I'm experienced with .NET development and development in other CMS, but this is the first customisation I'll have ever done in Sitefinity. I tried finding documentation about the Sitefinity Forum module on Google but most results returned referred to these dev forums. I had a look at the user and programmer's docs but couldn't find my answer there either...
I want two things:
- When anonymous users are browsing forums, there should be text beside the new thread, new post buttons, and reply buttons which indicates they need to sign in to create a thread / post a new item / reply.
- When anonymous users click new thread or new post they should be redirected to the site's login page with messaging about why they were redirected there; when they finish logging in they should be redirected back to the page they were originally at
I have several threads in the forum module which may be browsed anonymously, but require registration login to post in or create new threads. I've done this purely through configuration just enabling the correct permissions on forums.
Not sure if this is a configuration or programmatic change, or if it is even possible.
