Activation Link That User Will Press To Activate An Account

Doing an activation link that the user will press to activate an account. What i wanted to ask is, the link will go to a page and it will hit the sql server to find out if it's valid.Now what i'm afraid of is that some boot can send thousands of get's in the page, forcing the sql to be active with useless data. So is there a way to protect against this? I was thinking the "lock ip" trick i did to stop users trying to log in to a site many times. Any other suggestions are welcome. Some other think also.I use a try catch in case of a get with not or wrong data.Will this affect the site in general? I mean i don't really care if someone post an invalid get and wait for the try catch, but does this affect the performance of the site in general or a session takes the memory by default and ignore any try catching that s stalling the page.

Web Forms :: How To Send User Confirmation Email After Registration With Activation Link
I want to send a confirmation email to the user after they register to my website. I am using CreateUserWizard of .NET and I use C#.

My idea is after users register they get an email with a link. If they click the link, they will come to an activation page. I have done this so far:




After Guid userId = (Guid)user.ProviderUserKey;

I am very confused and not sure what to do. I understand that i need to email an url with the userID to user's email upon registration, but how to do this, and when user clicks that url in that email, how that url will automatically come to activation page?

Security :: Finding Tutorials For Registering And Sending An Activation Link To The User's Email Address
I program in vb

I was wondering if someone can direct me to a good quality tutorial on the process of registering and sending an activation link to the user's email address. I can't seem to find any useful tutorials online!

Email Newly Registered Users An Activation Email With An Activation Link
I've been programming with VB for a little over 2 years, however have never had any formal education. So the extent of my education is as follows:

I want to know how to do a mouseover for an image on my webpage, I look online for someone who's done it in VB and I try and duplicate their code and then play with it until I get the results I want.

So as you can see there is a wealth of VB coding that simply escapes me because I just haven't desired to include it or needed to include different aspects of VB in my programs / web developments. What I want now is big enough that so far (one week of online searches) I've uncovered no site or forum that has given me a tutorial on how to go about implementing what I want into myMicrosoft Web Development project. The old sources for information are only good for one or two aspects of a coding procedure, not an entire overhaul of my current .aspx files. Not to mention a bias towards hard coding in pure <html>, I get a lot of that when someone doesn't have the patients to address my question.

When I created my new project it automatically populated an Accounts folder with a Changepassword.aspx, Changepasswordsuccess.aspx, registration.aspx, and Login.aspx. I've successfully prevent the program from logging in the user after they register with a simple " ' " before an authentication line in the registration.vb code; however, the login.vb code and the code is simple beyond me, and I've yet to find a site that spells it out for me.

I've created an online test. However, the intent is to have the users only take the test once, thus after they register with their email address I want my site to send them an email with an account activation link. Once they click on this link by visiting their inbox they can then take the test.

Reapter And Updatepanel / Every Time The User Press One Of The Rpt Link Buttons A Different Message Is Display In The Content Window?
I have a repeater that creates a list of links buttons and a main content window, every time the user press one of the rpt link buttons a different message is display in the content window.i wanted to use ajax for this task, to accomplish this my first thought was to surround the main content window with update panel control and dynamically add triggers to each of the rpt link buttons, i tried that for a while and since it didn't work i tried another way, i added another update panel around the repeater and it worked like a charm....but i have this feeling that i made it in a "dirty" way... is this bad practice? should i try harder and add each of the repeater link buttons a trigger to the main content window update panel?

C# - Validate User Account Via Email Link?
Really sorry because this is almost "send me the code" - although really it's "send me a link to another discussion"

I am setting up a .net membership system and need to validate users from the email address they provide via a "click here to validate your account" type link.

Just wondered if anyone knew of any good tutorials or posts out there about this? I have searched for about an hour and can't find anything - hence me asking the question.

Security :: Activating New Account After New User Clicks Link In Email?
Could anyone provide guidance about the common technique ofsending an email to the new user -> new user clicks the link in the email -> and then theaccount becomes activated and ready for use?

Currently using theCreateUserWizard control in .NET v4 and a Membership db in SQL Server 2008. If I need to do this via custom code and not the CreateUserWizard that's fine. Would be nice to see expert thoughts on this common, enterprise quality, new account validation technique.

The link below outlines a technique for sending a confirmation email but does not include activation:[URL]

1. I need to load a user control on link click event of a link button during postback of aspx page.

2. On button click event of a save button on that aspx page, I need to read the selected values from that user control on further postback.

If I write the loadcontrol code in link_click event, the control is not recognized at all in the button_click event. When I shift it to page_init and execute only during not postback, the user control loads with default values.

Pdf Will Load If Use 'save Link As' But Not If User Clicks On The Link?
After submitting a form, the user is presented with a link to a pdf document. The link is straight to the document, it is not streamed.

If the user right-clicks and chooses 'save link as,' the document saves and opens fine. However, if the user just clicks on the link, the browser takes a very long time to respond (I'm going to guess it's 3 minutes) and then adobe reader gives the following error:

"the file is damaged and could not be repaired"

This is in Chrome v5, ASP.NET 3.5 and the link is returned inside an UpdatePanel.

VS 2008 Creating User Account Policy ?
I would like develop an application written in ASP.NET which include an option to configure user accounts in such a way that each user account can be freely assigned to a different module to which it will has access.

So, for example, I would have one table in a database that maps user to modules.

In ASP.NET there is the whole mechanism of roles, but his assumptions are slightly different -> Here you need to centrally configure finished profiles. This can be circumvented in such a way that each application module is a separate role. And for one user can be assigned multiple roles.

But whether such a method is elegant? Should I do it differently?

How To Display Infomation Onto The Application About The User Account
I have a website that has a login (Like most websites xD) This then obviosly fetches information from a database and loads it on the page. (EG. Welcome "Display Name")

I have designed and coded a application for my site you can use the features from my web on your desktop, I have added a login (required to use the application) and a register. Both login and register work (Fetching information from the database and writing to the database).

Now I have those out of the way I'm now onto the main part of my program which is to display infomation onto the application about the user account. This could include editing the user account, uploading content to the website or viewing content from the website.. (Sorry but I'd like to explain how I have certain things to get the point across clearly )

Anyway how would I create a sort of session? Like PHP, once you login you can grab information from the database based on the information submitted from the login which was fetched from the database.. When the user presses login on my application it brings them to the main part of the application but I'm now unsure how to load variables and/or session data.

(Side note, I have also sha encryption on my website in the register/login, at the moment VB reads the information from the textbox as normal text is there anyway I can get it to read the sha encryption? and also insert data into the database with this encryption?) - This question is optional.
