I have downloaded the latest version of the kit and set it up according to the documentation.

However, when I create a new administrative user and try to log into the site with them, I do not see the administrative panel and cannot perform editing of controls. The admin user operates as normal.

The site is on a Windows 2003 server with Network Service able to read and write on the App_Data folder. I've taken screenshots and made a quick page to display the issue, found here:

Has anyone encountered this issue? The site operates fine with the original admin, but not with any other created administrator.

Thanks in advance.

Okay,

I have found the reason why my test administrator does not work. You cannot use capital letters in the user name.

This also affects the extension made by Rayzor, found here (http://www.codeplex.com/MyWebPagesStarterKit/WorkItem/View.aspx?WorkItemId=12140) as I decided to try this extension to see if it would fix the issue. However, this seems to be a core issue.

new administrator can't see admin panel...

The above fix worked for me also. Users CANNOT have any capital letters in the user name.

Thanks for the input; I've been trying to figure out why I couldn't have another administrator of the site, too.
This definitely works.

Thanks!!

Somewhere in code there is a UserName.toLowerCase(). This causes the problem.

Happy hunting!
