    I think you you can use something like

    member m = new member(1234);
    foreach (var group in m.Groups){
    //Do something

    You can set a topic as solution only if you haven't voted it up yet. There should then also be a green icon next to the thumbs. If you allready voted up, the icon is gone and you can't set it as solution anymore. (They're aware of this and it will be fixed so I've heard)

    If you are using Umbraco 4 I would strongly recommend that you use the standard ASP.NET methods to get back the roles. For example you should do this:

    var roles = System.Web.Security.Roles.GetRolesForUser("user_name");

    This will then go via the umbraco.providers.members.MemberRoleProvider by default, or any custom ASP.NET role provider you choose to implement.

    Directly interacting with the Member API is no longer recommended.

    Hi Slace,

    Is there a similar approach to getting user properties? I currently use this membership provider because I want my users to click on an avtivation link I email to them. If they haven't activated themselves, then I don't want to validate them. When they click the link in the email a boolean property called Active is set.

    public class CustomMembershipProvider : umbraco.providers.members.UmbracoMembershipProvider
        public override bool ValidateUser(string username, string password)
            Member m =Member.GetMemberFromLoginAndEncodedPassword(username, EncodePassword(password));
            if (m == null)
                return false;
                    if (m.getProperty("active").Value.ToString() == "1")
                        return true;
                        return false;
                    return false;

    Could I validate the user using:

    bool validated = base.Validate(username, password);

    And then get the property from the
