Ok, I logged in and performed a test and it seems to work correctly the user/Connections entry were linked as expected. The steps I followed:
- Created a new entry named “0 Test Link” with a test email address.
- Created a new user named “0-test-user” with the same test email address.
- Opened a private browser window and logged in as the “0-test-user” user.
- Then I check the link status on the Connections : Manage admin page for the “0 Test Link” entry and it indicated the “0-test-user” user was linked.
So I did another test…
- Created a new user named “1-test-user” with an email address from the “Adkerson, R*****” entry.
- Opened a private browser window and logged in as the “1-test-user” user.
- Then I check the link status on the Connections : Manage admin page for the “Adkerson, R*****” and it indicated the “1-test-user” user was linked.
This too worked as expected.
Once final test…
- I registered a new user using the Register link.
- The registered user is “2-test-user” using the email address for the “Allen, S*****” entry.
- As the admin I approved the entry.
- Opened a private browser window and logged in as the “2-test-user” user.
- Then I check the link status on the Connections : Manage admin page for the “Allen, S*****” and it indicated the “2-test-user” user was linked.
Again, this worked as expected.
So, everything seem like is it in good working order. I left the test users and the links in place so you could see them to verify. You can safely delete the test users and test entry.
Hope that helps!09/08/2016 at 1:59 pm #390347
@ Steven Zahm
Thanks for the help Steven. I guess it was linking correctly the whole time – I just wasn’t understanding the plugin fully.
So, as new users register and are approved as a subscriber, how will they be able to gain access to the “View My Directory Entry” page to make edits? I think I need a front end option. Is that something that your Form extension can provide?
Really appreciate the help.09/08/2016 at 2:08 pm #390349
Seeing as you have the admin blocked to subscribers, yes, you’ll need the Form extension so they can edit their entries on the site’s frontend.
Visit, the Link doc for configuration. You’ll want to enable the “View My Directory Entry” and “Edit My Directory Entry” list actions as explained in the instructions. With Form installed, those links will resolve to the frontend form instead of the admin.
