I’m trying to implement a front-end user management in MODX.
For this I’m using Login + Bob Ray’s ClassExtender to manage extra user data.
I’ve an issue with creating new users with Register.
When I try to call ExtUserRegisterPosthook as posthook:
<form class="form" action="[[~[[*id]]]]" method="post">
<input type="submit" name="loginRegisterBtn" value="Register" />
Submitting the form does create the user successfully, but does not trigger the posthook.
I’ve inserted some debug functionnalty in ExtUserRegisterPosthook, and I can confirm that the snippet is not called at all as posthook.
Maybe I made some mistake, so if anyone can help it would be great!
MODX Revolution 2.8.3-pl
I don’t see why the posthook snippet wouldn’t be executed.
Does it work with a custom snippet with only this content?
$modx->log(modX::LOG_LEVEL_ERROR, 'post hook executed'); //Writes a message to the MODX error log
If the posthook is not executing, try moving it to the top of the properties list. If that fixes things, there’s something wrong with a property. Generally, properties below a problem property will be ignored (for example, using
$propertyName instead of
In your validation property, I think this:

Thanks to both of you!
I’m quite new to Revolution and didn’t think to check the error logs… Now I did and solved the issue.
It was linked to a query trying to insert a null value in a non null field on my extended user table.
For some reason the custom debug function I had put in the snippet initially didn’t work, so I was looking in the wrong way.
I’ve just tested this forward and it seems that both usages are a bit different:
checks that email is completed
checks that email is both completed + compliant to email format
Interesting. I’ve never seen that. It goes to show that you never stop learning new things about MODX.
email:email:required comes from the Register docs. I’m not sure what it would do.
