SA Forms edited with CSS Forms

Hello -

1- I need to create all the forms for the registration/login functions.
2- I need the login form to show users' all validation errors - 'please enter a password.' ...
3- I need to email a new password.

I'm using dynamic PHP server fields.

What is the best sequence to create these pages and can I use instructions specific to the sequence you suggest?

Thanks in advance, rog

ps. I get errors using both -
-the CSS Form Builder to update the login.php
-Universal Email to replace the EmailPW.php

You should definitely be running the SecurityAssist wizard first, then after the pages are created you can edit them with CSS Form Builder and Universal Email.

The idea is that on the login page you will modify the existing form. Once you have done this you should edit the Authenticate user server behavior to ensure that the bindings for the username and password are set correctly to the form fields.

As for the email password you should be able to add in a new Universal Email server behavior to this page. What are the errors you are getting when you try to do either of these?

First create the pages using Security Assist.

then modify the form using form builder.
See the "Modifying an existing form with CSS Form Builder" tutorial on the how to section of the form builder support page:

for information on adding validation see the following:
Using CSS Form Builder -> Editing Group Contents -> Customizing a set's error message in the help documentation:

If you are getting an error message, please post the exact text of the error so we can have an iddea of what is going wrong.

Javascript Errors

Hello Brian and Eric. Thanks.

I was getting errors that couldn't find a password field to validate. Also, Javascript errors similar to the posts just before this.

The CSS Form Builder instructions to modify login.php shows two dynamic fields - username and password. The login.php created in the wizzard had one server behavior not two fields(maybe not the problem?).

For now, I restored from backup. Before I delete the wizzard forms, and start over - what files do I need to delete to rid my site of the Javascript, form and other errors?

Thanks again - rog

It is hoard to tell what is going wrong with out specifics.

I need to know the specific errors you are getting. the exact test of the errors.

I'm sorry, but "Also, Javascript errors similar to the posts just before this" doesn't really tell me anything useful. Which post before this?

You dont need to delete the wizard forms, you can edit the existing forms using CSS foerm builder.

In design view, select the first text box, then in the tag inpector, select the Form tag. With the form tag selected, go to Insert -> Web Assist -> CSS Form Builder -> Insert Form. This will import your selected form into the CSS Form builder wizard for editing.
