I would like to have a few pages only to be visible after a user has logged in, but they
shouldn't have access to the CMS.

I mean, now after I login, it redirects the (guest)user to the CMS (which it doesn't have access to) , instead it should just return to the webpage and show the extra pages in the menu

how can I fix this?

I'm trying to do a similar thing. I have created the user in the security tab and set the access on the page to be viewed only by logged in users.
The problem I'm getting is when I try and log in as the user it keeps telling me I can't access the cms and doesn't log me in.

Is there something in the admin I need to set to say this user shouldn't access the admin, but can log in?

Thanks in advance,

Hi you both

I'm having a similar problem (using the latest Silverstripe). I've created a menu, made some of the pages visible only for a special group in the security panel, however something goes very wrong. This is what happens:

When you log in, not as an admin, but as a user in a special group, you get redirected to a page I've set using this tutorial from ssbits: - this part works fine.

Now logged in as a user in this special group I can view the secured pages (this is possible since I'm getting redirected to one of them), but if I refresh the browser or just clicks on any other menu link, the user gets logged out and all the secured menu links gets hidden again.

Have you got any ideas what goes wrong? Sessions?

Thanks for your help
