    I have 2 membership providers defined in my web.config.  I'm using the Sitefinity provider for logging into the CMS.  I want to use my custom provider for public users.

    I have a page which has both LoginStatus and LoginName controls.  I also have a Forums control.  When I view the page and log in, the two login controls show what I expect.  The first shows a "Logout" link and the second shows my user name.

    However, it feels like the forum thinks I'm an anonymous user.  It never shows any links to create a new thread or reply to a thread.

    Help me figure out the disconnect.

    Hello David,

    To use your second provider for the front end you can set the following property Login.MembershipProvider Property

    As for the forum, you can check whether there are any permissions applied under the backend (Forums > Permissions)
