    Having trouble getting this to work like I want.  My issue is the following code works for my custom provider (logging in front side) but how can I get this code to work from cms provider (logging in back end) at the same time.

            Dim User As MembershipUser = Membership.GetUser() 
            If User.IsApproved() = False Then 
            End If 

    Currently I'm getting this error when trying to view page from back end.

    Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

    Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

    I'm running sitefinity 3.6 sp2.

    Here is my web.config provider setup:
            <roleManager enabled="true" cacheRolesInCookie="true" defaultProvider="SqlProvider"
                    <add connectionStringName="xConnectionString" applicationName="/xap" name="SqlProvider" type="System.Web.Security.SqlRoleProvider"/> 
                    <add connectionStringName="DefaultConnection" applicationName="/" name="Sitefinity" type="Telerik.DataAccess.AspnetProviders.TelerikRoleProvider, Telerik.DataAccess"/> 
            <membership defaultProvider="SqlProvider"
                    <add name="Sitefinity" connectionStringName="DefaultConnection" type="Telerik.DataAccess.AspnetProviders.TelerikMembershipProvider, Telerik.DataAccess" enablePasswordRetrieval="false" enablePasswordReset="true" requiresQuestionAndAnswer="false" applicationName="/" requiresUniqueEmail="false" passwordFormat="Hashed" maxInvalidPasswordAttempts="5" passwordAttemptWindow="10" passwordStrengthRegularExpression="" minRequiredPasswordLength="1" minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters="0"/> 
                    <add connectionStringName="xConnectionString" enablePasswordRetrieval="false" enablePasswordReset="true" requiresQuestionAndAnswer="true" requiresUniqueEmail="false" passwordFormat="Hashed" maxInvalidPasswordAttempts="5" minRequiredPasswordLength="6" minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters="0" applicationName="/xap" name="SqlProvider" type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider"/> 
            <profile defaultProvider="SqlProvider"
                    <add name="Sitefinity" connectionStringName="DefaultConnection" applicationName="/" type="Telerik.DataAccess.AspnetProviders.TelerikProfileProvider, Telerik.DataAccess"/> 
                    <add name="SqlProvider" type="System.Web.Profile.SqlProfileProvider" connectionStringName="xConnectionString" applicationName="/xap"/> 
                    <add name="FirstName"/> 
                    <add name="LastName"/> 
                    <add name="Office"/> 
                    <add name="District"/> 
                    <group name="Address"
                        <add name="Street1"/> 
                        <add name="Street2"/> 
                        <add name="City"/> 
                        <add name="State"/> 
                        <add name="Zip"/> 
                    <add name="Phone"/> 
                    <add name="PhoneExt"/> 
                    <add name="Fax"/> 
                    <add name="Email"/> 
                    <add name="AssessmentQuestions"/> 

    My login for front end is as follows:
    using System; 
    using System.Web.UI; 
    using System.Web.UI.WebControls; 
    using System.Web; 
    using Telerik.Security; 
    using System.Web.Security; 
    public partial class UserControls_FinalLoginControls_LoginControl : UserControl 
        void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) 
            this.Login1.LoggedIn += new EventHandler(Login1_LoggedIn); 
        void Login1_LoggedIn(object sender, EventArgs e) 
            HttpCookie cookie = this.Response.Cookies[FormsAuthentication.FormsCookieName]; 
            if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(Login1.MembershipProvider)) 
                UserManager man = new UserManager(Login1.MembershipProvider); 
            string redirectUrl = Request.QueryString["ReturnUrl"]; 
            if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(redirectUrl)) 
                redirectUrl = this.Login1.DestinationPageUrl; 
                redirectUrl = HttpUtility.UrlDecode(redirectUrl); 
            this.Page.Response.Redirect(redirectUrl, true); 
        public Login Login 
                return this.Login1; 
                this.Login1 = value;

    Hello Aaron,

    Well, it seems that the User object is for some reason null.
    Could you please describe the whole case in details, and send us the user controls you use for logging?

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
