Ok, either I'm doing something totally wrong or using this extension only does half a job!

I have created my admin pages using dataassist and I'd like to add the ability to check if the username (email address) is in the database already.

If I try to use Dreamweavers server behaviour, Check User Name, it does not recognize the Insert Record server behaviour that WA creates. But of course, if I add an DW Insert Record server behaviour, I'm now adding the record twice.

Deleting the WA insert record seems to be the way to go except that when I do that, I'm no longer passing the information needed to see the newly added user in the details page.

As someone with almost zero knowledge of php, who is counting on web assist extensions to do the work for me, this is NUTS.

Please tell me where I can find step by step, detailed and easy to follow instructions to add this very needed functionality to the insert page created by Web Assist. Failing that, what exactly do I need to do to pass the right information from the Dreamweaver Insert Record behaviour to the detail page created by WA Data Assist.

This really should be ALOT easier
