I'm looking at creating a site with lots of contributes. It's basically an in house UI for a DB. I don't want to hand roll a user management system is there one out there I can just grab but doesn't try to control everything else I do?
I'm kind of looking at something like PHP Members. anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?

No responses yet. I'm guessing most everyone hanging out here rolls their own code. Once you have it all put together you could use it over and over again. Be certain to keep the user maintenance separate from the authentication process. You could then override the authentication process any time necessary.

If you can look at options other than php, perhaps Zope/Plone could work for you. Plone is a CMS and publishing platform that sits on top of the Zope application server.
I have built and managed sites with up to 10,000 members on a single instance of Zope. Contributors are able to post various types of content, depending on permissions and roles that you can assign.

Ha ha! Looks like it, I certainly do, and unless the boss man tells me to get something in, I usually do something bespoke so that I know exactly what's where and what it does, though it is time consuming, it does make it worth it because you learn about the system's and how they function.

Ooh, not heard of this one, might have to check that out; must admit though, on a bit of a hiatus wrt php at the moment - boss man given me a vb.net project to complete, needed to learn the syntax first ;)
Good luck with what ever path you choose, and if there is anything as you don't understand, post a question on here, and there are lots of helpful people who can advise and help you on your way.
