SpinSite uses site registration in several different ways. Most of the features described below are available in the SpinSite Platinum Package only.
In a discussion forum, registration allows the site administrator to identify abusers of the forum, identify "who said what" and enables the notification component.
Another function of visitor registration is to allow you to assign viewing and editing rights on a page-by-page basis. For example, if you wrote a report that you only wanted to share with one person, you could save it as a pdf, upload it to your website and provide only that person with a link to the report.
To set up this feature, go to the Page Options menu and choose "select users" to set the user up with View Rights. You can also assign administrative rights to registered users.
A SpinSite website can also be converted into a Spintranet, or a secured private Internet site. Only authorized registered users are able to gain access to the site.
