#2376 closed enhancement (wontfix)

2 e-mail-boxes at Sign-Up

Reported by: erich73's profile erich73 Owned by:
Milestone: 1.5 Priority: normal
Severity: Version:
Component: Core Keywords: dev-feedback


at the Sign-up-page where a user registers, there should be 2 "e-mail boxes" in order to make sure that the user enters his e-mail-address correctly.

When a user makes a typo on entering his e-mail-address, he should be informed in order to correct his e-mail.

There are 2 Password-Boxes in BP, and there should be also 2 e-mail-boxes so that the user gets his e-mail-address entered correctly.

This is a standard web-feature nowadays.

  • Keywords dev-feedback added

the script in my blog is for adding in a site, approach for adding to the core is different, so don't consider that as a patch.
I don't feel the email confirm always needed and it's really easy to add (as a script or as plugin), so lets see what coredevs think and how many user really want this in the core

For simplicity's sake, I wouldn't add the second email address field to the core.

Case in point, look at Twitter's signup page:

@Erich - Francesco's code works well as a plugin, so I'd recommend just popping that code in bp-custom.php or your theme's functions.php.

This functionality is now added in Boris' BP Xtra Signup plugin:

I'd suggest using his plugin for this.

I'm in agreement with Francesco; this shouldn't be in core.
