I was trying to do both, not have a client page where all were listed but instead just show a login and then redirect. This is just for a single page for each client. The rest of the site, all other pages, are wide open. That way one client wouldn't see the list of all other clients.

That is what I was thinking I could do, but I guess you saying the password is not exposed for use in a conditional without modification?

This is low security situation.  It is just something to make the client feel special and give a small sense of privacy. We just put proofs and samples on these pages, nothing sensitive.

Thanks again.
