SA: Login Page UserActive validation

SA: Login Page UserActive validation

Hi - I am using the SA login page created by the wizard.

Everything seems to work fine, except that my 'Sorry your account is not active' validation seems to always want to show the error message.

Here is my helper rule:

case "UserActive":
$comparisons[0] = array(FALSE, "".((isset($_SESSION['SecurityAssist_UserActive']))?$_SESSION['SecurityAssist_UserActive']:"") ."", 2, "1");
break;

And here is my show region on the page:

<?php if(!WA_Auth_RulePasses("UserActive")){ // Begin Show Region ?>
<p style="color:#F60;">Sorry - your account is not active. Please email us for more information.</p>
<?php } // End Show Region ?>

The login works as expected - if the user active state is 0 the login does not proceed. If it is 1 it passes. The problem I am having is that the error message seems to show on first load of the page whether or not the user enters their details to log in.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

your rule is checking to make sure that the $_SESSION['SecurityAssist_UserActive'] is NOT EQUAL to 1.


before the user has logged in, the session does not have a value so is not equal to one, you rule evaluates to true.

the only time your rule will evaluate to false is if the user has logged in and the $_SESSION['SecurityAssist_UserActive'] session equals 1


add the logged into <your user table name> rule around this rule so it will only show if logged in:

<?php if(WA_Auth_RulePasses("Logged into <your users table>")){ // Begin Show Region ?>
<?php if(!WA_Auth_RulePasses("UserActive")){ // Begin Show Region ?>
<p style="color:#F60;">Sorry - your account is not active. Please email us for more information.</p>
<?php } // End Show Region ?>
<?php } // End Show Region ?>

Thanks Jason

I have changed my rule so that it restricts if <?php echo $_SESSION['SecurityAssist_UserActive']; ?> <> 1

On the login page:

<?php if(WA_Auth_RulePasses("Validated form")){ // Begin Show Region ?>
<p>Invalid username or password. <a href="/forgotpassword.php">Did you forget your password</a>?</p>
<?php } // End Show Region ?>
<?php if(WA_Auth_RulePasses("Log in success")){ // Begin Show Region ?>
<p>You have been logged in</p>
<?php } // End Show Region ?>
<?php if(WA_Auth_RulePasses("Failed log in")){ // Begin Show Region ?>
<p>Invalid username or password. <a href="/forgotpassword.php">Did you forget your password</a>?</p>
<?php } // End Show Region ?>
<?php if(WA_Auth_RulePasses("Emailed password")){ // Begin Show Region ?>
<p style="color:#F60;">Password information emailed, please check your inbox</p>
<?php } // End Show Region ?>
<?php if(WA_Auth_RulePasses("Successful update")){ // Begin Show Region ?>
<p>Registration completed successfully, please log in to access the site</p>
<?php } // End Show Region ?>
<?php if(WA_Auth_RulePasses("Logged into users")){ // Begin Show Region ?>
<?php if(!WA_Auth_RulePasses("UserActive")){ // Begin Show Region ?>
<p style="color:#F60;">Sorry - your account is not active. Please email us for more information.</p>
<?php } // End Show Region ?>
<?php } // End Show Region ?>

The rules works - if the users UserActive is not 1 the login does not proceed.

However the error message does not appear?

I've had this working before - I can't figure out what I have done wrong!

Got a similar problem (also mentioned on another thread with a different rule).

If user is active (=1) rule works: access granted

If user is not active (=0) rule works: access denied, redirect to login-page, error message shows up on login-page

If I call the login page without submitting the login form, the error message shows up

I've installed version 2.0.4
