Registration Page: User Verification Code

Registration Page: User Verification Code

I would like my registration page to generate a user verification code that is stored in my users table and then send an email to the user asking them to verify their email address. This is the same functionality that is in the User Registration Solution Pack but I want to build it with Security Assist, CSS Form Builder and the other web assist tools.

My first question is how do I get the Registration page to generate and store a user verification code?

this technique is called "Double Opt In"

see the following thread for details:

Next question

I got the confirmation code generated and stored on the database. Thanks.

Now I am stumped by how to insert a registration email. I can't find anything called that when I click WebAssist|SecurityAssist|Email Password.

Thanks.

You need to have either the universal Email extension or CSS Form builder 2 for this.

Go to WebAssist -> Create Email Message to create the registration email.

Updating form breaks insert function

Thanks for your help Jason. I got my form working as required complete with the generation of an email. Then I applied a previously defined preset to the form to arrange it in two columns, etc and it no longer updates the database but does send an email. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

without seeing the code it's hard to say for certain, but my guess is that the insert behavior is set to use the Button Submit trigger, and either the button name has changed, or it has changed to an image.

edit the insert record behavior and reselect the Button Submit trigger.

I see the code that used to do the insert but when I click on Server Behaviors there is no Insert Record behavior listed. I have attached the code for you to lookat.

Thanks.

not sure why the behavior is not showing.
but i do see that the submit button name has changed:

change:

php:
<input class="formButton" name="AJFS_submit" type="submit" id="AJFS_submit" value="Register"   />





to:

php:
<input class="formButton" name="Registration_submit" type="submit" id="Registration_submit" value="Register"   />
