I am considering moving my existing website to sitefinity and am trying to get a handle on how my existing functionality would port.
In the majority of documentation i can find, anything to do with roles is in connection with CMS users/security.
Is there any documentation regarding how to create roles for non-CMS users.
My simple example would be 2 types of roles.
- Anon (any visitor to the website)
- RegisteredMember ( Visitors who have opened an account)
I would like to be able to block access to a certain sub folder of the front end website to Anon users except Registered members.
When an anon user attempts to access any page within the protected sub folder, they are redirected to a login page. I understand about forms authentication and authorization to relatively advanced degree (having implemented custom solutions) so I understand the concepts required to make this work here in the usual asp.net way.
Ideally I will use the existing sitefinity security framework by extending it and by utilising my own custom role provider (to authenticate users against a database and place them in the RegisteredMember role), however I am confused about the relationship / cross-over with CMS users/ roles and am extremely concerned about opening up my telerik admin system to the wrong user.
If you could point me to a decent tutorial or provide basic instructions on the steps to achieve the simple example above it would help me get started.
