Confirmation Page

Confirmation Page

When a user registers using the form, there should be an instant confirmation on screen.

For example:
' Thank you for registering with our newsletter '
I am not sure if this is available or I am missing the settings for this.

I have set up powermessanger for a client and he has already phoned me saying he is having problems with his test registration. However his registration already worked fine. I am sure all other users will face the same problem. If they are still looking at the same form they just filled in after submiting it, they will automatically think something did not work correctly. I think this will effect credibality of the website. I know the system sends a thank you email, but user may not receive this email instantly unless they have their email program running, but even this is not a sufficient way of confirming a user that the registration is completed.

Please can someone tell me where is the setting and how do I set it up.

Many thanks

it should automatically be directing to the profile page after registration. If it is not redirecting, that suggests a php error is occurring, add the following code at line 1 of the users_registration.php page to turn on error reporting:

php:
<?php
error_reporting
(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors','on');
?>

Thank Jason.
After registering with email and password details it is true that user lands on the PROFILE page. Then they fill in the rest of the form.. Name, Lastname .... etc
They click on UPDATE button. Nothing happens after. No message saying 'You have succesfully updated your details'
Sorry may be I did not make it clear to start with.

But I manage to put extra text in the profile page so when the user lands on the profile page after registering with email and password, they certainly know that their registration process is going well and my client (a restaurant owner) is offering a glass of wine if the user complete the form and validate their email. The only way they can claim their glass of wine is with a voucher which will be sent to users address. It is looking more exciting now. I think I register too. I like red wine.

Thanks again.

yes, it was not clear that you where talking about updating the profile.

edit line 97:

php:
header('Location: users_profile.php');




to:

php:
header('Location: users_profile.php?updated=true');



then add the following after the <body> tag to show a message:

php:
<?php if(isset($_GET['updated']) && $_GET['updated'] == "true") { ?>

Your profile has been updated
<?php ?>
