UserRegistrationsolution Pack first name on log in

Hello I am trying to display the first name of the person instead of the e-mail. I have tried multiple ways including of of which was described previously by Jason Byrnes webassist support tech. I have tried this: <?php echo "Welcome, ".$row_welcome['UserFirstName']; ?> and this: <?php @sesssion_start(); ?>
<?php if(isset($_SESSION['UserFirstName'])) { ?>
Welcome <?php echo $_SESSION['UserFirstName']; ?>
<?php } ?> but I get a huge error code on the webpage. I'm using Wamp as a test server right now. Is there an easier way to be able to display users name after the person have logged in? Thank you.

first, on the login page, you need to edit the code to store the user name in a session.


find the following code:

php:
"sessionColumns" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"UserID".$WA_Auth_Separator."UserEmailVerified".$WA_Auth_Separator."UserEmail"),
    "sessionNames" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"UserID".$WA_Auth_Separator."UserEmailVerified".$WA_Auth_Separator."UserEmail"),



and change it to:

php:
"sessionColumns" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"UserID".$WA_Auth_Separator."UserEmailVerified".$WA_Auth_Separator."UserEmail".$WA_Auth_Separator."UserFirstName"),
    "sessionNames" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"UserID".$WA_Auth_Separator."UserEmailVerified".$WA_Auth_Separator."UserEmail".$WA_Auth_Separator."UserFirstName"),




then you can use this code to show the user session:

php:
<?php 
@session_start();
echo(isset(
$_SESSION['UserFirstName'])?$_SESSION['UserFirstName']:""); 
?>

name display in log in page

Hey i have tried to do this to display the first name on the log in page but did not work, this is what I did: find the following code:

PHP:
---------
"sessionColumns" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"UserID".$WA_Auth_Separator."UserEmailVerified".$WA_Auth_Separator."UserEmail"),
"sessionNames" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"UserID".$WA_Auth_Separator."UserEmailVerified".$WA_Auth_Separator."UserEmail"),
---------
and change it to:

PHP:
---------
"sessionColumns" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"UserID".$WA_Auth_Separator."UserEmailVerified".$WA_Auth_Separator."UserEmail".$WA_Auth_Separator."UserFirstName"),
"sessionNames" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"UserID".$WA_Auth_Separator."UserEmailVerified".$WA_Auth_Separator."UserEmail".$WA_Auth_Separator."UserFirstName"),
---------

then you can use this code to show the user session:

PHP:
---------
<?php
@session_start();
echo(isset($_SESSION['UserFirstName'])?$_SESSION['UserFirstName']:"");
?>
--------- Is there another way to make this work or what am I doing wrong.

first name on registration

Hey I got it to work, what was happening was that I needed to log out and log back in to see the results, i dont know if it is due to that Im using wamp as a server tester. Anyway I love it the way it is working, but I also would like to be able to have some thing like this if the user does not have a name on the registration form. Hello (Please register Here) so that when the person would register then this would be removed and then the name would appear, the thing is that Im not sure that the person have to be register before being able to log in, I bought the registration solution pack, anyway thanks for all the help.

you could use an if statement to check if the Username is blank:

php:
<?php 

@session_start();
if(isset(
$_SESSION['UserFirstName']) && $_SESSION['UserFirstName'] == "") {
echo(
"Please update your profile");
?>

You need to edit the Security Assist Authenticate user server behavior, on the session tab, click the plus button and select the user first name column to have it saved to a session on login.


NOTE: in the future, please don't paste the code for you page into the message, instead attach the php page as an attachment.

you cant, that is the problem with the back button, it does not reload the page, it loads the page from the browser history. don't rely on the back button.
