ActiveSocial 2 Stage Registration/Verification

Sep 9, 2012 at 10:51 AM

Hi Will,

One of my favourite features from AS and one that I rely on heavily to reduce spam on PokerDIY.com is the AS 2 stage verification process. The other is the customisable sign up screen  - e.g.   http://www.pokerdiy.com/edit-pokerdiy-profile.aspx 

http://www.activemodules.com/activesocial/kb/community-role-two-stage-progressive-registration/

Is this something that will be in DNN 6.2?

If not, can I use DNN 6.2 and keep AS as the Registration module for the sign up screen and the verification - ie. will they work side by side?

I assume the New Journal/Private Message to new users and groups will no longer work in AS - is this in DNN 6.2?

Yes, DotNetNuke 6.2 changed the way it handled Verified registration so that you can make use of the Unverified role and get the same benefits of 2-stage registration.

I would suggest reviewing the following blog posts...

That's good to hear, it is a great feature...

FWIW I read all blogs as they come out - I did not find that mentioned anywhere though.
