The entry in the manual does not address my problem.
The code entry
MembershipProvider prov = UserManager.Default.MembershipProvider;
I replace admin with my administrator account name, put the code in the Page_load of a page, put it on my website and tried it out. seemed to work. But didn't change a thing, still cannot log in with or without password.
Shows a user that is already logged in and the ability to reset their password. Pardon, but if I could log in we wouldn't be having this discussion.
And btw, the users I've been adding are NOT in telerik_Users, I've been looking using SQL Management Console. So something is going terribly wrong.
