I have a standard EPiServer 6 installation on machine. All pages in my app are of a certain type of news - i.e. 'Press Release', or 'Whats new'.. etc and therefore this info will by default be stored in the EPiServer db as properties.
I am creating a web app that has a 'Register' page which allows users to register their details and subscribe to be notified about certain types of news. So a user can register to be notified about all 'Press Release' pages.
My question is: do I need a separate project (with bll & dal) that I use to store this user info in my database and then somehow integrate this db table with the EPiServer db to map which news a user is interested in?
Or is there a better way to do all this within standard EPiServer functionality?
EPiServer uses the standard ASP.NET membership and roles provider. You can use this for storing your users and adding this information to their profiles.
Hope this helps.
