    SilverStripe Authentication Link to this post

    I'm new to SilverStripe, but I like what I see so far. I'm wondering if the External Authentication is a good module to use or if there is a better option. The site I'm working on needs to allow visitors register to see hidden pages. But there are also "special" visitors that can see "special" pages not seen by general registered visitors. Basically, three tiers of authentication in addition to Admin, > public / registered / special.

    Any thoughts on this?

    thank you, Kevin

    What was your solution to this? There are some nice Modules out there that can help, but I would like to know what your solution ended up being.

    As far as I am aware, external authentication is used to sync your silverstripe users database with a thirdparty location (eg. LDAP).

    IF you check out the forum module, that includes 'register now' functionality that you can either extend or duplicate.

    Is this Forum starting to get spam? SilverStripe? Should you be looking out?

    @Terry yeah it's getting a bit of spam on and off. We have a recaptcha setup for registering but will think about adding one for posting as well.

    There's a long standing ticket to migrate forum to use memberprofiles (http://open.silverstripe.org/ticket/5731) which has email validation for users that I imagine will kill most.

    Oh god, please don't add Captcha for posts as well! I have always had really good luck with the built in Math Spam protector. It is amazing how much spam that simple little question blocks.

    Hah! with you on that one Mo, I'm thinking email verification for new users would filter 90% of the spam so going to try that first. Perhaps also use a captcha for a users first post?

    Anyone implemented email verification and still had issues with spam?
