Web page not detecting a logged in user/user not logging in

Hey guys

As it stands, I've created two web pages within my app. One is a login page which is simply a blank page with the login control dragged on top. Within this control I redirect to my second page which contains a set of asp:Panels that are supposed to hide/display depending on which user is browsing the page.

I've read several tutorials and at the moment, I've installed memberships/roles using the aspnet_regsql application. I've also used the web administration tool to create an 'administrators' role and create a user which is assigned to that role. I've also added a custom membership provider and role provider which connect to a remote db as I won't be keeping these details on this machine. I've tested them within the WAT and they both seem to be connecting fine.

Anyway, I tried at first by adding the <authorization> tags to the web.config and allowing the user I created, while denying all unlogged users. This worked fine and I was only granted access when I was logged in with my test account.

I then took the next step of allowing ALL users to my page, although displaying certain panels depending on which user was logged in. To do this, on the page_load, I did:

    pnlTest.Visible = true;
    pnlTest.Visible = false;

This doesn't work at all as the user doesn't seem to be recognised. I also tried just doing a simple Response.Write(User.Identity.UserName); and nothing appeared.

I'm not sure why but my page doesn't seem to be detecting any logged in user, even though the authentication works on the login page and the user gets redirected fine to the new page.

Anyone know what the problem could be?

Any help is much appreciated, thanks.

ah nvm, I fixed it now... it was because I'd specified the wrong dir in my web.config for the 'path' attribute of the <form> tags :)

Serious issue: parts of pages render as if the user is logged in, parts render as if the user isn't logged in
'm having a very difficult time with some of our new pages. We've moved to a web farm, and it seems in spurts it will come where parts of my page think the user is logged in, and parts think the user is not logged in. It seems to happen to an entire control. (None of the controls have OutputCache set) For example, our login control on top will appear showing the user is logged inw hen they have been redirected to RegNewUser, but RegNewUser will display instead of redirecting as if the user were actually logged in. The MachineKey option in the web.config is set to a generated SHA1, s...

I am building a CMS application. All is on one computer during development using Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition and Windows XP Professional.

Single page with multiple user web controls VS Multiple page with specific user web controls
I have a question regarding single page with multiple user web controls vs multiple page with specific user web controls   Option 1: I am of the opinion to have multiple pages with specific user web controls and use an object to store all the information as the user navigates through the application. And finally at the end, read this object and save all the information to the backend database.   Option 2: My respected team member suggests that we have only one page, with all the specific user web controls and not use an object, instead show/hide the user web controls based ...

How to Get the Currently Logged in Computer User within the Web Page
I'm creating an ASP.Net web application and the requirement is that users on our intranet ( AD-LDAP authenticated ) have the option, when first browsing to the logon page, to either be logged on through their current user account automatically, or be given a chance to log on as a different user. So the Logon page needs to be able to determine who is currently logged on to the computer. How can I do this? I have the LDAP forms-based authentication working already.
