Developer Not Designer

by supervivid In reply to Hobby Web Developer, Web ...

<strong>9th August 05<br />
<br />
Today, I had a meeting with the Board. We decided on a
template which is interesting and not too complicated for me. Yes, I
admit, I am a developer, not a designer. Doing graphics is just not my
cup of coffee.<br />
<br />
And I have a new deadline to meet. The first target will be, to produce
a full front page. All graphics and content to be in position and ready.<br />
<br />
The template comes with graphics that do not require much adjustment.
But I'm thinking, how am I going to incorporate flash. The next best
thing to flash which I know is Swish, simple and effective. Forget the
scripting, I'll be doing it according to the timeline. Dev NOT Des.<br />
<br />
For now, I'll just produce the skeleton of what the scripting will be
like. Build a new database. Connect all tables together and produce a
sample.<br />
<br />
Wish me the best.<br />
<br />
PS: I don't know how long this project will take to work.<br />

Problems After Problems

by supervivid In reply to Hobby Web Developer, Web ...

<p>It's been a while.</p>
<p>After a few weeks of debugging and testing, i still couldn't get myself to log into my site. I tried using vAuthenticate by Vincent Ryan Ong which was free.<br />I used the scripts before without any major problems. But now after scripting and double checking all the paths and password, I still can't understand why I can't even log into my site.</p>
<p>So I scrapped vAuthenticate and go for PHP Login and Redirect v1.3 by Michael Dolan. I configured exactly on the readme file. Still... I couldn't get acess into the members page. And so I checked all the files, links and finally.... database. It turned out to be the database problem.</p>
<p>I used MD5 to secure passwords adn store them into the database. My mistake was, I allocated ONLY 10 characters for the password storage when I really need more to store. So there it is. A simple problem causing a massive problem.</p>
<p>For now everthing is going fine until there is one part I still need to reconsider.</p>
<p>Is it better to revert back to the old script or stay with the new one?</p>
<p>For Login and Redirect, it uses session variables, while for vAuthenticate, it uses connection oriented. So I'm wondering which will be easier, because I need to change values on the fly most of the time. I appreciate any suggestions for the most appropriate script.</p>
<p>Have a nice day!</p>
