Actually it is already using sql server and populating user information for authentication from there. The grouping by permissions is also there but needs to be expanded upon. For the time being my task is to change the content displayed based upon the referrer, which is already being captured, for the new product my pass through preauthentication script is not currently working, my guess is that they are not using md5 authentication which the other division of the company is using, however I could be wrong about that it could just be located elsewhere in the other products userinformation - database, as a short term workaround I have it response->redirecting to a static page, which is context sensitive based upon a topic being returned by the query string all that currently displays is the relevant portion of the help file.
Users can also login to the site with their user information and that does work but doesn't map to my static page, its a generated page, using xml and xslt to display the content dependent on what xml files are present for that specific site, there are 55 or so old sites that work just fine this way, I need to change the content so some of the "generic" content for the old 55 sites don't come through in the "new" sites. I hope that made sense. I am thinking perhaps a Switch structure would work well here but I am not certain where I should put this switch, it needs to make the decision before it starts creating the page, problem is the original author was using many includes..so does it go in all the include files...and branch off to other subs instead of the originals?
