I am facing a issue with the custom login,
i have created a page which allows the user to login from the existing system to the forum directly
the following is the code
String yafPassword = FormsAuthentication.HashPasswordForStoringInConfigFile(Password.Value, "md5");
string appName = "YetAnotherForum";
object userKey = YAF.Providers.Profile.DB.GetProviderUserKey(appName, Username.Value);
DataRow yafUser = YAF.Providers.Membership.DB.GetUser(appName, userKey, Username.Value, true);
if (yafUser == null)
// User not registered in YAF forum.
// Register the user now.
YAF.Providers.Membership.DB.CreateUser(appName, Username.Value, yafPassword, "", 0, Email.Value, "", "", true, YAF.Providers.Profile.DB.GetProviderUserKey("YetAnotherForum", Username.Value));
YAF.Providers.Roles.DB.AddUserToRole(appName, Username.Value, "Registered"); System.Web.Security.FormsAuthentication.SetAuthCookie(Username.Value, true);
the cookie is geetting set , however the user he new user thus created is not able to see the forums ( it only shows blank) same with the Active Discussions , if the user has been created by the forums register section then it shows forums
Please advice ( i checked with the tables and there are values present in the users and role membership tables)
