    Public Access? I'm stumped

    OK, so I've a node that I want protected, so I right click -> public access -> single user protection and fill out the appropriate fields. Assuming I don't run into this bug ( which crops up from time to time, that seems to work fine.

    Now what? I assume I have to build some type of form that posts to some page? I've search all over these forums, the old one,, google / bing.. I can't find anything.

    How do I actually make the login forms?!

    You can implement standard logincontrols, as they will hook into the membership provider in Umbraco. However, with this approach, I suggest granting permission to a member group instead of a single username/password.

    I believe there's a package in the repository called member Controls, that contain this functionality, if you don't know how to roll your own.

    Ok, so I create a member group, assign public access to that group on that node, slap a .net login control (although I'd rather not use their controls - any other options here?!) and then that's it? It will just work?

    HI Chad,

    Yes that's all you need to do to make this to work. Please not that you can modify the layout of the ASP.Net user controls. Check out this Post from Sebastiaan

    You could use the osmemberControls package which does most of the work for you.

    I have written a wiki page on how I implemented it:

    It may be worth having a look at the ClientArea package. This is an attempt to show how membership permissions and login controls can be created using pure xslt.
