My dear TYPO3 reader, as my blog ritual, it’s time to appreciate the TYPO3 community people and developers who contributed their time and efforts to make good and secure TYPO3 login extensions. Thanks to everyone, #T3Kudos!
Without wasting your time, Let’s get started to implement TYPO3 login features and available TYPO3 extensions.
You can integrate the frontend TYPO3 login feature in two ways with either TYPO3 core login extension or other available TYPO3 frontend login extensions from TER.
EXT.felogin (by TYPO3 Core Team)
By default, TYPO3 core provides frontend user management and frontend login extension. Here are the steps by step guide.
Step 1. Create System Storage Folder
Login to your TYPO3 backend and Create a “Frontend Users” storage folder.
Step 2. Add Frontend Usergroup
Click on “+” create a new record icon, and choose System Records >Website Usergroup.
Step 3. Add Frontend Users
Click on “+” create a new record icon, and choose System Records > Website User
Step 4. Fillup Frontend User Form
Enter username, password, choose frontend usergroup, and enter other personal details.
Step 5. Activate TYPO3 Core’s EXT.felogin
Go to Admin Tools > Extensions > Activate “felogin”
Step 6. Insert TYPO3 Login Form
Create a Frontend Login page, and add “Login Form” from Form Elements. Please make sure to assign “Storage Folder”.
Step 7. Hurray! Launched TYPO3 Frontend Login
This extension provides an authentication option for website users. It’s an alternative version for managing any frontend login attempts. There are powerful features like Authentication via a magic link, Lockout user. Simultaneously, brute force, Attempt to create a temporary frontend account in a BE, Out of the box notifications for necessary actions ( password reset, password update, login, lockout, magic link usage), etc.
EXT.loginviaemail (by Clemens Gogolin)
With the "Frontend user login" extension in the core, you can only log in with the user name. The e-mail address that the user has entered in the personal data cannot be used. This extension extends the authorization mechanism: If an email address is entered as the username, the corresponding user is identified. If the user name can be uniquely assigned to the e-mail address, will the user name be passed to the authorization mechanism, and the login is carried out with it.
Of course, while implementing the TYPO3 login feature, you will need an automatic TYPO3 user registration feature. Here is the list of popular TYPO3 registration extensions.
EXT.sr_feuser_register (by Stanislas Rolland)
One of the oldest TYPO3 registration extensions which the founder of TYPO3, Kasper Skårhøj, inspires. A self-registration variant of Kasper Skårhøj's Front End User Admin extension.
EXT.femanager (by In2Code)
One of the popular TYPO3 extensions, EXT.femanager, helps you integrate registration and front-end user management. Femanager is an extension for a TYPO3 Frontend-User Registration. Maybe you know sr_feuser_register, but you want to use a more modern extension, give femanager a try. This extension brings an easy-to-use frontend-user registration with a profile manager to your system. Besides, the femanager was developed to be very flexible and get many features out of the box.
EXT.sf_register (by Sebastian Fischer)
You may probably want to use 3rd party SSO services to log in to your TYPO3 users on the frontend website. Here is the list of all available such TYPO3 login extensions.
