    Ah, gotcha.

    So SilverStripe is meant to be more along the lines of Interwoven's Teamsite product.

    Yeah, although I'm not familiar with the product you mention I think it probably is.

    The best way to add "community site" functionality to the system would be with an add-on module.

    You know Sam, it really is inconvenient not having a module to do this at the moment. If we could point some folks towards that direction of making such a module it would be definitely handy. Perhaps I can start on one myself, but I certainly would like to see someone roll one with more experience with SS as we're dealing with authentication and security somewhat.

    ylon,

    Is this what you're talking about http://dev.tearaway.co.nz/register/ ? (You made need to reload the page to view it)

    Excuse the design - i've got a new template for the site - just haven't put it on.

    I've done this to a couple of SS sites and it's a fairly simple process.

    Cheers

    Indeed subvert, this is very much what we need as a module to quickly plug in. Is there a way that this can be extracted and we can make this into a module? I think it would be a pretty big hit as such and something that folks may semi-frequently need while working with SS.

    I have never made a module before - but I will attempt to convert my code in the next couple of weeks. I may need some guidance as to how to extend the Member database structure - I currently edit the DB array on Member.php - would anyone be able to tell me how to extend the Member database from a module?

    Curious subvert, in the interim could you delineate that which you did in order to facilitate login for secure or group-only visible pages?

    I did something in the same line for http://www.photoplaces.be/ about 8 months ago.

    You basically just need to create a form that writes to Member (or a subclass of it) and the group it's in, and that works in the same way as any other DataObject, as far as I can remember
