Question by lapplle: How does updating the content and technical side of a Website template work?
For example, I will be editing the template in PS design wise with a view to upload it via FTP to my hosting (correct me if wrong) but am confused about the technical side.
The template itself has a ‘members only’ section and a ‘join’ section. How do I generate the passwords required for members to gain access?
Also I will be updating everyday with videos, how do I do this?
Via some sort of content management system?
Thanks so much in advance.

Content Management System is a good way to start but however the lazy way.
If you are looking at just generating passwords and not register them, you can use PHP’s rand(); function with the md5(); function to randomly generate passwords and and encrypt them. Would be best to store as a cookie too.
