    Do any of you know a login system which I can add to my site. So I can have a member's area. It will be great if it could be embedded on to my site's template.

    I've used the one taught in this book. It works great and the code examples can be copied from the author's website.

    You need two files in the folder that you want to password protect:

    1. .htaccess
    2. .htpasswd

    Here is an example with the user name being Joe Blow, the password johnnybegood, and the server url /website/main/images.

    .htaccess needs to contain:

    AuthType Basic
    AuthName "Password"
    AuthUserFile /website/main/images
    require user Joe Blow

    .htpasswd needs to have:

    Joe Blow:aRYYaJJnmPduA

    that last bit of scrambled letter is your encrypted password: there are lots of sites that will encrypt passwords for you, here is one I googled http://www.kxs.net/support/htaccess_pw.html

    Learn PHP and MySQL, and write it yourself.

    I doubt that anybody has already written a "members only post it note" web application.

    You can take a look at so many different implementations in various open source software applications.

    Just look at Textpattern, dAlbum. Wordpress, Simplog, to name a few.

    Or, if you are willing to wait for couple of weeks I will share my implementation once done. PM me what exactly you need.

    the great benefit of that is it'll be immune from all the auto-hacking scripts out there. iow, someone would have to try to hack into that site specifically.

    joomla w/ CommunityBuilder could handle it. i wouldn't be surprised if other CMS's could, too.

    I'm gonna have to say do one of either 2 things. 1. Learn php and sql, do it yourself. 2. Choose a prebuilt solution and edit the code to your needs. (secret option 3. Pay me and I'll do it for you :p)

    good luck.
