First: I am test code before I post change requests and
system is live
so did not want to disrupt other catalogs while testing.
testing I always post code.
Thanks for warning on other areas using UserDB module, I
have taken that
into consideration. In this case I have an account which
need the abiltiy
to save event info with user account creation. I am looking
at adding this
to the sub "new_account" so new field "event_id" is added
when new account
is created. I will post more details as I sort out the bugs.
