I need some advice/push in the right direction, please.

SS 2.4.1
blog 0.4.0

I'm using the blog module and I have comments turned on, but with login required to post a comment.

This works great except if someone wants to leave a comment and they're not already a member, they don't really have a way to "sign up" for an account as the default installation goes. So my question is, how would I go about implementing such a system?

Ideally I'd like to approve all requests by default. So if a user was to submit a request they would automatically be added to a member list and have access rights to post a comment. My thinking is that I could just make a form that adds a users signup info to the members list. That simple.

Does anyone have any insight into this? Any tutorials already written? Any suggestions?

Any help or ideas are greatly appreciated.

Ajshort has a good profile / registration module available -

Better than perfect, even.

Is this not listed in the modules?

This module is just one more reason to use SS.

No idea why its not listed!

As good as is, it is not a complete list. You can find a ton more on the svn repo or on some of the core developers (like ajshorts) github account. Defiantly one thing that could be an improvement to the modules section is including links to 'unreleased' subversion modules or github profiles (which it doesn't support).
