Hi All,
Please bear with me - still a newbie to this (but I like it and willing to learn!)

I've successfully extended the member table in the database, to contain information on address, telephone number etc., as well as two fields for 'AcceptTerms' (Boolean), and 'Enabled' (also boolean). What I need to do is, check if the account has been activated or not, and only allow the log in if it has, otherwise reject them.

The other thing I need to do, is if 'AcceptTerms' is false, display a link to the terms and conditions, and allow them to accept (update field, and continue with login).

As I said, I'm willing to learn, so I'm looking for more of guidance rather than answers. Any help would be gratefully appreciated!

Many Thanks,
