I am rewriting my-list.com in ASP.NET 2.0, C#. The original version was a Perl CGI web application, principally because at the time I was working for a company whose development environment was Perl. I have since changed employers where ASP.NET development rules. So ... that prompted me to do a rewrite. Overall the ASP.NET development environment is orders of magnitude easier and faster then Perl. This of course assumes one knows both.
Now to my frustration. The LoginStatus control does not work in my instance. Specifically, I added this control to my splash page with a text value of "Member Login". Clicking on the link redirects users to the login page. The login page uses the Login control with it's DestinationPageUrl set to the proper page. The problem is that a successful login redirects the user back to the site splash page and not the DestinationPageUrl. When I remove the LoginStatus control form the splash page a successful login gets redirected properly. I am not sure why my original configuration will not work ... a search of the internet did not help. If you have any ideas your comments would be appreciated.
