I haven't looked closely at the extensions out there for member
management. I believe that a common approach is to just piggy-back on
the existing users, but personally I would not do that. The purpose of
Radiant's users and your extra users are different enough that they
make sense being separate, and you'd also control that better by
rolling your own authentication scheme. I think Ba does this
I think I agree completely with Jim on this one. I've always viewed the
Radiant login system as being there for the content managers... not for
forum users, general public who need to log in to comment, or for the
kind of task you have in mind. I would treat the Radiant users as "us"
[who provide the service/ content] and the rest of the users (logged in
or otherwise) as "them" [recipients of the service].
I'm curious to see the responses to how to achieve what you want to do -
I want to go in that direction myself.
