HI all,

I have tried to move the login link from the menu to the footer but nothing works. Heres what I tried:

  1. Moved the control markup to the footer => It still shows the login in the menu 
  2. So I deleted the login controls and put a link to the login page => logging in does not occur
  3. I set the controls to 'visible = false' and navigated to the login.aspx => leaves a menu divider in the menu and logging in gives an unknown error

I have searched the forums, no solution. I have searched the internet => old solution that n=do not apply or work.

What now?

What version of DNN are you using? What skin are you using?

Post the code that you moved so we can see what you did and hopefully help.

It should work by just removing the login section from header and adding it to footer section.
Check if you are looking at the accurate skin file or not. May be you can restart your application after change and check.
