    I'm trying to implement pure FBA in Sitefinity. I've changed site's settings to use FBA and I've also changed web.config with usual stuff described in the following link

    The thing is, when I do a FormsAuthentication.SetAuthCookie, I see the (.ASPXAUTH) cookie being created but somehow Context.User.Identity.IsAuthenticated returns always false.

    What I'm missing? is pure FBA supported?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, it is supported but the cookie name is customized. See Administration -> Settings -> Advanced -> Security -> AuthCookieName
