photofxplus Posted April 12, 2008 Share Posted April 12, 2008 As per request this topic is in regards to my contribution FX_Email_Verification. This contribution attempts to prevent bogus email address's upon creation of new accounts. Once an account is created the customer is emailed a password which will allow them to log in. The password fields on the Create Account page are dimmed and prepopulated with a randomly created password. These fields cannot be edited and/or selected by the customer. The store owner has the option to display these password fields or not to display them on the Create Account page. The contribution includes and Admin panel addition under customers. This selection titled 'Verify Customers' allows the store owner to view which accounts have been created and not logged into. After creating a new account, even using a bogus email address, the information is still written to the database. 'Verify Customers' will display all customers that have not logged into their account - within a set time period. This set time period can be edited - default value is 30 days which means that anyone that has created the account and has not logged in after 30 days after will be displayed with a status indicater of red in the 'Password Expired' column. One other useful date that can be edited is the 'account verification start date', all customers before this date will not display on the 'Verify Customers' page. Reason - that account has already been created, bogus email or not. Customer accounts can be deleted from the 'Customer Verify' page. Installation is simple, just copy the catalog folder over your existing. No database changes.. The contribution includes a read_me.txt which explains more specifics concerning editing variables such as where they are and values. Please post any suggestions, comments, and/or issues in this topic. Quote Lloyd Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
