I hope someone had some experience with a member login form. My aim is to insert members (First name, Last name, email and password) into the database by hand.

Once a user click to open a page this page should be redirected to a login form where email and password (just like the CMS login) gets checked against the database entries. If all is good the user will finally see the requested page.

I'm still not really familiar with the syntax especially to show dbfields on a form. I have tried that in pure PHP but SS syntax is a bit different.

If someone has done something before I would appreciate to see the code for that.

Did you ever get this working on your own? I'd love to know how u did it.

isn't this just a matter of setting the permissions on the page?

If you make a new user group under security and then set a certain page to be only viewable by that group then it will take you to a login form if you are not already logged in.

Is that what you mean?
