Secure page

Dear Jason, I've created a Registration Page with CSS Form Builder and used DataAssist Insert Record to bind it to the Database table. The password is encrypted using MD5.

After registration, the user is brought to a login page. This login page has an email, password and a submit button and I used WebAssist Authenticate User. After logging in the user is brought to a Welcome.php page.

However, when I try to 'secure' the welcome.php page with SecurityAssist, I get a message 'no rules defined'. Do I have to create a rule and if yes is there guidance on how to create the rule?

Note: In Dreamweaver, I would normally use 'User Authenticatio'n to secure pages using 'Log in User' and 'Restrict Access to Page'. It seems more complicated with WebAssist - but maybe I'm missing something obvious.

In addition, I then tried to built secure pages using the Security Assist Wizard, but this proved problematic as well. I built the pages, with the intention of only using, logon.php, logout.php and forgotpassword.php. But again this didn't perform the tasks I expected, so I gave up - the logon page was validating the password - expecting a certain mix of characters, etc - I didn't know how to remove the validation.

Which is the best route to take if I want (1) an independent registration page designed in CSS Form Builder and binded/bound using WebAssist 'Insert record' and using an encrypted password (2) a logon page and (3) several secure pages - welcome page, report page (thanks to you, I now know how to do a report page that pulls data from two tables and which has search capabilities), etc.

I can prepare all the above security in Dreamweaver, but I'd prefer to have the ability to do it with WebAssist, because of its ability to create sessions, and it seems more powerful, - unfortunately I've been unable to harness this power on this occasion.
