I can set the connectionstring for the main project in the web.config but where do I set it for the login control?

The login control uses the membership system so you set the connection string for the membership provider you are using and then it will work.

Steve I've been a programmer for the last 15 years, this is my very first website and I feel like a dummy. Could you please break that down so a dummy could understand it. Thank you.

Hi mr41971, you will need to read up on ASP.Net Membership first of all there are tow types on login Forms and Windows you will be using Forms for the Login Control and there are many membership providers some store the user info and credentials in a database
ans some use active directory. the Login control uses the membership system to get the credentials authenticated. you just need to add a membership provider.
