Recipe 1. User Login > End User Recipe: User Login

End User Recipe: User Login

In many intranet applications, the first page a user comes to is the login page. If the user is already registered, a username and password are entered. Selecting the Submit button checks the username and password against the data source and, if found, redirects the users to an application within the intranet. If the username is not found or the password is incorrect, a message appears on the page telling the user of the problem. The user can then try again, register, or ask that the password be emailed.

Our application is somewhat different from Macromedia’s standard user login. Rather than sending the user to a different page if the login fails—where he would have to select a link to try again or, worse, to just bring him back to the login page with no additional information—our login page provides a message on the same page to allow for an easier retry.
