Username already exists

NJM 17 Sep, 2015

I have a question regarding an error "username already exists".

So I have created a registration form. When saved, a part goes to joom_users, and a part is saved to a second table (from chronoforms like "joom_chronoengine_chronoforms_datatable...." ) They are linked with the user_id. When I test it via "test form" and I fill in all the fields, it works perfectly. All valuables are put in the database.

When I place the module in an article and I do the same, I get an error, that the username already exists.
The user is created in the joom_users table, but the user isn't put in the second table.

Any ideas why? Maybe the setup isn't put in the right order?

Hi noeljm,

It may be a problem with a value of id being picked up from the article id in the page URL. Add a Debugger and see if Id is showing up in the form data. If it is then add a Custom Code action to remove it
if ( !empty($form->data['id']) {

Thanks for answering so soon.

The debugger shows and id from the article, but it also shows the id of the new user, so I'm not user. I've add your <?php ?> but the result remains the same.

I' have a custom code , maybe that errors?
$userid = $form->data['_PLUGINS_']['joomla_registration']['id'];
$form->data['user_id'] = $form->data['_PLUGINS_']['joomla_registration']['id'];
