I installed SS last night on my "big iron" at home, running Ubuntu 7.04, Apache2, PHP5. Installation went well as far as I can tell. I was able to login as the admin user and poke around the system. I didn't change anything, but I did manage to have a good browse. So far so good.
I thought to myself, "Let's create another user." So I logged out (the location of the logout function was a little less than obvious, but I found it) and found myself back at http://localhost/silverstripe/Security/login which was prompting me to enter my e-mail and password. Curiously, the page has the "Published Site" markup at the top of the screen. I wouldn't have thought that would be visible to anyone other than someone who was logged into the system. Also the "View page in: CMS/Draft Site/Published Site" was still visible in the bottom-left corner.
But those quirks aren't why I'm posting today.
So looking at his login screen, I see nothing which suggests being able to register a new user. I browsed the "Help" which wasn't terribly helpful in this regard. Lots on security, creating new groups and such, but not a whole lot regarding registering a new user. Unless somehow the word 'register' isn't being used, because that's the word I searched on. (I also tried 'login' but that brought me full circle back to the intro "now that you've created the admin login" lesson.)
So how does one create a new user? Taking a browse through here:
I managed to see references to tip-offs such as 'captcha' and 'email verification'. But for the life of me, I'm not seeing anything remotely suggesting that in my installation. I basically have two choices: Login as the original admin, or don't.
Just for giggles, I changed the URL to this: http://localhost/silverstripe/
I found myself at the "Welcome to SilverStripe! This is the default homepage. You can edit this page by opening the CMS." page. Still curiously with the red "Published Site" markup at the top, still with the "View page in: CMS/Draft Site/Published Site" in the bottom-left corner. And before anyone suggests that I delete my cookies, I'll say that this is what I'm seeing AFTER deleting my cookies. And for what it's worth, I'm not seeing anything worth noting in the Apache2's error.log (or access.log).
So what have I overlooked? Is there some obscure "allow other users to register" checkbox buried somewhere that I haven't seen yet? Or is my install horked, requiring a reinstall-from-scratch?
