If I only knew the right question;-)
I have now returned to an ongoing project with a bit more knowledge..... ( well some knowledge)
Using the users registarion package I have created the registration pages etc. When registration is complete it goes to the page users_thankyou.php.
I checked and the user is now listed in the database and can log in etc.
the registration email is received and when I respond that information is alos added correctly.
So far so good!!
It is from here that in the past I have gone wrong. The next stage in the design is to allow each user to upload five images free of charge, that will eventually be displayed using the dataassist tools.
Thought this could be done using the digital file pro and adding the code to the user module file user_profile.php
Now I failed on this dismaly before Xmas so put in on the back burner however I've now got to get moving and of course digital file pro is now obselete or rather is not on my system as I have universal email.
Question am I approaching this in the right way and should I reinstall the digital file extension and follow the PDF instructions?
sorry to be long winded any suggestions appreciated.
