Security Assist - details on setup

Re Security Assist:

1 - May I confirm? There can be many conditions, but there can be just one rule per page?

2 - Regarding the conditions:

Is there any reason to both "allow" and "deny" the various parties allowed and not allowed?
Or instead, "Allow" is all that is needed, at least for simple access control?

3 - Detail regarding login / logout:

A - Can I safely remove two code blocks that are not in fact used? Is there related code that then should also go?

[ For example, this code block:
<?php if(WA_Auth_RulePasses("Emailed password")){ // Begin Show Region ?>
<p>Password information emailed, please check your inbox</p>
<?php } // End Show Region ?> ]
[ And:
<?php if(WA_Auth_RulePasses("Successful update")){ // Begin Show Region ?>
<p>Registration completed successfully, please log in to access the site</p>
<?php } // End Show Region ?> ]

B - Can logout code be not necessarily on its own page (as generated initially), but rather be incorporated into something else? If so, any necessary precautions / what minimal code?

As always, thanks, David

1) yes, there can be many access rules defined, but only 1 rule can be applied to a page.

2) For simple access you really only need to allow if a condition is true.

for more restrictive access rules, you would use a mix of allow and deny conditions.

for an example, see the Double Opt in tutorial.

3A) Those code blocks relate the Emailed password and Successful update rules. you can safely remove them without needing to remove any other code.

3B) The logout behavior can be added to another page. If that page also has other behaviors on it, you may want to trigger the logout behavior on a URL variable
