|Target Version||4.0.x||Fixed in Version||2.11.8|
|Summary||0015487: Adding user with admin/?page=user does not check if the user is already in the database and then replace the old values|
|Description||This is my first Mentis report so feedbacks are appreciated.|
I tested the bug with PhpList 2.10.10. I read the change log for 2.10.11 and 2.10.12 and it does not seem it has been fixed.
When using the form http://www.phplist.org/admin/?page=user to add a new user it does not check if the email address is already in the database. When clicking submit this will replace the old values with the new values of the form instead of merging them.
The http://phplist.org/admin/?page=import is working fine.
I have 2 lists: A and B.
I have a user firstname.lastname@example.org that is subscribed to list A.
Someone who does not know that the user is already in the database uses the form to add the user email@example.com to the list B.
Now instead of having the user firstname.lastname@example.org subscribed to list A and B the user is only subscribed to the B list.

||Yes, seems a good idea to add a check to see whether a user already exists in the database, and if confirmed to switch to the User Details page for manual updating.|
