    Have all the users sign in when they come to the site, whether "Free" members or not.<BR><BR>The table will contain all the info for all the users, viz. name, address, username,password, email, and additionally a column called, may be, "roles" that will contain the users access level for eg. "gold", "plat", or "free". Also a column for date when the free member first "signs in".<BR><BR>If the user comes first time, clicks on TRIAL, take them to a page where they will select the user name and password. Add their record in the table with that day&#039;s date. You can set a cookie with the user&#039;s permission so that next time he doesnt have to log in. In this case everytime when you check the cookie, make a check for the date in the table for that particular user, if it is more than 30 days, take him to "Registration page" or give a message.<BR><BR>Next time if any user tries to log in, check his "role" in the database and send him to the appropriate page.<BR><BR>Does this sound something that could get you started ? Actually its almost 2.00 in the morning and am sure there is more that we can do here but am too tired to think everything right now, but we can continue tomorrow morning (my morning, I meant:)) or someone else can add to it.<BR><BR>Good Luck.
