Description of requirements/features: Currently have a basic asp.net site set up, registration works and I have set up all code to verify login credentials.. on login. However I cannot work out how to create the secure login cookie and then later access it to get details like if they are logged in, etc.

Literally looking for that last step.

This is what I have tried doing, but its not working for some reason.

if (common.verify(Password.Text, password))
if (activated == "N")
message = "Account has not been activated.";
FormsAuthentication.SetAuthCookie(Convert.ToString(userId), false);

FormsAuthenticationTicket ticket1 =
new FormsAuthenticationTicket(
1, // version
Convert.ToString(userId), // get username from the form
DateTime.Now, // issue time is now
DateTime.Now.AddHours(12), // expires in 10 minutes
"user"// cookie is not persistent
HttpCookie cookie1 = new HttpCookie(

FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage(Email.Text, true);

However I can't later access it via

YouAre.Text = User.Identity.Name;

Thats pretty much all I need to get working, as well as possibly showing how to do things like extend duration of cookie, etc.

New to ASP.NET, but not webdev - hence need for this.
