Re: first enter code then access website

Hi Lordman,

With Chameleon I think you could do this quite easily by using the session variables to keep track of whether they have logged in or not. You could also use the PHP box in the rule to process the form.

rule 1: allow anyone who has logged in to continue
- detect session variable A, and if found, quit the rule chain (i.e. don't do any further checking)

rule 2: process the form
- use some PHP to check the form values. If they are found, return true so that the form succeeds. In the Succeed action, set session variable A and quit the rule chain

rule 3: allow the form page
- detect the page that the form is on. In the succeed action, quit the rule chain to allow them to view that page

rule 4: at this stage they are not logged in, not on the form page. So just redirect them to the form page.

Make sense?
