Frustrated with WA extensions

Frustrated with WA extensions

I am so frustrated with software extensions that are supposed to make your life easier, when all they do is add more headaches.

I'm using SecurityAssist and DataAssist for the basic login functions, password update and recovery. But yet, SA does not integrate with Universal Email to send formatted email and when I try to use this instead, it causes the DA update functions to not work properly. It's a round and round situation with nothing working right because there is no product integration.

Trying to use CSS Menu Writer with CSS Sculptor & Site Assist Professional for layout is not as simple as it is made out to be. Then try using DataAssist, do you think CSS Form builder is integrated with that?? Nope! And how about eCart? No CSS integration.

It's like there are all these products that are supposed to work together, but they don't. And trying to figure out all the documentation and tech notes and which products to use first is just nearly enough to kill you.

I really don't know what to do. I just feel like trying to piece this puzzle together is more work than actually learning the proper way to code the site from scratch using CSS and Jquery.

Integrating the products together is something we are moving twords. It is in our plans for future product upgrades.

lets start with one problem first, then move on to the others.

Lets look at using security assist together with Universal Email. You say adding universal email breaks the data assist update. SI would need to look at the code to be sure, but one thing to check first of is the order of the server behaviors and check that only the last server behavior in the list has a redirect applied to it.

If the email code is before the DataAssist code, and the email code is set to redirect after sending the email, the redirect will occur before the update can.

If you cannot spot the problem, send us a copy of the page so we can take a look.

What is the problem you are having trying to use CSS Menu Writer with CSS Sculptor & Site Assist Professional for layout? What specifically is the issue you are experiencing.

We can try to help if you provide us details.

For using CSS Form builder with DataAssist pages, see the "Modifying an existing form with CSS Form Builder" tutorial on the CSS Form builder support page:
