Q&A: How does updating the content and technical side of a Website template work?

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.

Quick example..

    Users sign up for an account, and enter their username and password. (If the template doesn’t work that way, get a better one.)

    If you want to put new videos up every day, I suggest that you create the page that allows the user to choose a video to watch dynamically – from the names of the videos in a database. When you upload a video, add the name in the database.
