htaccess password login page

Hi there

Is it possible to have a login page for a htaccess password protected directory?

Rather than the pop-up box appearing, I would rather a page with a form that asks for the username and password an then directs the user when clicking "log in" to the password protected area - without the pop-up box appearing.

Your help would be much appreciated.

From what I know, you can only have the popup with htaccess, but don't quote me on that. I don't know much about it

Take a look at this:

As said in that thread, note that it is a very insecure method. From what it looks like, there is no secure method for doing it through a page.
