trouble with a login page not inserting rows to a table on successful login

trouble with a login page not inserting rows to a table on successful login

I am having trouble with a login page.
I have a site with 3 levels of security, (4 if you include superadmin)
Group admin, admin and member
I have created access rules and setup page access using the access pages manager, all working ok

The problem I am having is with the login page, not behaving as I expect.

My login page is based on the one created by PowerCMS builder, with the added user level, and also contains code to insert the memberid to the login table, whenever a member logs in successfully.

Regardless of who logs in, I want to redirect successful logins to the site home page, or to the previous url if they came via a link

I thought I had it working, but it seems the insert into the login table isn’t happening.

I dont follow the logic. What is the purpose behind inserting a record on login?

the client wants a popup message to appear on the home page whenever a member logs in, so that any news or other info pertinent to them - which has been added since they last logged in - is displayed in the pop-up window.

It also allows them to record which members are using the site regularly.

I can do this by recording the logins and logouts of every member

I'll need to troubleshoot directly, see the private message section.

I updated the webassist/securoty_assist/helper_php.php file to correct the problem.

Hi Jason,

the login table is now updated successfully, after you updated the helper_php.php file, and everything works as it should, except that I want to redirect successful logins to the site home page, or to the previous url if they came via a link

All successful logins are ALWAYS directed to the home page, they do not go to the previous url.

If I change the parameter in the post login server behavior to TRUE, the login is then redirected Ok, but the login table is no longer appended.

I think this is because the WA_AuthenticateUser() function takes the true parameter and redirects, before the insert record server behavior is triggered.

I have tried moving the insert record behavior to within the post login server behavior, but If I do this before the WA_AuthenticateUser() function is fired, the member id session value has not been retrieved.

I don't want to edit the helper_php.php page if possible, can you advise how I can overcome this issue ?

Thanks

I had to disable the redirect to previous URL to allow the insert to occur.

try adding the following code after the inert behavior:

php:
<?php

if (isset($_GET['accesscheck'])) {
    
header("Location: ".urldecode($_GET['accesscheck']));
}
?>

unfortunately, that doesn't work either.- is it because the WA_AuthenticateUser() function is doing the redirecting ?

Just a thought, if I create a new function, and base it on the WA_AuthenticateUser() function, but simplify it so I only create the session values, (I only need $_session ['memberid']), and remove the redirect, and trigger this function AND the insert record server behavior BEFORE the WA_AuthenticateUser() fuction is run, I guess it should work ?

Seems a bit clumsy, and I would be setting the session values again when I run WA_AuthenticateUser()
