Any suggestions?

Thanks

Hi

ASPBanner is great...

I have a little problem I have a ASP site http://www.bythebeach.com.au/

I understand how Zones (location on a pages) works but i need only to display those banners that pertain only to that catorgries or sub catorgries.

How would i do that would ....  Would i have to add a new field in the database...?

Any help would be greatly apprecaited

I had both ASP Listings & Classified on the same website.  The categories seem to be getting mixed up. I removed ASP Classified but classfieds categories is still appearing in the student of ASP Listing.

How do I fix this?

Thanks

,

no, you cannot unless you plan to write a lot of custom code.

That is why the option pack has groups which eliminate the need to use access levels because groups can do everything access levels can and more.

There is an article here regarding that.

cwilliams38303.5555439815,

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

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, My server is Server2003.  I could not find the folder settings you mentioned.  I did find a iuser which I added as specified.  I retried to perform an upload.   Still same message.  But it does move the JPG to the picture folder.  So, part of it is working. ,

all I can say is try other things...  like

mail.yoursite.com

or

smtp.yoursite.com

etc etc etc

replacing yoursite with the name of your domain of course


the settings for sending email via ASP are no different then the settings you would use in outlook or something... except sometimes on the server level localhost works as the email server because they set it up to allow that

and of course those 3rd party emailing components need to actually be installed on the server

, sounds like the data/export folde does not have permissions,

Let me put it this way.

My home page (default.asp) is an unprotected page.

When a user that has signed in on another (protected pages) and has the remember me checkbox checked closes the browser cookies should be set for the next time they return.

When the user opens their browser and returns  to my home page (default.asp), I'd like to put a message saying:
Welcome back <%Session ("Username")%>

How is this done?

Good Morning, any suggestions on how to best "fake out the system" -- I would like to try to keep this clean so I can see the real errors?

My thought was to try to just move those .gif files to the directory that it thinks it should be in -- do you have any better suggestions? Or reasons why I really wouldnt want to do that?

,

1st: try it with a normal dsn-less connection like we show in the example.. dont use that OLEDB.4.0 connection string.. connecting like that can cause a lot of problems and is not as great as everyone thinks it is and it can sometimes be difficult to get it working when the database has a password set on it

For the sake of troubleshooting just connect like so: (fixing the path of course)

ConnectionString = "DBQ=C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\aspprotect\data\database\ASPProtect_ access2002.mdb;Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};UID=Admin;Password=temp"

ASPProtect will generate the actual connection string you should use when you run this page

http://www.mysite.com/data/setup_info.asp

Replacing the part in blue with your website info.


2nd: any IIS server setup to have the access database over the network path like that has a poor setup... and that can cause all sorts of problems as well, access is not designed to run over the network like that.. for more on that read this thread -  Start 5 posts down
http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/code_info.asp?TID=479&KW =OLEDB%2E4%2E0

3rd: If the app does not run using the connection string like I say to use then the problem is 100% on their end and is either related to permissions or the fact they are keeping the access database on a network path which is BAD BAD BAD... no quality host that knew what they are doing would set it up that way.. ultimately you don't want to host asp with a place that has a setup like that

4th: If you want to try some other stuff out we have a free guestbook, asptest, and a free version of aspbanner you can try out as well... www.cjwsoft.com

5th: If you need a quality asp host that knows what they are doing and offers great asp support www.alentus.com is the place

6th: Your right, it is not the code, its the data connection

,

After I approve someone's username and password, then go to send them the default e mail telling them of the approval, the e mail never goes through.  The e mailing used to work well for many months, but it stopped working.  Any thoughts?

Spider

, 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


,

Perfect exactly what I was looking for.

Thanks

, Best setup I recomend is just setting up a rig and making a workgroup. No real reason for a production machine to have any access to internal security when you think about it.

classic asp should be pretty easy to move, just set up new webs and dump the scripts in there. If you have 2 machines its always easier to look at the one while your building the other. Basically copy the setup and tada... the only thing you might need to remeber is components (if your using any) and thats usually not a very big deal either.

Point sort of being at some point your going to have to change that thing around and while its no fun you have to imagine now is a better time to bite the bullet and get it set up the right way. Your alternative is to mess around for hours and hours praying that you change domain wide security to the point that running NET apps on that domain controller works. Personally I wouldnt sleep well knowing I had just messed around so bad with the OS that I had no clue what bugs and security holes I might have accidently opened in the process. I wont even get into the possible things that might stop working on the rest of the domain if you fiddle with accounts like "Network Service"

Oh and if thats not enough reason to make you think about it, consider how hard it will be to try and rember what you did at 2AM 6 months from now if that machine takes a dive or some critical update undoes what you changed.

I feel for you though, trust me we have all been down that road once or twice. Get some sleep and in the AM the task at hand wont seem nearly as bad. You live and you learn, and you will definatly be WAY better off making things right sooner than later

, Will do! ,

The code is ok..

Your getting an error because no banners are showing up in that zones rotation.

run this directly in the browser and you will see that there are no banners being generated for that zone ID
http://www.poconocommuter.com/aspbanner/aspbanner_inc.asp?Ba nnerZone=6

As a matter of fact I dont see any banners showing up for any zones previous to 6 which tells me either you dont have valid banners in there or the application variable info got corrupted do to a server crash / power off or something.

http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo95-1.htm

, What application you talking about ? I'll assume ASPProtect. In the future please specify what application you are talking about.

ASPProtect 7 already has protection that is quite effective. The no concurrent login feature which will not let the same username under a different ip log in at the same time. Meaning if someone gives out their info they will screw themslves over because eventually they won't be able to log in. Only one unique ip at a time can log in so even of 100 people know the info it won't really do anyone much good except the lucky one that logged in 1st and stayed logged in.  The username/password will eventually become more and more useless as more and people know it.

In addition to that is is a good idea to monitor the daily logs and single out a user you see logging in a lot. The more ips you see for that user the more chance it is multiple people logging in and you should take action. , well, ultimately it comes down to this and this is stated in the footer of every page in the cjwsoft family of websites.

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

and if you have some sort of weird timeout going on on your local machine and cant even give me a detailed error message there is just no way I can possibly troubleshoot it... I told you what to check and thats really all I can do... all my applications run on XP. As a matter of fact I do all my development on XP boxes.

It could be any numbers of things... odbc drivers, versions of vbscript... other software on the pc interfering such as antivirus script blockers like norton... all sorts of issues can pop up on personal machines running xp

If you put this up on a live professionally setup web server I can help you. On your local machine there is only so much I can suggest. ,

1st off, what application is this in reference too?
This question should be under that application's area in the forum.

2nd, really need more information and details. There are many ways and methods to send emails and they can all effect what gets delivered and what does not. All on an email server side of things. (I always recommend using the CDOSYS option using SMTP authentication with a real external email that has valid MX records) see my article...
http://www.powerasp.com/content/new/sending_email_cdosys.asp

3rd, your not telling me how many users we are talking about. ASP is not a very efficient way to send emails and extremely large amounts of users should be sent emails in a different way then from an asp application. It is just the nature of the technology being used. Some of different emailing methods the application supports may or may not give you better results. It is really best to experiment though honestly the option I mentioned above is always the best in my experience.

4th, if you are not getting a timeout or a scripting error than the ASP part of things is making it through the amount of users. You have to remember that often time emails that get sent out from web sites end up in junk filters for whatever reason. That is just another fact and why it it is usually best to send out serious newletters using a stand alone application like WorldCast or something.

I am doing a lot of guessing here because you really did not tell me much. I also still am not sure what application this is in reference to as 3 of my apps have newsletter features of sorts.

, the txt file is only lke 624 kb...so I'm not sure, Haven't gotten to it yet. I do know there are a few customers using it to edit the app and said it was not all that different. Maybe they will chime in with some tips., Has this been resolved ?, Your customer should set up a special page that you send banner clicks to. That page is the page that should record the ip and whatever other info needed.

I suppose you could make a page on your end that records that info and finally redirects them to the intended url as well.

All using simple asp. It's really not that dificult to do, but it is a loit easier if you do it this way and keep it seperate from the banner system.


Here is some interesting information not totally related to answering your question.

The banner system does not track IPs on individual clicks because if it did.. 100 clicks on a paricular banner in one day would result in 100 rows in the stats database instead of just 1 row. That may not seem like a lot, but imagine 30 banners all doing the same thing mulipled by 30 days. Your talking 90000 rows in the database instead of 900. It all comes down to what ASPBanner was designed for which is performance and low resource use.

Some banner systems out there even keep track of individual IP's per banner display. Try to imagine how much that effects performance and how much extra space is used in the database for stats. It's crazy and also the reason that the more little features a banner system offers the slower and slower it begins to run.

I am sure I lose sales all the time because I offer less features, but the truth is I know those features will eventually defeat the purpose of why I created this banner system in the 1st place and that i just not something I want to do.

The banner systems with every little feature are just not well suited to very busy sites no matter how well they are designed.cwilliams38324.8386689815,

I wonder if this could this be a FrontPage problem. I deleted the skins folder and re-ftp'd the original one that only contains default and Solid Black. I logged in and tried to change it back to default but it won't. I'm going to try making this folder a Frontpage subweb to see if that makes a difference.

When I add a user, I can not activat it.

It sends me back to log on and will now allow me to log in as admin???

I can restart the APP and log in as Admin, but the user I added

is still not activated??

My system will also not allow me to set the Stay Loged in FLag.

It just ignores it....

 

 

,

That would not happen unless you added a target to the login form or you're code had a base target set.

Like so..

<base target="_blank">

I would really need more detailed information. It's nothing the system does the way it ships under normal circumstances. For example you shouldn't see that behavior in any of the example protected ".asp" pages

that is unless you have something odd going on with your browser settings or you made changes to the login form or code around it causing it. (or you are using frames and dont have some of the targets and what not set correctly)

My guess is that it has to be something you added or did, but I really need to know more to offer more than that.

 

cwilliams38419.7687152778,

You can't do that. ASPProtect 7 does not work with ASP.NET.

It is a classic ASP application. As the web site states it can only be used to protect ".asp" pages written using vbscript.

ASP and ASP.net are completely different animals.

Thats why we have a .NET version.

There are 8 Access Levels by default.. they work like this.
http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=166& ; ; ;PN=1

Access Levels exist in ASPProtect Version 7 for backward compatibilty for customers using previous versions.

Truth is Groups are the replacement for Access Levels and they are much more powerful and flexible. You can also make as many of them as you want in the admin area.
http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=167& ; ; ;PN=1


On a side note:
We also coded ASPProtect Version 7 so there could technically be as many access levels as you wanted. It's not supported but if you really wanted more Access Levels you would carefully add more Access Levels to the drop down choices when you edit a user. "edit.asp"

I don't know why anyone would want to use Access Levels however when they can use Groups.

cwilliams38433.5546875,

I would look on the pictures folder on the server and see what is there for pictures. Also, when you see a broken X on the site right click and see where it is trying to get the picture from and what the pictures name should be.

I would also be sure to clear out your temporary internet files in IE. clost and restart all browsers..

maybe show me the site ? so I can see this happening ?

cwilliams38348.9748726852,

No luck...this is the message

Got it working.  Embarrassed  Had purchased a long time ago and forgot about needing to run the userreg.exe.  All is well and thanks for the follow up.

Using just ASP (Form Based Authentication) you can only protect the actual content of the ".asp" files.
 
You can however use some ASP tricks to stream other types of files to the users.
That way the actual file locations are never known and they can only get them/see these files when they are logged in as you would be streaming files to them after they logged in.
 
Below are informative links I have collected on the subject in an email I sent to another customer a while back.
 
 

Using Active Server Pages you can only protect ".asp" pages.
You can however password protect ".asp" pages that stream files to the user using code like in these examples therefore keeping the actual file name a secret.
 
 
 
 
 
 
And from another email I sent...
 
ASPProtect only protects the content of ".asp" pages. Directory protection is not possible using just ASP.
Other file extensions can not be protected using just ASP.
 
 
There are ways to get around this.
 
You'd want to do a technique like this to stream non ".asp" files to the users.
 
 
The safileup component from softartisans can actually do something similar as far as streaming the files go.
 
Then use something like ASPProtect to protect the ASP files that streams the files.
 
The actual location of the files is never known to the users and of they don't have access to the asp pages they can not see or get those other types of files.
 
Very doable, but nothing ASPProtect takes care of automatically.
This info above should get ya on track.
 
cwilliams38344.8751736111, Sounds crazy. I recently took over this web site and all IT duties. User today said member area was not working. All pages would not display. After restoring some files I got the members area partially working. But I cannot find where the database sits. I am able to get in and view users in the admin are and log in as a member. Thanks., Thanks for the install. After many hours I finally got part of the system working. I can log in and log out as a user. My problem is I want the pages
accesses by Members ONly.  The database will contain the names of the members and only they are allowed access, and no one else.  I tried Joe Blow to log in and it worked, the only thing is Joe was not in the database and he should have been locked out and a page come us saying something like "you are not a registered user, please complete the membership application" and then link back to the root web, application page.
I am also afraid of breaking the codes you provided thus far. I also want the password protected pages in a sub-web of the root web.
This may sound like elementary stuff, but this newbie is having constant trouble.  I am also referencing books on ASP and Access and VB and still come up with a dead end. Search the net and come up with a few codes which are described as something I am looking for, but dont want to add any thing like that for fear of breaking the whole thing.
Any suggestions?
, like I mentioned are you by chance running something like Norton Antivirus Script Blocking ?? That can cause timeouts and all sorts of problems with ASP as can other software like it. ,
