Extend this plugin

I have had a request from a client asking me if its possible to show a specific page on the website only after users have input their company name, serial no and password – they will then get access to the page. The company and serial number would be checked against a database sitting outwith the WP database. A log would also be created that logs the login request. Is this even possible?

Any help would be much appreciated

    Hi @pjohnstone

    It you can imagine it, it can be done :slight_smile:

    WordPress already has a built-in password protect feature for individual pages. Custom fields can be used for the company name and the serial number.

    From there, it shouldn’t be too difficult for a developer to code the functions/queries required to validate the company name and serial number against existing data in an external database.

    However, that kind of custom coding goes beyond the scope of the support that we provide here. But we do indeed try to help whenever we can and if we know the answer will respond regardless.

    Alternatively, you could see if there’s a developer available at wpmu jobs who could get onto it right this minute. Or you could approach someone like Tweaky.

    Hope this helps! And thanks for being a member :slight_smile:
