Creating Static User Accounts

Top  Previous  Next


The dbQwikSite Security Model allows you to specify user accounts either at design time, or to have the information read from the database when the user accesses your pages.  The design time user accounts are referred to as static accounts in that they are set up once at design time and do not change.  This model can be useful for a site with a limited number of users or one that requires an "admin" function - ie. you want to prevent your visitors from accessing some pages, but you don't need the added task of managing database security tables.


To Create Static User Account:


1. Open Page Settings Dialog Box ( Page Setting > Page Properties > General)


2. In the Use users account from section, click on Use users account from table below radio button




3. Add the User name, Password, and access levels.


Note: You can navigate and manipulate the table using this database navigation bar:




The functions from left to right are:

First Record                - Go to the top of the list.

Previous Page        - Move back one page.

Previous Record        - Move back one record.

Last Record                - move to the bottom of the list (the last record).

Insert                - Add a new record.

Delete                - Delete the currently selected record.
