Hide region when user logged in

Hi, I have a username and passwod box that I want to hide from view once the user is logged in. They are on every page so it is easy for the user to log in from any page on my site.

Once they are logged in, how do I hide the boxes and the associated form once the user is logged in, but once they log out, or close the browser window, I need the boxes to display again forcing the user to sign in again. Is this something that the Cookies Toolkit can handle?

I have run the DW log in user behaviour which works fine, I just don't know how to show or hide the boxes based on log in status.

Any advice will be appreciated.

Thanks.

Mat

Assuming you have security assist and that you used this to create the login rules then go to Modify and then Security Assist then access page manager. Choose the pages (or folders) that you want to apply the rule to and then from "Grant access if" choose "show if NOT logged in".

I have the full suite of Webassist software, but this site was built before I bought the software.

I ran dreamweaver's log in user server behaviour in order to password protect the pages that needed it, so is there anyway to adapt that dreamweaver software, or would I be better off removing it and applying security assist's behaviour instead?

Think I'd be inclined to delete DW's behaviour and apply WA's to the site. May be a bit of work but in the end it will make life easier for you.

I'd do a complete backup of the site as it is before carrying out any work. Then you can at least revert back if it goes pear shaped.

Perhaps someone else knows of an easier way but that's what I'd do.
