Reconfirm e-mail plugin for Community Builder not working on Joomla 4

Hi

Regarding Reconfirm e-mail plugin for Community Builder
Change of e-mail front end by registered users working fine before installation of plugin

Installed the extension reconfirm e-mail for Community builder.
Tested it out
At the profile when the e-mail is changed in front end by registered user, the e-mail remains same as previous
the e-mail is sent to the new e-mail address and link provided to confirm the new e-mail, but still remains the same as the old...
also noted, with the plugin, the warning that an e-mail is already in use to not show...

Note:
Running on Joomla 4 (4.1.5)
If this has any bearing on the subject, this has been tried with CB Bootstrap on and off, same result...

Don't understand the issue. Appears to be working fine for me as follows.

1. Go to profile edit
2. Change email address
3. Email address remains unchanged
4. Confirmation email is sent
5. Confirmed change
6. Email is now changed

The email address attached to their profile will not change until they've confirmed the change.

Hi

Apologies, i should have explained the issue somewhat more in detail, was a bit tired when initially raising the post

Steps 1-2 yes
Step 3 issue if a already used e-mail is entered
Step 4 yes
Step 6, issue if not already logged in

What happens
After activation of e-mail link, the user gets directed to login
after login and going to the profile, the e-mail appear still as the old...
Now
If the user while logged in activate the e-mail link a second tap opens up with a message the e-mail is changed
and in this case it is, but to being logged in should not be required for this to work...
the function should be insured similar to first registration e-mail and approval first time as a user register.
**
The other issue mentioned:
Part of various testing before rollout of the reconfirmation function also tried to use an exiting e-mail already in use,
Yes you are warned, but this is after the other already in use e-mail user has received the e-mail link for change and only
after the other users e-mail has activated the link
(and if the simultaneously if the first user who wrongly entered the e-mail are logged in, back to the issue above...)
The point was that the user get no warning when trying to enter an already used e-mail and save when the plugin is activated,
when the plugin is unpublished a warning appear immediately when trying to save.
**
In my opinion It's a bug or overseen design, whatever it's called, that reconfirmation of email does not work if the user
is not logged in at same time and using the link again, and is allowed to enter an already used e-mail for processing the confirmation
link flow.

The reconfirmation check does not require them to be logged in. The only reason for that to happen is the Itemid in the confirmation code URL is linking to a Joomla menu item that is set to Registered or higher. As we explicitly state in menu creation and in documentation you MUST have a public and published Joomla menu link to CBs profile page. That's so we can ensure public access URLs remain public access.

The only bug I'm seeing is if you try to change your email to an already registered email address. That does need fixed and have added a bug ticket to fix it.
