one of my clients wants a new website with a hidden product catalogue. They want users to sign up through a sign-up form first and then be admitted into the product catalogue.
I already told them that this feature is rather difficult to implement but they want it anyway.
I wonder if there's any third-party solution for signing in members, let them choose their own passwords etc? Each member should be vetted by one of the company staff in order to get admitted into the product catalogue eventually.
I have worked with [Expression Engine and [URL="http://symphony-cms.com"]Symphony CMS](http://expressionengine.com) a lot in the past. But none of these offers the exact functionality that is required here.
Can anybody give me a hint what third party solution and / or CMS to use here?
Thanks for any help!!
