It's unbelievably difficult to understand why there is not a login portlet/module/whatever, so that people/members of a team can login and logout. The default install, has some user named 'Alias', but once the install is complete, there is no way to LOGIN ANYWHERE!

This makes a potentially very useful tool into something that doesn't pass the first usability test. I can't think of a website anywhere, that doesn't offer a user a way to login, to parcel out roles and security. You are alone there. And people will not flock to this product until you have a clear login item on the home page and on the menu.

And I mean a login in the web page. Not just assuming windows authentication, but assuming windows authentication WITH a login box. Too bad. I had high hopes for using this in our next project.

Sorry your OOB experience hasn't been great. Hopefully you took a few moments to read the install documents and to go through the tutorials?

There is a page to setup users and roles - its under the admin / users menu. Once there you can add users, set perms, etc.

Also, given you have all the source available, if you want to write a login page, feel free. Post the source up and we'll incorporate it into the product.
