Problems with dynamic-pages
I think there are some problems using dynamic pages:

1) A user who runs registration-routine must visit
the validation-site to enter the code. After that
he comes to the success-site, but there are links
to static-pages in the navigation-bar.

2) To have a backup I need to run build, is it right?
But Idon┤t want to build static pages! What┤s to do?

In answer to question one:

Just because you use page.cgi doesn't mean that all the links in your templates magically change to page.cgi.

You have to edit the links manually.

Ok, I have the navigation-bar-links in header.txt

Why do they show the right links on other sites?

<a class="menulink" href="<%build_root_url%>">

Do I need to use "http://.....page.cgi" instead the global?

No you can still use the global but you would need....

<a href="<█_cgi_url%>/page.cgi">Home</a>

......and then in the query string you can specify which templates to use etc....

(oops - the forum messes up the tag - it is db)

Hi,

In anticipation of that happening I added the note to the end of the post saying that the forum messes up the db bit but when I posted it, it was normal so I edited the post and removed the note and submitted it again and it went all funny - I think the computer gods are taking the mick.

(See why I had trouble in those other posts now when you told me I was wrong)

You can see the weird character too right?...Its not just me is it?

Hi,

1. Go to page.cgi?d=1

Setting the d=1 (dynamic=1) turns on dynamic mode and the user will stay in dynamic mode. However, you may not want this. A user can log in, but stay in static mode, however when he visits add.cgi, then the user is still logged in.

2. Go to Database->Import/Export and you can create a backup file from there.

Cheers,

Alex
