SecurityAsssist - Create Security Pages - Validate Email

SecurityAsssist - Create Security Pages - Validate Email

Hi - I have used the 'Create Security Pages' function to create my login, logout, update etc. pages.

In my registration.php I notice this line:

<?php
if (ValidatedField('registration','registration')) {
if ((strpos((",".ValidatedField("registration","registration").","), "," . "2" . ",") !== false || "2" == "")) {
if (!(false)) {
?>
The value you entered for the Email field is already contained in our records.
<?php //WAFV_Conditional registration.php registration(2:)
}
}
}?>

However, I can't find any behaviour in the page that actually checks for the duplicate address and returns the validation.

Is there a place/document that Web Assist has to intruct on how to complete this feature? Is there a similar doc that shows how to create the validation email a user is sent when they create an account?

Many thanks

I also see that the Create Security Pages wizard also put this in the bottom of the registration.php page:

var Registration_group_Email_Spry = new Spry.Widget.ValidationTextField("Registration_group_Email_Spry", "email", { minChars:6, maxChars:500, is_unique:true , validateOn:["blur"]});

I am wondering what the line is_unique:true is for.

In the past, I've done server-side validations to return the totalrows based on the lookup of my user table, but this is the first time I have tried SA Create Security Pages. Does this wizard include some sort of Spry lookup of duplicate emails?

Either way, my form will post duplicate emails right now so I'm hoping someone can help.

On the server behaviors panel, there is a server behavior name "Server Validation" One of the Available validation types is Unique Database Value. This Server validation type is used to check that the email entered is unique email address.

if the Unique DB Value validation type is not working, send a copy of your page so I can see the code. the is_unique:true code in the spry validation is really just a place holder as a reminder to add the Unique DB Value server validation type, it will be ignored by the spry code.

Creating email to send the user to have them validate their email address is a technique called double opt-in. There is no tutorial for this, but the following thread has an explanation of how to create it:

Thanks Jason - just so I'm clear - should the Create Pages wizard have put in the Server Validation behaviour automatically or is this something to be added afterwards?

That Depends on the settings you use in the wizard.

On the Mange Pages tab, click the edit icon next to Configure Field Settings. If you check the option "Unique Column For registration and User Update Pages", the Unique Database value validation type will be added for that column.

No matter what I do I'm unable to get the 'check unique' included by the wizard.

I have made sure that the Email field is unique when I configure the manage pages portion.

Attached is the output of the registration page from the wizard.

what version of security assist do you have installed?

Make sure you have installed the 2.0.3 version that is available from your download center, if you have a previous version installed, make sure to uninstall it from the extension manager before installing this newer one.

Hi Jason - I have 2.0.3 installed. I did uninstall the previous version first.

Perhaps this issue is related to my ticket here:

showthread.php?t=22752&goto=newpost

I will follow up with that one first.

Yes, the issues in that ticket could definitely be the culprit.

Hi Jason - as per my other ticket, I don't get (Prior Version) anymore but the registration.php page still does not check against existing emails, even though I selected that option when setting up the wizard. I've attached the new page exactly as it was generated by the wizard.
