The Extranet module is moving to Shared Source

We have decided that the Shared Source section would be a better place for the Extranet module. So we moved it to the Shared Source section instead of the Free Modules, so now the module have its own project room and a place to download the source code for further development if anyone see fit to add contributions.

The Sitecore Extranet module gives you a predefined login form for separating the content on your site in public access and private access, so only people you want to have access to some secure places on your site can without the general public can.

It is placed under modules in the Shared Source section and I encourage developers who want to contribute to the Extranet module to send me a mail at (jo at sitecore dot net) and I will set up an account for them. This of course is also the way for other modules that you wish to extend with some functionality.

happy coding

  1. Will this work for Sitecore 6 ?

  2. Not at the moment, the security model in Sitecore 6 uses the .Net approach while the 5.3 version used the Sitecore security model. I am currently working on updating the Extranet module but I can’t say when it will be ready.

    If you feel like it you are more than welcome to checkout the source and have a look at upgrading in yourself. Seeing that it is shared source the source is available for you to play around with.
