Customising the CMS

Redirect Group away from CMS

I've created a user group of basic users that should only be allowed to view content, however they are able to access the CMS and I don't want them to be able to. I've been trying to find a good place to slip in a check to see if someone is a member of this group and run a redirect upon attempting to access the /admin/ area, but have yet to find it. Anyone know where a good place for this would be?

The easiest way to do this without any code: Install the Forum-Modul. Than you have a group "Forum-Members", which you can subclass.

Why don't you just create a group without cms and admin access.

They can then login and view content which is set to loggedin users, but don't have backend access....

Or am I missing something?

I might have a look at the Forum module's user group to see how that's done, but for now I went ahead and added the redirect upon login bit of this [url=]recipe[/url] into the external authentication module on my install. Also editted LeftandMain's init() to redirect if the user is not a member of the Administrators group. Works for now. :)
