I’m trying to password protect some WordPress pages without using a plugin. I wrote a few pages in PHP make a simple user login/registration form. Just to make sure it worked, I threw it up on the web http://mbh.fivepotato.com/test/index.php . It is made up of 6 files: index.php, login.php, registration.php, activate.php, member.php, and logout.php
Now I want to incorporate that form into a page on my WordPress site called "login". The member.php file is protected using the code:
I was hoping that I could use some conditional statements and the "session_start(); if($SESSION)" hook to protect the pages I only want available to members who register through that form. Unfortunately I haven’t had any success. Does anyone have suggestions for how I could go about this?
