Hi,

Is there a way I can have someone register on the parent portal but have them members of a specific child portal only?

I realize I can change the db manually to move them from parent to child and will do this if need be (nightmare)

Is there a trigger that I can set up to have this done? I don't know yet how to make or use triggers but then that's what learning is all about. I just don't want to go down a dead end road if a trigger isn't going to work.

Thanks

Bob

not in platform by default (evoq content has that capability with "site groups" - I believe there is a forge module that replicates some of this but i havent looked into it, and it's obviously not supported)

you could do this via a custom authentication provider - http://www.dnnsoftware.com/wiki/page/authentication_providers (i've done something similar for a customer where they register with one portal which also does 3rd party authentication integration and once passed registers with half a dozen other portals by adding UserPortals records -which means there is a "shared" user account)

I should also note that triggers are a poor approach to this - they often lead to unexpected effects, in particular causing upgrades to fail as there are unexpected objects on a platform table.

Bob, using default registration module will register the user on the current website, which will affect a number of tables, at least three of them contain site specific entries: userPortals, userProfile, userRoles, which are difficult to "move" to another site using any approach and might brake with a future DNN upgrade. As Cathal suggested, a custom registration module might be the better approach, which signs up for the appropriate website using DNN API.

Triggers are a powerful feature of SQL Server, but require some knowledge, as they might affect performance significantly and might affect DNN upgrades in rare conditions.

Thanks guys, I appreciate your feedback.

I think I'm getting in a little over my head so I'm going to scale back a bit.

I can get the site operational without this extra stuff and as both of you suggest triggers can be tricky, I think it best to keep things simple for now.

I have a lot to learn and no point in trying to learn it all at once.

Thanks again.

PS: That doesn't mean I won't be back here with more questions...
