probably.. better than what we are accomplishing here LOL

or if you like send me the import file and your encrpytion key and I will try it out here and see what happens

either way PM me any sensitive info if any

 

,

this could go on forever...

if you want PM "private message" me info to log into your site.. show me the pages we are dealing with...

and I will take a look at it all...

Flash Code Generator

Until I have time to make one I suggest using the one on the banmanpro support site as it is pretty nice.

http://www.banmanpro.com/support/flashgenerator.asp

 

cwilliams38291.6146875,

... doesn't seem to be working on my site. I expect I did something wrong.

I've created some groups, "week", "month", and "year". Their IDS are 6, 5, and 4, respectivelty. When someone goes through the PayPal signup, he's assigned to one of those groups based on his subscription.

When I see a new subscriber and check the relevant group the person's supposed to be in, that person's not in that group. I'm adding them manually for now, but I'd sure like a solution for when I go to sleep...

My subscription code looks like this:

input type="hidden" name="custom" value="5,*4*,<% =User_ID %>

One-off code looks like this:

option selected value="7,4.95,1,*6*"

I've created the groups in my management console. Is there anywhere or anything else I'm missing?

, Seems as though changing the mail settings to "remote email server" did the trick.
,

I have been using ASPBanner for a while and am very pleased with it. Congratulations on a good product.

Only one feature is missing that would really help me and this is being able to display banners dependent on some condition (/aspbanner/aspbanner_inc.asp?BannerZone=6&condition=xxx ).

I think this would be a good idea as it would allow users to present adverts based on different criteria; for example; specific country/region related ads, ads based on time of day, ads based on user preferences, etc.

To achieve this I was thinking of adding a field to the database so that I can enter a set of comma delimited conditions for which the banner can be displayed.

I have looked through some of the asp code with the intention of seeing how easy it would be to implement the functionality. Not knowing the code however, I think that modifying it myself would be risky as I may inadvertently change things, which would have a negative effect.

Would adding this type of functionality in ASPBanner be of interest to you. If not, can you let me have your opinion as to whether this would be relatively simple change for me to do myself or would it be too risky and I should give up the idea. Any guidance or feedback would be appreciated.

Good Morning - I getting errors in my system log that says "404 file not found" for a number of files - Here are a few examples:

/aspprotect/password_admin/ drop1.gif
http://cidra.easycgi.com/ aspprotect/password_admin/edit.asp? User_ID=181
4 0.28%
/aspprotect/password_admin/ drop2.gif
http://cidra.easycgi.com/ aspprotect/password_admin/edit.asp? User_ID=181
4 0.28%
/aspprotect/password_admin/ left1.gif
http://cidra.easycgi.com/ aspprotect/password_admin/edit.asp? User_ID=181

I ideas on how to fix this?  Note: The system seems to be working fine, but I want my log files as clean as possible. 

Thanks.  shirley

Hello,

Yes, that is how it works. Unless you make modifications to the code there is no way to easily do what you are talking about.

If you design the site to be intelligent that scenario should never happen.

For example.. you should only be offering links to pages that the current logged in user has access to. You do this by checking the session variables and with simple if-else logic around your html links.

It requires some work but if you dont give them links to pages they dont have access to what you are talking about will not happen.

Here are some simple examples.

Here is an example using access levels.

<%
If Session("Access_Level") = "1"  Then
' show links to pages that allow access level 1
End If
%>

And one for groups..

<%
If Instr(Session("Groups"),"*6*") or Instr(Session("Groups"),"*7*") Then
' show links to pages that allow groups 6 and 7
End If
%>

cwilliams38354.0786921296,

I would say that it isn't all that difficult using mySQL for the backend....the main thing is to make sure you set the primary keys for auto-incrementing in your database.  Alos need to make sure that any DELETE SQL statements are formatted like this

DELETE FROM tblName WHERE tblField=SomeValue

and not

DELETE * FROM tblName WHERE tblField=SomeValue

The same holds true for using MSSQL

,

I will actually explain how to set access_levels and/or groups...

in "users/add_new_account.asp"

carefully edit with a text editor
find this part
 
CmdAddUser.Fields("Access_Level") = "4"
 
that is where the acess level gets set...
you can change the level or remove that line all together if you dont want one set
 
now for groups you would add this line in the same area
 
CmdAddUser.Fields("Groups") = "*3*"
 
or
 
CmdAddUser.Fields("Groups") = "*1*,*2*,*3*"

Groups access for a user is stored in one field in the database like you see above. If you are confused what you should be saving in that field I suggest simply setting a user to whatever groups you want via the admin area and then looking in the database to see what got saved in that field. It's pretty simple really how they are stored.

*1*,*5*,*9*

that user would be a member of groups 1,5, and 9
,
 
Thanks for the quick reply.
 
I will consider editing the code.
, If you are having trouble setting up a simple data connection ASPTest is a great learning tool.

You can download it from the www.CJWSoft.com website near the bottom. cwilliams38087.5457060185,
Hi,
 
I have a question re ASP Protect, I have got it up and running on a dev server which also hosts a e-com engine (ASP / Access), when users check out they are presented with the e-com log in screen (which is sharing the same ASPP_User table). All's well and registration and editing user details is fine both in the Admin section and the front end of ASP and if I request an email reminder from the ecom scripts I get back the encrypted password.  
 
I'm using <% = Session("Email") %> and <% = Session("Password") %> to populate the fields on the ecom log in page so users can click though and progress, the checkout process needs the username/password, all user info shows up ok, however, when I proceed with these credentials, it doesn't work, even though I know these to be correct and even without requesting a password reminder and using the one that gets me in everywhere else, I still can't get through? do I need some code re the crypto so the ecom can decode??
 
Any help would be great - I've been on it for about 10 hours, and checked through the posts here but can't fathom it out?
 
Thanks Craig

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 a few times.

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

The way to cure it is as follows.

Edit and save a banner in the system. Hopefully that gets things going again.

If this happens a lot it is a server issue, not ASPBanner's fault.

cwilliams38415.0978935185,

Not really sure how to do this.... i think you know what i am looking to do.. is there anyway you can show me or create that solution for me? It would prob. take you minutes as its been taking me hours

, Personally, I think that is something you should work into your existing site code or something you should handle on your own.

It's basic site maintenance issues.. and something every webmaster must deal with on an individual basis. If you are going to upload a new version of some large file of course you should go disable wherever people are dloading it from and then wait/re upload/turn things back on.. etc etc

It is not going to be a feature of ASPProtect and I don't see why it should be. If you want to have some sort of global site is temporaily down thing you should have a common server side include on all your pages right after the password protection include file. In that include file you could easily stop site access with a response.end and also show a message.

Or you should disable a file download page manually on a file to file basis.

Really, big busy sites that have their sh*t together use versions of files for a reason. Every new upload is a slightly new version revision and has a slightly different file name They do this partially to eliminate the problem your talking about and also because that is the way it should be done. Nothing gets uploaded over itself ever. Even if there is a mistake in a file they upload a new revision and document it in the revision/changes file. And of course they dont show users a link to a new file revisions until it is uploaded.
, Sorry, I can not provide a date..  I am last person that is organized enough to give any sort of release date on anything.

Could be next week, could be 2 years from now. I made two add-ons this week and they came out of no where. I had no plans to make them. etc etc.. they just happened.

If I told you 2 months from now I know it would not be done and you would be disappopinted so I am not saying anything. I will say if it turns out to be anything complex it will not be a free mod or it will be a feature of a new version.,

I'm using the groups protect feature on my pages. None of them seem to close the session after clicking 'logoff'. I can tell because if I hit the back button and return to the group-protected page, hit 'refresh', the page refreshes, I'm not asked to log in again.

On the other hand, when I open a page that's protected by an access level and click 'logoff' (uses same logoff asp file to logoff), it seems to work fine - if I go back a page and refresh, it asks me to log in.

Just wondering - is anybody else having problems like this? Maybe I screwed something up in the few adjustments I made a while back. Any idea what it might be?

,

Sorry, you cannot, that is how it works and that is how it has to work for reasons I am not going to try to explain as it is pretty technical. (it works the same way even when not using paypal and using email authentication... nearly every registration system out there does it that way under an email authentication scenario or a PayPal IPN thing.)

Basically, if you are concerned about it you need to periodically manually check for accounts that were never activated and delete them. Maybe when I get some time some day I will make a little interface to help find those and clean them up at once.

 

 

,

hello,

There is no built in option. You would have to add code to do that.
Its not difficult but custimization like that is not something I support.

,

I have ASPProtect up and running and I was able to log in with little to now problem after following all of the directions. 

I imported my data base of users (approx 5300) into the access db, and now it times out just letting me log in.

I've got full access to the web server to make any changes on that end that I need.

any ideas?

 

, it might.. I might be wrong though as I guess that could still be an issue with access not being able to keep up.. and then the xml parser just isnt getting the page it is requesting in time,

The pages in the ASProtect Full version that have emailing code in them are as follows.

password_admin/email_user.asp

password_admin/send_mass_email.asp

users/add_new_account.asp

users/email_password.asp

,

BTW.. I dont know what is going on But I keep getting all these returned emails. My forum is sending you emails and they are coming back as undeliverable saying your storage space is exceeded on your server.

, The webpage header for CJWSoft  states "Web Development for Win NT/2000 servers" - a little dated cause it works just fine on 2003 too, right? :),

There is nothing built in to the system but it is very doable.
However, you need to be a decent asp coder because your going to have to write some code.

Basically you would want to do a check on the screen where a user uploads to count how many pictures they have uploaded.

Then act accordinly and either let them or dont let them proceed.

 

On a side note the overall filesize limit of the total of all pictures a user can upload can be set when you edit a user.

 

, does emailing work at the simplest level.. ??

meaning does a user get an email when you send an email from the admin users screen ?

if emails are not sending it could very well be the setting you have chosen for emails in the settings.

the best thing to do is keep trying to send an email there and try different emails settings until you get something that works... even when I do installs for people I often have to try a lot of various things before I get emails to send.. like picking different components and trying different things for the email server address because what they tell me is often wrong

also, sometimes emails get sent but depending on where they go they may get deleted as spam.. aol, hotmail, msn, and yahoo are famous for that ,
I am sure its permissions as well, but I don't have that much access to the hosted server...lol.
 
I will use access for now, since it works fine, and try to talk with the hosting people later.
 
Thanks!
,

Is it actually possible, with your product, to password-protect the folder that has the actual database without having to require customers browsing the listings to enter a password, or will password-protecting the database folder prevent customers from browsing the classifeds listings?

,

Sorry Chris,

It didn't fix it.  Looks like I had the current code.  I bought the system in mid-April.  The version says 3-10-2005.

I do know that in the database, the password shows as " éG"  but in the error code, it shows as " éG".  The square character is missing. 

Thanks,
Mick

Edit: well heck.  It skips the square box here too.  The password in the database puts a square box in front of the éG

,

It almost seems like allow images is denied.  When I look at the ad it doesn't even show a place where the thumbnail or image would go:

Columns now are Ad Name/ Price / Expires / Hits

There used to be one before Ad Name.

Even unchecked (saved) and checked
Use_Picture_Upload < = value=True name=Use_Picture_Upload> Check this if you will be using the picture uploading feature.

 

 

, I have no idea to be honest, I just like the way it looks 

Good deal on the remote install, just dont pull the old "hangman" move shutdown the machine on yourself around 4AM. Otherwise you be getting in the car and going for a drive LOL

The Double DIM needs to be removed for this code to work properly.

I encountered a problem that I haven't been able to solve. I'm trying to get .pdf files to byte serve (page-by-page load in the browser) but unable to do so. I've narrowed it down to stream download file where it creates the header object. I haven't made any success with the changes I've tried. Any help would be very nice.

This maybe useful:

,

Sorry, not really.. not without a lot of changes to the code.
the recent activity info recycles.. it is not meant to be day by day

My suggestion there would be to look at both the log files and the user activty screens...

,

That carrot doesn't really exist in the file, so I'm not sure.

I did download and place the ASPTEST file in www.drsweisberg.com/asptest and when I try to load the 2 pages it fails to load.  I have another site on the same server and I uploaded the same exact set of files and the asp pages load.  www.klarman.com/asptest

http://www.drsweisberg.com/asptest/server_info.asp

http://www.klarman.com/asptest/server_info.asp

This is how I set the connection:

ConnectionString = "DBQ=D:\clients\rklarman\klarman\asptest\_database\asptest.m db;Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};UID=Admin;Password=temp"

ConnectionString = "DBQ=D:\clients\rklarman\drsweisberg\asptest\_database\aspte st.mdb;Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};UID=Admin;Password=temp"

, Did you ever figure out the process for VS2005?,

Thank you for the response to my question. In the mean time if I can figure any workaround I will post it here.

, Thank you!!

Yippee!

Laura
