To configure this page, first edit the form's properties to set
the name of the target sub site. Then use the Search/Replace
feature to change all instances of the text [Name of your sub
site] on this page with the title of the target sub site, such
as "New Ideas Web" or "Employee Discussion Web". Save this page
in the Root Web site. Next, change the permissions for the
target sub site using the Server command on the Tools menu. Make
the permissions unique for the target sub site, and change the
User access controls so that only registered users may enter.
You can automatically register yourself to be a user of [Name
of your sub site] by filling out and submitting this form. Only
registered users are allowed into [Name of your sub site].
Choose a username for yourself (such as your last name) and make
sure this username contains no spaces. Also create a private
password. Together these will be your "key" into [Name of your
sub site] from now on. This information will be kept in a
registration database that is accessible only to the webmaster,
not to ordinary users.
One of the main benefits of having a restricted access Web
site like [Name of your sub site] is that authorized users don't
have to keep typing their names into form fields, such as when
submitting an article to a discussion group, because the web
server already knows who they are. Similarly, other users can be
reasonably sure that you really sent the articles and postings
attributed to you, and that someone else didn't pretend to be
you when posting.
After you are successfully registered, your web browser will
ask you to type in your username and password the first time you
try to access [Name of your sub site]. The browser will remember
this information for as long as it continues to run, so you can
access any document in [Name of your sub site] without being
asked for it again.
