Updating the Layout Page

Before we test our changes, let's update the layout page so that users will know when they're signed-in. We'll update the top menu to display "Register" and "Sign In" buttons if the user isn't authenticated, and "Add Entry" and "Sign Out" buttons if the user is authenticated.

Go ahead and open the "_Layout.cshtml" file located in the "Views/Shared" folder.
