Registration email sends you back to registration page
My survey is set to public registration and anonymous response. When I go to preview the survey it asks for my name and email. I enter only the email, since I'd rather not know the names of my respondents and if I could only ask for an email, I would. It tells me that an email has been sent.
The email contains a URL link which ends in "index.php/371324/lang/en/token/VNuEqs9vpcLbXi8"
When I click the link it takes me to the "You must be registered to complete this survey" page. I must fill in my email again in order to click continue. When I do I get:
"Thank you for registering to participate in this survey.
The address you have entered is already registered. An email has been sent to this address with a link that gives you access to the survey."
In the top right is an option to "load unfinished survey." This button does nothing except change the url, but the page I'm on is visually unchanged. There is also a option to "exit and clear survey" which I have not tried because it isn't what I want to do.
One thing: is the token included in the url? If it is, then I don't see the "R" which the manual says that will be the first character in all tokens generated in this way. I don't know if that is important or not.
Thank you for your help.
The token of "index.php/371324/lang/en/token/VNuEqs9vpcLbXi8" is "VNuEqs9vpcLbXi8".

You need to check tokens with an activated survey, not in preview mode.
You might check for a bug. Try it without activating "Anonymized responses".
The 2.7X branch is no longer maintained. So if this a bug in LimeSurvey and not a small misconfiguration, you will not get any fix via a bugreport.
Why are you asking? You won't use "Public registration"

If they provide an email address that is not already in the current survey's tokens table, an entry in the tokens table will be created, and they will be emailed an invitation containing their unique Token. All tokens provided to "registering" visitors will begin with the letter "R".
And I might use this one day.
Correct, but the survey seems to be NOT activated.

For me "preview mode" means "chaos mode"
When I go to preview the survey it asks for my name and email.
