I'm quite new to Silverstripe and currently trying to make a module where 2 different kinds of users can register themselves or edit their profile.

To achieve this, I would like to use the multiform module. I installed it and it works using the kind of procedure described in the tutorials and the silverstripe book (using a specific page for the registration, which can be placed in the menu).

However, I tried to make a user registration proces similar to the one in the forum module, using a "register" action in a "BusinessUser" page controller, without a specific page. It then shows step 1 of the form correctly, but doesn't proceed to step 2.

Can anyone please explain a bit what's going wrong here (so that I learn a bit more about the idea behind the system) and probably give a suggestion how to deal with it?

class BusinessRegistrationMultiForm extends MultiForm {
public static $start_step = 'BusinessRegistrationFirstStep';

// ...

class BusinessRegistrationFirstStep extends MultiFormStep {
   public static $next_steps = 'BusinessRegistrationLastStep';
   function getFields() {
      $fields = singleton( 'Member' )->getBusinessFirstFields();
      return $fields;

class MemberProfile extends Page_Controller {

function register() {
return array(
"Title" => 'titel',
"Subtitle" => 'Register',

function Link($action = null) {
return "$this->class/$action";


class BusinessProfile extends MemberProfile {

   function BusinessRegistrationForm() {
      return new BusinessRegistrationMultiForm($this, 'BusinessRegistrationForm');

And then in

<div id="UserProfile">
   <% if CurrentMember %>
      <p><% _t('PLEASELOGOUT', 'Please logout before you register') %> - <a href="Security/logout"><% _t('LOGOUT', 'Logout') %></a></p>
   <% else %>
   <% end_if %>

Thanks, Jeroen.

I added the following code to all steps:

public function Link() {
return Controller::curr()->Link() . 'register?MultiFormSessionID=' . $this->Session()->Hash;

It works, but shouldn't this be handled by the multiform module itself? Why does it cutoff the "register" (action) part if I don't include this code in the steps?
