Blog Entry: 3/25/2006 1:38:46 PM

It's probably something I could do for you as a custom project if you are interesting in paying to have that work done, but it is probably not something that will be added to this version of aspbanner as it is in my opinion a feature more suited for a more expensive software package.

It is also difficult to get ASP code to do things on it's own. Scheduling something to run on the server or some other clever scenario is necessary and that usually means it would be unique to each persons setup.

I just installed the software, but I can't find any place where I can see when users logged in, can someone please tell me where I can do this?

Thanks

,



MSACCESS or SQL server ?,

thanks for posting this... Since "private" is the default setting from what I read and setting it to "public" cured the issue chances are leaving it at "public" is the way to go.

ALSO: since you are one the few people that has ever contributed anything helpful to the forums I am going to reward you with a free copy of the password expiration mod. I am sending you a PM with the download info.

You cant do it from initial lohin, but you can do it from the time of registration signup.

As for the emailing thing it is most likely an email sending issue more than a code problem. For example spam filters incorrectly grabiing those emails or something of that nature..

Best thing to do is try different things for emailing options until you get something that works. I suggest using CDOSYS with a real email server and using a valid email account for yourself at that email domain. SMTP authentication if necessary. This will ensure the emails sent have valid MX records and dont get treated as spam.

 

,

It's real easy actually if ya sniff around the source code.
ASP is so easy to (work with/edit) even if you dont know any code.


edit   "save.asp" with a text editor

change

If Request("First_Name") = "" Then
  ErrorMessage = ErrorMessage & Server.URLEncode("You must enter a First Name.\n\n")
End If

to

If Request("Company_Name") = "" Then
  ErrorMessage = ErrorMessage & Server.URLEncode("You must enter a Company Name.\n\n")
End If



From looking at that save code I dont see where Last_Name was required. The only name I saw required was a 1st name.

Also.. making the First_Name not required may break something somwhere else. I dont think it will but it might. You are warned.

cwilliams38326.5102662037, ok, I got it all sorted out for you and aspupload seems to be working now.

Basically they seem to have an odd version of it installed and I had to tweak the code a little. I also uploaded the server info page in the admin area to test for it.

Just back up the gallery folder so you have a backup copy of the modified code.

CJW ,

Also.. if you want to customize each person's experience individually it really does not make sense to use groups or access levels for that purpose alone.

I mean, why bother making a group or access level for every user and worrying about keeping track of it all when you can just access the available session info about the user to create dynamic pages specific to that user.

http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=198& ; ; ; ;PN=1

That is why that information is there.


You can of course use some combination of the two technologies as well should you have groups of users that you want to have a slightly different experience.

cwilliams38433.6259606481,

You should not have single quotes around the "-1" because Album_Active is not a string field in the database. It's true/false or bit field in the database depending on the database you are using (MSSQL or ACCESS)

I'd do it a little more like this I think.

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

I took out the parentheses as well since I dont believe they are needed in a simple case like this

but is hard to say unless your the one testing it... my version might have a mistake as I am a little rusty with my SQL at the moment

also: in case your wondering...
depending on the situation and the odbc drivers the 1 and -1 should work either way but sometimes it's picky and you have to do it one way or the other

cwilliams38433.0564930556,

I'll try to help when I get back tues night,, see the contact page for info on where I am

Hello,

I dont know exactly how you go about that and it would really depend on a lot of things like when the ad started and how yu wanted t handle that. it would involve custom coding though, not a change in the database.

,

yes, How can I have fixed size height and width image without distortion. Is there a component that I can use or how can I change the existing code.

 

 

 

yes, unless its ratio matches

how could it not be ?

Please keep questions like this in the forums... thx.
there is no need for this to be a private message

If I choose fixed width and height is the thumbnail image going to be distorted?

that is not possible unless you rewrite the code.

You onlyahve the two options we give in the config file for thumbnails

fixed width and height all the time

or

fixed width / dynamic height

Hi William

One more questions for you. is there a way to make sure that all the thumbnails are the same size without distorting the images (in the thumbnails). Or if a picture's height is bigger than its width is there to create the thumbnail such that the height of the orginal becomes the width of the thumbnails and vice versa.

Basically I just want the thumbnail pictures to be in a perfect row with all the picture heights the same and all the pic width the same.

Thanks

, If you are developing using Windows 2003 Server and running the NTFS file system setting proper permissions on a folder in your website is done like so.

using "my computer" browse to the folder in your web that you need to set permissions on.

Right click on that folder and then choose the "security" tab.

Give the "Internet Guest Account" Modify Permissions
This will check all the boxes under modify as well.

You can also give permissions to the everyone account and accomplish the same thing.



Other things to note:

If you are using ASP.NET you need to give permissions to an account called ASPNET. It wont show up in the user list. You'll need to click "add" and then type in "ASPNET"

In some cases you may want to go into the advanced tab and check both checkboxes shown in order to make sure the permissions you need get set. It really all depends on the situation.


cwilliams38342.7343981481,

I'm all set - after thinking about your replies - i checked a bit more and changed the email component type -- thanks again for all your help.

, I am out of the server now and I have to get up early to help friends pour concrete in a huge building in 20-30 degree weather (woo hoo)

So I am going to take a break on this until later tommoro.

In the mean time try connecting to the access database with no password on it as well as the access 97 version that I put in the data folder... and see if it runs any faster...screens like the user screen should load fast... not after 15 seconds of waiting like they seem to be doing right now

If none of that helps which it probably wont I can set up the database for you here including the importing later tommoro when I am done pouring concrete
, 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


,

Not a problem.  Have a good time at your wedding.

 

thanks!

,

Chris -

I am encountering a problem with items showing up.  When I click on a category and then select an item to view I get

THIS ITEM IS NO LONGER ACTIVE
DO NOT CONTACT THIS USER AS THIS ITEM HAS BEEN TURNED OFF
OR THE USER HAS SOLD THE ITEM.

I have verified the item has the item_active check.  For giggles, I even unchecked with the same results.

Thoughts?

,

I get this error, Any ideas?

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'

[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] '(unknown)' is not a valid path. Make sure that the path name is spelled correctly and that you are connected to the server on which the file resides.

/guestbook/save.asp, line 109

, Oh, to clarify the above.  We did not change any columns in your [Users] database or any other table., That helped very much.  Thank you.  Hope you enjoyed your dinner., Have tried doing that but same error... , ya it should have uploaded that no problem...

what about something blocking the use of the filesystem object and causing these timeouts ?

Your not running anything like Norton Script Blocker are you ?
Its part of Norton Antivirus or Internet Security and causes all sorts of problems with ASP when it is running on a server. Especailly when using the filesystem object to deal with text files and when uploading via pure asp.

It could be the cause of the all these problems or something like it ?

It will cause a timeout like your getting and give no real reason why.

More info on that.

Hi Chris,

 

Thank you for your prompt response.

Our current project requires alot of customization.

 

Yes, the error is probably a data problem and not due to your code, because we needed to make modifications to the database.  But that's why debugging would be helpful.

 

Basically our intent to modify the asp protect code stems from the fact that our client doesn’t want certain fields to be recorded or to appear: address, city, state, zip etc…

 

We are happy to be able to modify the HTML, but we also want to modify some other default behavior, such as which page opens when the "cancel" button is hit in the editaccountinfo.aspx page.

 

 

,

How can I make so it goes to certain webpages if user enters valid username and password??

I suppose user enters its information on check_user_inc.asp page, and username and password are stored on SQL database.

Thanks

 

,

yup. that is correct... they can't log in so they can't see any pages you protect

its the nature of forms based authetication

,

Hi. Chris.  I'm not a programmer of any sorts, so I am not comfortable plugging in the changes you suggested and not knowing for sure if it will "break something somewhere else".  If the programmer tells me "you have been warned", its a pretty good sign its a no win situation. If you don't know, theres no way i can know.

I saw in the code where you mentioned the changes. I don't see where it mentions the last name is required either, but the bottom line is it does require it it the actual new user form.

Thanks anyway Chris. I'll figure something out.

These are 4 valid examples of calling a flash movie.

The more simple examples may cause problems for people that don't have the flash plugin installed. I really do not know as I am no flash expert. All these work fine for me. Of course I have the latest flash plugin installed. Perhaps some of you can shed some light in this. The 3rd and 4rth examples are obviously only slightly different and mention different versions of flash as far as downloading the plugin goes.

cwilliams38089.6129513889, Thank you!  I thought that is what had to be done, just didn't want to miss out on a short cut if there was one.  Thanks again,

it's ok

one step at a time and at each step testing things.. then when you mess something up you can figure it out a lot easier

cwilliams38456.1106018519,

Thanks for the quick reply!

I was thinking it was an ASP config/install issue.

I usually deal with Linux/PHP, so this is all new to me :)

, How and where does one add countries/cities to the list so that they appear in the Drop-Down list that advertisers see when they are placing a new ad?,

Ok, I was not aware of this domain controller issue as I have never had a customer have their web server set up that way. It is not a common situation under commercial hosting, thats for sure.

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;3151 58

seems it was some sort of bug that was corrected in the the 1.1 .NET framework involving no ASPNET account being created. seems there are lots of work arounds involving making new accounts and editing machine config files. I found quite a few google articles as well.

http://www.kbalertz.com/kb_315158.aspx

http://www.15seconds.com/issue/030115.htm

I actually should have said "the framework installed" not "asp.net"

So, in the meantime I am asking John Evans what he thinks about this and I am going to ask you what version of the framework you have installed ? ASP.NET Framework 2.0 is the newest and you definetely should be running at least version 1.1 and probably should upgrade to 2.0.

I do not know why other ASP.NET code you have works ok. Your other code may not be using the odbc driver dll the same way ASPProtect.NET does. There are lots of possible reasons. At the end of the day I think the basic issue here is still a low level configuration/permissions issue and it can be corrected from what I am reading. It just may require a bit of trial and error regarding local and domain accounts and editing the machine config files... etc etc

,

Perfect exactly what I was looking for.

Thanks

,

Your actually confusing me with the whole "joe bloe" thing and user access. I just do not get what you are trying to tell me. Perhaps you can explain in a less confusing way. Your just not technically explaining it andand thats what I need to know to possibly help.

As for the subweb thing you just can not do that. Subwebs have their own sets of application and session variables. An ASPProtect installation and any pages you protect with it are required to be in the same "application" in IIS. Sicne subwebs have their own "applications" in IIS that won't work. It is the nature of "forms based authentication" A sub web is alo considered by our licensing to be a seperate web site and ASPProtect is licensed per web site.

As for breaking pages.. you really shouldnt be editing any pages in the admin area as you will break them unles you are very good with ASP. (does not sound like you are..no offense meant at all)

Pages in the "users" folder are less complex and it is usually ok to edit them carefully.
http://www.powerasp.com/content/hintstips/common_sense.asp

Pages of your own that you password protect can still be edited in your usualy way though without effecting anything.

Truth is if you back things up before you start editing how can you go wrong ? That's how you learn.

, and did you response.write that session value to see if it holds anything to ensure it is being set ,

The random password is generated during signup and the function that creates it is located on this page of code.

users/register.asp

it looks like this

Function RndStr(Length, UseChrs)
 If IsNull(UseChrs) OR (UseChrs = "") Then UseChrs = "
0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz!@#$%
^&*()_+=-"
 NewStr = ""
 Randomize(CByte(Left(Right(Time(),5),2)))
 For gpIndex = 1 To Length
  NewStr = NewStr & Mid(UseChrs, Int((Len(UseChrs)) * Rnd + 1), 1)
 Next
 RndStr = NewStr
End Function

For example go to this page and hit refresh and watch the password change.

http://www.aspprotect.com/demo2/users/register.asp

Yes, sometimes if you hit refresh quickly over and over you'll get the same password, but not generally. Also that is not something that would happen normally as a user isnt going to sit at that screen and hit refresh over and over.

Anyway... when signing up the new user of course has the option to change that password to something they would like better...


As far as... "selecting the same user name and password every time"

I need more information. That does not make sense for a lot of reasons.

Most importantly because usernames are not generated. The are inputed by the user during signup. They are then checked to ensure they do not already exist before the user is allowed to complete their signup.

So under normal circumstances there can never be duplicate usernames in the system or even users with duplicate emails as that is checked as well.

Now of course if you edited the code in any way it is possible all this is not working correctly ?

cwilliams38164.8059143519,

My hosting company uses ASPEMAIL - and I am trying to setup the mailing settings on ASPPROTECT - but cant seem to get it to work.   I've tried many different options - here are two that are the closest - but have issues:

1. If I use the settings:

email component: aspemail

Mail remote server: my internal server name

*no smtp authentication

email mail notification - my email address on my internal server

***I get the following results:

       I can get get notified when a new user logs in, email a user from aspprotect user screen if they are in my company and have a valid email -- but I can not send to the outside world - I get an relay prohibited error.

2. If i try to change the setting to use the Hosting Website email server - I get the following results:  I dont get notified when a new user registers, I cant send to internal company people - but I can send to the outside world.

**any suggestions on what to do? I'm trying to work with the people who manage the mail servers - but since I dont know anything about them - its a bit difficult.
