Hi All,

Few days back i have download BlogEngine.NET 1.4.5 source code and tried to debug the application. I didnt found from where the ValidateUser method is calling. It executes after the


BindMenu(); which is written in menu.ascx.cs page load method.

Can any one tell me from where its getting called.

my requirement is I want to auto login if any user visit the blog from my site

if is my site and i have included
if any user logs into with their credentials and visit blog.testapplication after logging then i want autologging to blog with the same credentials
else if the user directly visits then they have to enter credentials in login page

can anyone give/ send the solution

Thanks in advance

I am in process of looking into this myself in a similar fashion.  Have blog, wiki in different directories.

A key which I have come across is to have the same <machineKey validationKey

A recommendation is to search the web for this topic for InstantForum by InstantASP.  They talk about this type of integration issue.
