Creating additional Sessions from Login page
This Tutorial shows you how to create extra Sessions from the Macromedia Login behaviour, with just a couple of lines of coding.

Whats included

3 ASP pages
1 Access 2000 database

What you need

Dreamweaver MX and above IIS or PWS
Access 2000 or above


You will need to feel comfortable creating an Access database (or your flavour of db) and working with simple hand coding of ASP pages.

The Connection string is a DSN-less, so you will need to change it to reflect your hard drive. Simply open the NewSession.asp page in the Connection folder and change the string to the path of the database on your hard drive.

Send Email when someone enters data into your database

Recordset Paging with Page Numbers
First I didn't write this but found it on a site that no longer exists and I wanted to put it up because many people have this question and most people answer it by telling them to buy an extension. You should not have to spend $40 in order to do this in my opinion.
Show Records until a Certain date
This short tutorial will show you how to use a quick WHERE statement to filter your records so it only shows whilst the date column in the table is either greater or equal to the current day.
Convert a Date to ISO format

This short tutorial will show you how to take any date, either in a database or passed in your page, and split it up and reassemble in the ISO format.

This can be very helpful in querying against your database, as it does not require the database to be set to your localised language and thus Date format, I have also found Access plays a lot nicer when the Date is in ISO format.

Create a Login page and Userdetails table
This Tutorial walks you through setting up a database table to house your Users login details, and set up a Login page within Dreamweaver.

It also included details on Restricting access to pages within your site to only those who have logged in via your Login page.
Set LocalID to UK
This small piece of code is used to set the locality ID to UK to ensure dates and other regional data is set correctly. produces dates as dd/mm/yyyy if you enter Now() or Date()
Dynamically redirect your Login page

This Tutorial enables you to use 1 login page for sites with areas restricted to certain users.

By using a column in your database, and a small piece of coding to add to the login script, you can move your users dynamically to the appropriate folder for their access level.
