Create "status" area in header of all pages?

Hello,

I want to have the usual login status area that many websites have. This is the area that says "Login / Register" along with having the username and password area above it. Then once you do that and you login it should change to the "Welcome <user>. (Logout) My Profile. History".

I used CSS Sculptor and Site Sculptor to create my custom design.

you would use the securoty assist show region server beahvior.

Create the content that should show if the user is not logged in, highlight it, then go to insert -> Web Assist -> Security Assist - > Show Region. Select the Not Logged in rule.


Then create the content that show if the user is logged in, this time select the logged in rule.

I get that part, but where do I find the bindings, or code that tells the show if logged in part to display the username and link to the appropriate profile, order history page?

to display the user name, you need to modify the authenticate user behavior to store the user name column in a session variable.

Double click the authenticate user server behavior on the third page of the wizard, you can select columns from the user table to store in session variables, select the user name column.

you can then find the binding in the session collection.


the profile and order details use the user ID session variable to determine the information to show, so you dont need any bindings, just add strait links to those pages.

Can I do this after I already went through the wizard? Or should I delete everything and do it again?

yes, you just need to edit the authenticate user server behavior to store the user name in the session.
