1. You want to allow store customers to login.
A manual login is not necessary, during the normal course of the purchase process the customer will be automatically asked to login and/or create an account. If the store requires a login the shopper will be asked to login before continuing. In addition, the default store template has a text link that says, “Login” positioned along with the other store links. The “Login” text is a link to the login page, ie check_out.asp where the customer can create a new account or login to an existing account.
If a new visitor selects the “Login” or “My Account” button/link in the menu bar they will be taken to the login page where they can either login or create a new account.
If a pre-login is needed there are a few methods that can be used:
Add a small login box to the store template using the Login Box object in the template builder
Add the %OBJ_LOGIN_OBJ% variable in the template header/footer
Use the Login link that is already included in the template
