    Default Login/Register

    Ok a simple question. Using the built in security of V11, is it possible to redirect an unregistered user to a registration page. Example...new person goes to website and is presented with logon dialog (built in security window), and enters a username and password, but they are not registered in the system and it prompts them "User not found, would you like to register?" with a yes/no button. If Yes, redirected to a registration page where they can sign up and then be directed to another page after registration with them logged in.
    I do not want to have to build a custom login, just be able to modify the built in security to check for if they are registered and if not ask if they would like to.
    Its no big deal if it can not be done, I can always put a register button on the login page.

    Thanks

    How would they know what username and password to enter if they had not previously registered?

    Anyway, go to the login dialog and to the Properties. Change the Login Failed property to <a href="register.a5w">Login failed, click here to register.</a>. Change register.a5w to your own registration page. If they type in a bogus login they will get this message as a hyperlink.

    It makes no sense though, because they will not likely enter a username/password knowing they are not registered. Unless you have sent everyone a notice telling users to login using xxx/yyy login credentials, which are bogus because they really are not registered. Its confusing either way.

    Carrying on from what Steve says you also make a poor/confusing situation for a registered user who has made a typo.
