Default Authentication configuration

Hi there

In the Try-It-Out starting on p.619, the final 2 steps seem to be missing some instruction:

Step 9: "One of the accounts should be a member of the role Editors."
There isn't an option for assigning a role when creating a new account. The only way to do this seems to be via the Create or Manage Roles link under the initial page of the Security tab (i.e. figure 18-22). Is that correct?

Step 10: "Select the Admin folder to deny access to authenticated users, ..."
...there's no option for doing this.

Any ideas?

Many thanks

As soon as roles are enabled and created, you can assign roles on creating new accounts. This can be done either from the Roles link or from the account.
With step 10, you need to create the Admin folder before that. You can select any folder with the configuration of access rules.

Hope this helps.

Default Step 2 of Try It Out on Page 619

Sorry about adding onto this thread but I keep getting a page error when I try to add at the main page.

My question refers to step 2. I need further instruction please.
1 - Selecting Web directory in Solution Explorer; Is this just the EventRegistrationWeb solution?
2 - Regardless of any selection I make I never see Website->Add Folder->Regular Folder.
