Security Assist Issues

Security Assist Issues

I have set up a demo site to experiment with
as I apply PowerCMS and Security Assist.

Here are some of the issues I am having.

On the RegistrationPage I am getting some issues.

When I go through the process of creating some test
accounts I get an error when I input first names less than
6 chars. If a user has a name like Jim or Chad an error
pops up.

When I change the field in Dreamweaver to 3 I get an error
saying that data is required in the firstname field even if a
name has been input.

Another error that come us is when I don't put a name in the UserGroupID.
The page resolves and shows PHP code that a user may/may not understand
suggests that a UserGroupID is required. This is showing up even though
there isn't a Spry Validation requirement.

What CSS documents attached to the forms will allow me to style the
forms? There are several different Style sheets attached. I tried to".
attach an addtional style sheet to the registration form to test out
some styling but that failed. Ironically, the style shows up in Dreamweaver
but not "live". And even when I detached the sheet the change still shows
up only in Dreamweaver.

when you run the security assist wizard, go to the Manage Pages tab. Click the pencil Icon next to Change Field Settings to change the validation requirements. this will allow you to set the minimum number of character for the fields in your registration form.

to edit this after the pages are created, select the field in design view, then click the blue bounding box, this will open the spry validation settings in the Property inspector.

The UserGroupID column should not be included in the registration form, when running the security assist wizard, you should edit the registration page to not include that field. In the database, that field should be set to have a default value of the lowest user group.

the css file that sets styles for from elements is located here:

see the following roadmap article for details on styling forms with css:
