I have an old Sitefinity site which I recently updated to the latest patch version and everything works fine except as part of the update I've added some new profile properties and updated my registration page to store these additional properties when the user registers.
However, it seems that when I save the users profile it doesn't get persisted so the telerik_Profile table remains empty.
OK, so I thought this might be my code so I tried storing profile information through the main Administrator page, to start with just saving the 'position' for a current user since this is a standard profile property in the latest Sitefinity version but this isn't being persisted either.
Now I should explain that in this site I do use my own Role and Membership providers but this shouldn't be a problem since I'm using the Telerik Profile provider out of the box.
So I'm thinking one of the following may be at fault.
* The profile provider provided with Sitefinity assumes I'm using the standard Membership provider so looks in the telerik_Users table which I'm not using.
* There's some small change I missed while updating the project to the latest patch version but looking in web.config it looks to me at least like it's using the correct provider supplied with the toolkit.
* Something else I haven't considered.
I don't want to have to impliment my own profile provider if I can help it so can you think of anything that may be stopping the profile from being stored considering that the site is using its own Membership and Role providers?
It's literally just a case of the details not being stored but no errors when I go to store profile details.
Thanks in advance.
