content, management of the database information and management of the users,
customers and their orders.
Browsing the pages of this site is controlled and is
possible only upon identification and authentication of the administrators.
This site may be operate by SSL link (recommended). All pages have static and
dynamic parts. The static part contains a header with information on the
authenticated administrator, logout button and left aligned main menu for fast
access to the administrative functions.
All users of the administrative site are called
administrators. They may have different functions: product managers
administrate products data, price-lists, etc.; customers administrators are
responsible for customers registration and customers level of access; orders
managers process all orders placed.
