I am rather new to SiteFinity, but am having issues getting standard .NET Login controls to work on pages that I create. I would prefer using the standard controls if possible but am having the following issues.
System.Web.UI.WebControls.Login control does not authenticate users, must use Telerik.Sitefinity.Security.Web.UI.LoginForm.
System.Web.UI.WebControls.LoginName control works fine once logged in, and can also get at identity details in code by using Page.User, etc.
System.Web.UI.WebControls.LoginStatus control does not work.. Always says "Logout", and when clicked does not actually log the user out. I have also attempted using FormsAuthentication.SignOut() in code, but the user still remains logged in.
Is there something sepecial that needs to be done to force a logout?
I have read the documentation and see very little on the subject of security other than how to create a user, role, etc, but nothing on how to gain access to the user objects at runtime for front end membership.
For example does the SiteFinity framework have something similar to Page.User that I should be using?
