Login Control Works But Can't Log Back In with Password

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 09, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Good Day,


This is weird:

website: icethestore.com (I know the site is not visually appealing, I'm just trying to get the functionality correct for now!

If you click my login link, you are taken to the login.aspx page - which I have named The Membership Center.

If you create an account - you account information will be sent to the email address you registered with.

After getting the email and copying the password, I return to the membership page and change the password, and get a message that my password change was successful.

Now here is what is strange:

If I use the original password sent (meaning I did not change it) or even if I changed it and I use the password I changed it to (with no errors) i only get a message : Your login attempt was not successful. Please try again.

I am just using default login control, createnewuserwizard control and password change control.

Yet, if I choose to recover my password (again using the default control) - I do get an email with my account name and a new password that it has been changed to, but, still can not login with that password either, still get: Your login attempt was not successful. Please try again.

I check my database and the memberships and users are there!

Please, any help on what could be wrong is appreciated!

Login control is suddenly broken in IE7 but works perfectly on Firefox (It works on both browsers lo


Hey Guys,

 I'm new around and I thought this is probably the best place to help me solve my dilemma, I am developing a website for almost a year now and the login control was implemented a logn time ago, however all of a sudden it will not authenticate on Internet Explorer 7 when the application is published, it doesn't even provide a message that authentication was unseccssful or throws any error, it just refreshes the same page. however this problem doesn't occure when I try the same website on FireFox 2.0...Also when I run the page locally on Cassini it work great on both browsers...This is one of the weirdest errors I have ever faced. what could have gone wrong on the server side to cause this? knowing nothing changed on the server-side...I'll provide a snapshot of the login control below

SharePoint 2010 AD FS 2.0 Integration - login works then fails, looping back to the adfs server

Hello, I setup SharePoint 2010 Claims auth with AD FS 2.0 following this post: http://blogs.technet.com/b/speschka/archive/2010/07/30/configuring-sharepoint-2010-and-adfs-v2-end-to-end.aspx.  I have no access to the ADFS server, but I think they followed the steps as outlined.  If I do an iisreset (or just recycle the app pool of the SharePoint site) I can login successfully using the remote credentials.  Also I can under security in SharePoint search for and find users and roles from the remote ADFS server. If I close my browser, open a new browser and go to the site I am prompted to login again (this is fine).  I do, using the same credentials, and the login fails because I am redirected between the SP and ADFS servers until the ADFS server stops the redirecting.  I have been doing some digging and I found this post: http://blogs.technet.com/b/speschka/archive/2010/08/09/setting-the-login-token-expiration-correctly-for-sharepoint-2010-saml-claims-users.aspx, which describes the situation I have in point # 3 at the bottom.  I have tried setting the token time out as low as 1 second but this hasn't helped. I have also, just to see, tried setting all the other lifetime settings to 1 second - but no luck.  Because the initial login works I think the setup is correct, but something is maintaining some state that is causing the loop

How to modify the login control



I'd like to record more information than the default control allows as well as perform actions with the input when the form is submitted but I'm having trouble figuring out how.

So firstly, if I want to record the middlename for example, how would I do that, and by default, where would it go if anywhere?
When the form is submitted, I'd like to take specific input, such as just the middlename for example, and write some linq to sql code to specify when and how it's stored.
In what event would I put this code?

'Display the failure message in a client-side alert box
ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(Me.GetType(), "LoginError", _

Issue with Remember Me on User Login control


Hi everyone,

     I hope you can help me, I tried Google, but none of the solutions worked. Using VB.net and Membership, I have a login control in my master page with a remember me check box. When I check this box and login, some pages indicate that I am not logged in. If I go to another page, it will then indicate that I am still logged in. I have isolated one page that always indicates I am not logged in the first time I visit it, but if log in a second time and then go to it, it will finally recognize me as a user that is properly logged in. 

Some pages that this occurs on is in the top level, some pages are in a sub folder.

My MasterPage has the following Form Code:

<body bgcolor="#E0ECF9" topmargin="0" leftmargin="0">

    <form id="form1" runat="server">

My Aspx file has a troubleshooting label, several Gridviews and several DetailViews:

    <asp:Label ID="lblErRep" runat="server" Text=""></asp:Label>

My aspx.vb file has 1 line of code (Protec

Login Control

Hello everybody. I am new in ASP.NET and currently working on my first web application. It is my college project. This is basically an online leave application. Which consists various label, text field etc. Now I am thinking to do this job by the following procedure. Suppose in the time of the recruitment, an organization will give a username (it may be the name of the employee) and a defined password. Now that user should logged-in to fill up his/her leave application from designed web site. When the user logged in the leave application form will be filled up by his/her name, designation etc. And there will be other things also. My team and I will submit the project along with arbitrary examples of employee. So basically what I have to do is to implement a login control with database. I want to know how I can do this job. I don't need any code. Only information/idea/any useful link will be very helpful to me. Thank you.
