failure to grasp a basic

failure to grasp a basic


I seem to have failed to grasp a basic of mysql etc.



I've added to the form several fields with drop down boxes. I've also added the fields to the users table.

I've also modified the state options by typing in UK counties and I've altered the telphone mask to UK format 00000 000000

Ok I fill in the form and all your supplied fields in the database are populated whereas mine are not :-(

I have the essential suite and the contact form and uers reg solution.

What controls adding the data to the database? is there a module I can add to make it easy or have I just missed the point entirely?

The registration page in User Registration solution pack was created using DataAssist to insert to information in the database.

before Proceeding, it would be a good idea to make a back up of the registration page.

First, you will need to modify the Users table in the database to add columns for the new form fields you have added. Also, you will need DataAssist installed to be able to modify the Insert Record behavior to store the information form the new form fields you have added.

In the Server behaviors list, double click the Insert record Server behavior to begin editing it. Select each of the new database columns you added and click the lightning bolt next to value and select the corresponding form element.

Thanks for the info I begin to see the way through.

Sounds like it would be worth my while getting the form designer extension to create the other forms I need.

Ideally I would like two user tables for this site one for models and one for photographers

I could then use the form builder to create another form

Good idea?

Sure you could use form builder to create you other forms, or you could create them using Dreamweaver.
