Title: @1 Personal Memoranda: Frequently-asked questions
Please check this section before you email us for technical help.
Can I use limiters directly in links? For example, a link that displays all records that have the word "xxxx" in the yyyy field?
Yes. Please see the FAQ for @1 Links Submission and Approval System III. They work similarly.
I believe I've installed the script correctly but whenever I try to enter something I get an "incorrect password" error. I've double checked the script and it does indeed have the password I am using.
By default all action URLs in the forms that come with the script in the zip file are pointing to UPOINT's demo script. Have you changed them so that they are pointing to your own script? There may be more than one form in the HTML page.
Can I eliminate the a field?
If you do not want a field, just delete the input box from the admin form. Since input to certain fields might be required by default, you might have to disable the input checking. Open the script and go to section "#R4". Go to the one for a particular field and follow the instruction there to make the input for that field optional. After that, delete the same field too from the user search form.
Input to some fields are required by default. How do I make them optional?
Go to section "#R4" in the script and see the instruction there.
Can I rename a field, such as Name?
Yes. Open all the HTML forms and the script and replace the word Name with another name such as Surname. Please make sure that the new name is only ONE word. Do not replace it with a two-word (or more) name such as Your Family Name. Also, when you search and replace, please make sure that you turn on the case-sensitive feature and turn off the "whole word" feature.
If you really need to change it to another name with more than one word, it is still possible. But you have to be very very careful. The trick is to replace with Your_Family_Name. This is because it will be used as variables such at $Your_Family_Name (blanks in variables will produce execution errors).
I would like to divide each record into two sections. The result will first show only the brief particulars. Upon clicking a "View Full Profile" button, the full details will then be shown in new window.
First of all, backup the script and rename the backup copy to myprofile2.cgi. Go to Step K15 in myprofile.cgi and modify this section (or delete anything you do not want to be displayed in the brief description).
Then, upload the backup copy to the same directory as myprofile.cgi. Chmod to 755. This copy shall produce the full details results.
Place the following codes at the end of Step K15 in myprofile.cgi. You can replace the Name field with another field if you think the search will give more accurate result. Similarly, you can use more than one field:
<FORM action=myprofile2.cgi method=post target=\"_blank\">
<INPUT type=hidden name=Name value=\"$Name\">
<INPUT type=submit value=\"View Full Profile\">
* Please note that you must be reasonably familiar with HTML and Perl before you modify the script. We do not provide further technical support regarding this modification.
