Forms Based Authentication Filtered Content Editor for SharePoint

As you may know SharePoint can be made to work with Forms Based Authentication. While this eases the task of creating custom registration, Target Audiences won’t work with Forms Based Authentication. In my case the client wanted to be able to use the Content Editor Web Part to manage their own content and then make it accessible by authentication. Since Forms Based Authentication will not work with Target Audiences I wrote a Custom Content Editor Web Part that will filter content by FBA Role.
