New User Information Review and Including Paypal

posts: 21 United States

Hi All,

So I'm finishing up a multipage new user registration flow using a multipage new user tracker and I'm at the point where I would like allow the newly registered users to review the information they've submitted. How can I display the information for a tracker associated with the new user? I.e. the user creates an account with email test at gmail.com, how would I access the tracker associated with this email, and how can I make it dynamic so it shows the information for the user that is logged in?

Also, after they review their information, I will be using Paypal to allow them to sign up for a membership. I've discovered the Paypal plugin, but there is also a smart button that Paypal has that I'd normally be able to include as a script in an HTML file, but when I use in on the wiki, it ends up below the footer for some reason, regardless of where I insert it. Is there a proper way to insert this button? I've included a screenshot and can share a screenshot of my code as well.

Thanks!
Sam

HI Sam

You can link to your user tracker item like this: tiki-view_tracker_item.php?view=+user

Thanks Johnny! I've got that all sorted out already! My biggest concern is that when I have a new user walk through my multipage registration process, they aren't technically logged in after the first page. So when they go to the second page of the registration, it does not allow them to upload a photo, which I have restricted to registered members. I know a way to cheat would be to allow all users to upload photos, but I would like new users to automatically be logged in after they create a new account via the tracker (given this happens if they register using the native registration page) so they can review their information before I ask them to submit a payment.

Thanks again!
Sam

Unless you need high level of compartimentation, I would "cheat" a bit and split the process in 2:

  • One part before registration (anonymous)
  • One after to "complete" the registration (registered)


At the end of the first part end with a validate your email process and customise the "success" url with a tracker form for the returning user (now registered) so he can feel other part of its user item like upload a file.

This is very common in many website and should be no problem.
At taht stage they can review information and submit payment again as registered users.
