Simple question.  I have a ASP.NET 4 membership with visual basic.   When my users are authenicated I have them directed to default.aspx

I need a simple hyperlink or button on that when clicked or selected it will redirect them to a different page based on their
username.  Can some pleae let me know what I am doing wrong.  I am not sure what value to use to check who is logged in.

My code is attached
Protected Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        If Session("LoginName") = "Rick" Then
            Response.Redirect("Rick.aspx")

        Else
            Response.Redirect("default2.aspx")
        End If
    End Sub

I think you are missing ~/ . Try this:

Protected Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        If Session("LoginName") = "Rick" Then
            Response.Redirect("~/Rick.aspx")

        Else
            Response.Redirect("~/default2.aspx")
        End If
    End Sub

If you are using Membership then I assume you are using the Login Control. Then you can do this in your loggin page:
Protected Sub Login1_LoggedIn(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Login1.LoggedIn
        If Membership.ValidateUser(Login1.UserName, Login1.Password) Then
            If Login1.UserName = "Rick" Then
                Response.Redirect("~/Rick.aspx")
            Else
                Response.Redirect("~/default2.aspx")
            End If
        End If

    End Sub
