Hello, I have been a customer for many years using version 3. My websites have been php based and I've been using php_include checking in all php files to see if persons have access to my php pages (which works fine in version 3) In version 4, is I want to do the same sort of thing, but want to know if it is faster/better (and if so, by much) to use a different method such as 'new-rewrite' to protect the php files with my content rather than doing a check in the php files using: /amember/library/Am/Lite.php etc.? eg. what are the pros and cons of these different methods? Many thanks if anyone can shed light on this!
