Blog Entry: 3/25/2006 1:38:45 PM

I am trying to find out where I can enter the ttle for the application.

There is a variableor field called App_Name into which it would be good to insert a generic name. Can this be edited?

I have searched high and low but cannot find anything to do with it.

,

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

,



Greetings:

I am doing the initial set-up and have run into a problem. Everything has gone smoothly up to and including pulling up the get_me_in.asp page. When I enter the "PasswordEncryptionKey", nothing happens. The page just sits there without doing anything and the browser says it's opening the page, but never does. I have tried entering the value with and without the double-quotes. The value is the correct one from the config_inc.asp file. I did a copy paste from the file twice to insure I transferred it correctly.

I am running Windows 2000 server.

What now?

, Along with being able to set an expiry date or number of impressions, is it possible to add another option for a banner to be "non-expiring"?

With our current ad software (which we are transferring all data from to ASPBanner), we run banners for both paid advertisers, and for our own services. The banners relating to our own services, we would like to set to "non-expiring" so they appear all the time. ,

User Registration

The "users" folder allows users to sign themselves up and edit there accounts as well as retrieve lost passwords..

In the settings tab of the ASPProtect admin area there are options for which fields are used and which are mandatory when a user signs up. The only validation the system performs by default is checking for mandatory status. If you want to add more validation so reduce the chances of input errors that is up to you.

You can add additional server side validation by doing server side checks on the save pages... you can also make the field sizes larger in the database if you think you need to. You'll need to be good with ASP to do this.

Always backup your files before making changes to them so that you can revert back to a working copy if you mess something up.

, YAY! I FOUND A BUG IN MY TESTING!!! Do I get a cool t-shirt or a coupon for Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream? 

Hehehe... seriously, thanks for digging deeper and spotting the error. You got some mad skillz and some excellent service, Mr. Cwilliams!
,

If logfiles do not get created it is most likely one of 3 things

  1. invalid physical path specified
  2. permisssions
  3. filesystem object is disabled on the server

that path doesn't look correct to me for a live professionally set up server but only you or your server admins can know that for sure

you will not get any errors when things arent perfect.. just no physical logs

RecentActiveUsers and RecentPageRequrests are not related to the stored logfile feature.. Recent Activity is a different thing

, I need more details... telling me you cant get it to work doesn't give me much to go on ,

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.

, A nice addition for the listing script would be if the script would allow a "featured ad" or ads that would appear on the default page. ,

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
, Send email to users that are soon to expire:
What Format should be used for dates and does international friendly dates affect the date as used by the reminder ?

Am having serious problems with renewal notices and expiration dates.

All member sign ups are for 1 yr., yet new members are being sent renewal notices.

Does Paypal use a different date system or has  does Paypal have nothing to do with Subscription dates?


,

Larry,

I have a new computer up and running and am back on the Internet full time. I am here to help when you are ready to continue with this.

I went to your site to look around and "try it" like you mentioned but I can not really try anything as the admin username/password seems to be something other than the default

,

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.

I have just purchased ASP v7 and loaded.  Followed instructions.  Obtained codes not prob.  Get to single field login screen, enter password and following page appears:

Method Not Allowed

The requested method POST is not allowed for the URL /temp/aspprotect/password_admin/get_me_in.asp.

Added folder aspprotect under (temp web) folder - temp, but also tried under root folder of web site.

Still no luck.


Apache/1.3.27 Server at www.didac.co.uk Port 80
,

((TITLE EDITED BY ADMIN))


it would be nice if there was an option for login abuse, where a login account would be flagged if it logged in from x number of different IPs over a period of time. I know many have dynamic IPs, but there's got to be a balance between legitimate logins and logins that are 'shared' for the sake of saving money (I sell subscriptions), in the end costing me.

Maybe searching the first two number groups in the IP (example, 209.168.*.*), and if finding more than an admin specified number of logins per week from IPs with different first two groups, the record would be flagged or locked...

 

,

need more info..

are you using aspimage to resize images and make true thumbnails..
(because if you have it turned on and it isnt actually installed on the server you will get broken thumbnails.)

what kind of images are you using ? gif or jpegs

are you uploading images over existing images ?

really need to know exactly what to do to reproduce the situation from scratch and then I can give you a better answer ??

 

cwilliams38348.7894097222,

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

How to bring up the Code Generators

Simply go to the zones screen.
Select a Zone from the list.
Check the "Show Banner Code" option.

Click on "Display Banners in Selected Zone"

,

(Password_Email_Confirmation_Mod) for ASPProtect Version 7.x

This will change the basic registration pages so that the email address and password entered must be confirmed when signing up. This eliminates the auto generated password during signup.

Some may prefer it working this way.

Directions:
Back up your existing ASPProtect installation.

Copy the two new files into your "users" folder

"register.asp"
"add_new_account.asp"

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.

 

, thats actually just the xml parser component barfing out on you.. it can't handle the load of being called so much on that server

you might want to try some of the other methods of calling banners,

UPDATE:  read whole thread..
Version has been delayed





These are my personal notes on the new version of ASP Photo Gallery that should be out sometime in May/June 2004. Please ingore any typos.

This version may be more expensive than the current pro version as this is a major re-write and there will be a ton of new features.

Regardless, special pricing will be offerered to existing users.

If you see any features not listed that you think would be nice please post them here. We will of course consider them.

 






ASP Photo Gallery Version 4

------------------------------------------------------------ --------------------------------------------

Finished Improvements:

new setup page makes setting up the data connection easier than ever
it attempts to determine the possible data paths and makes suggestions for what to try
when you finally get the data connection working it gives you a link to the admin area of the application
so you can get started using the application

all database table names can be specified in the config_inc.asp file for advanced users that they may need
to change the table names in the database.. helpful for sql installation where one sql database must be
shared by many applications

new data folder is the only folder that needs permissions set
before multiple folders needed permissions
now everything can be put in this folder... database,logfiles,configuration files,picture upload folders...
eventually all cjwsoft applications will do this allowing multiple cjwsoft applications to use that same folder
therefore making it easier than ever to setup more applications without asking your host to set more permissions

new text based config file makes it easier to add new options to the program without making changes to
the database structure... therefore the need for the configuration table in the database has been eliminated
this also reduces system resources needed to load the config data for each page because it eliminates calls to the
database for config data

added voice effects for data connection page, intro users page, and settings page

made it so ratings color was an option (red or blue)

fixed minor bug that wasn't showing fixed category heights when that was selected and am image wasn't originally sized that way during initial upload

changed logfiles dates so they always show up in the proper order 09 vs 9

added config option to change bit query value to 1 or -1
default it to 1.... this is a technical thing

added the extra options currently in the config file to the settings page so people do not have to manually edit that
file any longer...

added new persits email option and authentication options to the settings page

added new CDOSYS emailing option

added support for dundas emailer

added support for ASPSMARTMAIL

fixed word filter so if it is empty it doesn't mess up
also make editing it part of the main settings

made email functions include file and edited all page that email to use it

added css/style sheet support and removed a lot of the old font tags

seperated the settings page into sections because it was too big and confusing

added ability for text watermarking when using the ASPImage component

made the picture upload error message no longer mention browsers that do not support picture uploading
as that is confusing people... and the problem is never that anymore

Made the ASPImage test page delete the bar graph before creating it so if it is already there they will
not think it is working

added crystal ball feature to admin users screen... shows additional user info when you hold the mouse over it

Made search function highlight search word in results.
Made the search function search the image description text files as well

Eliminated the guestbook directory as there was no need for the guestbook to be in it's own directory. This also simplified the menu.asp file as the guestbook section could be removed.

------------------------------------------------------------ --------------------------------------------

Possible Improvements:

eventually make new and much better directions/documentation... html based for multiple reasons

Eliminate the need for parent paths to be enabled on the web server.
(THIS MAY NOT BE POSSIBLE)
Many hosting companies disabled parent paths and will not enable them for their users.
On Windows 2003 Server Parent Paths are disabled by default.

make it so users ability to upload pics can be optionally disabled

possibly make some of the special functions in the extras folder built in to the admin area

Make the category picture uploader smarter because of the jpg gif issue when reuploading cat icons
A jpg loaded over a gif.. doesn't delete the old gif graphic and vice versa

Reduce number of ".asp" pages in general.

Use more functions for redundant tasks.

Optimize all instances of the old filefound function which is using more resources than are necessary

option.explicit the entire application and get all the variables dimmed once and for all

possibly incorporate the new category system I am working on which allows for unlimited categories and levels
also simplifies the heck out of the pages that call the categories

possibly add some cool image manipulation functions such as rotation for the various image components supported

possibly add the ability to move pictures around in an album. and maybe between albums
I must also remember to move the ratings and desc as well for that image.

possibly add the ability to make individual pictures require approval

possibly add the streaming image ability (asp page called from image tag) I came up with as an option for
people that can use it. this will better secure images in password protected albums and also possibly make
it so images can only be viewed from certain urls.. and maybe make an interface for a list of allowed urls

improve the .net support to also resize the larger images.. currently it does not

possibly add a feature to store 3 versions of images uploaded
thumbnail, medium res, and high res/original
this will appeal to professionals or people that may want to sell prints
storing a large version will be optional

possible support for multimedia content other than gif and jpg images

fix... url to link to..   problem on control pics page when both a jpg and a gif are present... which also relates to a another slight
bug that needs to be taken care of

make interface in admin to listen to installed midi files
and also to upload / delete them

possibly make per album guestbook... or call it something else like disussion or comments

add option to store the images orginal name in the images description area during upload
may be helpful to people that name their images in a somewhat descriptive way

change approval settings so they work on a per user basis
eliminate access levels from edit user screen and get rid of the level 4 stuff mentioned
possibly add a per user option for individual pic approval as well if I get that feature implemented

add support for the ibulc bulk upload client that I recently discovered
it is very cool

cwilliams38325.8264583333, alternate databases are right here.. the documentation clearly links to this, its really not difficult to find

http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo164-1.htm, I have no idea.. perhaps PM me info on how to log into your site and reproduce the issue.,

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"

, If by permissions ou are reffering to the IUSR with write/execute
permissions, they are already set. I get this error when I hit the 'Create New
Export File From Current User Database' link:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a004c'

Path not found

/ASPProtect/password_admin/export.asp, line 76

Any other suggestions?, well, thats a network drive path and in my opinion a very poor way for them to have set things up. It can work as long as permissions get set there and they have the anonymous webserver accounts set up correctly to handle that scenario, but performance isn't the best because your accessing the access database over the network. Access databases are not just not meant to be connected to over the network in a web based scenario. Quality ASP hosting companies do not set up their servers that way and it can often be difficult to get things running as it is a more complex setup on their end. Meaning if they dont synchronize the IUSR_machine accounts correctly you'll have permission issues.

http://www.aspfaq.com/show.asp?id=2168 , You shouldn't be renaming or moving anything... unless you really really understand what you are doing and are at an expert level expert as far as ASP coding goes.

like I said earlier..
http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/code_info.asp?TID=354&ge t=last#1130

redirecting with version 6 is not supported but this thread tells you exactly how to set it up (I showed you this thread in an that earlier post)

http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/code_info.asp?TID=17&KW= redirect


This thread below may also help in case the page you want to start on with a login form should not be password protected..

http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo18-2.htm , if you are talking about IPN subscriptions and how they work paypal has detailed manauls on their site.. if you are talking about asp.net in general there are probably a lot of good books..

the reason I said look at the aspprotect 7 code is cause the applications and database are very similar and the same techniques will apply for the most part as far as how the ipn subscription posts from paypal talk to the database and what happens during the various post events.. etc etc etc , I believe that solved the problem as I have not heard from this person since I sent him the code.,

Help!.. I need to export the username and password fields to a mail merged letter so everyone knows their username and passwords. However whenever i access the database or do an export. The passwords showup as encrypted. Is there a way to access the list, un encrypted?

 

thanks

,
As I already had directories in my web site root called 'images' and 'templates' I loaded the files into a sub directory called 'aspprotect' as suggested in the installation guide where it say 'either way it really doesn't matter'.
 
However, it does.
 
The scripts are often looking for a file which it can't find because the /aspprotect part of the path is missing.  Example:
 
I can't find a way of editing all the scripts that need changing.  I'm assuming it would be easier to change my site to avoid using subdirectories used by aspprotect and reinstalling from scratch straight into the root directory.
 
Anyone with any suggestions?
 
Many thanks
 
Ian

You not getting a blank page.. you getting an error. You just can't see it because it appears you edited the page background to black.

error '80040211'

Hi Chris,

When I run the physical map test this is what I get:

The Physical path to this virtual website is: \\NAWINFS04\home\users\web\b2623\rh.vickery2004

Will that work correctly without a drive letter specified?

Thanks

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.

cwilliams38431.8787152778, How do I customize the validation email that is sent to users when they first register?,

Chris,

I've given the IUSR account modify access for the aspprotect folder.

In the ODBC manager module on the webserver I've taken out the aspprotect access driver option.

The dataconn_inc.asp line reads as

ConnectionString = "DBQ=D:\missourirealtor.org\members\aspprotect\data\database \ASPProtect_access2002.mdb;Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};UID=Admin;Password=temp"

Now this should make it DNS-less correct? with the permissions set properly?

I've also taken out the password on the access database.

The original database of users I had was an access database from a different program called spooky login.  I exported them into a tab delimited file and changed the column headings to match those in aspprotect exactly.  Actually access would not let me import them in the databases without them being exact.

I imported that information directly using access's import options.  I tried the import/export manager in aspprotect but kept timing out as well.
