i was wondering how i would be able to create a form in which a user would sign up as a user of the site, and then be able to login and view their personal page.
the idea is that after they've signed up, there would be a 'login' button on the homepage. clicking this button would send them to enter their username and pass in a form. they would then be sent back to the homepage, logged in and they would be able to access their personal page.
and if its possible, how can i make certain pages only accessible when a user is logged in? and how exactly does my site know that users are already registered?
kinda alot of questions, but hopefully someone's created something like this and can help me out.
