From the Liferay Portal home page we can login to the portal by using the account test@liferay.com and the password test. Once you are logged in, you will see a set of default portlets on your main page. The default account you logged in with has Admin rights to the portal so you are now in complete control to use and customize the portal anyway you like. The rest of this chapter will outline some of the basic features and functionality of the portal.
