Ok, so I dug around into all the stuff Curtis told me about and found alot of password protected stuff for php... but so far i haven't found anything specifically for making it so only registered users can download files. So there's no password per say, you just gotta be a registered user to download stuff.

hello...

probably one of them has it - lemme look. what you need is some sort of database or flat file to store user's passwords - so they fill out a form and register, you save their info and then when they come back, they put in their login info and you match it against the saved profile...

something like this covers the basics:

Thanks Curtis,

I've been thinking about trying this concept out in wordpress. Though I'm new to wordpress I'm picking it up quickly. I'm able to to do alot of stuff automatically instead of manually in wordpress. Any thoughts on this?
