Letting users choose a user name and password
You add an HTML form to the registration page to let users select a user name and password (if applicable).
To let users choose a user name and password:
- Create a new page (File > New) and lay out your registration page using the Dreamweaver design tools.
- Add an HTML form by placing the insertion point where you want the form to appear and selecting Form from the Insert menu.
An empty form is created on the page. You may have to enable Invisible Elements (View > Visual Aids > Invisible Elements) to see the forms boundaries, which are represented by thin red lines.
- Name the HTML form by clicking the
<form> tag at the bottom of the Document window to select the form, opening the Property inspector (Window > Properties), and entering a name in the Form Name text box.
You dont have to specify an
method attribute for the form to tell it where and how to send the record data when the user clicks the Submit button. The Insert Record server behavior sets these attributes for you (see Updating the table of users in the database).
- Add text fields (Insert > Form > Text Field) to let the user enter a user name and password.
The form can also have more form objects to record other personal data.
You should add labels (either as text or images) beside each form object to tell users what they are. You should also line up the form objects by placing them inside an HTML table. For more information on form objects, see Inserting HTML form objects.
- Add a Submit button to the form (Insert > Form > Button).
You can change the label of the Submit button by selecting the button, opening the Property inspector (Window > Properties), and entering a new value in the Label text box.
The next step in creating a registration page is to add the Insert Record server behavior to insert records in the table of users in the database. See Updating the table of users in the database.
