    Default Hide site to all but registered customers (wholesale site)

    Hello,

    I'm working on a new site using ocsmax 2.5 rc1 that will be for wholesale customers only.

    I've got a mod working so the prices aren't shown unless the customer is in the wholesale group (ie, default retail customers get ASK FOR PRICE)

    But what I really want is to also have the whole store hidden from all customers unless they are registered.

    I don't mind search engines not finding the products, in fact I'd prefer that really as I do't want it to conflict with retail sites. Wholesale customers will find us anyway without the products being indexed.

    So I'd have a home page, intro text, and a way to log in or register. That's more or less it, until they log in.

    Is there a simple way to do this?

    Thanks In advance
    RC2User (although not any more - can I change my name?!)

    to stop search engines indexing the site simply deny all in robots.txt

    To restrict the site to people who should know only, don't advertise it and stick it in a subfolder

    ie
    Code:
    www.yourdomain.com/mysecretwholesaleonlywebsiteforspecialcustomersthatidontadvertisetojustanybodybecauseitssospecial

    thanks, but I was hoping for some way to integrate it into the site properly so people could view the static pages and the login/register pages, without viewing the categories/products.

    Guess I'll have to write it myself.

    Thanks anyway

    This has been asked before a few times ... if you have a quick browse through oscommerce or google you will find a couple of options.

    This one is the easiet and best: osCommerce Community Add-Ons

    3 line install

    find \Includes\application_top.php

    Add this code before the last "?>" symbol

    if (strpos($PHP_SELF, "login.php") == 0 && strpos($PHP_SELF, "logoff.php") == 0 && strpos($PHP_SELF, "create_account.php") == 0 && strpos($PHP_SELF, "create_account_success.php") == 0 && strpos($PHP_SELF, "privacy.php") == 0 && strpos($PHP_SELF, "conditions.php") == 0 && strpos($PHP_SELF, "password_forgotten.php") == 0)
    {
    if (!tep_session_is_registered('customer_id')) {
    $navigation->set_snapshot();
    tep_redirect(tep_href_link(FILENAME_LOGIN, '', 'SSL'));
    }
    }
    Just change the filenames to the ones you want to let them access - job done!

    Regards,

    Great, thanks. I did do a search of both the forum and oscommerce contributions before posting but didn't find a solution.
