Login Proceduregreenspun.com : LUSENET : TNS Website : One Thread
Login is essentially the same as registration, but the term registration also refers to the initial process of adding a client record to the database. In the case of a members-only group, the option to login as a new client is not available on the public or member pages, but available among the Admin pages operated by staff who enable login by creating a new client record. Creating a new record triggers an event of sending the password by email in a notification message to the new member.
For general login, the email address is used as the primary key, and a password is used for the basic level of authentication. An auto-login option should be available. Upon login , the client should see a second navbar with links to the protected (registered client only) areas.
