Default Creating a Login Page

Hi,

I am wondering how I might go about implementing a 'login' page. There is a page that does have this functionality "customer/error_message.php?login_incorrect", but I was thinking that a designated login page might be more suitable.

All I need to know if what needs to be included in a new .php page to make the login functional, chiefly to keep it consistent with other pages within the website.

thanks

All you have to do is duplicate the tpl page and create a menu item to call it.

But, I wouldnt recommend this, just so you think about it, cause currently the site already has a login on every single page created, that eases user navigation and gives the user posibility to login whenever they want to. If you create an additional seperate page they have to click on something else that might not be so visible (extra menu item), and users are lazy most of the time, they just want you to give them the easiest way to navigate your site (which is done currently).

And how do I make a link to it? TPL files can only be used as include right?

Or just simply copy the <form> to </form> in the view source of your page and copy this into a static page in the admin.

Best solution yet. I am kinda embarrased I didn't think of it myself since I used the same procedure to add products on static pages.

Thanks,
