group. Thanks

I want  to create a webpage that everyone can read but only those with
a password can  post.

How would be the  best way to do that?

Would putting the application to  post in a protected directory and
the application to display in a public directory work. Maybe I am
asking can you make a directory on the server public read and private
post.  Will cross see/show work?

I need to keep this very simple. I would like it be be simular to a
cookbook/recipe type of thing. It is for the club members to post
pictures and instructions on the fly patterens they tie. I want it to
be world viewable but only club members with a password can post.

The members of this fly fishing club are really not interested in
computers. They are older and a computer is a tool to use for work or
communications. If you can't squirt some oil in it to fix it they are
at a loss. Their interests lay in fishing and good wine and trophy
wives (probable  someone elses).

I am getting up in years and need to leave something easy  to
administer when I go.

If you can help  with this information it  will be appreciated.
