Agreeing to terms on first login only

Hi Guys,

I am not sure if this is the right place to post this question.

Brief on what I am trying to achieve:

I have set up a user login page using Security Assist which auto directs to the Update user page (Default Settings)

What I would like to do is have a page where the user has to tick a terms and condition box the very first time they log in. They have to only do this once and once ticked it should never show again meaning if user logs in again and if the terms and condition box had been ticked previously, this box never shows on subsequent logins.

Any help in this would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards

Jonathon

Hi Jonathon,

The easiest way to do this is have a field that flags that the T&Cs have been accepted.

So when a user creates the account you set this field to 0 and on login you would create a redirect based on the value of that field.

So if the field equals 0 then the user is redirected to the T&Cs page. The T&Cs page would actually sit in a form with the tick box and the submit button would trigger the update record behaviour which would change the value of the flag in the user record to a 1.

That way, the user will never get redirected to the T&cs page again.

However, a much tidier way of doing this would be to get the users to agree to the T&Cs during the registration process. Otherwise you could potentially end up with a load of user accounts that haven't agreed to the T&Cs which means housekeeping for the site owner.

Cheers
Ian

Hi Ian Thank you for the reply.

The reason that I am opting for the on first login is because we will be registering each user so they will need to accept the T&Cs on first login.

I have set the registration form to register 0 when the user account has been registered.

Creating the form page to trigger the db. update to 1 I can do.

My only issue I have (not knowing the answer LOL) is making the login page redirect to either to the update or t&C page.

any help in this direction would be appreciated.

Kind regards

Hi Jon,

Firstly, you need to pull the user record back from the database.

Assuming that you are using session based login security (i.e. Security Assist) then you need to pull back the record based on the user that has logged in.

You then need to create the redirect based on the value of the T&Cs field. You can use the WA Server Redirect behaviour for this and then edit the trigger.

e.g

<?php
if($row_rsuser['tandc'] == "1"){
$WA_Redirect_URL = "test.php";
$WA_Redirect_KeepQS = false;
if ($WA_Redirect_URL != "") {
if ($WA_Redirect_KeepQS && $WA_Redirect_URL != "" && isset($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]) && $_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"] !== "") {
$WA_Redirect_URL .= ((strpos($WA_Redirect_URL, '?') === false)?"?":"&").$_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"];
}
header("Location: ".$WA_Redirect_URL);
}
}
?>

Basically, if the recordset goes in at the top of the page, and this sits under it, if the T&Cs field has a value of 1 it will redirect immediately to the test.php page.

Hope this helps

Cheers
Ian
