Blog Entry: 3/25/2006 1:35:33 PM

Ok I used the following for the sql string.. is this correct?

SELECT COUNT(Album_ID) AS Alb_Count FROM " & tbl_label_albums & " WHERE (User_ID = " & CmdListUsers("User_ID") & " AND Album_Active = '-1'" & ")"

,

Hi,

I did some layout customizing on the register page on my site. ( http://www.lonestaricon.com/aspprotect/paypal_sub_signup/reg ister.asp)

Now when I tried to register, it seems like it goes to the next page, but it is blank.
( http://www.lonestaricon.com/aspprotect/paypal_sub_signup/add _new_account.asp)

If I log in under administration, it shows that I have registered. I can't seem to figure out what part of the code is wrong, so that the new account page will not load.

I'd would greatly appreciate any help with this.

Thanks,

Allison

Probably not... javascript calling complex javascript is not a good thing and is often a problem.

I would try one of the other methods such as the xml parser if possible.

,

When I attempt to upload, it appears that the image uploads. I get a "Original Image Size 0 X 0 pixels"

 

they don't appear in the web pages, any thoughts? I am using VBscript to upload, my host has safileup but I am unable to use it in this script, thanks for any help

http://mcintoshcounty.org/real_estate/extras/server_info.asp

here's the site link

Never mind, had the path to the image folder screwed up 

, I have ASPPhotoGallery installed. Everything has been working great for some time. Suddenly, for no apparent reason, I am not getting the "Hits" incremented when a user opens an album. It works when an administrator is logged on. Does not for any anonymous users. Everything else seems to work fine. Again, this used to work. Any ideas. ,

Yes, thatís all I wanted to know. The problem is on my end. The server is not creating the .NET site correctly. I think I got it working now. Thanks.

In case you wanted to know? The only reason I asked you is because you mentioned that you where having trouble with overseas piracy and my account is new. I figured it was my user error by just though Iíd ask you first. Hope you have no more piracy issues and have a good rest of the day.

Thanks again for the quick response.

,

I assume that if I am using this product, search engines such as Google cannot access and index my content. Can somebody confirm that; I want to be 100% sure.

In case it matters, I am using a basic, cheap ISP setup where my site is on a shared server.

Thanks in advance.

,

Gotcha.

Can you set an expiration date on a subscription?

Thanks,

Jess

lmao ... ya that has never happend to me before....

I would like to create a login form on the home page which will not be password protected to the site for members so that they can login right from the home page and not a password protected page like many sites have. And every portal I have seen.

Plus the login form looks really pretty and proffesional on the home page   ...

I can't find anything in the documentation that says how to do this or if it's even possible. Everything I have found says to password protect a page and then direct them there which isn't what I would like to do.

Here is the code of the login page which is an asp include file on the main page:

<html>

<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
</head>

<body>
                              <td><img src="images/a026.jpg" alt="" width="187" height="21"></td>

                                                                      <td><a href="#" class="link-02">Not registered?</a> </td>
                                                                  </tr>
                                                              </table>
                                                         </form></td>
                                                         <td><img src="images/spacer.gif" alt="" width="1" height="1"></td>
                                                   </tr>
                                                   <tr>
                                                         <td colspan="3"><a href="#"><img src="images/a027.jpg" alt="" width="180" height="15" border="0"></a></td>
                                                   </tr>
                                           </table></td>
                                       </tr>
                              </table></td>
</body>

</html>

Does anybody know what values I would put in the form to send the correct login to AspProtect. And, if I would have to add any extra includes or code to it.

TIA

,

If you bought ASPBanner Unlimited Version 7.3 Before August/01/2004 this file needs to be updated.

It fixes a bug where CODE type banners do not work correctly with a weight higher than 1.

Basically, blank banners will rotate and you will see nothing sometimes.

Copy this file into your ASPBanner folder over the existing file of the same name.

Got it working.  Embarrassed  Had purchased a long time ago and forgot about needing to run the userreg.exe.  All is well and thanks for the follow up.

There are 8 Access Levels by default.. they work like this.
http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=166& ; ; ;PN=1

Access Levels exist in ASPProtect Version 7 for backward compatibilty for customers using previous versions.

Truth is Groups are the replacement for Access Levels and they are much more powerful and flexible. You can also make as many of them as you want in the admin area.
http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=167& ; ; ;PN=1


On a side note:
We also coded ASPProtect Version 7 so there could technically be as many access levels as you wanted. It's not supported but if you really wanted more Access Levels you would carefully add more Access Levels to the drop down choices when you edit a user. "edit.asp"

I don't know why anyone would want to use Access Levels however when they can use Groups.

cwilliams38433.5546875,

We are emailing a weekly newsletter via the Newsletter feature.  Many clients complain that they are not receiving the newsletter.  The emails are not bouncing back indicating that they possibly are not being sent to begin with. 

Is there any way we can determine if ASP is making it through the entire database of subscribers?

, I am running into problems with the import function.  I have 25 photos loaded into the import folder.  The page see all of the photos.  But after I click on the import process it takes me Picture Manager with no pictures loaded.  I have hit the refresh button, but there is nothing there.  dr_bones38394.676412037,

Redirecting is not something ASPProtect does because you can
do that sort of thing using simple ASP redirects.


In all of these examples you are going to want to protect the pages you send these users to accordingly.
So that if they know the url they just cant go their directly without loging in.

 


Redirecting example..
This page will redirect admins or level 4 users to a certain page  and anyone else to
another page.
 
 
<%@ LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" %>
<!--#INCLUDE FILE="check_user_inc.asp"-->
 
<%
If Session("Admin") = "True" or Session("Access_Level") = "4"  Then
    Response.Redirect("sompage.asp")
Else
    Response.Redirect("someotherpage.asp")
End If
%>

 

 

Redirecting example..
This page will redirect level 1 users to a certain page. level 2 users to certain page, and anyone else to
another page.
 
 
<%@ LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" %>
<!--#INCLUDE FILE="check_user_inc.asp"-->
 
<%
If Session("Access_Level") = "1"  Then
    Response.Redirect("level1.asp")
ElseIf Session("Access_Level") = "2" Then
    Response.Redirect("level2.asp")
Else
    Response.Redirect("allothers.asp")
End If
%>

 

 

Redirecting example..
This page will redirect user "PistolPete" to a certain page.

 
<%@ LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" %>
<!--#INCLUDE FILE="check_user_inc.asp"-->
 
<%
If Session("Username") = "PistolPete" Then
    Response.Redirect("somedirectory/somepage.asp")
End If
%>


 
then just make sure the page you send the user to to also checks to see if the user is the right user.... to make sure others users can't access each others pages
 
<%
If Session("Username") <> "PistolPete" Then
    Response.Write("You do not have access to this page.")
    Response.End
End If
%>

 

 

etc etc etc.... these code snippets should point you in the right direction...

Is there any way to extend the limit multiple login feature to a certain number instead all or none?  In other words, i need to have a user be able to use the same login for x number of people.  My customers are institutions and want to be able to have a single login for however many users they purchase for.

,

pretty clever...

If anyone is interested in what the Mod function actually does this article explains it nicely. They even use it for the same purpose in the examples.

cwilliams38210.6791898148, >>1. What is telling paypal to return the info to the ipn.asp page for processing?  Is that something I have to set up in my paypal account?

Nevermind on this question.  I found the notify_url variable.  :-\

Thanks,
Michelle
,

I got ya. Well hey, that's what's great about the iframe right?

,

the menu file.. "menu.asp" or something... just follow the logic of the code to find things like that. Look for server side include files and what not in the source code.

This is a good article on figuring out what pages to edit as well as other things.
http://www.powerasp.com/content/hintstips/common_sense.asp

If it was working and you changed code you could have possible messed up how all of that works... you may need to revert back and be really careful as you make changes testing every step of the way.

cwilliams38308.0683449074, Will do! ,

Chris,

Another question on V7.  I set up all the paths as required for the extras like user pics and exports on my site.  They were working fine.  I created an export, then as you recommend, deleted the file on the site to ensure it doesn't get in the wrong hands.  I did this a few times to test it after a number of people logged in.

About 2 days later, I went to do it again and the system came back with an error saying the directory didn't exist.  I know it did because I created it and it worked fine.  I then created the directory again thinking I was losing it.

Then today, I went to do another export and the directory is gone again!  Can you help me understand why this might be happening?  I am the only one with FTP access to the site so there is no way that it could be someone else doing it.  The error I get is:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a004c'

Path not found

/password_admin/export.asp, line 78

 

Thanks,
Dave

, When using the paypal subscription feature with ASPProtect for a new user the expiration in ASPProtect is actually not used.  It is set to Null. This is because the PayPal system takes care of everything on their end.

So I can't see this happening because that field is not supposed to be used and the default PayPal subscription code we provide with the system does not populate that field.

Unless you populated the expiration date field on your own ?

Now that I re-read your post. The ASPProtect 6 reference was confusing me.

Now, if you have users that were never on a PayPal subscription that then sign up via PayPal subscriptiion that may indeed be a different story.
Is that what you are saying? I am looking at the code right now and it seems to me like it sets the expration date field to null on any new subscription activity regardless.

Let's forget about ASPProtect 6 as I don't think that matters. Please explain exactly when this happens and does not happen and exactly what sort of user we are talking and what their expiration dates are set at before they sign up for a paypal subscription.

Please be as detailed as possible so I really know what is going on ?,

I'lll try to look at it this weekend. I have to leave the office now.

There must be something wrong with the last build of the code. I dont think that upload export file thing is a feature too many people use or I would have heard of this sooner.

For now just upload you export files to the export folder manually using ftp or frontpage explorer and you can accomplish the same thing.

, I really can not support it because you made that modification and it probably directly relates to the issue your having.

There are many issues that can be caused when dealing with encryption. Sometimes the encrpted passwords can end up with problematic characters. etc etc Maybe the users are changing there passwords to ones that do that... after you fix them.. Its hard to say

I know as I had to sort things like out when I designed version 7 which has built in encrpytion.

It could be anything really.. since you made changes like you sorta need to figure out what is backfiring. There has to be a reason.

Chris ,

Hello,

In that version is is not easy to change the values as they were not intended to be edited. You would have to dig through quite a lot of code as those values are hardcoded in quite a few pages. Probably at least 10 or more.

In the pro version there are variables you can change that very easily as that is intended to be easily changed in that version.

,

Just having the database with members does not protect the page.  You need to add the appropriate code to every page you want to restrict access to.

You need to click on the Groups tab in Admin. 
Click on Generate PW protection code. 
Click on the basic button if you don't want to include levels or groups or choose a level or group(s) and click the appropriate button. 
Paste the code that's generated  into the top of an ASP page in code view.

Is that what you're looking for? 

Michelle

, Hi,

ok, I am a bit confused... you make it sound like as if you are running a different version than you were when you ordered this a couple/few weeks back... that confuses me because you were able to log in to the admin area of aspprotect.net before? weren't you ?

there have been no changes to the download or the version in quite some time ?

I guess I need more information to make any sort of guess at this point. I do not know enough.,

you not seeing the real error

upgrade pricing is here
http://www.aspbanner.com/purchase_unlimited_v8.1_classic_upg rade.asp

what is different
http://www.aspbanner.com/v8_notes.asp

the changes to make it work with MySQL were vast to say the least
more on that from an old thread
http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/code_info.asp?TID=37&PN= 1&TPN=1

just please remember use of MySQL is just not supported
http://www.aspbanner.com/mysql.htm

I can assure you it works well as I have people using it

,

ok,

when you say "we have set up to use the Subscription services exclusively for all new members "

I am sorry to have to ask this again but what does that mean exactly ?

how was that accomplished ?

The reason I say this is because when a subscription is created by a user through the normal channels.. meaning they went to the paypal subscription directory and either started a new account or found their old one to start a subscription with.. either way the PayPal Subscripber ID that paypal assigns is added to the database for that user and the expiration date is set to null.

Now, that being said the function that sends expiration emails to users will NEVER send an expiration to a user that has info in their PayPal Subscriber Field in the database. I just double checked that.

So that is where I am confused ? How did all these users get set up to use subscriptions and not have the PayPal Subscriber ID field popluated in the database ?

Seems to me the only way this could happen is if you set some stuff up manually and the PayPal Subscriber ID for each user never got put in the database. That and the expiration date didnt get set to null.

Again, I am sorry to keep asking this but it just seems to me that something else must be going on that I am not clear on regarding how you upgraded these people to use subscriptions.

In the end I think the answer may be to manually make sure each old user now using subscriptions has their PayPal Subscription ID set in the database as well as their expiration date from before set to null.

, question 2 is answered best here

http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/code_info.asp?TID=319&KW =paypal

Ok, got it.  Didn't know if there was something already set up for this that I was missing.


>>I should also mention that the paypals scenarios used in ASPProtect can not be tested using PayPal's sandbox.

Ok.  Thanks.


>>Also test using two real PayPal accounts and on a live setup. (You'll allowed two paypal accounts) then you can log into the other and refund the transctions and of course it makes sense to use low amount like 1 cent and what not.

Yeah, been messing around with that.  Got everything going except the return page which I can't do until the site is live. 


>>Also, I'd love to see what you came up with with the integration. I have been working on it here as well and took it in a different direction as I plan to sell directions for it as an add-on for aspprotect.

Ok.  Will email you with a username and password for access to the site once it's live. 

Sounds like a great add-on for ASPProtect!

Thanks!
Michelle

Hello,

Unfortuantely I can not help you much regarding the javascript because I am a server side code kinda guy. Client side javascript just isn't my thing. That was free javascript code that I used for that function. I really do not know enough about editing client javascript. Sounds like you might though.

Style 1 is really a relic left over from the standard version. I just left it in in case someone wanted to use it. Like I said because it is javascript making it do more than it does is tricky (at least for me)

Now,, for actually getting description code. The thing to do is check out how that all works in the pic_window.asp file which is what style 2 two uses. Bascially descriptions for an particular album get stored in one text file. We read that test file. Put the lines into an array. Then display the info which gets run through a functions to convert some special characters used when saving back to normal.

I tried to look at your site but it woulnt load for some reason.

 

cwilliams38420.0809259259,

Tell tell me some info about your install?

How am I supposed to know what is going on when you are not showing me what you have in your web config file and also the directory structure of the install or what you are putting in a page you are trying to protect ? It almost sounds like you are not editing the paths correctly in the various places.  I mean yes you told me something about the "map" folder but what I saying is tell me more detail.

BTW: this is a very important setting in the web.config file and must be edited accordingly so the path is right.

<forms name=".aspprotect~net" loginUrl="/aspprotectlogin.aspx" protection="All" timeout="60" path="/" />



Basically your showing me random errors and posts left and right and I honestly have no idea what your doing ?

Ulitmately though I am trying to help you in this situation like the web site says.

We offer tech support for installation of the base application purchased in it's native form. In some cases in order to receive proper tech support your application will be need to be installed on a live server on the Internet. We simply cannot troubleshoot all issues when the application is only installed on your local machine.

Meaning I am not going to keep this up if you keep asking question after question after question regardign your local XP Pro installation. There is only so much I can assume or guess when you are running this on a local development server. I know you got all sorts of problems getting a decent live server to run this on but that just isn't my problem. Get this up and running on a professionaly and correctly setup live server and when these random configuration errors pop up atl least I can go run the pages and look at them.
Right now I am just confused by nearly everything you have posted today. Half of looks like basic ASP.NET path issues that you need to sort of on your own based on where you installed the application on the machine and what you have in the web.config file.. etc etc etc

It is sounding more and more like ASP.NET is way over your head. If you want a copy of the classic ASP version of ASPProtect you are welcome to it. I think you will be a lotter better off sticking to classic ASP unless you really start reading up on ASP.NET and learning more about how forms based authentication and the web.config file work.

,

Hello..

I actually noticed something was up with your install earlier...
(I saw you in my log files when you clicked to cjwoft from the docs)

I need more info... like what uploading method your using.. what image resizing component, what widths yoru resizing things to... etc

have you tried it while telling it to delete the pics and also while not telling it not to delete them from the import folder

I might have to take a look tommoro as well to really figure it if that is ok

I have to go the bar to meet some friends so I wont be of much more help tonight :)

I been working steady all week and need a few.

, also, from looking at your site your ideal scenario would be a system that allows you to show all banners in one zone at any given time but in a different order.

ASPBanner is just not that sort of system. It is only designed to show one banner at a time from a given zone in random order.,

Banners no longer show up on my site ?

If banners were working fine and now they are just not showing up.
1st check to see that you are calling a valid zone with live banners in it.
If you are then most likely this it what hapened.

The web server must have crashed or lost power and now the application variables are in limbo/not working.

I have seen this happen 3 times. Twice on my own server when the power went out for 2 hours and once on a customers server.

Basically the application variable system gets all messed up because it was not shut down properlly.

The ways to possibly cure it are as follows.

 

Edit and save a banner in the system. Hopefully that gets things going again.
If not... keep reading for the more drastic cures..


Go to the command prompt on the server and type "iisreset"
Sometimes that is enough.

Reboot the server.
Sometimes that is enough.

Stop the web in the IIS console.
Sometimes that is enough.

Stop the individual processes for each web in iis
"you must really know what you doing and be very careful about doing this"

Remove and recreate new applications in IIS for the web in question.


And sometimes it just takes a combination of the things listed above and a few reboots. I don't know the best way to cure it but I do know why it happens and the steps listed above can get things back on track.

Again, this is because the server lost power or crashed as far as I know.
It was not allowed to shut down properly which sometimes happens.

You'll know things are ok again when you see your banners show up on your site.

cwilliams38295.0183101852,

ok... lets forget about all this redirecting business for a minute

when I go to "GP01.asp" directly via your web site I get a big nasty error that says this

Microsoft VBScript compilation error '800a0411'

Name redefined

/protect/config_inc.asp, line 15

Dim  Address_Required,CDONTS_Installed,City_Required,Registration _Type,VerifyURL,Log_Off_Page
----^ 








then when I look at what you did in that file I see why



you have this code which is totally wrong because you cannot include the password protection file twice
<%@ LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" %>
<!--#INCLUDE FILE="check_user_inc.asp"-->
<% GROUPACCESS = "*1*" %>
<!--#INCLUDE FILE="check_user_inc.asp"-->



 
it should be
<%@ LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" %>

<% GROUPACCESS = "*1*" %>
<!--#INCLUDE FILE="check_user_inc.asp"-->
and that is probably the root of this entire problem.. the redirection was working...
but you were sending them to invalid pages with errors

all those pages are wrong...
if you dont see the real error above see this
http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo11-1.htm


if you look over the aspprotect 7 installation instructions that is the very 1st thing I tell people to do


hopefully this is the info you need to continue and get some work done
