I've extended the CMS with Client's being able to log-in:


Object::add_extension('Group', 'GroupDecorator');
Object::useCustomClass('MemberLoginForm', 'CustomLoginForm');


   class GroupDecorator extends DataObjectDecorator {
	function augmentSQL(SQLQuery &$query) {}
	public function extraStatics(){
		return array(
			'db' => array(
				"GoToAdmin" => "Boolean"
			'has_one' => array(
				"LinkPage" => "SiteTree"


	public function updateCMSFields(FieldSet &$fields) {
	   $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Members", new CheckboxField("GoToAdmin", " Go to Admin area"), 'Members');
	   $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Members", new TreeDropdownField("LinkPageID", "Or select a Page to redirect to", "SiteTree"), 'Members');




class CustomLoginForm extends MemberLoginForm {

	// this function is overloaded on our sublcass (this) to do something different
	public function dologin($data) {
		if($this->performLogin($data)) {
				echo 'done';
		} else {
			if($badLoginURL = Session::get("BadLoginURL")) {
			} else {
	public function redirectByGroup($data) { 	
		// gets the current member that is logging in.
		$member = Member::currentUser();
		// gets all the groups.
		$Groups = DataObject::get("Group");
		//cycle through each group	
		foreach($Groups as $Group){
			//if the member is in the group and that group has GoToAdmin checked
			if($member->inGroup($Group->ID) && $Group->GoToAdmin == 1) 
				//redirect to the admin page
	 			Director::redirect(Director::baseURL() . 'admin' );
				return true;
			//otherwise if the member is in the group and that group has a page link defined
			elseif($member->inGroup($Group->ID)  && $Group->LinkPageID != 0) 
				//Get the page that is referenced in the group		
				$Link = DataObject::get_by_id("SiteTree", "{$Group->LinkPageID}")->URLSegment;
				//direct to that page
				Director::redirect(Director::baseURL() . $Link);
				return true;
		//otherwise if none of the above worked return fase
		return false;


This all works offcourse.. but it would be great if people could register on the website with a registration form.

People are not supposed to gain immediate acces -> the admin must activate their accounts first.
My idea is that they simply click activate in the CMS.

At the moment i have a separate register form, but the admin must retype all forms in the cms access panel.

How would I do this?
