im new here and this is my first post, so hi everybody :)

i started with porting a wordpress theme to sharepoint CKS:EBE a week ago. even with having no experience with ASP prior, and little CSS knowledge, i've come quite far. so thanks for making EBE so user-friendly. now, ive finally run into 2 issues i cant solve myself

1st: if i click "sign in" (which is a link to authenticate.aspx), i will be logged in, but unlike standard sharepoint, the "sign in" link doesnt change to "welcome user" and presents me with "log out" or other options. it just stays "sign in". is that intentional, and if yes, how do i change it? if i at least had a variable like "IsBlogOwner" that holds if you're logged in, i think i could write something myself

2nd: if i use a "&" in a category name, the link to it will fail with a http 400 error

thanks for any help

okay, about the 1st issue, i found this post in which TheKid has already posted what you could call a solution: . i think i can draw something up with that information

edit: okay that worked like a charm. now i still need the code for logging out
