Belay that last post.
I had expected the veritication email to come instantaneously, but it did not.
It has just arrived HOORAYYY!
I did it a second time and waited and that too arrived.
However, on both occasions I ended up on a page upon the site that displayed my username sign in and password, which of course is not good.
So I think if you remove that extra line of code it will all be done. When you have removed, I will test and report.
Thank you so much,
