The login page

Whenever a siteaccess that uses the built-in administration design is accessed for the first time, the login page will be displayed. This page provides a security mechanism that prevents unauthorized users from accessing the system. In order to get past the login page, the visitor must provide a valid username and password.

The following screenshot shows the login page.

The login window

(1) - Username field

This is where the user must enter a valid user name. The default user name for the "Administrator User" is "admin".

(2) - Password field

This is where the user must enter a valid password. The default password for the "Administrator User" is "publish".

(3) - Log in check-box

  • Tick this check-box to access the Administration Interface
  • If you do not tick, access the Web admin interface, and get the Web admin interface toolbar integrated with the web page you wish to edit. The web admin interface toolbar looks like this:

(4) - Log in button

Once a valid user name/password combination has been entered, the user may attempt to log in by pressing this button.

(5) - Register button

This button gives access to a mechanism that allows new users to register themselves on the system. Please refer to the "User registration" section for more information about this feature.
