Advanced Forms Authentication


Tonight I realised that with default forms authentication turned on, a linked css file (from a link tag in head) will not load on the login page before a user logs in, so the site has no css before the user logs in!!


right before the </configuration> in the web.config file add…

<location path=”myskin.css”>
<allow users=”*”>

replace myskin.css with any file you wish to grant unauthorised access to! 🙂

  2. THANK YOU FOR THIS !! Been breaking my head up about this. Spend a lot of time creating my CSS layout which did not work anymore with forms authentication…

  3. Thanks a million Tom! You saved my evening!
