SID-02188: TWiki Registration Questions: Email Confirmation

Status: Asked Asked TWiki version: 6.0.2 Perl version:
Category: CategoryRegistration Server OS: Last update: 1 year ago


I've created a new site: cmthelp.com, and some "dummy" users to test registration and other things.

When I have a dummy user register, I thought that an email is supposed to be generated and sent to the user. I have not ever seen this work properly. In fact, when user registers, they are immediately taken to a login screen where—if they enter the login information they just used—they get an "access change" error message, which I don't understand at all.

Can anyone please clarify how this should be done? I'm going to need folks to register, and I need this to work.

Thanks, Andy

Discussion and Answer

Set configure setting {Register}{NeedVerification} to 1 to require confirmation of e-mail address.

Also, if you set read access restriction for webs, users are prompted to login.

Hi Peter,

I'm not sure how I'd set (or unset) read access restrictions...

Help this idiot?

Thanks, Andy
