Create Websites with CHEETAH

Special websites and techniques (5)

All that remains is to equip the buttons with the appropriate redirection and to check the functionality.

LogIn – Button (Header Area)

Here you select the link function in the button's header menu and "Member areas" as the target in the settings dialog that then appears:

Since this is a "LogIn", "LogIn" must of course also be selected as the link action. In addition, anyone who has registered may log in. If he is successful, he will immediately get to the "Member Area Home Page" and can take advantage of the information, downloads, etc. offered there.


The "Register" button is assigned the action "Register" analogously:

The registration form that is displayed here is the standard form as it is natively provided by "Cheetah". You can, of course, customize this form within limits, for example by adding more input fields. We will come back to this as soon as we take a closer look at the category "Member areas" in the website settings.

All that remains is the "Member Area Home Page". There you will find the "Logout" button. And there is also the corresponding function for this in the "Configure redirects" dialog for the member area. All you have to do is select the web page from the drop-down box that is to be displayed after logging out.

Now you can test the functionality of the new member area by registering with your e-mail address and a password of your choice. You should then be able to log in without any problems. Simply enter the relevant data in the LogIn form:

The only question that remains to be answered is where you, as a website operator, can view and possibly administer the members of your member areas. And this question is easy to answer - in the left side menu of the website view. There you will find the category "Member areas" with the sub-items "Members", "Member area registration form" and "E-Mail templates", as soon as your website contains a member area.

In the "Member list" you can see who has registered for which member areas. By default, the login name, the corresponding e-mail address and the name(s) of the member area(s) in which the entry/registration was made are listed. At this point you can also block (delete) memberships.
