if you use the security and roles
the only thing you wold have to do is make the portlets of the 
information you want.

have a go at modifying it myself, eventually, but not for now.

>>> Hi all!
>>> I'm going to have to demo OFBiz tomorrow, I'm very glad to finally be able to
play with the software, and to start trying things out with it.
>>> Just wondering: Is there any way to login for the entire site, straight from
the start? Or can I set OFBiz to redirect me to a "home" if I try to log in an unauthorized
page? (Currently using 10.04)
>>> I tried to login in Party Manager with an account given only Catalog permissions,
and here is what I encountered:

>>> In my opinion, it is unclear from a user standpoint what exactly is happening
here, and why isn't something else happening. The account is registered, the login details
are fine too, and there is no mention on the page (save the address bar) that I'm currently
trying to login to the Party Manager application.
>>> I'm probably going to go with a custom root application that asks for a login,
and then just display a custom landing page for the user, showing him the applications he
can use both from the menu and with cute little icons, for the sake of simplicity. Might also
modify the menu to show the icons inside it. Enough rambling on, back to testing stuffs and
preparing my showcase for tomorrow!
>>> Thank you!
