Possible bug?

Possible bug?

I used DataAssist to create pages for database entry and update. I then used SecurityAssist to grant access to those pages only to myself.

I had applied the access rule to those pages, then I had to remove it again, because there was an issue with LogIng. After the LogIn issue was resolved, I reapplied the access behavior.

After doing that, the pages did no longer display (they were blank).

I noticed that one line in the code had dropped to a lower spot, and after moving it up, the pages worked again.

This is the code that produced blank pages:
<?php require_once('../Connections/connSegufix.php'); ?>
<?php require_once("../WA_DataAssist/WA_AppBuilder_PHP.php"); ?>
<?php
if (!WA_Auth_RulePasses("Administrator")){
WA_Auth_RestrictAccess("../accessDenied.php");
}
?>
<?php require_once( "../WA_SecurityAssist/Helper_PHP.php" ); ?>

And the page worked again after moving the last line up, like this:
<?php require_once('../Connections/connSegufix.php'); ?>
<?php require_once("../WA_DataAssist/WA_AppBuilder_PHP.php"); ?>
<?php require_once( "../WA_SecurityAssist/Helper_PHP.php" ); ?>
<?php
if (!WA_Auth_RulePasses("Administrator")){
WA_Auth_RestrictAccess("../accessDenied.php");
}
?>

This may have just been some quirk you experienced, if you have error reporting turned on you should get a error about an undefined function in this case. It may have to do with the order you had applied them. If you come across this again make sure to take a look at the code on the page immediately after you first add the access rule to see if the include is in the proper place.

I hope I won't have to use the access pages manager again. If I come across this again, and the same thing happens, I will check immediately and let you know.
