  I had just set up my blog and had added a About Us Page and everything had been working.  I signed out.  And then I went to sign in again as a regular user I get the following error.  I can't even sign in as as myself - the administrator.

Server Error in '/Blog' Application.

Runtime Error

Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".

<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
    <system.web>
        <customErrors mode="Off"/>
    </system.web>
</configuration>

Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.

<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
    <system.web>
        <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>
    </system.web>
</configuration>

I found the problem for this error.

I created a page and made it the front page.  If I then tried to sign in I get the error.  I unchecked the page I made (that I wanted to be my frontpage) and it reverted to showing the blog postings and the sign in worked.

Is this a bug???  Shouldn't you be able to create the static page and have it as the home page and users can still log in from there?
