League Members Database

League Members Database
I wish to use DBMan to develop a league/clan database. I want members to be able to signup, create and modify only their own record. I think I've got that much working ok.

I want to limit members to a single record only, eg.

How can I limit them to only being able to create a single record?

Also, the DB_Key needs to be unique? Can I have DBMan auto-generate a numerical key that is unique (and uneditable by members) to meet that requirement? (as none of the other fields will be unique).

I get the feeling these questions are likely FAQs, but I can't find the answers.

Check out the Unofficial DBMAN FAQ web site listed in the DBMAN section of the Resources section.

BTW: There are also many threads for establishing member databasesm with DBMAN in the DBMAN forums.

To limit one records to per member, go to the resources page in this site and look for a mod called limit records. There are many permutations available and you should be able to find one that suit your needs. To make that DB key uneditable, the only way i know is to have it as a hidden field. If you want to display the key but make it uneditable, you still need to make it hidden but you can add the variable $db_key to your html.pl file at the appropriate subroutines.

I hope this helps.
