Passwaord Protect WebsiteAutor: Martin R.
I have a question regarding password login for my website.
Currently I am running off two URL’s my advertised url, which is basically a landing site where people can register for access, and the main operational site which they receive a link to.
Not ideal, but started this way before login was available, and now it’s time to create a login.
I don’t really want to have users register with their own emails and passwords and all the mucking around with that.
I’d love just to have a universal login on the home page which then allows access to the rest of the site.
I have spent a bit of time reading through various pages and got a bit confused so I pose some questions here.
Can I set one login and password and pass that on to all my customers to use?
Does the login have to be an email address?
If so, does the email address have to be valid or can I randomly choose an easy one?
Once logged in, it is controllable how long their browser stays logged in, or do they have to re login every time?
Any other advice? Happy to hear why this is the wrong way to do it and reasons why.
Just want a simple login so the general public can’t access the pages and my customers will feel that the site is a bit more private.
