yes, usernames and passwords are both case sensitive. It increases security.

, thats intertesting.. I have never heard of the concept until now..

I did a search for ASP examples or ASP components that can help with the process and just couldn't find anything about it.,



noted.

1.) this has been explored and because of the way groups works is not feasable. Because us this I wrote code to allow you to view and sort all users for any group on the actual groups page. You pick a groups and then click the "Show Users" button

2.) noted

,

Some users have reported an error during the registration process.
Here is what I believe is happening.

When you register you get sent a validation email that has a link in it that looks something like this.

http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum//activate.asp?ID=testAD3AD2 97BC

That link can only be clicked on once which will activate your account.

If you somehow run that link more than once you will get a message telling you there was an error.


I think some people are double clicking on the link they get sent and running it more than once.... or clicking on it again after registration is complete. It probably happens very fast so they never see the success screen.

Either way, if you can login to the forum nothing is wrong and you are already activated.

cwilliams38089.6248842593,

Thanks Chris.

Your solution worked!

[QUOTE=cwilliams]Humm, Did you make any changes to the code ?
Solid Black is not the default so it must have changed at least once.[/quote]

I did change the top_logo.gif and the associated link. That was on the default page not the Solid Black skin which is unchanged. After downloading/uploading the skins I tried changing it to one of the Beach skins and that's when it changed to Solid Black and has been stuck there ever since.

[quote]Otherwise it might be some sort of application variable problem.
I would make sure the web is and "application" in the IIS console.[/quote]I don't have access to the Microsoft IIS console as this is a host site. I can access the site's "control panel" but it does allow for those type of settings. Mostly just permissions, DSN entries, etc.

Thanks.

Thanks for your rapid responses, your support is excellent!

It may be best that I stick with html then. You mention that is stresses the Version 7 software, would the unlimited version perform any differently if I use multiple zones?

Also, if I do go with a single zone, would either program be able to make sure each banner is unique, or would there by duplicates for each page view?

Sorry to post so many questions in one day.

Regarding (ASP Photo Gallery Pro)

If you are looking to import a very, very, large number of images, the upload feature might not be sufficient for you. I have done some work using a unix terminal to be able to upload as many images as I would like by simply placing the images in the directory and renaming the images. There are other ways to rename the images, but I am very familiar with Linux, so I chose to do it this way. If you are running Linux, MacOS, or another Linux-based OS, you can simply pull up a terminal and run the following command in the appropriate directory. If you run Windows, I'd suggest CygWin, which creates a Linuxenvironment (Linux shell). It can be found at www.cygwin.com In order to be recognized by the ASP software, the images must be in the format of pic_"Album Number"_"Picture Number".jpg . Therefore, the following code is run to accomplish the file name change (on one line without wordwrap):

ls -1 DSC* |
sed 's/DSCN//g'
sed 's/.JPG//g' |
awk '{print "mv DSCN"$1".JPG pic_9_"$1".jpg"}'
This command will change all files beginning in "DSCN" to "pic_9_*Picture Number*".

This does have a slight problem however. If there is a large number of pictures, 0's become a problem. For example, if there are 200 pictures, picture 1 will show up as pic_9_001.jpg. This can be fixed by the following command, which will eliminate unneccesary 0's (All on one line once more):

ls -1 --color='never' pic_9_0*
|sed 's/_0/_/g'
|sed 's/pic_9_//g'
|sed 's/.jpg//g'
|awk '{print "mv pic_9_0"$1".JPG pic_9_"$1".JPG"}'

This command eliminates 1 zero. It should be run as many times as needed to eliminate all zero's.

Please Note: These commands will only show the resultant set (The list of picture names). In order to execute them, they must be output to a shell script using the ">" character as follows:

ls -1 DSC* |
sed 's/DSCN//g'
sed 's/.JPG//g' |
awk '{print "mv DSCN"$1".JPG pic_9_"$1".jpg"}' > temp.sh

Then, the shell script must be run using the following command:

sh temp.sh

This might take a few moments, depending on the amount of picture names that are being changed.

IMPORTANT: BACK UP all files before changing file names. Also, view the resultant sets to make sure it's what you want before outputting to a shell script.

If you have any questions, please feel free to post or e-mail me @ JPortnoy@checkernet.com

cwilliams38210.5703009259, I have found the alternate databases and they do not work either. I then went back and changed the database path in the asptest page to connect to the 2000 and 2002 test databases and it connected successfully to both of those databases, just as it had successfully connected to the asptest.mdb.,

Editing the look of the login page.

In this version editing the look of the login page is very easy.
You can make this login page look exactly like you web site if you like.

You want to edit the "scripts/login_form_inc.asp" file.

It can be edited with any editor as long as the existing bits of server side code in it and the login form remain in tact.

The best thing to do is back it up before you start editing it.
Then if you goof it up you can revert back to the original.

If you edit this page with FrontPage enable the "show all" feature.
Its the little PIE sign in your icons. It will show the server side code as yellow things on the screen so you know where they are and can be careful not to delete them.

see screenshot

cwilliams38448.8132638889,

I believe what happened is we received the older copy of ASP Banner iwht our purchase of ASP Protect and were notified of a free update to download aspbanner_unlimited_v8.2_feb_26_2005.zip which we did, and that's the one i recently put on our site.

  Sounds from your reply that something technical is going on to the point where I will have to hire one of our Web consutants to dissect for us.  We'll try again and track our issues and send another request for information when we can show you a specific example of what is happening.  I'll be in touch.

,

Here are three known bugs and their fixes...

 

If you have any of these symptoms these fixes will most likely take care of them.
If you don't have a symptom do not make any changes as you most likely have an updated copy of the application.

Technically if you bought that app on or after April 27th 2004 these bugs should all have been corrected.

 

 

Description Fix

(no descriptions showing in pop up window)

 

Edit pic_window.asp with a text editor

 

Change

 

Set f=fs.OpenTextFile(Server.MapPath("pictures/Album_ID_" & Album_ID & ".txt"), 1)

 

To

 

Set f=fs.OpenTextFile(Server.MapPath("../pictures/Album_ID_" & Album_ID & ".txt"), 1)

 

 

Slideshow Fix…

(last image in slideshow it not showing)

 

In slideshow.asp

 

Change

 

<% For PicArrayIndex = 0 To Ubound(PicArray) - 1 %>

 

To

 

<% For PicArrayIndex = 0 To Ubound(PicArray) %>

 

 

Add To Favorites fix

(add to favorites feature doesn’t work at all)

 

Edit "album_uppermenu_inc.asp" in the scripts folder

 

Change

 

<a href="users/favorite_albums.asp?Album_ID=<% =Album_ID %>"><img border="0" src="<% =application("skinpath") %>add_to_favorites.gif"></a>

 

To

 

<a href="users/favorite_albums.asp?Album_ID=<% =Album_ID %>&Action=Add_To_Favorites"><img border="0" src="<% =application("skinpath") %>add_to_favorites.gif"></a>

cwilliams38104.7034375,

Chris, I'm having problems getting this to work. When I plug in the redirect URL and then try to load the web page, the Flash ad never loads successfully - just its black background in the 468 x 60 space. Here's an example of what I'm seeing:

http://www.innovationtools.com/Articles/ArticleHeadlines.asp

Just keep refreshing the page until the black rectangle appears. And here is the code I've loaded for this flash ad:

<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
 codebase=" http://active.macromedia.com/flash2/cabs/swflash.cab#version =4,0,0,0" ID=banner WIDTH="468" HEIGHT="60">
 <PARAM NAME=movie VALUE=" http://www.innovationtools.com/aspbanner/aspbanner/banner_re direct.asp?Banner_ID=25">
 <PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high>
 <PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#000000>
 <embed src=" http://www.innovationtools.com/aspbanner/aspbanner/images/ba nners/mindmatters_innovation3.swf "

</OBJECT>

What am I doing wrong? By the way, I'm using the standard version of ASPBanner. Not sure of the version, but it dates from about 2002.

,

I have activated both activity and log files. The directories exist on my server and don't give any errors.

When I check the activity tab, some times there are a number of items in it.  Other times, there is only my login info.  From what I can see, it is supposed to show the last 50 items of activity at all times.  Am I missing something?

Also, when I click on the log file tab, there is no file or information to see.  Is there something I need to do beyond activating it in the settings area and making sure the directory has write permissions?

Thanks.

,

I wonder why the banners in ASPBanner 8.1 are moving from one place to another when opening my site www.helserevyen.no in a Mac Safari browser and click on refresh?

Can you take a look at my site and response?

,

My ISP uses ASPSmartMail. The email confirmation works except when I try to register an AOL user the server returns an error 500.

 

,

trust me, they (serverobjects) do not check processors.. as a matter of fact they haven't answered support emails for about 3 years. All they do is sell those components like hotcakes and take in mad crazy cash. But I will say the stuff does work well and always has. (that guy probably took all the money he made/makes from those components and took off to Jamaica or something sitting on the beach drinking margaritas)

regardless,
ASP just cant resize pictures on it's own.
It' just not possible. You need a 3rd Party component.

There isn't much to say about the ASP.NET thing.

If your server has ASP.NET installed (meaning you can run aspx pages on your server and the ASP.NET framework is installed) and running you just pick that option in the config file and ASP Photo Gallery will use ASP.NET to make dynamic thumbnails for you.

To run ASP.NET it must be a 2000 or 2003 server.

,

Christopher,

 

Thank you again Sir. Your quick responses and helpful demeanor add greatly to the value of your software.

,

Hi,

Ok, well... you have a lot of stuff going on there.

More importantly than that.. you cant even log into the admin area using the admin account. There is something majorly wrong with the installation.

I also notice you havent even saved any path settings in the settings page of the admin area. I am looking that over now and filling in the missing info. That information needs to be populated.

, Bingo! that did it.  Somehow the data must have gotten corrupted. 

Hopefully that will do for me. Seems like everything is humming along and looks great!

Thanks again,

Laura
, At the bottom of my "users" list page, it asks the question "number of users displayed per page"?  After hitting a larger number than the default of 1-25, it increases the number of users per page to that number.  But as soon as I leave that page, it goes back to the default.  Any thoughts?,

Hi,

Sorry, but the way the system works you can not call an individual banner like that. It just not something the system was meant to do.

If you wanted a specific banner to show up at all times you would have to make an individual banner and a zone just for that.

After looking at your site since you have so many banners there I dont know if that is the greatest option for you. It would also put a lot of stress of the Version 7 software because it is not really meant to call so many banners zones at one time on one page.

If you could live with tracking clicks on the home page but not displays I would suggest making banners for the home page in one zone. Then hard coding the banner images into your homepage like you already do but linking to the tracking part of aspbanner instead of where they would usually link to. That way you could at least track clicks and there owuld be no performance issues.

for example.. one of the images might link to
http://www.poconocommuter.com/aspbanner/banner_redirect.asp? Banner_ID=4

which would track clicks for you.. and then send then wherever they are supposed to go

,

All can say right now is take a break and get away from it for a bit. All your going to do is stress yourself out more if you keep working on it.

There is probably a way to make it work but it may require days of fiddling around and reading articles and trying things and even then you may not get it working AND THEN ITS JUST A BAD IDEA ANYWAY. Like John says you are better off running it on a server that is not a domain controller.

, Ok...thanks.,

Additional Information.

A set of these variables get created for every user that logs in to your site.
For performance and memory conservation reasons some of them can be turned off and are optional.

If you look in the "check_user_inc.asp" file or the "check_admin_inc.asp" file you will see a section of code like this


   ' Start of optional session variables to be set
   ' Recommended that you remark out any of the session variables below that you don't really need to use
   ' This will save a lot of server resource because every user logged in has a set of these
   
   ' I added some code here to not create these if they are empty
   If CmdCheckUser("First_Name") <> "" Then Session("First_Name") = CmdCheckUser("First_Name")
   If CmdCheckUser("Last_Name") <> "" Then Session("Last_Name") = CmdCheckUser("Last_Name")
   If CmdCheckUser("Company_Name") <> "" Then Session("Company_Name") = CmdCheckUser("Company_Name")
   If CmdCheckUser("Email") <> "" Then Session("Email") = CmdCheckUser("Email")
   If CmdCheckUser("Address") <> "" Then Session("Address") = CmdCheckUser("Address")
   If CmdCheckUser("City") <> "" Then Session("City") = CmdCheckUser("City")
   If CmdCheckUser("State_Province") <> "" Then Session("State_Province") = CmdCheckUser("State_Province")
   If CmdCheckUser("Zipcode_Postal_Code") <> "" Then Session("Zipcode_Postal_Code") = CmdCheckUser("Zipcode_Postal_Code")
   If CmdCheckUser("Phone") <> "" Then Session("Phone") = CmdCheckUser("Phone")
   If CmdCheckUser("Custom1") <> "" Then Session("Custom1") = CmdCheckUser("Custom1")
   If CmdCheckUser("Custom2") <> "" Then Session("Custom2") = CmdCheckUser("Custom2")
   If CmdCheckUser("Custom3") <> "" Then Session("Custom3") = CmdCheckUser("Custom3")
   If CmdCheckUser("Custom4") <> "" Then Session("Custom4") = CmdCheckUser("Custom4")
   If CmdCheckUser("Custom5") <> "" Then Session("Custom5") = CmdCheckUser("Custom5")
   If CmdCheckUser("Custom6") <> "" Then Session("Custom6") = CmdCheckUser("Custom6")
   
   ' End of optional session variables to be set

If you do not need a particular variable to be set as a session variable simply comment that line out with single quote.

If you have an extremely busy site with a lot of users this is a good idea. If not, you probably don't need to bother doing this. I added some code in there so they will not be created if they are empty and that alone helps out a lot.

cwilliams38419.5459606481,

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...

,

Some of our users complained that their users id and passwords are sent in the clear. So we decided to invest in an SSL certificate from Verisign. It has been tested fine with all forms and pages in ASPProtect version 6. The only remaining page which I am not sure how to protect is the home page. Let's say my home page is http://www.MyDomain.com/index.asp. When the user goes to this link he/she will be presented with the check_user_inc.asp page so he/she can enter their ID and PW. So how to make the login information send from this page thru HTTPS?

, I would like to delete the SQL tables and set them up from scratch using enterprise manager and sql query manager and see what happens

If that is ok with you let me know.

Something is wrong like I said...  almost seems like the database is caching old password info from the field.,

Three questions here:

1. I am having a problem with characters being displayed properly when viewing listings. Some alphabet characters and punctuation characters do not display properly when viewing the pages.

 

Sample here:

 

 

http://www.hibari2.com/lanoitanretni/kokusai_profiles/view_i tem.asp?Ad_ID=102&CatLevel=2&Cat1_ID=3&Cat2_ID=& amp; amp; amp; amp;Cat3_ID=&Cat4_ID=&FromSearch=True&SearchPage =%2Flanoitanretni%2Fkokusai%5Fprofiles%2Fdefault%2Easp%3FCat Level%3D2%26Cat1%5FID%3D3

 

 

In the access database I was looking at the properties for the ‘Ad_Custom’ fields. Unicode Compression is 'Yes' but IME Mode is set to 'No Control'. I wonder by changing this to ‘Hiragana’ if will solve the issue.

Note: the essays are typed in English on computer with Japanese OS, and then pasted up. Even though they are typed in English, there are several setting that may affect the output.

 

 

2. I want to reverse sort order for listings instead of listing 4, 5, 6, 7, I’d like to sort 7, 6, 5, 4… Could you tell me which page has to be edited, and in simplest terms what has to be changed?

 

3. Also, I’d like to increase the default display of ‘items per page’ from 25 to 100. Could you tell me which page has to be edited, and in simplest terms what has to be changed?

 

Thanks

 

HIBARI38155.8447569444,
Hi,
 
In my search for a product to administer my banners I came across ASPBanner. In my site: http://www.lovenest.co.il I have 3 locations for banners:
 
In the top section a big banner and a small banner
At the bottom a serie of 5 banners.
 
My question: is it possible to place a list of banners (let's say 8 banners) and randomally pull 5 banners each time the page loads?
 
If yes please explain in detail.
 
Thanks.
,

Hi,

 

I only just purchased the product and I would be very keen to

a) is the upgrade available very soon as I don't want to spend the time developing one and than find the other released shortly & 

b) would I only need to pay the difference for the upgrade or have I already downloaded the upgrade already.

I cant see what version I current have.

I look forward to your response.

ripcurlsurf38138.816099537, Is the user ID case sensetive? In my case I use the user email as the login ID.,

I have been working on this all night long. I have been reading every possible article. I have created an ODBC connection on the server.. which i have never done before? Still nothing. I looked at the machine.config file... i read about impersonating whatever the hell that is... I am really stressed out. I have the 1.1 framework installed.

I read about dsn and dsn-less connections. Is there another way i can connect to the database? Without using a username and pw maybe?

 

, ok, glad it is working, Once you have the LANGUAGE = VBSCRIPT and Checkfor = 1 on your page, you'll have it secured. I've got over 1600 pages secured in such a manner, thanks to ASPProtect! ,

The Pop-Up Javascript Date Pickers will only show up of your server's regional settings are set to one of two lCID values.

1033 which is English - United States
mm/dd/yyyy date format

or

2057 which is English - United Kingdom
dd/mm/yyyy date format

 

Many servers are set to run the default LCID which is 2048 so the banner system will not show the date pickers.

This setting can however be easily overwritten when using the ASPBanner system.

Edit the "config_inc.asp" file with a text editor.

Add this code between the <% and %> tags.
Near the top is good 

Session.LCID = 1033

or

Session.LCID = 2057

depending on what date format you are looking to use

Save the file and go edit a banner. The date pickers should be there now.

cwilliams38325.7403125, Did you ever figure out the process for VS2005?,

it is not uncommon for folder permissions to be lost or changed on a server.. a lot of things can cause it

if it was working and now you can not edit or write new data to the database it is most likely permissions

I would triple check permissions... see my articles if there is any doubt on how permissions are set
