I see lot of information on the forum, but also lot's of questions, .. i didn't solve mine by reading all the posts.
It looks like there is 3.7 and 4.x information (because people are upgrading).
At some point it seems very easy to me; just write a custom membership provider, right?
One that inherits from either Telerik.Sitefinity.Security.Data.MembershipDataProvider or Telerik.Sitefinity.Security.Data.OpenAccessMembershipProvider.
But i tried to do so, with a class that inherits the OA provider, with some overrides for the ValidateUser methods. I registered the provider in the backend and tried to validate a user with the following code:
UserLoggingReason reason = SecurityManager.AuthenticateUser("myMembershipProvider", txtLogin.Text.Trim(), txtPass.Text.Trim(), true);
But, nothing happens. No error. reason only has the value " Unknown" ..
Can you perhaps post a small 1-2-3 steps guide on how to do this? I looks like you can make lot's of people happy with that!
Thanks in advance!
