Hiding Browser URL

Nov 16, 2012 11:23 PM

Hi

 

Summary: I have a working input form. User information is captured. This form is posted around. I do not wish for the url of this page to be known.

Question:

How will I achieve this and What should I code? Where should I code it?

Source code:

<?php require_once('Connections/dbAttendance.php'); ?>

<?php

if (!function_exists("GetSQLValueString")) {

function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "")

{

  if (PHP_VERSION < 6) {

    $theValue = get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? stripslashes($theValue) : $theValue;

  }

 

 

  $theValue = function_exists("mysql_real_escape_string") ? mysql_real_escape_string($theValue) : mysql_escape_string($theValue);

 

 

  switch ($theType) {

    case "text":

      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";

      break;   

    case "long":

    case "int":

      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";

      break;

    case "double":

      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? doubleval($theValue) : "NULL";

      break;

    case "date":

      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";

      break;

    case "defined":

      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? $theDefinedValue : $theNotDefinedValue;

      break;

  }

  return $theValue;

}

}

 

 

$editFormAction = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];

if (isset($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'])) {

  $editFormAction .= "?" . htmlentities($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']);

}

 

 

if ((isset($_POST["MM_insert"])) && ($_POST["MM_insert"] == "form")) {

  $insertSQL = sprintf("INSERT INTO attendlist (Windowsid, title, firstname, surname, extension, mobile, jobrole, course, cpg, mgrname, room) VALUES (%s, %s, %s, %s, %s, %s, %s, %s, %s, %s, %s)",

                       GetSQLValueString($_POST['textfield'], "text"),

                       GetSQLValueString($_POST['select'], "text"),

                       GetSQLValueString($_POST['textfield2'], "text"),

                       GetSQLValueString($_POST['textfield3'], "text"),

                       GetSQLValueString($_POST['textfield4'], "text"),

                       GetSQLValueString($_POST['textfield5'], "text"),

                       GetSQLValueString($_POST['select5'], "text"),

                       GetSQLValueString($_POST['select2'], "text"),

                       GetSQLValueString($_POST['select4'], "text"),

                       GetSQLValueString($_POST['textfield7'], "text"),

                       GetSQLValueString($_POST['select3'], "text"));

 

 

  mysql_select_db($database_dbAttendance, $dbAttendance);

  $Result1 = mysql_query($insertSQL, $dbAttendance) or die(mysql_error());

 

 

  $insertGoTo = "Thankyou.php";

  if (isset($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'])) {

    $insertGoTo .= (strpos($insertGoTo, '?')) ? "&" : "?";

    $insertGoTo .= $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];

  }

  header(sprintf("Location: %s", $insertGoTo));

}

 

 

mysql_select_db($database_dbAttendance, $dbAttendance);

$query_rsAttendance = "SELECT * FROM attendlist";

$rsAttendance = mysql_query($query_rsAttendance, $dbAttendance) or die(mysql_error());

$row_rsAttendance = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsAttendance);

$totalRows_rsAttendance = mysql_num_rows($rsAttendance);

    If you don't want the URL to be known, don't run a web page. You could load it inside an iFrame or dynamically inside a script, which you can disguise further using Base64 encoding or similar or you could generate abstract URLs using PHP, but ultimately, if somebody wnats, they can still find out. You'd do better working authentication procedures, so only people who have a valid key can fill out and send the form...

    Sorry - I still don't understand what it is you want to hide.  Can you just give me that information?

    This is a server-side question. As advised to you earlier once, you should post this in the appropriate forum for better (quicker) responses. I'm moving it there this time as well.

     

    First look - You are using server behaviors. Bad idea. How about writing custom-code - considering the work that you seem to be doing is quite comprehensive?

     

    Custom-code - Have you heard about AJAX? Posting a form while 're-directing' the user the the submission page is your problem - you've mentioned in your original question.

     

    If you use AJAX form validation/ submission, your user will not be taken to the submission page. They go to Page A, fill the form info, hit submit, AJAX validation happens and form is submitted in the backend. User is still in Page A - the only change happening on front-end being that the user sees a 'Message sent' or 'Form submitted' message.

     

    Eureka?

    >I have been waiting over 8 hrs still no reply to the rest of my post

     

    Again, this is a user-to-user forum. We don't work for Adobe. Many of us may be in a different timezone that you and are sleeping while you are posting. Also note that activity on all of these forums is significantly reduced during the weekend. We all have lives and families. Complaining numerous times about lack of responsiveness on these forums seems like a slap in the face to those who have put a great deal of effort into assisting you.

     

    Now, back to your current question:

     

    >Can DW support this idea ?

     

    It can only support it in that it is a simple editor that will allow you to enter custom code you write.

     

    >Is there more to using server behaviour to try and code up this

    >type of behaviour required. Is this behaviour in DW server behaviour?

    >

    >Is this where DW server behaviour ends?

     

    They ended long before this. They don't support AJAX calls, and based on your requirements, you should not be using them at all. I would avoid DW SB's because:

     

    1) They are intended for only the simplest web application functions

    2) They are not robust

    3) They do not meet todays coding standards

    4) They are overly verbose - most human written code is more concise and easier to read

    5) Once you modify them, DW dialogs can no longer maintain them.

     

    I suspect that they will be completely removed in upcoming versions.
