login page

Hi everyone,

One question I have is we have an existing SQL database that has user names and passwords. In the ASP environment I would create a login form that would authenticate against the database and then create a session state that would collect information to use later in the site. Can someone point me to where can find out how to create a login page and sessions using an existing SQL database?

Hi bdsnv,

Dreamweaver has a built-in Server Behavior that does all of this for you.  Go to the Application Panel | Server Behavior Tab and add a server behavior.  You should see an option for Log In User.

Just follow the prompts and wizards and you will be all set.

Alternately, you can buy a third-party extension suite.  One of the better ones is made by Interakt:
