I'm new to these forums and it looks like a great place. I have been developing websites for awhile now, but have just finished setting up a site to advertise my services beyond family members and friends I primarily use Wordpress for development, and I'm mulling over the best way to create a client login area so I can show current clients their websites as they're being developed.
I will be creating websites in a sub-directory of my design site and then moving everything to the clients host afterward, so I could just send the client a link like http://mywebsite.com/clientswebsite , but what I'd really like to do is create a "client login" area on my main page and then when the client logs in with whatever username and password I specify, they will be taken to the sub-directory where their website exists.
My question to all of you who are more experienced is this: What would be the best way to accomplish this? Or more precisely, are there any suggestions on how I may accomplish this?
Any advice is greatly appreciated for steering me in the right direction.
