Excellent suggestion on manually adding a user (myself) to the database...I did this, then logged in. It successfully pulled up my profile (users_Profile.php). So something is wrong with my registration/verification pages, it would seem. The pages you could test yourself are users_Registration_Simple.php, users_Registration.php, Users_Confirm.php, etc. By the way, I am connecting with my preexisting membership database, with your users table added as a second table (rather than Users as a standalone database).
One question on the verification, registration, and lost_password.php universal email pages provided in the solution pack. I assume I am to move them out of the templates folder and into my main directory (after doing a SaveAs)? Or should the verification process be pointing to WAUE_users_EmailPW_1, WAUE_users_Profile_1, and WAUE_Registration_1 pages? It wasn't clear in the documentation what we were to do with these templates once we customized them.
