set up a log-in button and the client will have to type in name and
password then take you to another page with various projects to
Can anyone please help me? is this hard to do in flash? i

there should be some server side scripts or techniques
involved, to check the password. It's no use checking the password
in Flash, because then it would have to be written into the swf,
and anyone with a swf decompiler can just read it out and use it.
The easiest way should be using directories protected by a
htacess file (if it's an apache server). Here's an introduction to
Then everyone has to put in a password before s/he can access the
files in that directory. This is handled by the browser, so you
don't have to do anything in the Flash files.
You could also do a login screen in Flash, then you would
have to send the input to the server (using the LoadVars class);
the script compares the sent password with the correct one and
sends back the information if it fits or not (e.g. a boolean
value). Then again in Flash you could check the returned value and
decide what to do next. But this isn't very safe, afaik, so I would
recommend using htacess (because this also prevents direct access
to the files).
