no redirect to login AND login info on results page

no redirect to login AND login info on results page

2 questions in one here -
Insert and Results pages should be restricted unless user is logged in. I need to redirect them if they are not logged in. Had it working at one point so I know it can be done. Just messed it up somewhere along the line and I've gone through these wizards so darn many times, I don't know what I'm doing anymore. Maybe I missed something but I didn't find instructions on setting up Access Rules. I was just sort of winging it. I even went thru the wizard one more time before sending this and I still don't have it.

2nd thing - I want the username (preferably) or loginID to show on Results page. Those fields are in my Login table and not the Orders table which is displayed in Results page. I used the binding for LoginID (only one I had to choose from) in the page but it changes every record in the Results page. In other words, if loginID is 29, it looks like every record was inserted by user 29. If I login as user 34, every record was inserted by user 34. Obviously it is not pulling that info from database. So I'm doing this wrong. I don't want the bindings? What do I want? Can I do this or do I have to join these 2 tables somehow first? As you can tell, I know just enough to be dangerous here but not enough to do this totally on my own. Thanks so much for the help!

I think that would be easiest. I always build for the future. Once you have the logic down, it's always easier to add to a table than to re-write code.

Update: I'm not sure exactly what you're referring to here. As I remember the tutorial uses session variables if that's what you mean.

The tutorial has you setup the session = to a number (3, 2, 1). What I was looking for in the lightening bolt were the fields in my tables but I couldn't find that. I had been in the right place even before I wrote here, I just wasn't finding what I was looking for.

So is there no way to set the session (login or username) = the login or username from my table? I'd like to use username but could go with loginID if I have to.

That would solve my problems with returning that in the Results table as well. I tried to SELECT username FROM Login and then echo username in the output. But that didn't work either. Not getting an error message so my syntax is ok, but I get blank.

I know I did something like this years ago in ASP. It's just been so long and it's not like that code would help me with this anyway.

Any other thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

1) You have changed the LoginRequired rule incorrectly.

It should be configured as :
Allow If
Value: <?php echo $_SESSION['loginID']; ?>
Critatia: <>
Compare To: <Blank> - leave the compare to field blank, no value.

2) To display the logged in users user name, you will need to modify the login page.

Double click the Security Assist Authenticate user server behavior. O nthe third page of the server behavior wizard, you can select database columns to store in session variables. Select the user name session variable.

To display it on a page, drag the session variable binding to the page.

If you display this variable on the results page, it will look like all orders belong to that user until you filter the results on the logged in user.

See the eCart "How to create an Order History page" tutorial on the How To Section of the eCart support page:
