Double opt in registration - rsVerify problem

Double opt in registration - rsVerify problem

I have worked through the tutorial several times. Each time, starting afresh.

On the section: configure the confirm page, I create the rsVerify recordset and the required parameter variables.

Moving on to the "create the update verified functionality", I create the required URL variables and then move onto update single record. When I click on the dynamic value field to expand the recordset reverify, the is no recordset listed.

Totally stumped on what the cause could be. I'm including the generated code for the user-confirm.php page.

<?php require_once('Connections/connSAWA.php'); ?>
if (!function_exists("GetSQLValueString")) {
function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "")
if (PHP_VERSION < 6) {
$theValue = get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? stripslashes($theValue) : $theValue;

$theValue = function_exists("mysql_real_escape_string") ? mysql_real_escape_string($theValue) : mysql_escape_string($theValue);

switch ($theType) {
case "text":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
case "long":
case "int":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";
case "double":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? doubleval($theValue) : "NULL";
case "date":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
case "defined":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? $theDefinedValue : $theNotDefinedValue;
return $theValue;

Another issue: creating the random string on the registration page. Point 7. Select WebAssist > Cookies > Set Session Value, the eCart dialogue box opens when wanting to perform this creation. Should it do so?

I am Using a Mac Pro, OS X ver 10.8.5. installed extensions: DB 1.1.8, DE 1.1.7 and eCart 5.0.7

Kindly advise. Thank you.

there is no recordset code on this page.

it looks like you have deleted the recordset after creating it.

maybe it was selected in code view and you accidentally deleted it.

i see code to unset the recordset:

by no code to create it.

Repeated numerous times

Thank you for your quick response Jason.

I've re-created this page several times today. Same problem. After creating the recordset, I do not save the page, as per tutorial, before creating the update verified functionality.

Should I save the page first before moving to the next step?

yes, save it after creating the recordset.

Same problem

I cleared the configuration cache file. Restarted Dreamweaver, recreated the user-confirm.php page from scratch.

Created the rs Verify recordset and the variables. See screenshot. As soon as I click the OK button and before saving my page, the recordset code is not inserted and remains the same as my first post.

Started all over again but this time I created the reVerify recordset without the variables, click OK. Exactly the same problem.

What next?

when you installed extensions:
DB 1.1.8, DE 1.1.7 and eCart 5.0.7

what was the install order?

eCart should be installed first. try uninstalling Data Bridge then reinstalling it

aslo what version of DW?

Follow up report

I'm using Dreamweaver CS6.

The sequence of installation: eCart, DE, DB

I uninstalled all WA extensions and then reinstalled.

Deleted all the double opt in files and started again.

Completed registration and redirected to register-confirm.php.

Confirmed that the data had been added to the database.

Received verify email and was redirected to user-confirm.php.

I noticed in the browser URL:

Text displayed on page: Your verification link has expired. Visit your profile page to send a new link.

Clicked the link "profile page" and redirected to userupdate.php

Text displayed on this page:

"Your email hasn't been verified. Please click here and we will email you a new link.
No record found."

I then clicked on the "click here" link.

URL in browser;

No verify email received to my inbox.

I am including my files. Please have a look and advise where I'm missing it.

Much appreciated

on the user-confirm.php page, the run time variable for the paramrandomString parameter in the rsVerify recordset is set to:

the variable in the email is named randomString

the run time value should be set to:

to troubleshoot the user update page, add the following code in the body and post back the results:

<?php var_dump($_SESSION); echo("<br />".$query_SecurityAssistriSubscribers); ?>
