View Full Version : Members Zone

18 Jun 2011, 02:46 PM
I have my website, but I want a members area for paid members which will then have a few extra links in my nav which are not seen by the public.
So a user would get on my site, click members area, either sign in if they have already paid and reg'd or go through a payment process then register their own log in details.

What do I need to have/do in order for this to do what I want, I am totally new to this members stuff (This is my biggest project to date) so I would need a step by step dummies guide please.

If you're going to handle the payment service yourself, the first thing I would do is learn everything you can about the PCI standards: https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/security_standards/index.php

Then you're going to want to read up on owasp's php security guide. This may not sound like fun, but it's way better than getting hacked and someone stealing the personal info of your customers.
