Stupid Microsoft Bug for LoginUrl RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1690009347 posted

    I have just come across a quite frankly ridiculous bug that seems to have been introduced my Microsoft in ASP.Net. Just thought I would post it here to let people know how to fix the dumb bug.

     

    My site was redirecting to Account/Login no matter what I set as the LoginUrl in forms authentication and it was driving me mad as there was no reference at all to Account/Login in the entire solution.

     

    After some searching I came across the following article:

    http://geekswithblogs.net/WinAZ/archive/2011/08/31/formsauthentication-ignores-web.config-loginurl-settings.aspx

     

    It seems that the loginurl setting in forms authentication is totally useless as it is ignored. So an appsetting entry pointing to your login page is required eg <add key="loginUrl" value="~/Login.aspx" />

    I did this and suddenly my site worked as expected at last!

     

    How microsoft have not fixed this yet is anyones guess as it seems quite a major issue, also I still have no idea where it was getting the account/login reference from.
