The assignment asks you to continue to extend your message board from Project 2. This version requires the addition of a registration mechanism for new users and extended role functions.


New User Registration

Use a 2 step procedure to reduce illegitimate registrations:

At registration, users can specify if they want to receive either text/html email or text/plain email. Note that you cannot send email outside of the domain.

You are encouraged to have other groups test out your new user registration feature.

Forgot Password

Add a “Forgot password?” function to email password reminder or password reset to existing users. It is your choice which to implement.
