Login Success and Failure Message in Same Div on index.php

Login Success and Failure Message in Same Div on index.php

Do you know how I can have a login success message (Welcome! {username}) and a login failed message (Login Failed. Please try again) displayed in the same area? (Just above login username and password fields in my case.) I tried WebAssist> Framework Builder> Plugin> Insert Plugin> trigger> Rule: Log in Success and thought I would load login_success.php page as my Plug- In Source, but that generates an error. Conflicts somehow with my successfully working login using separate pages. (login_success.php and login_failed.php) Ideally, I'd like the Welcome! {username} to just display right in the same exact place over the username field.

WebAssist> Framework Builder> Plugin> Insert Plugin> trigger> Rule: Log in Success

login_success.php and login_failed.php in respective Divs LogInSuccessMessage, LogInFailureMessage, etc.

Thank you!

dont use plugins for this, use the Security Assist Show region behavior.

Add the login success message where you would like it to show, select the message text and go to then WebAssist -> Security Assist -> Show region. from the list of access rules select the "Logged into <Your user table>" rule (where <Your user table> is the name of your users table.

do the same for the failure message, using the Failed log in access rule.

Thanks Jason,

It still rolls over to my 'signed_in.php' page, the way I did it.

I put:

<p class="WelcomeTextUsername"><span class="MemberTextLoggedIn">member:</span> <?php echo $_SESSION['MM_Username']; ?>
</p>

Inside:

<div id="login_logged_in">
<?php if(WA_Auth_RulePasses("Logged in to users")){ // Begin Show Region ?>
<p class="WelcomeTextUsername"><span class="MemberTextLoggedIn">member:</span> <?php echo $_SESSION['MM_Username']; ?>
</p>
<?php } // End Show Region ?>
</div>


Thanks!

I can just use the Webassist Wizard pages and modify them, rather than using my working LogIn and adding individual Webassist features. I have the show region areas in and showing, How can I <?php echo $_SESSION['MM_Username']; ?> in the show region area?

If I try and put that line of code to echo Username in Show region, instead of the Anonymous Text Line "You are now logged in" it now just prints out raw code exactly as you see it above. No Username from users table in db.

Thanks!

edit the security assist authenticate user server behavior and make sure there is no value for the success and failure redirects.

the MM_Username session is not one created by security assist so will not work. also, to show a session, you need to be on a php page.

to show the user name, go to the session tab of the security assist authenticate user server behavior, click the plus button and select the username column. Then place your cursor in the div where the user name should show, go to the bindings tab, expand the session collection, select the username session and click the bind button.

In security assist authenticate user server behavior [General Tab] I chose Trigger> Rule: LogIn success. (Leave the rest empty.)

In [Database Tab] I chose my connection, and 'users' table, hit '+' sign chose userName, hit lightning bolt for value, chose Session> userName

In [Session Values Tab] I hit '+' sign chose userName column which gives a Session Name of userName.

Go to Bindings> select the username session and click the insert button.

Hit O.K. button for all, preview in browser and see a completely blank page.



Thanks

the trigger for the authenticate use server behavior should be the submit button pressed, or a form post. the authenticate user behavior preforms the login and set the login success or failure, so using the login success as the trigger is circular logic.

Thank you.

Can you think of any reason why this would not print out username?

<?php if(WA_Auth_RulePasses("Log in success")){ // Begin Show Region ?>
<p>You have been logged in:&nbsp;<?php echo $_SESSION['UserName']; ?></p>
<?php } // End Show Region ?>

Just shows "You have been logged in: " with blank, white space after it.
(No, username)

I checked Column Name Capitals/ Spelling. All looks good.

For Trigger, as suggested, I chose:
Button: LogIn_submit pressed.

does the login page save a UserName session in the authenticate user behavior?

add the following to the page to dump the entire session contents:

<pre><?php var_dump($_SESSION); ?></pre>

That (<pre><?php var_dump($_SESSION); ?></pre>) just brings up this in <body>:

array(2) {
["WAENCRYPTEDRETURNUSED"]=>
bool(false)
["WAENCRYPTEDRETURNSUCCESS"]=>
bool(false)
}

This is in <head> regarding your question about 'Authenticate':

WA_AuthenticateUser($WA_Auth_Parameter);
}

if(isset($_POST["LogIn_submit"]) || isset($_POST["LogIn_submit_x"])){
$WA_Auth_Parameter = array(
"connection" => $myconnectionname,
"database" => $database_mydbname,
"tableName" => "users",
"columns" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"UserName"),
"columnValues" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"".$_SESSION['UserName'] .""),
"columnTypes" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"text"),
"sessionColumns" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"UserID".$WA_Auth_Separator."UserName"),
"sessionNames" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"UserID".$WA_Auth_Separator."UserName"),
"successRedirect" => "",
"failRedirect" => "",
"gotoPreviousURL" => FALSE,
"keepQueryString" => FALSE
);

WA_AuthenticateUser($WA_Auth_Parameter);
}

I just used the Standard, Security Assist> Create Security Pages> Simple LogIn.

It created the pages that work great. I just would like the username to show when logged in.

I have not modified anything to original pages ulness I've been told to.

Thanks!
