Default Membership and Profile Providers - Mixing the Two

Hi There,

OK, I am eagerly beavering away on creating custom Providers to get our legacy platform working with the ASP.NET Provider Model.

Two of these are obviously the Membership and Profile Providers. My understanding of the two is that the "Membership" handles the authentication and user account management (at its lowest level) and the Profile handles information that is attached to a user (such as fave book, profile image, whatever).

Now, in our database, we have a Users table which stores the user account information, AS WELL AS some of the profile information. So, it looks like we need to handle a bit of both when creating a new user (i.e. we need to logon credentials, but also some information for the profile).

Now, the CreateUser method for the Membership Profile obviously only takes basic user credentials as input. Is there a way to process the Membership element alongside the profile elements when creating a new user? Can I have any thoughts/ideas on how this might be implemented?

I figure this must be a very common scenario, so must have been approached before, but a lot of the links I find on google just tend to re-hash the stuff on MSDN, which isnt helping me! :)

Many Thanks.

Rob
