I have spent a large portion of today fighting the good fight with Typo3. Typo3 won the battle. I am sure if I knew what I am doing it would have been an easy task, but since I am still fumbling with that CMS, it was very hard and didn’t yield anything like what I hoped it would do. Bummer!
Out of morbid curiosity I looked for a similar plugin in WordPress and I found this one. Switching to WordPress looks like a brilliant idea right now… Sob! registration
