View Full Version : registration required to download cad files

01-18-2006, 02:34 PM
I have a client who wants visitors, to his site, to be able to download CAD files. But they have to register first. I am looking for suggestions on how to accomplish this in site design and development.

I think this involves some sort of database which accepts emails, names. Then it sends an email to that address with password to be able to download CAD files.

Am I making it too complicated? Is there a simpler way?

That sounds like the most straighforward way to me.

Or rather, I can't think of a simpler way... :)

I found a couple php scripts at hotscripts.com that you may want to look into. I am not familiar with these and simply found them by searching for "user downloads" on the site.
Professional Download Assistant (http://www.hotscripts.com/Detailed/27019.html)
Download Trakker (http://www.hotscripts.com/Detailed/35052.html)

If you would like to see the results page of the search that had some other options you can view it HERE (http://www.hotscripts.com/search/8150239.html)

Thank you for all your help. I recently found out my client is not sure what he really wants!! How often does that happen!!!!

Thanks again.
