E-mail confirmation
Can any one suggest me how to make the confirmation mail by PHP. Where the users who are new, after registering they will get a mail with a link by which the account will activated.

Re: E-mail confirmation
What is your issue? Is it sending the email or the problem is with the logic of how you should be writing the code for activating accounts?

Re: E-mail confirmation
Hi Joy,

I do not have exact code, but I have an idea of how to do it.

1. Someone registers.
2. You create an email in your script that sends a link inside the email, with the session id included in the url. Also, insert the username, password, session id, and other user info into a database.
3. User clicks link. It takes him to a page, E.G. index.php?id=3249782skldf234lasdf. In the index.php page, you have a $_GET['id']. You query the database for a session id exactly the same as your $_GET['id']. If there is a match, finish registering the user.

Sorry that I do not have an example, but I think that may help you understand the basic idea.

Re: E-mail confirmation
I am not sure what issues you are having.

You should have something like a database field where it says unconfirmed / confirmed and then when user clicks the email link that field value changes.

Is this the problem you are having?
