Security Assist and User Reg

Security Assist and User Reg

I have just purchased the Web Development Suite and the User Reg Solution pack and i'm using dreamweaver cs4 and having a bit of trouble.

(1) I am learning (by reading these posts) that the User Reg Solution pack is not very customisable, although it does seem to work very well out of the box. What I wanted to achieve is a registration page that only contains email, pass, confirm pass, first name and last name, WITH captcha secuirty questions at the bottom to validate. Would I be right in saying that these registration pages are not customisable, even with Secuirty Assist?

I have tried deleting the additonal fields (phone, fax etc..) from the main user_registration.php and this results in errors and I'm not all that interested in hiding these fields as that is not a very professional approach.

(2) Secondly, Is it possible to use Secuirty Assist to do e-mail activation, whereby the users account will not go active until they have verified a link that is sent to them?

(3) Lastly, is it possible by using any of the web development tools to create either the image captcha or the security questions and add them to a form?

Thank you for your time!

1) This is incorrect. They should be pretty easily customizable with our tools if you know how to use them at all or if you read the help documentation provided.

2) You need to use Universal Email and dataAssist to do this. I think there is a tutorial or recipe included with security assist on this topic.

3) No way to create the captcha or security question itself. But all you have to do is copy and paste them and they can be added to any page... and it does use the WebAssist validation toolkit to do the actual validation, which can be applied to the pages you copied and pasted to for the full functionality.

User Reg Page

Hi Ray,

Thank you for your prompt response. I am very new to your products, though I do have a good background with dreamweaver.

The help files that I have with the user reg sol. pack seem very basic, (Just a couple of *.pdfs that desribe how to set the globals etc..) is there more advanced ones available? Maybe some tutorials, like how to delete fields from the registration page?

If not, are you able to give me some guidance as to how this would be achieved? As by just deleteing the fields, or deleting / replacing the server behaviours results in errors for me. All I am wanting to do at this stage is remove a few fields from the User Reg Page.

Some assistance with this would be very appreciated,

Shaun

The detailed documentation is provided with the tools used to build the solution. Look at Validation Toolkit (server validation), DataAssist, and Universal Email documentation for details on how the page was made from a tools perspective.

Any field is accounted for in several places, so you would have to delete it from all relevent locations.

For any given field there is:
1) Spry validation, which includes a javascript call near the bottom of the body that would have to be removed. This is documented with Dreamweaver CS4 documentation
2) Server validation which can be edited by hand on top of the page and the line removed, or you can edit with the Server Behaviors if you have Validation Toolkit installed.
3) Database insert server behavior (documented with DataAssist)... that server behavior would need to be updated to remove the extra fields referenced.

Account Activation

I cant find any information on how to do account activation. I need the admin to receive an email with a link to a page to activate every account creation. How do i do this?

That functionality is included in the user registration solution.

To do it by hand you would:

1) use universal email to send the email
2) create the page to activate the accounts
3) add a link to that page in your email

Take it in steps. Can you get an email to send in general? Are you able to create a page that updates and activates an account in general? From there it is just a matter of constructing the link in the email which shouldn't be that difficult.
