Full Article Attached New MozillaZine Member Area

Saturday January 2nd, 1999

UPDATE BELOW! (1/3/98)

MozillaZine now has a member area, and a number of other new features!

Membership in mozillaZine is free, and confidential. Your information is displayed only if you specifically want it displayed.

To read more about the membership, and what it offers you, click "Full Article" below.

To sign up, just click "members" on the navbar at right. All that we require is a valid email address to confirm the account. Please note that if you enter a bogus email address, or an email address that you don't have access to, you will not be able to validate your account.

If you find any bugs, please submit them here: Don't post them in the forum, please!

UPDATE!If you created a bio page, and were wondering why it didn't show up, it was because a slight change I made to the template was not uploaded properly. To fix the problem, go to the members area, edit your bio page, and just click the "Alter Account" button. Your page should generate properly. Sorry!

Also, we've created a new option in the members area for people who don't believe they've received a validation message. (We've gotten no bug reports about this, but with the flaky weather the past few days, it's better to be safe than sorry.) Just enter your login and password, and a new validation message will be sent to your email address. This feature won't work if you're already validated.

Wimp ;) Bah, what am I talking about, <> - my page - looks like it's generated dynamically, but it's really lots of static pages which are updated manually by perl scripts when I'm ready to update them. My machine gemini, a 486 with 12 MB of RAM, can't handle MySQL at all (due to its slackware 3.4 heritage - no threads.) One more thing: a cookie remembering our user data would be great (in addition to the username/password thing, as a fallback). I really despise entering usernames and passwords all the time.
