    Hi, I wanted to create a custom area underneath amember login page so that I can group specific products together. To do this I created a new signup page that will show products of a certain group.
    I then created a button and assigned it the custom URL (ie signup/index/c/XYZabc

    If a user knows the URL they can browse straight to it; how do I prevent this and force people to login through the normal amember login page? Is there a better overall solution to this?

    If is a page outside aMember protect it by aMember. Then anybody trying to navigate to it direct is redirected to aMember log-in page

    This is not an external page. It is a page created by amember when you add a new signup page from the admin area, as per the description in the first posting. Sorry that wasn't clear.

    The idea is to "hide" custom signup pages by assigning them a random URL. The odds that a user would stumble onto this page are pretty low.

    Depending on why you want to protect the signup form, you might also find it useful to edit the availability of the products involved - under '
    To order this product user must have an
    '. I sometimes create a dummy, disabled product just to allow access to other products.
