I would like to provide part of my websites that are available to members only and they will be required to login. In one case I would like people to be able to self register, for another, I want to add members to the system myself.

Question 1: How do I get a login block to appear on my public pages?
Question 2: How do I restrict some pages to members only?

The release coming out next week (v2.0.0, no beta!) will have better support for this; I'll reply to this once that's done...

Any news on this feature?

I would actualy need only login into backend from frontend. I saw that inputs are Email and Password but what is the action(to send data to)?

This is not working...

There is a method called LoginForm() on ContentController.

This means that you can put $LoginForm anywhere on your page and it will create a login form for you.

OK now...this works kind of... =)
I've been trying to figure out this, but it takes too much time :(, so any clue would be helpful.

Can u get more info on(any of that):
- How can I send user to: CMS(with $LoginForm works if I use <fieldset> in my code), some other page (login lets say), or the same page (with or without ajax)
- How to customize massages shown in ajax errors
- How to customize ajax actions itself

I have to write my own code for that, that's no problem, just tell me what do I have to subclass or what functions do I have to change.

I know I'm asking much here, but for now it seems to me that it is easier to write login function from scratch...witch would be bad becouse I see you got some cool functions in core for doing that.
Anyway any help would be great, tnx :)
