Chris -

Long time no talk, which is a good thing.  I have purchased another product from you, ASPVendor.  I am running into an issues.

When I try and remove the image through the image manager, it does not remove it.  Screen shot attached.

2005-10-19_194248_image_upload.zip

Thanks

,

It seems that if a user attempts to access a page that is not in their access level or they do not have the group permission they are redirected to the login page.  Re entering their ID generates an eror and they cannot go back to the pages they are alowed to access.  Is there a way for them to simply be blocked and return to the previous page or to a defined page so they can continue using the site?

thankyou 

,



Advertising ?? oh really.

It was named that because that way if you already have a login.aspx file for whatever reason it does not interfere which is a good thing. It has nothing to do with advertising.

Next off you never mentioned having an issue with it saying aspprotect in it. I am EXTREMELY clear about what I support and do not regarding ASPProtect.NET. If you are upset because I didn't tell you exactly what to edit and change in visual studio.net and hold your hand you are out of line. My god, I sent you to like the best and most detailed tutorial on how to setup and use the application with VS.NET that could ever exist. That took forever to put together. I even responded to your post on Christmas on a Sunday. I doubt too many companies would have responded on Christmas.

More importantly than that when you purchase code from CJWSoft you are purchasing digital source code and there are no refunds. Every single page in the CJWSoft family states that very cleary in the footer. I do not appretiate it when someone threatens a chargeback and as far as I am concerned anyone that does that is commiting a crime of theft. I also do not appretiate smart comments saying it's "obvious" etc etc

If you wanted to strike a nerve with me you did. If you want to commit a crime and be a thief that is your business as well. Obviously I can not stop that and the credit card company will take your side. I work very hard on the source code I sell and my policies on everything are VERY clear.

Advertising ??
Calling the credit card company ??
Obvious ??

nice, real nice

how you connecting... lets see the connection string...

could be permissions related too.. if they are not set correctly
(always give them to the folder, never just the mdb file)

Some of this might help...

http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo56-1.htm

you may want to download some of the different versions of the access database from the support area and try connecting to them as you may have older odbc drivers on the server

You may also want to try to get ASPTest from our website working before you go any further

, when did you puchase/download the application? you may have old code.,

No rush, I have it out on the internet, but have not gone live with the site yet.

Thanks for responding,

Enjoy your well deserved break

We want to insert a hyperlink i the mesage area when we e-mail users from the Password Admin area.  Is ther an easy way to insert the hyperlink so when the user gets the e-mail, they can just click on it and go the the page we want them to?

Thanks,

Andy

cwilliams38456.0983101852, no the "expected path" is something that gets generated for you if you have parent paths enabled. to help you fill things in correctly...

basically if parent paths are enabled it shows you what the path should be for each path field on the settings page... if parent paths are disabled there will be nothing to the right of expected path for technical reasons (lack of being able to do a "../../" to figure out the paths more or less)

in that case there is a file called "expected_paths" in the data folder that you can run to tell you the expected path info

Anyone have any experience configuring PhotoGallery to use a backend mySQL database?

The application connects successfully for Read operations, but no amount of troubleshooting can get it to Write records to the tables.

No luck...this is the message

Active Server Pages error 'ASP 0113'

The maximum amount of time for a script to execute was exceeded. You can change this limit by specifying a new value for the property Server.ScriptTimeout or by changing the value in the IIS administration tools.

It's custimization work. and just not something I can support.
Basically it is basic ASP/Database work.

Something you kind of need to figure out on your own. It's not difficult work for a good asp coder but there is no easy way and it is time comsuming.

I wouldn't use the custom fields though. I would make your own.
It's simpler that way.

cwilliams38437.0929282407,

question 2 is answered best here

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

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

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. I have it all working here but so far I dont see an easy way to let other people do it as I had to change things in both systems in a lot of places. Utimately if done under a SQL environment triggers should be used at the database level and that is another consideration.

 

,

I'll give it a shot loading it on the laptop and publishing it, if it doesn't work I'll let you know and you can take a look at it tomorrow afternoon.  Thanks for all the help tonight...

Good luck pouring that concrete!

, YAY FOR ASPPROTECT 7!!!

Now I need to know... how can I automate PayPal subscriptions and purchases? I'd like it so that once PayPal gets its money, my accounts get marked active.

Now, the documentation on this site currently says, to point the IPN post action to a null page. Yet, I see an IPN.asp in my files for PayPal subs and PayPal purchases...  Looking over the code there, I see actions to make accounts active and stuff like that. Is the page ready for prime time, or should I hold off for a new version?

Hi,

I need to be able to add about 9 checkboxes to the register.asp. would I be able to use one of the custom fields?

The other thing is once I add the checkboxes the value must be written to the DB and later read when displaying the person's Album.

Any idea on how I can do this.

Thanks

Hello Chris,

I have switched to Alentus and have the permissions set correctly and Parent paths turned on.  I cannot figure out how to connect to the database.  Should I have the database in the aspprotect/data/database folder, or in the data folder that Alentus has in my root directory?  once that is determined, how do I decide what the path to that database is?  I have tried many things, but this is what the setup page tells me to enter in the data_conn file DBQ=D:\Websites\www.mysite.com\aspprotect\data\database\ASPP rotect_access2002.mdb;Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};UID=Admin;Password=temp

Thank You

, That was it - Thanks!, CDOSYS is the way to go usually...
My article may shed some light on the different ways to send email using CDOSYS
http://www.powerasp.com/content/new/sending_email_cdosys.asp

As for eliminating the registration its pretty much like what you said.. manually remove the links and what not... etc etc and dont send users to the registration pages..

If you dont want people to be able to edit their info ever... or retrieve lost passwords.. you can delete the users folder completely..

though it's probably better to leave some of that stuff and just disable the registration links and page...

The paypal and 2checkout folders can be wiped out completley either way as you won't be using them at all.  ,

Hey, I run a business and I will not have things like that mentioned in these forums.

,

sorry, I am guilty of being very tired and didnt read your message fully.

I know this forum area is called "database connection issues" but it is only meant for generic issues.

Issues specific to a particular application need to go in that applications area in the forum. It keeps the forums more organized and helps other people fnd help later on.

So please post in the correct area.
I will answer this question soon. I have to do something 1st though.

,

ok, here is what is going on

you are password protecting an ".asp" page that requires querystring info to run correctly   (example - "somepage.asp?ID=3"")

that is something I never intended anyone to do.. while it does handle and repass the querystring info along during successful login it does not re-pass that info during a failed login as you have found out

this is all by design.. the only reason the system re-passes the querystring info at all is because I wanted to make it smart for the sake of the remember me/cookie feature.. so if someone was using that and bookmarked a page deep in your site with querstring info...then when they went back to that bookmark they would get authenticated and still see the page as intended with the querystring info in tact

it was a nice feature never intended to handle any situations other than what I just described...

now...
notice the url in the browser after failing a login.. then logging in successfully.. it is missing the querystring info

that more than anything is what is going on..  browser caching can cause some confusion when dealing with this because the browser likes to return you to the page minus the querstring info... when that happens a simple browser refresh at that time may very well solve the problem and then you see the page you are supposed to see...

To avoid all of this...

One solution to this is to always start people logging in to an ".asp" page that has no querystring info. That way this won't happen. Once they are logged in you can then offer them links to the pages they need to go to. (you of course still want to password protect those pages)

Another solution is to log them into a page with no querystring info and then do a response.redirect to the page with quersytring info.. thus accomplishing the same thing but without the possibility of the issue because of a failed login.

Another solutions is to do checks in your asp page for missing querstring info.. and if it isn't there do something about it like send them somewhere else.. or display a message about there being an error... etc etc

So,basically you don't want to tell people to login into such and such page with querstring info... and providing a username and password..... You can do it but like you found out it can cause an error if they mess up logging in the 1st time. The system just was not designed to handle that. There are complex reasons for that involving security that would just take me too long to explain.

I hope this makes some sense to you.. it is very hard to try and explain

,

that is because passwords in the import/export files are encrypted.. if you make one of your own you need to use the rc4 function in the "config_inc.asp" to encrpyt your passwords just like the aspprotect system does (requires knowledge of vbscript and integration into your export system)

now, there is a way around this

if you want to import a file you made with clear text passwords edit "import.asp" beforehand and change

 If UserArray2(5) <> "" Then CmdAddUsers.Fields("Password") = UserArray2(5)

to

 If UserArray2(5) <> "" Then CmdAddUsers.Fields("Password") = RC4(UserArray2(5), PasswordEncryptionKey)

that way it should convert your clear text passwords to encrypted while it does the import

this post also addresses this but in the reverse scenario
http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/code_info.asp?TID=261&PN =1&TPN=1

I hope this helps you because I really do have to leave the office like right now. Very late for a dinner meeting.

I should be back on the computer later tonight or tommoro morning

I'am in the process of modifing registration and tieing in paypal. When I get live I will send you a link. Thanks for help.

,

I was told by my ISP to use localhost and it should work and it does not. It does not require authentication to send e-mails.

Any other ideas?

 

 

Thanks

,

I do not think it it anything to do with the Application.

You most likely have some sort of ad blocking software that is doing it.

It is seeing the word "banner" or "ad" and blocking the images in your browser.

I doubt it is anything built into xp doing it. XP with SP2 has built in pop-up blockers but no ad blockers like that really. It is norton ad blocker or something of that nature.

,

basically one at a time because of limitations of the file uploads that browsers can support 

more on that here
http://www.aspphotogallery.com/pro_add_ons.asp


An Admins can however ftp a bunch of pics to the import folder and import them into any album all at once pretty easily

 

, I just remembered the current skin is stored in a text file in the pictures folder. If it did not have permissions for writing it could give you trouble.  That could of had something to do with it.cwilliams38295.3821064815,

humm

expiration dates in the aspprotect system are not used at all when using paypal subscriptions.. all date handling is done on their end actually

and they of course send notices from their system to the user regarding their subscription and when it renews,cancels, etc etc

so I am pretty sure any errors with that would have more to do with the info you used for the subscription setup and possibly any paypal settings associated with it

its hard to say at this point

The smart thing to do I think.. would be to sign up someone using another PayPal account (your allowed 2)... and while doing it be very careful about the subscription setup data.. and then as soon as the subscription is created review all the info in the paypal system and see if the length of the subscription / expiration.. etc etc in the paypal system info looks right..

at least then you can begin to troubleshoot what is going on...

,

Hi,

I have just one quick question, I know this works with Paypal but does this work with Merchant Account?

How difficult it is to make it workable with Merchant account? I appreciate your answer.

Thanks.

 

 

 

,

No worries

then..

is there any way I can get rid of those information shown on User activity screen, so I can at least know who logged in current day?

thank you in advance

,

actually  I just went to it again and it was somewhat slow coming up this time..

perhaps you have some issues with the sql database.

it should be instant.. like this one I run on my server
http://banserver.powerasp.com/aspbanner/

I suppose it could also have something to do with sql server resources but its hard to say..

, How about the option to add an unsubscribe link to the end of newsletters that are sent out and a function that will uncheck the newletter field for that record if they click on the link?

Please??? 

Thanks,
Michelle  , Chris,

D'oh! How completely obvious!

I got it now. (In Step 4, by the way, you need to click on the web site, not the directory. The directory has its own Properties menu, which is competely different than the Properties menu for the web site.)

 Thanks for the fast response!

,

Your SQL statement to the database is the key.

You want to change the sortby hyperlink on that page so that it will in turn change the dynamic sql statement to sort the way you want

Find

?SORTBY=Date_Created

change it to

?SORTBY=Date_Created+ASC

or maybe

?SORTBY=Date_Created+DESC


One of them is the default anyway, but I cant remember which is which off hand so just try them both till you get the desired result

 

near the top you can also change the default sortby when thet page is loaded

SORTBY = Request("SORTBY")
If SORTBY = "" Then
 SORTBY = "Name"
End If

there you would use a space though.. not a "+" sign when adding the ASC or DESC

The + sign is only used in the hyperlinks because it means a space for browsers that can't deal with spaces in links

cwilliams38406.6011458333,

I have narrowed it down.  The ../ for includes will not work with .asp files but will work in .shtml files.

any ideas?

,

This is amazing. You replied to question within minutes. Thanks for showing such a professionalism.

 

,
Actually, I think I just found my answer...
 
I will take out the StrToFix = Replace(StrToFix," ","&nbsp;") bit of code and see what happens...

A very common and extremely bothersome error encountered when running ASP apps that connect to a database is the "80004005" error. It comes in many varieties.

These articles cover it.
