Hello, I am interested in aMember integration with Joomla! I have read all the posts on this and understand in a roundabout sort of way how this works although I still need an answer to some fundamental questions. I would appreciate anyones help who has gone down this route or from Alex, who wrote the Joomla! plugin for aMember. 1. Say I have a new webhost account with nothing uploaded yet. Do I install aMember first or Joomla!, does the order matter? 2. Joomla! does NOT seems to protect any folders/content from direct access as aMember does. Instead it provides anti-leeching security to HIDE the url to your protected content but doesn't actually protect it if someone knows the path. Is this true, I think so but need clarification. 3. If (2.) is correct then if you choose to protect some folders under the Joomla! default installation directory (through aMember) then does this cause any problems uploading any new content into Joomla! via the control panel etc? i.e. write-access errors! 4. Do I have to disable the registration in Joomla! CP and let ALL registrations take place on the aMember side, if so how do you get the aMember login box to appear on your Joomla! pages? The location of the Joomla! login box is controlled in the CP and you can switch it on/off through the CP. 5. What if a user wants to alter account details, do they goto aMember or Joomla! section, as both have forms to update name, address, password etc. If it is via aMember then do you have to switch off the user menu in Joomla!, is this the usual approach. 6. So, if I have a video tutorial say that I only want registered users to access I would set up a protected folder in aMember and then store my video tutorial there, yes? And then I could publish an article on my Joomla! site that only registered users could access that embedded this video. If someone tries to access the page they should get directed to the not logged in page if they are a guest. If the see the HTML code then they may try to access the video folder DIRECTLY but aMember will have protected this so they can't!! Is this correct? Any other comments would be REALLY appreciated, thanks.
