Blog Entry: 3/25/2006 2:55:47 PM

to finalize this thread.... turns out I was correct and this person was not unzipping the zip file correctly. ,

Our login works great, variables even help determine menu options.  When user logs on, however, it opens in a new page.  Is there a setting somewhere that sets whether you can open in a new or existing page?

Also, when you log off

,



one more problem I see...

I think your login box on the main page is missing the hidden form variable

http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo169-1.htm,

(Capcha Security Image Mod)

This mod will add a Capcha Security Image to the registration signup form.



Instructions:

Download the latest version of the ASP Security Image Generator from this site. http://www.tipstricks.org/

Unzip that download and copy "aspcaptcha.asp" and "aspcaptcha_distort.asp" into the aspprotect "users" folder.

Now edit "users/register.asp" with a text editor and add the code shown below in blue. The code to add goes near the bottom of the form right above the submit button. Just add the blue code. The code around it is shown to help you find the area of code where it gets placed.


    <tr>
      <td valign="top" align="right"><font face="Arial" size="2"><strong>
  Newsletter</strong></font></td> ; ; ; ; ; ; ;
      <td valign="top">
  <input type="checkbox" name="Newsletter" value="True" checked>
  <font face="Arial" size="1">Do you want to be subscribed to the
  newsletter ?</font></td>
    </tr>

    <tr>
      <td valign="top" align="right"></td>
      <td valign="top">&nbsp;<img src="aspcaptcha.asp" alt="" width="86" height="21" />
   <font face="Arial" size="2" color="#000000">Type the characters shown in image for verification.</font><br>
   <input name="strCAPTCHA" type="text" id="strCAPTCHA" maxlength="8" /></td>
    </tr>

    <tr>
      <td colspan="2" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
        <p align="center"><input type="submit" value="Register"></p>
      </td>
    </tr>


ok, now edit "users/add_new_account.asp" with a text editor and add the code shown below in blue. Just add the blue code. The code around it is shown to help you find the area of code where it gets placed.

If User_Custom6_Used = True Then
 If User_Custom6_Required = True Then
  If  Custom6 = "" Then
   ErrorMessage = ErrorMessage & Server.URLEncode("You need to enter a " & User_Custom6_Name &".\n\n")
  End IF
 End If
End If
 
 strCAPTCHA = Trim(Request.Form("strCAPTCHA"))
 if strCAPTCHA = Trim(Session("CAPTCHA_" & Session.SessionID)) then
 else
  ErrorMessage = ErrorMessage & Server.URLEncode("You did not type in the verification info correctly.\n\n")
 End If 

 
If ErrorMessage <> "" Then
 Response.Redirect "register.asp?" & Request.Form & "&ErrorMessage=" & ErrorMessage
 Response.End
End If

Your done. You just added a Capcha Security Image to your signup form. If you would like a more distorted image that is more difficult for an automated program to figure out change the image tag to call the "aspcaptcha_distort.asp" page instead. It will look more like this.

Hi Chris,

I tried changing using Notepad in the config_inc.asp

from:

If  Application("SERVER_SOFTWARE") = "" Then
 Application("SERVER_SOFTWARE") = Request.ServerVariables("SERVER_SOFTWARE")
End If

To

Application("SERVER_SOFTWARE") = "iis/6"

and the albums still do not show up under the categories

Rhona (rookie)

 

,

btw: who is this hosting company anyway ?

and did they give you access to a control panel that lets you manage your site ? sometimes that is where you manage those permissions if their interface supports it

lastly, are frontpage extensions installed in your web so it can be connected to via frontpage ?

How to bring up Banner Calling 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"

cwilliams38325.7399537037,

ASPProtect protects ".asp" pages only.

That is your problem.

,

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.

,

Well. fontpage publishing is evil. That you have found out.

Do not use it. It usually wont work right when running asp code locally and also at the server because of differences with the paths and virtual directory structure. etc etc etc

You can definetly use frontpage to connect to the web site live and drag and drop files into it/edit them... but the sooner you stop using the publishing feature the better off you will be.

,

so use the connection string the readme.txt in the sql installation folder file tells you to... it has the correct username.. I just posted that info above

or change the username in the connection string so its rigfht

or go into sql and give any user you want access to the database and use them



Any connection strings that come in the datacon_inc.asp file the way it ships are examples. We fully expect people to edit them.

Also.. the SQL scripts primarly goal is give you a properly set up database with correct files and table settings. Users and permissions often need a little extra attention from the installer as that part doesn't always get set right by the scripts It really all depends on what sql user you are when you execute the scripts. Many times the user someone logs in with doesn't have permission to make users and set permissions.

cwilliams38325.9116898148,

Your SQL statement to the database is the key.

You want to change the sortby hyperlink on that page so that it will in turn change the dynamic sql statement to sort the way you want

Find

?SORTBY=Date_Created

change it to

?SORTBY=Date_Created+ASC

or maybe

?SORTBY=Date_Created+DESC


One of them is the default anyway, but I cant remember which is which off hand so just try them both till you get the desired result

 

near the top you can also change the default sortby when thet page is loaded

SORTBY = Request("SORTBY")
If SORTBY = "" Then
 SORTBY = "Name"
End If

there you would use a space though.. not a "+" sign when adding the ASC or DESC

The + sign is only used in the hyperlinks because it means a space for browsers that can't deal with spaces in links

cwilliams38406.6011458333,

Hi there,

Well, that is why we added the PayPal subscription pack where all of that is taken care of and customers get put under a recurring billing cycle.
The more people you get to pay that way the less you have to do.

We also have routines for the two other supported payment methods so people can look up their account and add time to it whether it is active/expired or not.

Other than that, yes it is something you need to sort out on your own based on how you want to run your system. You have the source code and the sky is the limit on how you want handle all of that.  You send out an email to users about to expire. Whether they come back to the site/look up their account and add more time to it is up to them. I really just do not see any way ASPProtect could handle that whole process automatically.

As for batch changing to users in the database. We give you the source code and we also use an open database structure. You can run any query you want on the database whether with ASP code or directly in your database using the tools that come with it, You can write any code you like to do whatever you like to the database. You can even tie other systems and code into the database via OBDC and manipulate data. The sky is the limit like I said. I also don't really see how batch changes to the database relates to individual users paying again for access or not especially since we include payment  pages were a users can look up their accounts and pay for and add more time to it automatically ? At least not regarding the payment routine we provide support for.

ASPProtect can not handle everything every person would need to do. It is meant as a solid starting point for any project, but there are going to be times when more functionality will need to be added by the customer based on their specific needs.

I am running Windows 2000 server. I do believe asp.net IS installed as I have the .NET 1.1 framework installed.

Funny about the bounce backs. I am at about 10% of my limit, which I control as I am the network admin. I'll check into that.

, Well I still haven't gotten it to work yet completely.  I tried to import the users again and it imported some, but timed out again.  Trying to log in takes forever...ready to jump back on this one?, Chris,

Thanks for the reply. It all makes sense.

I have gone with your first option but here is the problem:

I have moved the password protected page from the detail page with the querystring to the straight .asp page. This obviously fixes the previous error.

Once someone has logged in they are then presented with a list of links to the previously protected pricelist detail pages (example - "somepage.asp?ID=3""). They are then able to access the pricelists.

The problem is that if someone copies the pricelist URL they are then able to pass it on to someone else and bypass the password protection.

If I also password protect the pricelist pages then someone will have to login twice.

Is there some code that i can add that will simply check that they have logged in otherwise kick them back out to the protected .asp page.

All code in your documentation tends to open the login page regardless of whether you have previously logged in.


Thanks,

Stuart

Ok, if the link to the import/export screen does not show up its probably because you never put the import/export path in the admin settings?

go check that for me.

cause running that page without a path for the files could cause a timeout.. thats why the link doesn't show if the path is not entered (so people won't run it)

it looks sorta like this (there will be a field to fill in which wont show here)
Settings below specify the physical directory path of the export directory. This is used by the system when using the import/export feature. The export directory needs modify permissions for the anonymous webserver account.
ExportDirectory


the path must be valid for your file structure and it must have correct permissions (when creating files) ,

Hello,

You'll need to find a validation function to test for it.
Either server side or right in the form via client side javascript.

I dont have any experience with validating zip codes here much less UK.

Google it would be my best advice.. or maybe find some free app written in UK format and see how they did it.

Good Luck..

And if ya find anything post it here if ya like

cwilliams38381.5607638889,

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.

, Its one of the drwbacks of the encyrption.. sometimes.. VERY RARELY  it will produce things that cause a problem and will not work.

It is something I am doing more research on ..,

I'm using version 6 upgrade and recently some of the users complained that their passwords are no longer working. I was able to replicate the problem as I also experienced the same thing with my account.

Once I reset the password thru e-mail (Forgotten your password?), I am able to login but it fails later. This is weird as I have an identical copy of the code running flawlessly  on my test server.

The only change which I made to the original downloadable code is by adding password encryption using Base 64 encryption.

Any ideas what might be the problem

,

If you can would you do it for a price as a mod or will this be added to the new version.

, check the connection string in the dataconn_inc.asp file. If using MSAccess it will show the location. If using SQL Server it will show the SQL Server details in which case there is no physical database file.,

I'm in a bind cause I'm supposed to be launching on Monday!?  I have four different subscriptions set up in ASPProtect and I'm going to 2Checkout for payment.  When I go to 2checkout I have the same 4 subscriptions setup. 

How does ASPProtect know what product id to use in 2Checkout? 

I have the redirect setup etc. but it's using the default URL in 2checkout and not the product(Subscriptions).  The only way I can tell what the user selects is from the price... and I'm specifying the time period, the cost, group in the 2checkout1.asp but I'm not getting the user set for the periods either....  my main problem is the interface to 2checkout... I think if a product id is added somehow it might work.  What can I do?

thanks, -Jason

It a generic error that means something is wrong with your data connection.

Parent paths being enabled on the server is a requirement of the application. That error means just what it says.

you can change all the server side includes to virtual includes that will work or you can ask you host to enable parent paths.. those are the options

, yes, any page you want protected needs to be edited..

You can probably have a login box on a non protected page. Just copy the generated source html form code for the login box of a protected page. Then put it on your non-protected page, but change the action to the page you want them to log in to.

In other words go to a protected page. See the login box, view the html browser source and use that to make your login form on the main page.

I have not tried it with .NET but I am pretty sure you can do it since it pretty much works the same as the classic asp version of ASPProtect.

try it.. see if it works.. If I have time tommoro I will test it out., Not the way it ships. You would have to add that functionality by editing the source code and database., I checked the SQL table and had 1 banner with no zone ID. I added it in
directly through the SQL interface and now it seems to be ok., Ok.. glad you got it working.,

I just installed ASPProtect on my site. The instructions were definately on the target. Very very good instructions.

But... Isn't there always a but ???

I needed to setup my site with MS SQL and it is hosted so I don't have Enterprise Manager. I tried the web based Enterprise Manager and any other one I could find. But, I kept getting errors when trying to use the SQL Script.

I finally had to go back to my work where we do have the licenses and get an SQL Admin to use Enterprise Manager to run the script and it worked finally.

I don't know if this is a common problem ??? But, maybe you would want to look at the SQL Server script or make a different version that would work with the Web Based SQL manager.

Thanks

Hi - When I try the mass email feature, I get an error that says:

ODBC Microsoft access driver) too few parameters expected 1

/aspprotect/password/admin/send_mass_email.asp line 280

Oddly...this feature works fine when I use the original admin user that you setup. 

But I setup another one with my username and password (not test) - because I was afraid anything with "test" could get deleted. 

Any ideas on why the new admin userid would not work?  Note: I have not change any code from the original installation.

 

,

you not seeing the real error

http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=11& PN=1

, I just started using ASPJpeg, and i used the "generate_new_thumbnails.asp" to create new thumbs of all of the existing albums.  It generates the thumbs just fine, but they don't get picked up by the "Randomly Selected Photo" section.  If I upload new pics, they will show up in the random photo area.

So, it reads the new upload thumbs, but not the newly generated ones using your .asp page. 

Is there anything I can do?    ,

No luck...this is the message


 

Return To Import / Export Screen.

Active Server Pages error 'ASP 0113'

Script timed out

/members/aspprotect/password_admin/upload_post.asp

The maximum amount of time for a script to execute was exceeded. You can change this limit by specifying a new value for the property Server.ScriptTimeout or by changing the value in the IIS administration tools.

,

thanks!! the file took care of the extra slash. I also fixed the problem by modifying the permissions.

, site looks fine in ie and also firefox from a windows machine..

I dont have a mac and I have not heard of that browser before

Sounds like an issue with the way that browser handles and puts together html/flash in relation to the layout of your site which is fairly complex

less likely - could also be related to computer processor/resources as that is a decent sized flash file and could bog down certain machines on the client level.. internet connection as well ?

those are my guesses.. I dont see anything wrong from windows xp web browsing from a fast machine and on broadband.. looks pretty nice actually ,

[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.
Al

,

OK, I figured out the problem.  Not running ASP becasue the pages are not saved as ASP but rather HTM... OK so I am smart like a tractor but strong like an ox.

cwilliams38229.9128819444, Just checked XML Parsing with your file. Got a clean bill of health on that: It's working.

Got the right code for the location of the ipn.asp in my paypal1.asp, from http:// all the way to .asp.

I think since everything is set up properly from the looks of things, I'll wait and see. If I get another one who flubs things, then I'll start the testing of the account. But if it goes through just fine, then maybe the Internet just hiccoughed on the first guy... thanks again!
