided code for that will password protect a page, without the necessity to use a scraping the barrel solution.

Still that may be acceptable to you, l dont know.

Not everyone who asks questions in DW forum are server-side scripters.  Many are fine with straight HTML, and have no need or desire to learn a server-side language.

What Jon and Nancy have proposed is easiest to implement and does not require server-side languages such as PHP, JSP, CF, or ASP.  Plus the security is on the OS, not on an application server.

V/r,

As l said the economical solution may be acceptable, depends how professional you want your website to appear to your users.

Is the page free of errors?

Did you upload it to the correct folder?
Did you refresh your browser?

Your webserver should be configured to not allow directory view.

The key thing here is to password protect a directory on the remote server.    

If you have Plesk or C-panel as part of your hosting plan, this should be a piece of cake.   The procedure is fairly standard no matter which hosting company you use.
