Please, note. This article is entirely based on a work done by me colleague developer, who hasn't got account on this webpage and also hasn't got time for writing this article. I'm writing it for him. I will try to forward him any comments that may appear, but can't assure if/when he'll be able to answer. I'm far, far less experienced in Oracle therefore I won't probably be able to help myself.
In order to avoid bounce messages and unsolicited registrations, most webapps send automatic activation emails upon user registration, and the account remain inactive as long as it is not activated. Better yet, you can periodically purge your data by removing accounts that have not yet been activated.
As I'm new to the framework (2 weeks) - I tried to build a functionallity I already use a lot in my old framework (PRADO). This means combining a GridView with a form. And this in one page, what allows you to select a record from the grid and view the values in the same page without jumping to a new page.
I recently had to have a checkbox column in my grid view that supported the 'disabled' attribute. This was easy enough to do by extending the CCheckBoxColumn. However, I also wanted the checkbox to be selected when clicking on the table's row (supported via CGridView's selectableRows option). I discovered I had to tweak yiigridview.js so that it would not select disabled rows when clicking on it or on the 'select all' checkbox.
I have been trying to find information on how to sync the sessions between Yii and KCFinder so that the two applications can "communicate" with each other. I managed to find some bits and pieces on the correct approach to use, but not a definite guide or concrete code.
