    Updating a member email & login


    I've got a custom surface controller to handle membership. I've got an update member action as follows:

        public ActionResult MvcMemberUpdateForm(MvcMemberUpdateModel model)
            var memberService = Services.MemberService;
            var member = memberService.GetByEmail(model.Email);
            member.SetValue("firstname", model.FirstName);
            member.SetValue("lastname", model.LastName);
            TempData["Success"] = true;
            return RedirectToCurrentUmbracoPage();

    I also want to let the member update their email address (which I also want to be the same as their username.) What is (are) the alias of these properties?

    e.g. member.SetValue("email", model.Email);

    Can the MemberService be used to achieve what I want it to?

    Cheers, Henry

    I believe it's as simple as this:

    member.Email = model.Email;
    member.Username = model.Email;

    I found a slight issue with updating the currently logged in member this way.

    Generally, it does not work Umbraco Public access.

    Further, methods like Umbraco.MembershipHelper.GetCurrentMember() return null.

    I believe this is because the current member cookie has an email attached to it, but this is not updated when you update the member.

    I recommend logging out the user after they have changed their username so that they can login again.
