    I am looking at using sitefinity for a website that requires a support section that allows multiple users to login and access information. Users would have a pretty basic profile. What would be the best way to accomplish this?

    I was thinking of writing some sort of module that had a register, profile, and login pages. And then a theme that would redirect to login page if not logged in. Could someone point me in the right direction for information on how to accomplish this or another method to accomplish this?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Hello Mark Davidson,

    We can recommend two approaches for public users implementation:
    • using the same Membership providers as Cms users, you could define a role for public users and then implement a logic in your public pages for separating public users zone from Cms users zone;
    • using different Membership providers for public users data store.
    We have plans to create a module for public users in the future versions of Sitefinity.


    All the best,

    Rebecca -

    Which of these would you consider the best practice? Which of these will you be implementing for the public users module?

    Sincerely,

    Ben

    Hi Ben,

    We cannot say which the best practice as this depends on your specific scenario.
    Most probably, we will support  both cases in our Public Users module.
