Silverstripe has definitely come at the right time for my project -- very exciting how quick it is to develop stuff. The tutorials (1-4) have been of high quality and extremely useful to bootstrap quickly.
However I'm a bit lost when it comes to authentication. My site will require authenticated access and I'm not really sure where first base is on this -- does Silverstripe support authenticated access? I'm assuming so because of the security bits but over that... any clues? Pointers to source at this stage is fine. Things I'm wanting to do:
- add a 'sign up' button taking them to a registration form with email verification
- add a 'login' button which shows a form for a user to log in
- add that login page as an interstitial if someone tries to access premium content -- i.e. they can click on the link but are redirected temporarily to the login page, after successful sign in of which it sends them to the page they wanted to go to.
