I've extended the CMS with Client's being able to log-in:


Object::add_extension('Group', 'GroupDecorator');
Object::useCustomClass('MemberLoginForm', 'CustomLoginForm');


class GroupDecorator extends DataObjectDecorator {
   function augmentSQL(SQLQuery &$query) {}
   public function extraStatics(){
      return array(
         'db' => array(
            "GoToAdmin" => "Boolean"
         'has_one' => array(
            "LinkPage" => "SiteTree"


   public function updateCMSFields(FieldSet &$fields) {
    $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Members", new CheckboxField("GoToAdmin", " Go to Admin area"), 'Members');
    $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Members", new TreeDropdownField("LinkPageID", "Or select a Page to redirect to", "SiteTree"), 'Members');




class CustomLoginForm extends MemberLoginForm {

   // this function is overloaded on our sublcass (this) to do something different
   public function dologin($data) {
      if($this->performLogin($data)) {
            echo 'done';
      } else {
         if($badLoginURL = Session::get("BadLoginURL")) {
         } else {

   public function redirectByGroup($data) {    

      // gets the current member that is logging in.
      $member = Member::currentUser();
      // gets all the groups.
      $Groups = DataObject::get("Group");
      //cycle through each group   
      foreach($Groups as $Group){
         //if the member is in the group and that group has GoToAdmin checked
         if($member->inGroup($Group->ID) && $Group->GoToAdmin == 1)
            //redirect to the admin page
             Director::redirect(Director::baseURL() . 'admin' );
            return true;
         //otherwise if the member is in the group and that group has a page link defined
         elseif($member->inGroup($Group->ID) && $Group->LinkPageID != 0)
            //Get the page that is referenced in the group      
            $Link = DataObject::get_by_id("SiteTree", "{$Group->LinkPageID}")->URLSegment;
            //direct to that page
            Director::redirect(Director::baseURL() . $Link);
            return true;
      //otherwise if none of the above worked return fase
      return false;


This all works offcourse.. but it would be great if people could register on the website with a registration form.

People are not supposed to gain immediate acces -> the admin must activate their accounts first.
My idea is that they simply click activate in the CMS.

At the moment i have a separate register form, but the admin must retype all forms in the cms access panel.

How would I do this?
