and web browsers. However, if there are FrontPage extension
work very well.
In version 4.8, HTML Password Lock added a new option,
"Generate a standalone login file for each locked HTML
file" in Step 3, Advanced
Options dialog. Using this option, these webpages
can be password protected with HTML Password Lock.
does this option work?
1. Launch the software, in Step 1, select
your HTML file(s), in Step 2, define usernames
2. In Step 3, click Advanced Options
button, in the Advanced Options dialog, choose
the option Generate a standalone login file for each
locked HTML file.
3. Navigate to last step, click on the Lock button.
4. Now, your HTML file will be locked. Suppose your HTML
file is member.html, the software
will generate three files:
: This is a stand-alone login page. You can open this
file to access the login box and test the password protection.
: This is the HTML file with real content. The visitor
will be redirected to this page after logging in at the
page member.html. But if a visitor
attempts to visits this page without logging in - by typing
the URL address or bookmarking the URL address - he will
be redirected to the page member.html
for logging in.
The ****** is a random number added to the filename. It will change each time you lock the page.
You need to upload both the member.html
pages to the SAME folder on your web server.
: This is the backup copy of your original file. Do not upload this file to your web server. However,
please do not delete it. You might need it later.
