LoginStatus control

I have a LoginStatus control on my site.

On logging out, on some pages, it will redirect like I want it to (those that require a user to be logged in) and on others it just refreshes the page. This is what I want.

What I want to know is "how do I add pages to the list of pages that require a user to be logged in?" On some of my newer pages it isn't redirecting them when it should. That is, they are supposed to be logged in to view that page.

I don't remember adding pages, it just seems to have known.

you can add pages that require an authentication using the web.config like this:
<!--SECURITY: USERS-->
    <location path="userprofile.aspx">
        <system.web>
            <authorization>
                <deny users="?"/>
                <allow users="*"/>
            </authorization>
        </system.web>
    </location>
<!--SECURITY: ADMINISTRATORS-->
    <location path="managecategories.aspx">
        <system.web>
            <authorization>
                <allow roles="Administrator" />
                <deny users="*"/>
            </authorization>
        </system.web>
    </location>

as for the redirection, you can do :
1. setting the NavigateUrl for the login control
2. using the function : this.Response.Redirect("shoppingcart.aspx", true);

hope it helps
