invitation links can be used more than once?[Answered - to be fixed. ] | Forum

I am using Oxwall 1.7.1 and have a site that requires invitations.

I expected that an invitation link could only be used once for a single registration and when that registration was complete the code would become useless.

But the same link seems to work multiple times to register additional users.  Is this intentional?

Do the codes in the links ever expire?

Thank you.

Do you use invitations via e-mail or something else?

invitations by email.  stock oxwall.  nothing special.

I have "Who can join" under Privacy&Permissions/Global Privacy set to "By my invitation only" and I just click on the Invite New Users button on the Users/Browse Users page to send the invitations.

The invitation emails contain a link that looks like http://sitename/join?code=yht5uQYju7u4WrUmE6ac

Using a valid code is enforced but codes don't ever seem to expire and can be used any number of times.  That doesn't seem right.

Thank you.  Is there a bugzilla or similar where we can view known Oxwall bugs?

No, there's no such place.
