    I have two links on a page. When Link 1 is clicked, I want the visitor to be prompted to enter a password, then be redirected to a page where the visitor can see several PDF files to open, or download, the ones they choose. For Link 2, I'd like to require a different password, if that's possible.

    Thanks!

    If the server is hosted using Apache then look at .htaccess files and setting up passwords with it. If it's Windows based server there's ways there as well.

    Or if your host provides cPanel, you can do it in there under "Password Protect Directories". Other user control panel systems may also have this feature.
