Force Login

Hi All,

I'm trying to set up a website so that to see any of it the user has to log in first. I've tried setting the LoginRequired field to true (in Config Settings->Netpoint) but it doesn't seem to have any effect. I've restarted IIS too. Do I need to do something else as well?

Cheers,

Joel

I have run into this before and i believe it is ASP.NET caching settings.

A quick way to force reload the theme and dump the memory is to navigate to Admin > Help > About Webtools then scroll to the bottom and click the links "Recache Theme and Strings" and "Clean Up Memory"

Hope this helps.

First, set the site to require login.

Second, set a theme on the users you wish to redirect to a new theme on the userdetails in the admin. Administration - Business Partners - Users - User info page - theme dropdown.

When a user goes to www.something.com they will see the default theme for that URL. Then after they login, they will be redirected to the new theme that you assigned to them.

When they return to the site, the new theme will be shown automatically, unless they clear their browser cookies.

Anyone who uses that users computer will then see this theme. If this is a problem, set the browser to automatically clear cookies after it is closed, so that the default theme will load each time they close and open their browser and return to the site.

Some users have complained about the last viewed theme being saved in the brower cookie in the past, I'm not sure why someone would share their desktop computer with someone they didnt trust, but maybe this was for a public computer, which I wouldn't use for viewing sensitive financial data. Regardless, that's how you can address this trivial issue.
