Are you syncing your custom UserProfile List with Sharepoint's internal profile list, or is there a way to add the Membership columns to the existing sharepoint/wss profile list with user restrictions on the sensitive membership columns?

I'm thinking about creating a Membership ContentType that is added to the existing profile list as a feature with application pages to view/edit. Can you restrict users from added this ContentType to their own custom lists.

After the installation when you try to login, login page reloads itself, what can cause such a problem?

Could you explain that would have to do to adapt to 2010

SharePoint Kings said...


concept of membership provider will be the some so it should work on 2010 also.

only thing you need to change is how to connect our provider from web.config
