Nice mod but I have a better idea inspired from Facebook .. they periodically check if the email address still exist or not .. if it doesn't exist they prompt user to update email
there are some classes that can be used for that

Yeah but this don't need to be fancy, it just needs to make sure the member has the correct email, and so far seems to be working as intended.

Good idea but I kinda agree with bridge2heyday.

If that is not possible I would like to see option to filter certain email providers such as countermail.com, hushmail.com, cyber-rights.net, anonymousspeech.com. Why? Because most of these free email providers shut down inboxes after few weeks unless upgrade to paid version is done.

Filter them for what? This mod has nothing to do about what email a user uses in your forum, it is just a reminder for users to make sure their email is up to date.

You can block emails used on your site in vB by default anyway.

Just installed and have been contacted by members that there might be an issue.

In my testing, my admin account was prompted to verify my e-mail.

I clicked the "yes this is my e-mail" link and everything working fine.

Another user saw that his e-mail was incorrect and updated his e-mail.

He got the verification thing sent to his in-box, he clicked the link.... I checked his user account and it shows the new e-mail as verified and all of that.

However when he returns to the site and tires to post or do anything he gets the notification box presented to him and it has the old e-mail address in it.

I turned off the mod and he is still getting the notification and it has locked him out of the system.

I tried disabling the product as well and it is still happening.

Tell the member to clear his browsers cache and cookies.

Thanks Ozzy,

I will keep testing with this person and see if that helps.

I hope I won't have to instruct everyone to reset cookies and stuff like that.

Was the user using IE?
Do you have these two lines in your .htaccess file?

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

If so remove those. I found that they cause issues in IE. By removing them has absolutely no adverse affects on site performance.

He was on IE

I do not have those in my .htaccess

However...

When I was diagnosing something else (IE11 issues for another member)

I was missing this in my headerinclude template:
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=9" />

Which made the issue go away.


I also had "Add No-Cache Headers" set to "No" which I read could also be an issue with IE11 and some other issues with cookies so I turned that to "Yes"

The person with IE issues says their problem went away.

I am waiting for the e-mail person to come back on-line so I can test again with him and try and turn your mod back on.


Could those two settings account for what he experienced?

(I would love to be able to turn no-cache back to "No" for performance reasons, unless there is a viable reason to actually leave it to "yes")

You can try to turn no-cache back to "No" and see what happens.

If you want to test this out your self, you can set your users date back using this query:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

That will set it to over a year ago.

X is replaced by your userid, and if you are using table prefixes, remember to add it to the query.

I will try that.

I am thinking it MAY be IE11 issues which that inclusion in the header fixed.

That was causing a lot of issues.
