Help with Email Verification

  1. rhuber

    I am in need to create a custom solution requiring email verification (similar to a double opt-in functionality common with email subscription lists).

    Here is my situation:

    I need a visitor to be able to fill out a form. After filling out the form, they will receive an email asking them to verify their email address. Ideally, once they verify their address, all of the form data will be sent as a final notification email to the site owner.

    As far as my pea-brain can conceptualize, the notification email that requests the user to verify their email address would have a link back to the website appended by a query string.

    At first I was thinking the query string would contain all data of the original form so that it could repopulate a fresh form with final notification settings behind it. But that might make for a long and unwieldy url.

    Then I was thinking maybe if I could append the url with {entry_id}, and use that to retrieve the original information needed. I'm not sure how to do that though.

    Whatever the case, what I need to to verify that email address, and then, once verified, send the original data to the intended recipient. Just can;t quite get my head around how to get this done.

    Any ideas would be GREATLY appreciated!

    I guess it's not looking good. I will try to come up with another solution.
