     Authenticates a user to make sure if they have previously logged into the site. Requires Session("UserID") to be populated. This usually represents the Users ID within a data base. (Users.UserID) If a user is not loged in, they are redirected to a page to attempt a login. This is useful when the ability to "Auto-Login" has been enabled to use previously saved login information in the users cookies. When a user is redirected to the login page, The URL they were attempting to view is passed along in the Query String along with the reason why they need to login. If the user was posting data to the protected page (perhaps a session timed out), then the previous page they were posting from is sent as the URL that the user is redirected to after they have successfully logged in. This is done to help reduce errors when visiting a page that expected posted form data.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com
