I think you're confused with an actual access panel type system that logs people into a site. That is not what access manager does. What it does is allow people to "access" a page/file/directory and nothing more. The login system is actually part of the browser setup not the access manager. Access manager cannot control how the window is used, it can only create a situation that makes the window "be" used, but the window that allows for ID and PW is not part of the access manager system at all.
To do what you're wanting to do takes PHP and databases which isn't part of the Website Access Manager program. Hopefully that makes sense. Basically the difference is that WAM allows "access" to a location, and a PHP login system allows saved variables to be used such as login information, account information, password changing etc. There's no way to get that access through WAM at all. At least not at this time, and I'm doubting anytime in the near future if at all. It's not meant as a login system, it's meant as an access system. Hope that helps Jo Ann

I really like this programme but when someone forgets or looses their password or username there is no 'click here' to send this info back to them. I know it has a remember me tick box, but stuff can still go wrong and they loose their info or they are trying to log on via another PC!
At the moment if they forget either, they have to come back to me to ask me to email them it all over again. This is now becoming a complete 'pain in the bum'. Has or more importantly is anyone at Coffee Cup thinking about a way to add this ability to Website Access Manager?
I think it would be a really useful addition and its last update was serveral years ago now ...
How about a log file to see who logged in with time and date stamps
That is something your hosting provider already does for you. This data typically is in your access_log. Since Access Manager is a server based technology, the web server logs will always have that data. ~_~_~_~_~_~_~_~_~_~_~_~_~_~_~_~

My suggestion would be to set the expiration date field background color according to some time-sensitive schedule. Such a schedule might be something like this:
1. The scheduled expiration date is X days or more in the future: background-color: green
2. The scheduled expiration date is less than X days in the future: background-color: yellow
3. The scheduled expiration date has expired: background-color: red
The actual test date value (X) would be a user-specified WAM variable representing the number of days/weeks.
This would make it much easier to understand at a glance just who might be needing attention.
Keep up the good work, everyone!
