I'm looking for a program (php, I suspect) that I can install on my Linux web server which will allow a user to log in with a username and password I provide them.
When they log into the page, they will see a list of .txt files in a directory. I would like the user to be able to select the .txt file and mark it as read, thus preventing it from showing up in the future (even though it remains in the directory).
In otherwords, I want the to give the user a way to hide files from themselves, but not actually delete or edit the file.
I just am not sure how to do this, how one keeps track of the files viewed and now marked as "done".
I need well commented code that provides me a place to enter a username, password, and the path to the directory where the files are kept. The ability to install and run the program MUST be simple and easy or it is no use to me (e.g., I need easy step-by-step instructions).
Looking forward to seeing solutions - since I've been burned before with folks saying they can do a job, and then can't, I'm much more inclined to accept a bid when there is a demo or link to a webpage that proves the coders ability to complete the task.
