This is the tool we have long waited from the ASP.NET Team. However, this time it came from Quality Data Corporation, it is the Membership Manager Control.
As you know the ASP.NET Configuration tool that ships with VS 2005 can be used locally to manage the membership of a website! Once the website is hosted remotely there is no way to manage your users/roles/etc…
What the MMC does is that, it mimics the local ASP.NET Configuration Tool, it allows you to:
- Add new users
- Delete users
- Update user records
- Manage Roles
- Search for your users by:
Above all it can be skinned so you can apply a skin to it and have a lovely interface! Every single piece of text that appears on the control can be changed and adapted to your preferences.
I believe the control is still at its beginning. It still has lots of stuff to be added to become richer and richer, and therefore we can promise ourselves with such a great control to use in order to make managing our websites an easy thing to do.
I advise you to check this control, download it for a trail version, use it, and then you know what you shall do ;)
Special thanks to Brian Mishler for this great control!
