The Reader Management System is an optional feature provided with our Gold level service.

There are three (3) levels of user in the Reader Management System: 1) Administrator; 2) Unapproved Reader; 3) Approved Reader.

A Reader may be either Activated or Not Activated.

A user with Administrator permissions can activate, approve and delete readers.

When a Reader visits your site, they will see one of the three following messages in the Search Box on the right hand side of your site:

1) If not logged in or not registered, a prompt will be shown for the Reader to either Login or Register;
