    Hi again,

    My name is Teis, what I meant was that I was jealous, just got to spell it in Danish, ha, ha.

    Thank you for some – info, :-), I need some more questions answered though. You, apperently know whats worth knowing in this area, but me :-)

    I found that a program like “mod_rewrite” need “Apache”, that as far as I know is a Linux browser, right?

    As I haven’t any Linux, yet, I found that “ISAPI_Rewrite” needed IIS, as I haven’t got, either, now my question; is there a program that translate the URL to a rewrite program that work on a WinXP?

    After going through your answer, I find that you answer me like I was to make a homepage.

    What I needed answer on was, how do you make your hidden URLs in a FixYa window.

Hi jalux

This is a surprisingly common question. My initial response is to not use QueryString parameters in cases where the information is sensitive. It is simply far too easy for users to modify the information in the URL to try and get different results; maybe information they shouldn't have access to at all. Here are some potential workarounds:

  1. Use a form and POST the information. This might require additional code in source pages, but should not require logic changes in the target pages (merely change Request.QueryString to Request.Form). While POST is not impossible to muck with, it's certainly less appealing than playing with QueryString parameters.

  2. Use session variables to carry information from page to page. This is likely a more substantial effort compared to (1), because you will need to take session variable checking into account (e.g. the user might now have a difficult time navigating around using their Back and Forward buttons, if you are constantly checking state). You will also need to deal with the case where session cookies are not enabled (this solution will not work for these people).

  3. Use "encoded" or non-sensical information in the QueryString in place of the real data. This will require the effort of creating an encoding and decoding scheme on either end of all page submissions. Sure, users can still experiment and reverse engineer your scheme, however they will be less likely to quickly come up with meaningful changes to the existing QueryString.

  4. Use framesets. I really don't recommend this approach, though it is quite common. If you're trying to hide the information as opposed to making it more difficult to modify, users can still right-click the individual frames and click properties, in order to retrieve all of the information passed via QueryString.

  5. Use Server.Transfer to move control to a second page, which will still have access to the QueryString parameters passed to the first page (the URL of which was visible only briefly).
One problem with moving away from QueryStrings is that they make your site harder to use. If you are relying on any method other than (3), it is impossible for users to bookmark the current page as is... they can only bookmark the page in a way that resembles what would have happened if they had simply typed the URL in (which might not even work, depending on how you've constructed the page). So that's just one thing to keep in mind when deciding how sensitive your information really is, and how far you're willing to go in the balance of usability vs. security.

I somehow delted the icon for my internet browser

Hi. To get your browser icon back, (probably it's been hidden) you only need to go to your main menu, press the menu button again, and you should see the "Show All" option, select it and now you'll see the hidden icons in grey color. When you come over the hidden icons and press menu button, you can select to hide or show them. And when you do the "Show All" steps again and select it again, this time you'll hide your icons selected as hidden. Hope this helps.

Hey does any body know how to reste a acer extensa 5420 pc notebook

Hi there and welcome to FixYa.
There is a hidden partition on the hard drive that keeps an image of how the laptop looked when it left the manufacturer.
You should be able to access this by the restore program. As I´m not to familiar with Vista, I would suggest you use your help in Vista to do it right.
