I personally hate it when i browse a file server where a huge list of folders are displayed which are all restricted to users. ;D

So, wouldnt it be nice to have %protected% - [protected] where you can put up an image (Like a Lock or something) that will only show up when login is required for that particular file and / or folder.

HFS cannot know when the login dialog will pop up on the browser, because the browser decide itself how to store and use passwords.

anyway, HFS can know whan items are protected. i can insert the %protected% there. is it ok?

Would it be able to do this: (If yes, :D then thats exactly what i wanted)

Lets say the folders Media and Template are restricted to users only.

and that [protected] contains something like this:
<img src="lock.jpg" alt="" />&nbsp;

Then the output would be:

I think that is something that should even get implemented into the default template.

Then the output would be:

that's exactly what i already got in your previous explanation.
what i told you is that when you click on those folders, the browser may remember the password, and access the folder using the password: no login dialog.
is it clearer now?
is it a problem?

Yes, its clearer =D

Another thing,

Wouldn't it be possible that, when you are logged in, some of the 'locks' go away. Cause hfs can show (in the account menu) which folders are accessable by a certain user; couldnt this information be used to show and hide certain locks when a user logs in?

Or do i get it wrong again?

A work around for now is folder Comment with
Code: [Select]
<img align=top src="/~img12" alt="Private"> Log In Requiredfor all protected folders.
If %protected% is implemented, I hope it will be selectable, so it can be
turned off.
I probably don't understand this well, but what about a case where there
are several folders protected, but each user only has access to part of them ?

you don't have to care on how it is stored in your hard disk.
you only have to care on the path in your virtual file system.
