Enabling Visitors to Create User Accounts

The first step in allowing users to access password-protected areas of your site is to develop a process that allows each user to create an account. The most common way to do this with UltraDev is to create a signup page including a form that allows each user to enter the necessary information and choose a username and password. When the form is submitted, the contents are placed into a database where they can be referenced for validation when the visitor returns and attempts to log in again.

The site must also include several additional elements that help returning visitors access their accounts and the secured sections of the site. First, the site needs links that allow the user to log in and log out. Ideally, the site should be able to detect whether an individual has logged in or not and should then only display the Login link to visitors who haven’t yet signed in. Likewise, authenticated users should only see the Logout link.
