Are you able to help with the login issues (as a user and as admin).
I believe it could be related to the authentication and [url removed, login to view] file might be the fault.
I'm still hoping to get the app working, while learning what the the code is doing, and it looks almost there.
Were you able to login as a user or access the admin panel?
I could have work for additional features that I have in mind, once I see the backend as it is.
