Hi,

I am wondering if anyone can help me out or point me in the right direction to resolve an issue. I have a portal running on DNN 6.2.4 which uses a custom registration page. "Require a valid Profile" is checked so that prospective users fill in a certain amount of info. The Registration Page in the site settings is this custom reg page. I also had used request filtering to stop the default register.aspx and ?ctl=register from working to reduce spam registrations. 

The site has run for a few years like this with no problem however spam registrations have increased and recently got to the point where something had to be done. I had used the free iwebs-register module before on another instance to change the captcha to Google reCaptcha and it was straightforward so I decided to try that here as well. After I installed it and implemented it I found out that it wouldn't add reCaptcha to a custom reg page so I deactivated and uninstalled it. 

The problem is that ever since this there is a redirect now that always goes to register.aspx, which of course was blocked from the request filter, but if I remove the request filter then it ends up in a redirect loop between my custom page and the default register.aspx page. 

My reg page: http://wednesdaymorningdialogue.com/Membership/Application.aspx 
is being redirected to: http://wednesdaymorningdialogue.com/register.aspx

So I believe the bottom line is that I need to find and stop wherever this redirection is coming from which only happened after installing and uninstalling the iweb-register module (a free module from Interactive Webs). Does anyone have any ideas where in a file or the database this redirection could be coming from?

 

Note: (1) I do not have a backup that I can roll back to from before this. (2) I have contacted Interactive Webs for support and they have tried to help but have misunderstood the issue described above and told me that the problem was the request filter (which it of course is not).  They have spent some time troubleshooting and since it is a free module I don't necessarily expect a ton of support but I do need a solution so that registration will work again which is why I am now reaching out to the community.

 

Thanks,
Josiah

did you check site settings, whether your registration page is still set as special "Registration Page"
did you consider renaming "Application" page to "Register" ?

Yes my page is still set as the "special" registration page. But I have tried it with and without. 

I thought about renaming, but one huge reason for using a custom page is to reduce spam registrations which is why I was using the request filter.

if there are no settings for registration page in the captcha module, I don't have another idea, sorry-

I even tried to make a custom registration page on a new portal on the same DNN instance. I added the Users and Roles module as outlined here: http://www.dnnsoftware.com/wiki/replacing-registration-page-with-custom-and-blocking-the-default-register-page 

So as far as I can tell, the module "Users and Roles" is triggering the redirect from the custom page to the default register.aspx. I looked for it to inspect the files on the server in the Desktop Modules folder but don't see it there. 

***Do you know where the files are for that module (Users and Roles) and/or which table in the database would have the settings for it?***

Also, I am considering copying some files from the installation package over in hopes of restoring default behavior but I need to know which files are for that module. Of course I will make a backup first just in case I totally screw something up.
