DBEdit (Transaction Version)Updated 9/10/2003
This version of DBEdit experiments with a few new ideas. First, it isolates all the DB actions in a separate include file so they can be included on any pages that need to modify the database. Second, and most importantly, a log of all database transactions (add, update, delete) is saved in a transaction file. So if the database is corrupted, it can be completely rebuilt with a single click. In order to keep the transaction log a manageable size, a backup function creates a backup snapshot of the database and clears out the transaction list. A gloal preference for the database keeps track of the last unique ID used so UIDs will never be reused (as will happen if just the largest ID +1 technique is used). This also uses a new naming technique for database actions and a slick technique for handling checkboxes. There's a lot that could be done to view and edit the transaction list so that people who accidentally delete or modify a database record could delete that transaction and rebuild the database.

Folder-Level (Realm) Protection
WebCatalog is great for file-level protection, but doesn't offer a way to quickly protect an entire folder. Now there's a clever plug-in for WebSTAR (and soon for IIS) that solves this problem. Alpha version available now.
