HI KK, thanks a lot for clarifying that!!! Could you please clarify something more?
Why do we have the regions in cloned user pages (made of users/index.php) and in the core user accounts named differently? For hopefully my lesser
confusion, I will name pages made of users/index.php, just "users/index.php", in the next sentences....
Why is Title in the users/index.php renamed or remapped in DisplayName in the core accounts? And why Name to Username ? Even though I find Username and what appears in the core user accounts to be more straightforward terms. I just realize that naming them differently adds to my confusion....
And, how can I explain to my clients, why we have members in two places? I can imagine they would ask me "What do I do with this one and what I do with the another listing?"...
In user/index.php email and password seem to be editable regions (extended_user_password etc)… in the core user account that seems to be a Couch variable k_email, k_password, k_password2… Are they exchangeable in the use in some other scenarios, for alert message after sending registration mail, for example?
Than, in the website I make, there are some older members who do not have e-mail address, and should be able to loggin - because there will be a member Area only for members....How would it be possible to solve this with one Login Form? And, even though I decided today, there is no need that members register themselves, how could that theoretically be solved, to login with the Username, because they are so complicated string of numbers? Or should in that case the administrator or the user be advised to change their username to an easier one, for the purpose of Logging in?
And one more question please: is it possible to have an extra Login-page for administrators and extra one for members? Because, as far as I understand, either the original Couch Login page shows up (that I would like to preserve for Administrators), either the users/loing.php - that replaces the Couch page....
It seems I have some more questions
- I am planning to use CVS importer to import the existing members list. I tried the tutorial files with cars and that was functioning perfect...Am I there on the right track? Changing headers in CVS and in couch file and making analogous changes in the car example files?
- Is there a way to export a list, something like a CVS exporter that can be done by Administrators, from Couch back end? I am thinking for using this export to import them to Mail Chimp?
- Just theoretically - I do not need that in reality now: is it possible with Couch to have some kind of alert message, every-time when a one-year membership expires, so that administrators do not have to check that manually?
Thanks in advance!!!
