The login process

After the form is submitted the TYPO3 CMS authentication services will validate the login credentials. After this process felogin will handle the rest. This means that the felogin plugin must be visible for the user who has logged in.

Felogin will then check any redirect options and generate the appropriate content.


  • Do not use the login status of a frontend user as authorization, but always rely on user groups.

  • Only use different storage folders for frontend users if this is really necessary due to organizational reasons.
