This is a sample of the login screen for the members area.

Every eCMS site should already have a members area whether you are using it or not. To access the members area go to http://your_site_name/member. New users will have to register before they have access to the members area. You can choose to automatically approve members or require all members to be confirmed by going to Options >> Member Options >> Would you like to require approval before a customer can become a member? Yes No
