Logging in is the preliminary action for performing any management or editing tasks.
Smallsite Design requires a user ID and password to log in, while also incorporating an optional simple 2-factor method. The user ID is short and selected by the user, and expected to use their initials. This is realistic considering the few users most sites would have. Smallsite Design uses a novel approach to passwords in that it also requires a short prompt text as a reminder of what the password is. This is because passwords cannot be short, so are not likely to be easily remembered.
