    Member type properties

    I've searched the web & looked around in umbraco but can't figure out what "Member can edit" and "show on profile" is for?

    I'd like to create some member profile pages that members can edit themselves.  I know how to do this in standard membership provider with user controls etc but the UI seems to imply that there's something built in to umbraco?

    Hi Claire,

    Both properties are used in some controls (umbracoext project on Codeplex), originating from v3 (pre membership stuff). But it sure can be used to build the user controls and check whether specific properties may be seen/updated by a member.


    Hope this helps.

    OK, thanks for that Dirk.  I'm beginning to get my head around how membership works in Umbraco.  I have a couple of community type sites I'd like to move to umbraco & wondering the best way to go about it.  From what I can tell (& from a couple of new posts in this forum today, thankyou Slace), the future is the standard ASP.NET membership/role/profile providers.  It will be interesting to see what the community comes up with, I will have a look at osMemberControls but sadly it doesn't look like anything's happening there lately.

    Hi Claire

    I'm the developer working on osMemberControls.  There has been a few updates recently and the package is working on a number ofproduction sites I and others look after.

    I haven't made a new "package" for the controls for a while, however if you are familar with Visual Studio you can download the latest source code from and implement it that way.

    I'll try and get a new packaged version up in the next few days.

    Ah hello skiltz!  I'm very glad to hear your project is still active, it looked rather quiet at codeplex & I went to your website link which was dead (?)

    Yes I will definitely download the source from codeplex (or checkout your new package) but it will be a while before I get around to it as I have other work to get onto this week.

    I just added the user controls to my visual studio project, compiled & copied the dll to the website.
