Active Server Pages help tutorial how to ASP Help ASP Tutorials ASP Programming ASP Code - ASP Free CJWSoft ASPProtect ASPBanner ASPClassifieds



Blog Entry: 3/25/2006 2:36:38 PM

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

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

,



ok... glad ya figured it out.

Yes.. for ASP server side code to run the page extension must be ".asp". I was gonna mention that but I guess I just didnt think anyone would do that.

no offense.. not everyone works with this stuff every day..

Parent Paths ?

, Thanks and glad that fixed it.

You can review this software at
http://www.aspin.com/func/review?id=4952510

That being said, ASPIN has a lot of problems with anonymous reviews so if you can please sign up with them and post an Authentic review as they carry a lot more weight. Authentic reviews involve responding to their validation email so when doing so use a real email address that you regularly check.

And sorry I made you use the forums, but as you can see this is exactly the sort of thread that will help someone else later on.. and that is why I require people to use the forums now instead of just email support. That way the conversations are out in the open where they can help everyone instead of buried in my outlook where no one will ever see them. And of course if information is sensitive you can always do a Private Message as you did earlier.

It is all about creating a knowlegebase of valuable information.

,

I assume that if I am using this product, search engines such as Google cannot access and index my content. Can somebody confirm that; I want to be 100% sure.

In case it matters, I am using a basic, cheap ISP setup where my site is on a shared server.

Thanks in advance.

,

The version of aspbanner you have should not matter.

What you are doing here is wrong.

<PARAM NAME=movie VALUE=" http://www.innovationtools.com/aspbanner/aspbanner/banner_re direct.asp?Banner_ID=25">

PARAM NAME=movie is supposed to link to your ".swf" file.
And thats why all you see is black.

I don't think you quite understood all of that information fully.

Your ".swf" files needs to be coded in FLASH to link to the aspbanner redirect url. You don't change that flash calling code like that.

The ".swf" file links to the aspbanner redirect url which tracks the click and then redirects the user to the Link URL

You basically need to code your ".swf" flash file to go to that aspbanner URL or code your flash file so it can take a parameter for the url it clicks to (like the macromedia article talks about. This has to be done when editing the flash file in the flash editor before the file is saved.

If you dont have access to the original ".swf" to edit it and re-save it.. your out of luck as far as tracking clicks goes

,

This is what it says in that thread I pointed you to

This zip file contains 3 sets of alternate files depending on your situation. You simply replace your existing aspprotect v7.x files with these new ones.

I really dont see what is confusing about it. I think I explained it all in detail in that thread.

,

I purchased two site licenses for ASP Protect a while back and am now trying to implement the application.

The connection to the database is fine, because it recognizes the user and displays the user name.  However, there must be a problem with the permission because I get the DNS error information from the On Error in the check_user_inc.asp file.

I set the permissions on my PC as you indicated, both on the folder and the database file.  But get the error and cannot access the database to view or modify.  I also uploaded the file to my web server and set the permissions as well, but get the same problem.

You mention on your forum that it is not the code, but I don't understand if the code is correct and if it finds the database and the permissions have been set as you indicate, why doesn't the code work?

,

Hi,

Could you please advise what may be causing this error:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'

[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver]General error Unable to open registry key 'Temporary (volatile) Jet DSN for process 0x57a4 Thread 0x5474 DBC 0xf03a704 Jet'.

/ASPProtect/check_user_inc.asp, line 292

 

Funny thing is that if I refesh the page with the above error it gives me the following eror:

/ASPProtect/check_user_inc.asp, line 292

and after few times of refreshing the page it shows me the page I am after.

Is this my promlem or ISP's.

Thank you

, Has this been resolved ?,

I log all 404 errors on my site and since installing ASPBanner, I get a lot of the following error:

/aspbanner/edit_banner.asp?Banner_ID=11&User_ID=1 contains a broken link:

/aspbanner/right1.gif

ID changes and there are various missing links.  Some missing links include:

/aspbanner/drop2.gif
/aspbanner/left1.gif
/aspbanner/right2.gif
etc.

While not critical, these are filling up my error logs and it takes time for me to sort through them.

, We are using this photo gallery to manage galeries of all the prodcut lines we carry, we have no use for users to be able to sign up so i hid that part of the pages, what i am wondering is how can i hide the rest of the navigational links and still be able to get logged in to admin.   Here is a link to the unfinished demo site.

http://www.scs-cases.com/photogallery/ 
,

I did try to redit the banner and the old link was there, not the new one.  In addition I tried to ad a new banner to an account but it too was not saved.

 

Since I can see the banners from the aspbanner solution, does that not tell me that the solution is properly connected to the database?  The only thing is the solution only appears to be able to read the data and not write or delete it.

The settings for the directory are read write execute and delete so I am not sure what I need to do to get it working again

 

,

Sounds cool.. post info when you get it sorted out

thx

hopefully someday I'll get the new version finished.. I just never seem to have time. Lately ASPProtect takes up all my time and now aspclassifieds seems to be in need of a new version more so than asp photo gallery

 

, Hello,

I want to create a user for my manager. This user should be able to see all statistics (Reports) and all (Banners). But, he should not be able to edit anything.

How can I create the type of user described above?


Best regards,
Mohammad Al-Mohsin

,

no, its part the concurrent login checking system.

currently when that is on logging off does not come into play..
(pretty much because it is such a complex system I wasnt able to make it quite that intelligent this time around)

when concurrent login checking is enabled the only way to log in again at another system with the same username and with a different IP is to wait till that time period is over

sorry

as you may recall it was rush feature at the last moment before I got version 7 finished. Hopefully I can improve on the feature in the next version but I dont really see it as being a big issue at the moment. Sometimes when you want maximum security you have to make some tradeoffs and that is why the feature is optional.

here ya go

, 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 , Chris,

Ok new puzzle. I have now managed to gonfigure it to get the admin screen and update members. All excellent news. Seems to work a treat.

But have used the code you give in your getting started guide to add at the very top of an aspx page to be protected. The path is configured correctly I am sure. the aspx file is in the root, the protect program is in a folder now configured as an application (hence the steps forward to get to the admin screens) on the root, so address should be foldrname//protectpage.ascx.

Proble when I load that aspx page is as above. The exact same config error,oww!

I am sure its a setting on my server now, but I dont know what to ask for, Any ideas...

So close now!

Hi all

I logged in myself to my website, and I tried to log in to another with same username and password. But I was able to log in again.

It was supposed to block me from logging in, but it let me to log in.

there has got to be some configurations I must have missed.

Could you instruct me on this Concurrrent login so mine works as well...

thanks

 

,

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

,

I did a sign up.. your verify URL is not saved/set in the application variables.

try saving the admin settings page again.. or reboot the server so the settings get reloaded

if you can make sure the web is it's own application in IIS

if it is your server do and "iisreset" from the command prompt

if all else fails you got iis application issues with the site... wait till tommoro to see if the setting gets loaded

Protecting ASP Pages

To protect a page without using the Access_Level or Groups feature simply add this code to the top of that page.

Put this under the <%@ LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" %>

<!--#INCLUDE FILE="check_user_inc.asp"-->

This is an example of a File Server Side Include. You could also use a Virtual Server Side Include.

The following URL explains what Server Side Includes are.
http://www.powerasp.com/content/code-snippets/includes.asp

Now when someone runs that page they will prompted to login. They will not be allowed access to that page until they successfully logged in.

An example of doing this is provided in the "default.asp" file included in the root of the Password System.
Look at the source code with a text editor to see the working code. It is quite simple.


 Protecting ASP Pages Using Access Levels

To protect a page using the Access Level feature simply add this code to the top of that page.
You simply specify the Access Level before the include file is called. In this example we are protecting the page with Access Level 4.

Put this under the <%@ LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" %>

<% CHECKFOR = "4" %>
<!--#INCLUDE FILE="check_user_inc.asp"-->

This is an example of a File Server Side Include. You could also use a Virtual Server Side Include.

The following URL explains what Server Side Includes are.
http://www.powerasp.com/content/code-snippets/includes.asp

Now when someone runs that page they will prompted to login. They will not be allowed access to that page until they successfully logged in as a Level 4 user.

Examples of managing Access Levels are provided in the "multiple_access_levels" folder included in the root of the Password System.
Look at the source code of the ASP pages in that folder with a text editor to see the working code. Again, It is quite simple to follow.


Protecting ASP Pages Using Groups

Please see the code generators in the admin are for the code to do that.

cwilliams38403.6864351852,

umm.. rename the pages to ".asp"

After all these are ASP scripts we are dealing with and the product is called ASPProtect.

The web site says it is used to protect ".asp" pages

And the directions tell you to put the protection code on ".asp" pages.

ASP can not run in ".html" pages

If you do not know basic things like this you should really learn the basics of ASP before you try to use the application. I would suggest a good book or two. ASPProtect is for people that have at least some experience with Active Server Pages.

, I do not what is going on at this time. It is not a known issue.
If is is not working it would seem to be a problem with the application variables on the server possibly and your web.

Perhaps try installing it on a local machine and see if it works for testing sake.

Also.. if your stuck with the black skin you could always just edit the information in the that skins folder to get the app looking the way you want.

That and the header and footer files that comes with the app are what control the look of the system.
cwilliams38294.5880208333,

I am in process of upgrading from v6 to v7.  I have made database changes, can connect to database and get in to Administration area just fine.  However when I go to create a new user I get the following error

 

ADODB.Recordset error '800a0cc1'

Item cannot be found in the collection corresponding to the requested name or ordinal.

/password_admin/save.asp, line 227

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.

,

OK, I just spent like an hour in your site.. I almost gave up

1st off... I don't know what FTP Program/Settings or what OS you are using but all the ASP Protect Files had been reformatted in a odd way which was causing some issues and the database also had problems. Your somehow introducing all sorts of UNIX line breaks to all the files and the database was actually missing some crucial parts of itself and was corrupted. So I had to update everything which means a new database. I have never seen anything like it but I fixed it all. Its something you are doing but I do not know what. Maybe your unzipping method again ?


So to get back into the admin area...

admin
test

Now, the reason  the albums were not showing is because you are using the ole connection string which causes problems like that. However because you host has like the worst setup ever with that network path crap for the site that was the only connection string that would work for some reason.

I highly suggest a new host with a proper setup for running ASP. www.alentus.com
Your hosting companies setup is horrid as far as I am concerned.
Access Databases are not meant to be connected to via a network path.
http://www.aspfaq.com/show.asp?id=2168

Anyway, I rewrote some of the code because of the ole connection and got the albums showing up for you.. who knows what other problems that OLE connection may bring up in the future.. for now things I tested seem ok.

As for your broken image in the your header/footer...  You cant link to images and links using virtual pathing in those includes because the files are called from different directories and will work in some and not others

so when your in the root you see the image, when in a different folder you see a broken image

In other words.

link to

http://www.vickerylightning.com/gallery/vickery_template5_r2 _c1.jpg

not just

vickery_template5_r2_c1.jpg

The same goes for hyperlinks.. use the full url paths


Whatever you do...Back up the gallery folder with my changes before you go doing anything.

,

Suprising I started this tread off on ASPImage, but I resolved my issue and forgot to change the thread topic.  I will try your suggestion.

 

 

,

If the physical path isnt right and the permissions are not right it just plain will not work. You will not get an error.

If the filesystem object is disabled on the webserver it will not work either.
Something has to be wrong.

Please start a new thread when the topic changes.. thanks

It helps to keep the forums organized for other users in the future.

cwilliams38454.6146180556,

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.

 

 

,

The album ID thing is completely normal and by design. Once an ID in the database is used it can not be used again. That is how autonumber fields in a database work.

As far as not being able to delete images... Are you by chance using ASP.NET to show dynamic thumbnails... Because if you are you must turn that feature off and wait 20 minutes or so (maybe more) before you will be able to delete any of the images. It is because the current version of the ASP.NET script used to make the thumbnails locks the images on the server temporarily anytime it creates a thumbnail.

It is a known issue... and there is no fix at the moment other than what I told you above.

cwilliams38324.744525463, ok.. glad it is doing it's thing,

This is the 1st time anyone has ever told me they had any issues with the import process so I need more detailed information.

What upload component/method are you using ?
Are you using an image resizing component ?
Have permissions been set on the import folder ?

And lastly..
Can I see this happening ?

If not please put it on a live server where I can troubleshoot it for you.
Like we say on our site.

In some cases in order to receive proper tech support your application will be need to be installed on a live server on the Internet. We simply cannot troubleshoot all issues when the application is only installed on your local machine. We also may require access to your server in order to troubleshoot any issues.

 

cwilliams38394.7298263889, Can I suggest you have changed a code to stop this or you have a privacy software stopping your visits to add 1 to the counter. Has anyone tried to visit the album or just you. If you send me the link I can sus it out for you,

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/moreinfo11-1.htm

http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo136-1.htm

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

,

Access Database Password

By default all of the Access Databases we give out have a default password of "temp"

The Default username that and Access database uses is "Admin" but you should not be concerned with that except in your connection strings.

The default password for the Access Database can only be changed using Microsoft Access to do so. If you have security concerns it would make sense to change the password. The help system built into Microsoft Access best explains how to do that.

cwilliams38403.6820833333,

I have a solution for asp already but thanks anyway. Is there a good book or other learning tool I can purchase that you might know about? I would know where to start about how create a timed subscription in .NET.

,

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.
