Blog Entry: 3/25/2006 2:38:34 PM

While my host says the permissions are now correct....its still trying to download the setup ASP file instead of executing it.

I really need to get this application working asap too.  I noticed the purchasing page said that install came free.....so any help would reaallly be great.

 

re

,

We would like to use some of the variables from the user account in our web pages after they log in (something like, 'hello <user>"), but for professional printout reports using company name and user.

Could you offer some help as to what variable string we use to print that information on logged in pages?

By the way,  the program is working great!!!

cwilliams38446.6302083333,



Will purchasing an additional license resolve the issue which will allow another installation or is this a function of the application that it can only protect one site per server?,

Flash files cannot track clicks unless you edit the original flash file to link to the aspbanner system redirect URL.. feeding it the correct ID of the banner.

When that link is clicked on it will then track the click and redirect the user to the “link url” specified for that banner. 

The system actually generates the necessary ASPBanner URL for you. That link is shown on the banner edit screen.(you must save the banner at least once and come back to that screen to see the link though) 

Really the best way to show it is with an example as seen below.



Basically the flash banner file "powerasp.swf" highlighted in green needs to be edited to link to the banner redirect url which is highlighted in red.... the banner redirect url will then track the click and ultimately send the user to the Link_URL highligthed in blue.

All banners systems work this way when it comes to flash files.
It’s the nature of flash and the web browser, 

The flash source code must be edited to link to the redirect url in the ASPBanner system. There is no possible way any banner system can track a flash click unless the flash file links to the banner system 1st.... because that click is handled by Flash and the web browser. 

In some cases if you do have the original source file for the flash banner then you are out of luck as far as tracking clicks goes.



On a side note... if you create flash banners the way this article says you can actually feed a .swf flash file a link for it to click to. Instead of it being hardcoded.

http://www.macromedia.com/resources/richmedia/tracking/desig ners_guide/index.html

This is really the way everyone should design their flash banners from now on because the url it links to can be easily changed at any time without editing the flash file source code. 

cwilliams38085.095150463, How do I customize the validation email that is sent to users when they first register?,

Glad it worked

cwilliams38406.5549074074,

If you still cant see the upload buttons after checking the settings send me a PM with the info and I will take a look at your installation. It will have to be up on a live server of course.

Chris,

2Checkout.com has added to their required cart parameters:

https://www.2checkout.com/documentation/newparameters.html

Do you have a version of 2checkout2.asp that will support these?

Thanks,

Nick

It's just a generic error that means one of 1000 different things is wrong.. there is a lot of information on in in these forums as well as links to articles about it.

http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=27& PN=1

usually it means permissions to the database folder are incorrect or the physical path you are specifying for your dsn-less connection is invalid..

everything has to be perfect

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...

Hello,

Sorry
No, there is not.

not the way the code ships.. The program keeps tracks of everything by the way it ranames files. The system has been tested to work well with as many as 10,000 images files. Any more than that and you need something a little more serious meant for that amount of images.

You could certainly modify it do work that way if you are good with source code. There are actually as many drawbacks as doing doing it that way as there are advantages.
Take Care

 

, if you just see code then you do not have ASP and Web Server setup correctly.. Basic IIS Server Setup stuff and not something I cover, but there is plenty of info out there.

, 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 ,

cwilliams38413.5933680556,

cool.. let see if that works.  This was the command line that I had to enter in order for it to register.  Chris, as you stated before, you can try one of the other emailers, but you need a email server to tie to. 

"regsvr32 cdonts.dll"

Thanks.

What about browser caching ? It can happen easily especially if you update pictures over one another.

emtpy out the temp files of ie (take a while usually).. close all ie windows and go back..

Otherwise I need detailed info on the problem. What you told me is not enough to troubleshoot. There are so many factors like what image  image rezie component you are using, the size of the pictures before conversion, server resources, what your doing regarding 3 albums.... etc etc

I have imported 100 pics at a time into an album on a fast server with no issues. Thats using any of the image resizing components.

If an album is new what your describing should never happen. Again, it think what your seeing is browser caching playing tricks on you. We have anticaching things in place so thumbnails never do that but not for the large images.

cwilliams38235.5737615741,
Yeah, its working great witht he Access database. Now I just need to get it all set up. I like how the config file is set up with all the comments, it really helped allieviate the 40k thumbnails, .
 
One quick question though, and I haven't looked through all the code yet... Is there a quick way to have pic_window.asp open full screen by default? I just want to minimize having to either scroll through, or maximize, the screen
 
Thanks!!!

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

When did you download the ASPProtect Version 7 zip file ?

what did you enter as a wrong password to make that happen ?

does it it do it when other wrong passwords are entered ?

 

cwilliams38452.722037037,

It's not working because i guess im copying the viewstate also...and it comes up

Validation of viewstate MAC failed. If this application is hosted by a Web Farm or cluster, ensure that <machineKey> configuration specifies the same validationKey and validation algorithm. AutoGenerate cannot be used in a cluster.

LOL

If you need to know how to enable them on your test server.

thanks... a review at aspin is always appretiated ...no one ever seems to do a review and they help me out a lot.. the aspprotect admin area header has a link

thanks...

,

not really, aside from looking in paypal and manually adding each one for each user...

how many users are we talking about anyway ?

and were any of the users new sign ups from scratch because if they were and that field didnt get populated that is weird?

ultimately aspprotect does not use that field. I was just storing it for the sake of storing it... so its not a big deal but I would still like to figure out what is going on

removing the expiration dates from paypal subscripbers will be enough to fix the issue your having about them getting the expiration notifications

,

New Power Supply and a new (CPU Fan/Heat Sink) seemed to do the the trick. She's running like a champ now...

Hopefully it keeps doing so. Only time will tell.

It she's stable I can get back to designing some new software.

cwilliams38296.9772800926,

I pull that crap on myself once and a while... or my favorite is leaving a bootable CD in the drive and then wondering why the heck the OS doesn’t come back up. I pretty much promised myself back in 2002 that I would never mess with anything minor after 10PM. For whatever reason I always start messing around trying to "fix" something and end up sorry... Granted if it’s an emergency I am all for it, but I get dresses in advance anticipating the practically inevitable drive down to the datacenter.

 

Good luck with that, I am sure you will be much better off in the long run.

,

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, humm, I am curious

If these people are employees and sales reps why are are you using expiration dates at all ? and why the renewing issues... etc etc

I am sure there is a reason but you did not explain.

it might help me to better understand and possibly think about new features for new versions in the future.,

Hi,

I don't see any good reason to rename any of those files.

Changing them though may involve changes to the code recompiling, etc etc... it is not something I support.

,

Hi,

Actually that is not a feature at this time. Only the admin can add an image for user. If you look at the code for that you could adapt it for individual user use fairly easily provided you are decent with ASP.

That feature will probably be added some day, but there was no time to add it to into the current version and I can not give you a time on when it will be added. The complicated part is making some sort of approval process in case a user adds something undesirable and also limited file sizes which is hard to do without somesort of 3rd party uplaod component being involved.

,

Yup, it probably means the virtual directory is not configured as an Application in IIS.

You did put this in a plain folder in your web, correcct ?
Not a subweb

Regarding the application settings for the virtual directory.. if it is your server you set that stuff up in the IIS console.

If hosted somewhere it is there responsibility to have that set up correctly for you and you need to contact them and ask them what the deal is.

cwilliams38455.9035300926,

All of the fields with the expected paths show the correct file structure, so now I've put them in them in the boxes

, Not sure what you mean about the path to the IIS files being wierd...what else should it be?  The wf directory is the root of the aspprotect stuff for this project. 

I assume the permissions need to be read, write at least.  I was looking at the permissions dialog from a file explorer and I see a web sharing tab and a security tab.  I look at the security tab but I am not really sure which type of user I am looking for to add and give permissions to so that I can get it right.  Maybe that is not the right place to set the permissions....

Sorry to be "windows challenged" but I am not super familliar with all the different places to set various permissions for OS vs. IIS.  I looked in the "Internet Services Manager" and browsed to the logfiles directory and looked at its permissions...is that the place to set things up?  I see a "directory" and "Directory security" tabs...which is the important one?  I made sure "write" was checked and went to the directory security tab and enabled anonomous access....still no logs are showing up. Restarted server a bunch of times to make sure it took the permission settings.  I logged in and out correctly and incorrectly to see if a log would be generated but no luck.

The physical path to the logfiles directory is set correctly in the setup tab in aspprotect... sorry to still be baffled.

How do I know if the filesystem object is disabled on the server??  I can copy and paste things in there...

Thanks!!


,

no, there is not not.

If you wanted to to that you would have to add some code to check their album count in the database and not allow them to make a new album if they were at the limit.

Hi, I am glad you like the system.
Thx for the comments..

The banner logic in aspbanner it tweaked for speed and performance.. that sort of thing really wouldn't fit into the current code structure very well. It would slow things down and be a nightmare to code because of the way aspbanner uses ultra fast application variables for the banner rotation. Basically its a feature I didnt incorporate for performance and pricing reasons.

I would suggest making different zones for different conditions.. then surrounding the banner calling code with if else logic so a different baner zone was called under certain conditions.

That way performance would not be effected and you could actually show a different group of banners based on certain conditions.

Sorry, but that is the best advice I can offer at this time.

I built ASPBanner for performance and at this time I refuse to sacrifice that for any feature that will slow it down and consume more resources.

cwilliams38383.5395601852,

Chris.

After I had you install ASPProtect I added the ASP protecting code to the top of my home page:

<%@ LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" %>

<% CHECKFOR = "1" %>
<!--#INCLUDE FILE="../../check_user_inc.asp"-->

Then I made my index.html page my login page buy using the script "Login form on a non protected page" on that I changed <form method="POST" action="memberarea.asp"> to <form method="POST" action="home.html">. 

When I try to log on to that page I get en error page HTTP Error 405 - The HTTP verb used to access this page is not allowed. Internet Information Services (IIS). I checked with my hosting company GoDaddy.com and they informed me that due to the fact that they do not have ASPProtect instaled on there systems they can not support it.  In recent conversations you told me that you have customers that do use godaddy and you products. 

Can you please tell me what I can do to get this working?

Thank you for your time and help.




 

 

, now, even though it should work with two slashes or not... here is an updated file that will clear that issue up.

You can try it but I think you have other issues like I said above.

just replace this file in the "scripts" folder
