CMS and Security Assist

Hi
I have a site with CMS 2 (built originally with SS) and updated to CMS 2. I want to add a login screen to my site (no problem there) for clients to login and see their account info etc. I obviously do not want them to edit my site.

Are there any pitfalls on a site with CMS 2 when adding a login system for clients?

Thanks

Mike

Yes, power cms uses security assist, for displaying the live edit button, this will create 2 helper group rules files.


the work around is to make a backup copy of the PowerCMS/WA_CMS/WA_CMS.php file, save it as WA_CMS2.php


In the backup version, comment out line 5:
//require_once( "../WA_SecurityAssist/Helper_PHP.php" );


on your pages with security assist applied, change the following from the developer notes:
<?php include("PowerCMS/WA_CMS/WA_CMS.php"); ?>


to:
<?php include("PowerCMS/WA_CMS/WA_CMS2.php"); ?>

PowerCMS + Security Assist

I am having the same problem. I followed the instructions in this thread commenting line five but it is not working. I've attached a screen show of what's happening. It should be getting the content from the CMS but it's not.

PowerCMS + security assist how to play well together

My client LOVES the powerCMS and the site is almost finished. The downloads page and a couple the links in the sidebar need security assist -- specifically logged in to user for page access. The email password page, register page and log in page all seem work fine as I took out the cms and just did a php page include for the sidebar. But the profile page doesn't, gives error line 1. I added page access to the download page and got errors. These files and screen caps on errors and what the page SHOULD look like are all included in the zip file. Let me know if you have any questions or need additional files. Also Ray has access to my server files if that turns out to be necessary. Thanks!

does this still apply to the newest versions? I tried installing Security assist to a site that already had CMS attached to it. The site was fin, but when i tried to log in to the CMS panel, the screen was blank.

a blank page means that a php error is occurring but error reporting is turned off.

to turn error reporting on, add the following code at line 1:

php:
<?php

error_reporting
(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors','on');
?>



once we know what the error is, we will be able to troubleshoot the cause.
