Feedback when profile is updated & newlines in PW Email

Feedback when profile is updated & newlines in PW Email

Hi,

Regarding the Profile page created with the WA SA Wizard. How could I include some kind of feedback when a person clicks update. Currently the page just reloads and the user is left to wonder if anything happened or if the update was successful. Possibly a message "Database successfully updated" in bold red posted at the top of the page after the page was updated.

Also, regarding the password request page EmailPW.php. The page functions properly, and I receive an Email with the proper information. However all the items are on one continuous line even though I added multiple newlines in the SA Email Password Server Behavior. I can see the multiple \n in the code.

Attached is the EmailPW file.

Thanks,
Dennis

On the profile page, double click the update record behavior in the server behaviors panel, set the redirect to go back to the profile page but include a querystring variable:
profile.php?update=true

then use the following code on your apge to show the updated message:

php:
<?php if(isset($_GET) && $_GET == "true"){ ?>

Your Profile Has benn updated
<?php ?>



for the returns in the email try using:
\r\n

if that doesnt work then use <br /> tags

Hi,

I'm trying to do this too, but not sure where exactly I need to put this stuff in my
newpassword.php page and user_profile.php page.


but include a querystring variable:
profile.php?update=true


<?php if(isset($_GET) && $_GET == "true"){ ?>
Your Profile Has benn updated
<?php } ?>


Thanks

To Dennis, I tried this for each new line and it worked too.

Hi,

I'm way to much of a rookie to be giving php tips, but I also know how it feels, anxiously waiting to get the help needed so you can get your page working. So I will tell you what I did.

With your newpassword.php page open, look in the Server Behavior panel, and double click on the Update Record behavior. In the bottom of the Update Record window is "After updating, go to:".

Assuming you want your "success" message on the same page, you would place "newpassword.php?update=true" (without the quotes) in that "After updating, go to:" field.

Then in the code view window for the page, place this code (this is what I used, it differs slightly from Jasons tip)

php:
<?php if(isset($_GET['update']) && ($_GET['update']) == "true"){ ?> 

Your Profile has been updated
<?php ?>

where ever you want the success message displayed. I placed mine at the top of the page at the end of the first line of text after a few "&nbsp;". I also added a css style to make it stand out.

Excellent, thanks. it worked. I'm in the same boat as you with php probably, I wish I majored in it :) I try to learn though.

But it's nice to have a community of people as well as support here to help each other out.

*One thing I'd like to note if someone is reading this and runs into a error 404 because the path is not fond correctly

I changed the default

change this:

Newpassword.php?update=true

to:

/folder/Newpassword.php?update=true

or if Newpassword.php is in the root directory as your index file keep:

Newpassword.php?update=true

just took me a few minutes to figure it out.

thanks for the quick reply Dennis

Just my 2 cents, I still prefer redirecting to a dedicated confirmation page with options of what to do next. Placing the message on the update page sort of just stops the flow there. Not that the user is too dumb to know they can just click a menu item, I still like to offer them some logical direction. The profile has been updated, the confirmation message shows it, but since they are done with the update page, why go back there?

If I were to use this message in place of a confirmation page, I would perhaps go back to the users main menu profile page, and display it there. Just a thought.

Good thought, I will redirect to profile with a update message there. Thanks
