Security Assist - Creating advanced access rules

I am trying to create a "Trial Membership" for my client where we would like to allow a user to register, and then be granted access for 14 days. After 14 days I would like their access to be denied automatically.

I was thinking that I could add a registrationdate field to my user database, but not sure how to create an access rule that would make the comparison with the current date and registration date and validate that value with the trial membership length.

You will need a registrationDate column in the users table

set the default value for the registration date to:

when a new users is registered, it will automatically store the registration date in the format:

on the login page, edit the Security Assist authenticate user behavior, on the sessions tab, make note of the user ID sesson name that already exists, and click the plus button to add the registration date column to be stored as a session

in the security assist rule will use the date() and mktime() php functions to convert the current date to a time stamp, and convert the registration date to a timestamp with 14 days added

set the rule up as:

Restrict IF
Value: Click the lightning bolt icon and select the user ID Session
Criteria: =
Compare to: Leave this blank

Allow IF
Value: enter the following code:

<?php echo (mktime(000date("m"strtotime($_SESSION['regDate'])), date("d"strtotime($_SESSION['regDate'])) + 14date("Y"strtotime($_SESSION['regDate'])))); ?>

this assumes the session for the registration date is "regDate".
Criteria: =>
Compare to: enter the following code:

<?php echo (mktime(000date("m"), date("d"), date("Y"))); ?>
