Here is the plan of attack to
validate members -
The person signs up and their
info is added to the database, however their account is marked as 'not
validated' and cannot log-in until it is 'validated'.
An email is sent to them with a
link that contains their email and an activation code.
They click on this link and are
transported to a page
The page takes those two values
and looks them up in the database to mark their account as 'validated'
The database will look something
like this -
|Table Name :
|Primary Key, Auto Number
||Must be unique. Text
||Must be unique, text
||Text, either V (validated) or
N (not validated)
The form -
