Brightspot CMS User Guide

Front-end user administration

Many sites expose certain content or features to front-end users—visitors who have an account with the site. For example, some news sites provide articles to visitors, but allow only users to submit comments. Online stores may allow visitors to make purchases, but send special offers only to users.

Brightspot includes many of the traditional features associated with user accounts: authentication, registration, verification, login/logout, password reset, and blocking.

Brightspot employs the term users in two contexts:
  • Back-end users—Editors who generate content, administrators who maintain site configurations, and developers who enhance and customize Brightspot.
  • Front-end users—Visitors who open accounts on your site, typically to gain access to exclusive content or features.
This section pertains to front-end users.
