I think it's well-established that the accounts/login feature that comes when you buy a license for VS 2010 Ultimate isn't really functionable. I mean, anyone who registers is accepted.
I'm looking for a normal portal -- where the end-user registers, I get an email with his information, and *I* can choose whether or not he/she gets access.
I've looked all over asp.net, other .net websites, google, and there is just nothing out there that works. I'm not a true programmer, but I can figure things out if given an open-source solution. I'd just think there HAS to be one somewhere on the web.
Can anybody point me in the right direction? I just want it so our employees can click the "employee login" link, and then have access to their own personal folder, where they can adjust their calendars, upload documents, and things like that. I shouldn't
be too difficult to implement, but I've been searching for weeks.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Well Jason, you might want to take a look at Dot Net Nuke Community which is open source and has the type of login system you mention.

Thank you bbcompent. I was under the impression that because my website is in Visual Studio 2010 / vb / .net 4.0, that I would not be able to integrate Dot Net Nuke into a /portal/ directory. Is this true?
Thank you for taking the time to respond!

Oh, you're using VB.NET? Yes, you are correct since DNN is based on C#. Let me do some digging around to see what I can come up with to help you out.

Actually, there is a way by using the existing membership controls. Remember that the insert command sets the active bit to 1, you could in your code set that bit to 0 when the user is being created by way of an update statement.

Then by using your admin console, you can activate the user so they can log on.

CreateUser(username, password, email, passwordQuestion, passwordAnswer, isApproved, MembershipCreateStatus)
Pretty much any of the code from the example can be fed through the C# to vb converter from telerik

Thank you for that information, bbcompent! So I guess Dot Net Nuke can be useful, but it's not necessary. And I do use Telerik, although there are always a few thins you have to figure out how to adjust.
I'll definitely look through this information, and once again, I sincerely appreciate your time and help in working with me on this!
