$userdm->set_bitfield(‘options’, ‘showemail’, intval(qpc_post(‘showemail’)));
$dst_setting = intval(qpc_post(‘dst’));
switch ($dst_setting)
case 0:
case 1:
$userdm->set_bitfield(‘options’, ‘dstonoff’, $dst_setting);
case 2:
$userdm->set_bitfield(‘options’, ‘dstauto’, 1);

#If there are errors (eMail not set, eMail banned, Username taken, etc.) you can check for errors using
if (count($userdm->errors)) {
for($i=0; $ierrors); $i++) {
print “ERROR{$i}:{$userdm->errors[$i]}n”;
