Log-in/out through AJAX

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

A question regarding security/best-practice concerning a simple front-end login through AJAX calls. My plan is to use this kind of module inside a small AngularJS architecture to update the entire application when someone is logged in/out.

*

I've made a simple HTML form in which the user can login by typing his/her username and password in the corresponding fields. After submitting the form, these values are fetched with jQuery. Then an Ajax GET request is made with these values to a page which has access to the Processwire API. This page checks if these values (after sanitization) correspond to an existing user in the CMS.

If the user and password matches, the user is logged in, and a success message is being returned.

If the user and password mismatches, an error message is being returned.

*

I don't know much about encryption, therefore I highly doubt if this a 'safe' way of doing things. Hopefully someone can give me some pointers on this!

best,

berechar

      Hello there
      I need a field with realtime percent calculation (without page save)  with values from other fields in admin template. I think about jQuery with onChange methods on corresponding fields but this is not clear for me how to do this in module. Any help with some advice or example will be highly appreciated! 
      Thanks in advance!

      Greetings. I would like to restrict access to certain sections of my organization's ProcessWire site using pubcookie. We are rolling out Shibboleth authentication later this year but for now, it seems I can only make use of our institution's single sign-on routine by utilizing rules in an .htaccess file. 
      I am wondering if there is a way to ask PW to apply these rules to certain pages in the site, whether via template type or location in the page tree:
      AuthType UWNetID PubcookieAppID "MyApplication" require type staff faculty

      So I was going to build a todo tracking app for myself to test/broaden my knowledge of processwire, and so far it has been taxing 😓.  My Site structure is:
      - Project One - Phase One - Task - Task - Task - Phase Two - Task - Task - Task So far it was pretty easy, I can easily foreach through the Project and get the phases with their tasks. However, it gets a bit muddled when I have more than one project as I was trying to have a dashboard where the content switches out to the selected project as opposed to accessing each project via their own url. How would yall handle this?
      My next hurdle is each task has a select field (for project status) that I want to update via ajax (for the smooth transitioning).
      Scenario: You finish a task, change the option from "new" to "completed", and an onclick changes the status drop down background to green (which I have working), but then posts/saves a field on the backend to the new option.
       
      I have a page called "Actions" set up with url segments using
      if ($config->ajax && $input->urlSegment1 == 'change-status') { //save update field on admin } However, I am a little fuzzy on how to actually pass the current page along with the new selected status to actually update the page (task). I guess I am not very far into my endeavor. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      So I have a project where multiple pages are sending POST data to 1 single template page.  All was working well (well, at least with one ajax post), but now I have hit a stumbling block. I figured  the "best" way to handle the request were to use url segments and then use the following in the status page:
      if ($config->ajax && $input->urlSegment1 == 'add-bookmark') { // some code here } However, this doesnt seem to really work (as I assume the the request isnt being posted to /status/ but rather to /status/add-bookmark/). What is the best way to actually handle this?

      Currently, I have a page set up listing all child pages using a foreach loop and outputting some information (thus far, it is all gravy). However, I ran into a slight problem. I have a "button" on each item being rendered that when clicked needs to send the page id to another page for processing via ajax. I thought I could just save the item id like :
      <?php $itemId = $item->id; ?> And then encoding it below in my javascript:
      var itemId = <?php echo json_encode($itemId); ?>; var data = { itemId: itemId, }; $.ajax({ type: "POST", url: "/intra/status/", data: data, success: function(){ console.log(itemId); } }); However, it is only posting the last page's id rendered by the foreach. Have I just overlooked something simple on this?
