Secure user login/register system, User account verification, Custom SQLi database
Understandably the majority of clients wish to see their website ‘online’ before actually going live with their new website. While clients will always be provided with a comprehensive overview of designs and screengrabs from the website built on localhosts, this doesn’t quite compare to viewing the site on a live server.
Therefore, I decided to build a ‘Client Demo’ website, which will allow any non-WordPress website to be simply uploaded to the live server behind a secure user login system.
The first task in achieving the Client Demo site was to put together a design for the user login system and a list of functions that the website must be able to perform to be consistent in all use cases.
The final task would involve setting up redirects, session data and cookies to ensure only users that have securely logged in can view the content. Once this was working correctly, it was merely a case of making all of the content and paths dynamic as every website is different it’s essential to create a flexible product that can adapt to any website setup.
