Small glitch in membership provider

While trying the features of MWPSK yesterday, I noticed that the "DeleteUser" method is not completely implemented.

If you remove members, previously assigned to roles, the Roles.config file will still contain old references to users that no longer exist in the system - fix:

  • Open the "CustomXmlMembershipProvider.cs" file and locate the "DeleteUser" method

  • Modify the method so that it looks like this:

public override bool DeleteUser(string username, bool deleteAllRelatedData)
DataRow[] rows = _users.Select(string.Format("Username='{0}'", username));
if (rows.Length > 0)
if (deleteAllRelatedData)
string[] roles = Roles.GetRolesForUser(username);
if (roles.Length > 0)
Roles.RemoveUserFromRoles(username, roles);

return true;
return false;

Additional to that I found another bug in the managament of the roles, which were not updating after creating a new user.
Both fixes will be included in the next release candidate 1.1.0.
