Modified User Registration Form

Hello,
I am looking for a solution where I have an area where a visitor simply puts in their email address (optional), city and state, and maybe a few other basic pieces of information and upon submitting is taken to a secure page to click a download link? I don't need them to technically "register" and go through the verification process etc... Rather I just need to gather some basic info before allowing them to pass through to the page with the pdf download. Is there a modification to the "user registration" product I have or do you have an alternate solution that might assist us with this request?

the user registration solution pack wont work for this, simply too much would need to be modified, you are better pf creating this using DataAssist and Security Assist.


Create the database table to hold the information you want to capture.

then create the form in Dreamweaver for the user to input the information.

Use the DataAssist Insert Record behavior to store the information. In the insert record behavior, there is a section titled Session Variable, this stores the inserted record ID to a session, make note of the session variable name.

Now create the download page, the go to Modify -> Security Assist -> access rile manager.

Create a new access rule as:

Allow if
Click the lightning bolt next to value and select the session variable created by the insert record behavior.

set the Criteria to <>

leave the compare to value blank.

Now on the download page, go to Insert -> WebAssist -> Security Assist -> Page access, select the rule that you just created to restrict access to the download page to only be allowed if the download form is completed.

Great, thank you very much for the prompt reply. Would I need to purchase both dataassist and securityassist separately now?
