differences between logged in and not logged in?
Hello, one of the differences between logged in and not logged in is the login option vs the logout option on the navigation bar. So does that mean there are some templates for people that are logged in and some of the similar templates for people who aren't logged in? Because I intend to replace the original navigation links with graphical links instead... what files are for logged in and out? Or doesn't work quite this way?

If you have a look at the template for the navigation bar you should see some 'if' tags

<%if Username%> this html is shown when the user is logged in <%endif%> and

<%ifnot Username%> this html is shown when the user is not logged in <%endif%>

You can put your graphical elements within these tags.

Most of the differeces are that you can offer special features, or turn off features, for users who are not logged in. When they log in, you know who they are, so you can limit ratings or reviews to logged in users -- and to one per user per link. Things like that.
