Use the Security Assist wizard to create the user login, registration and profile pages.

if you have Security Assist 2 or data Bridge, the security assist wizard is under WebAssist -> Security Assist -> Create Security Pages

data assist

That's not what I'm trying to do, I want to let user create their own profile page like Facebook that you have your own pages...

After they created this profile I want to created a colum for me to make updates and only users that I allowed can see updates....

I will be posting update on user's profiles but all users have different updates I want to update on each user individual...

For example if I have 5 user on my website user number one will get from me updates that only user number one can see..

Please help me...

you would probably want to have a second table that you use to store these comments.

use a relational column to relate the comments to the user:

commentID - Primary Key
commentUserID - relates to the users.UserID column
comment text

then use data assist to create pages to mange the comments. In Data Assist, you can set the commentUserID column to be a Menu, and set it to dynamically use the Users table, use the Username for the label, and the UserID for the value.

this will allow you to select the appropriate user from a select list when adding the comments.

when a user logs in, their iD is stored in a session variable.

on the page where you show the comments, you can use a recordset that filters the commentUserID column on the session created by the login.

Re: data assist

Great, I will give a try. Thank you...

I have one more question...

If I used secured pages and I want to do free tryial to user, can I set a user-name or a password to expire within a giving day...

For example,

If I give to a user a username to login for just 30 days, can I set it to cancel the username after the 30days expire?

you would need to have a column in the user table for account type, lets say for example we name it regType and that we use 1 as the value for a trial account and 2 for the value of a regular account.

you would also need a column for registration date, set the data type for the regDate column to timestamp and the default value of the regDate column to "CURRENT_TIMESTAMP" this will store the current date in that column when a user registers

On the login page, edit the authenticate user behavior, on the Sessions tab, set the regDate and regType columns to store in session variables.

you can then create an authenticate user rule as:

Allow If
Value: click the lightning bolt icon and select the regType session variable
Criteria: =
Compare to: 2

Restrict IF

<?php echo (date("Y-m-d")); ?>

Criteria: >
Compare to:

<?php echo (date("Y-m-d"mktime(000date("m"strtotime($_SESSION['regDate'])),date("d"strtotime($_SESSION['regDate'])) + 30,date("Y"strtotime($_SESSION['regDate']))))); ?>

This rule will allow access if the account type is 2 (we use that for the regular user account). if the account type is 1 (a trial account), it will restrict access if the regDate session + 30 days is greater than the current date.
