Security Assist advice needed
Hi, I am trying to create a multi-level access to my admin area that I am creating.
I want to create access where 1 see restricted content, and 2 sees all content. I have created admin access through the wizard, but I have no idea of how to edit the resultant rules to allow for multi-level admins. I know how to do it with Dreamweaver's security access wizards, and I often end up just removing WA's version and reverting to DW's, but integration isn't as seamless. I'm confused as to how I can get this in place and was hoping for some advice. I've looked for guidance in the help file, but it only tells me the function of a particular part of the wizards rather than how to achieve what I need to achieve.
I have the rules created by the wizard which are 'Failed log in', 'Log in success', 'Logged in to tbl_admin' and 'Validated form'. I've been looking at the rule 'Logged in to tbl_access', but don't understand how to amend this so I can allow restricted access if a user = 1, or full access if a user = 2. I don't also understand how this rule will then differentiate from restricted and full access when I apply the WA Show Region. Do I create a new rule to run alongside the existing one? If so, how do I then add both rules to a page to ensure that access is granted to both levels of user rather than just the one?
With DW's security access, it's a simple case of declaring '1,2' as the info to check against for all to see the restricted content, and then declaring '2' to see all. I'm also confused that I can only have 1 allow if in a rule, and I''m not sure what to compare to as the field is blank!
Sorry for the long explanation of my confusion, but I would like some guidance on how to use this facility properly without having to dump it again and use DW's because I've destroyed the log in functionality through experimentation!
