From Registration through Login...

From Registration through Login...

Is there an easy way to login a user when they submit the register button on a register page?

Do I need to make and carry the session variables for username and password?

Ideas?

Add the security assist authenticate user behavior to the to the registration page.


you will need to make sure the insert record behavior does not redirect and that the authenticate user code is after the insert record code, also check the authenticate user behavior on the login page, go to the third step of the wizard, and make sure that any sessions set on the login page are also set on the registration page.

ok Jason... first off thank for the reply...

Am I supposed to have an action on the form? Self maybe... The form doesn't post nor login...

Here's what I have so far...

<?php require_once('Connections/ReThinkNow.php');?>
<?php require_once( "WA_SecurityAssist/Helper_PHP.php" ); ?>
<?php
if (!function_exists("GetSQLValueString")) {
function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "")
{
if (PHP_VERSION < 6) {
$theValue = get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? stripslashes($theValue) : $theValue;
}

$theValue = function_exists("mysql_real_escape_string") ? mysql_real_escape_string($theValue) : mysql_escape_string($theValue);

switch ($theType) {
case "text":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
break;
case "long":
case "int":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";
break;
case "double":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? doubleval($theValue) : "NULL";
break;
case "date":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
break;
case "defined":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? $theDefinedValue : $theNotDefinedValue;
break;
}
return $theValue;
}
}

mysql_select_db($database_ReThinkNow, $ReThinkNow);
$query_classes = "SELECT * FROM rtnClass";
$classes = mysql_query($query_classes, $ReThinkNow) or die(mysql_error());
$row_classes = mysql_fetch_assoc($classes);
$totalRows_classes = mysql_num_rows($classes);
?>
<?php
if(isset($_POST["submit"])){
$WA_Auth_Parameter = array(
"connection" => $ReThinkNow,
"database" => $database_ReThinkNow,
"tableName" => "rtnUser",
"columns" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"rtnEmail".$WA_Auth_Separator."rtnPassword"),
"columnValues" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"".((isset($_POST["username"]))?$_POST["username"]:"") ."".$WA_Auth_Separator."".((isset($_POST["password"]))?$_POST["password"]:"") .""),
"columnTypes" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"text".$WA_Auth_Separator."text"),
"sessionColumns" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"rtnUID".$WA_Auth_Separator."rtnEmail".$WA_Auth_Separator."rtnPassword".$WA_Auth_Separator."rtnUserLevel"),
"sessionNames" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"rtnUID".$WA_Auth_Separator."rtnEmail".$WA_Auth_Separator."rtnPassword".$WA_Auth_Separator."rtnUserLevel"),
"successRedirect" => "login.php",
"failRedirect" => "",
"gotoPreviousURL" => FALSE,
"keepQueryString" => FALSE
);

WA_AuthenticateUser($WA_Auth_Parameter);
}
?>

it looks like the authenticate user code is before the insert record code.

you will need to make sure the insert record behavior does not redirect and that the authenticate user code is after the insert record code.

the user cannot be logged in until the user has been stored in the database. PHP code is executed top to bottom.


right now, the authenticate user behavior is checking the database for a user that has not been inserted to the database yet.

Thanks for your help Jason... I have one additional question regarding passing variables through the login...

I have a user that registers, let's say he's uid=100, how do I pass that variable from registration.php through login.php to step-two.php??? I've tried filtering the recordset by URL parameter, Session variable, form variable and I can't get it to pass through any of the recordset update able details...

no matter what variables I filter with - I always get record #1...

any ideas?

if you set the authenticate user behavior up properly, it will store the UID in a session variable when the login occurs.

Thanks for the reply Jason...

I believe I have login session setup correctly, apparently I don't since it doesn't actually set the session correctly

On the reg.php page I have the authenticate user setup AFTER the insert record using the following data...

"sessionColumns" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"rtnUID".$WA_Auth_Separator."rtnFrNumber".$WA_Auth_Separator."rtnEmail".$WA_Auth_Separator."rtnPassword".$WA_Auth_Separator."rtnLName".$WA_Auth_Separator."rtnFName".$WA_Auth_Separator."rtnUserLevel"),
"sessionNames" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"rtnUID".$WA_Auth_Separator."rtnFrNumber".$WA_Auth_Separator."rtnEmail".$WA_Auth_Separator."rtnPassword".$WA_Auth_Separator."rtnLName".$WA_Auth_Separator."rtnFName".$WA_Auth_Separator."rtnUserLevel"),



I want to set the users rtnUID, rtnFrNumber, rtnEmail, rtnPassword, rtnLName, rtnFName and rtnUserLevel

On the login.php page I have, literally, exactly the same 'sessionColumns' redirecting the user to a profile.php page that "should" show the current new user, except I only get the 1st row in the DB...

Keep in mind I am a dumbass and if it wasn't for the drag and drop tools WA makes, I'd be totally lost...

BTW, the tool should work with CS5 - right?

Any help would be greatly appreciated...

send a copy of your login and registration pages in a zip archive please.


yes, if you have the most recent extension versions, they are CS5 compatible.

am I missing something? your registration page does not have any form elements on it that correspond with the insert record behavior or the login behavior?
