    Hello Friends,

    I have integrated blogs from blogengine.net and i am logging into my website using Windows LiveID and i want the same login id(i.e. windows liveID) to be used for Blog.

    When i Loged In and open blog page then it will open it in editable mode i.e. add/ edit blog post like we login into blog to edit/add posts. Is it possible if yes then please tell the procedure for this?

    Right now i am using two different crentials to perform any actions on main site and on blog site. I want single sign in for main and blog site using Windows LiveID.

    Anyone hase idea about this please do reply.


    Thank You

    In the blogengine.net login page you can use Iframe to windows login authentication. You can keep a list of usernames in your database which contain only the usename (password is same as the username) So once you get a valid windows live user you can call

    Memebership.ValidateUser(UserId, UserId); create the autentication cookie.

    Please refer this article for more information

    However in MSDN says

    The default provider stores membership information in a Microsoft SQL Server database. However, you can use other providers as well, such as a provider for Windows Live ID

    Reference, which is the ideal case. Please do have a look at it as well.
