I have a new site with a custom forms membership and role provider, and I need to allow anonymous users to visit the site (i.e. to browse around but not log in). This is a new SharePoint 2010 site running under claims authentication (obviously).
Problem I have is that despite allowing anonymous access in both central admin and site permissions, the user is auto redirected to the login page whenever they visit or try to move around the site. In fact, there seems to be a loop, as envisaged by the url below (for ease, I set the homepage to be the login page, as the login control is a web part on the homepage).
How do I configure a 2010 site to allow usage for anonymous users without forcing them to log in?
