.NET Forms Authentication Sub-directory

Greetings!

I have an web application that has been working great....  until now.  I've got a ton of pages that need to be secure using the forms authentication.

I've been adding;

<location path="editCompanyLogo.aspx"><system.web><authorization><deny users="?" />
                  </authorization></system.web></location>

for each page, but the problem is that that is getting a little too tedius....  so I know you can cause authentication for an entire directory, so I removed all the location tags, moved all the files that are for "members" into the /members directory,  and added the following

<authentication mode="Forms">
            <forms name=".members" path="/" loginUrl="login.aspx" protection="All" timeout="15" />
      </authentication>

Basically I want to restrict anonymous access to any aspx page inside the member/ directory which is a sub directory of my web app.

Who'd have thought it would be that easy...

Thanks man
You're welcome.  That's one of the tedious chores that ASP.NET has definitely made easier.
