I'm building a website that requires users to log in before they can access any of the content stored on the site however I can't work out how to make the website default to the log in page when started up. Does this require a module that will hard code the redirect for me? Or is there another way that I haven't been able to see yet?

I haven't got my head around how to use layers correctly yet to only show content where I want it to appear - are the two "problems" perhaps related?

One simple way is to go to the "Users" page in the admin dashboard. Select the "Roles" tab, edit "Anonymous" role, uncheck the "Access site front-end" option, and click "Save" at the bottom of the page
