[Plugin: Register Plus] Feature Suggestions (62 posts)

    I'm looking for feature suggestions for the Register Plus plugin. I'd rather add things I know people are looking for, rather than just guessing.

    Would you like to be able to add the full profile fields to the registration page? Change the logo on the registration page? Other ideas?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for a great plugin. Full profile fields on the registration page would be great. Also, I'd love to have the ability to use multiple invitation codes at once (and possibly to have that information stored in the database, to help track how people found your site). Don't know how realistic that is. Thanks again.

    Thanks for the suggestions dreamtofly!

    I've upgraded the plugin to include all the profile fields as well as any custom fields you may want. I've also added the ability to use multiple invite codes and the codes will save in the user_meta table so that tracking will be possible. I will add the ability to view how many users used which invite code in a future version.

    Cheers!

    hi skullbit, i'm not sure if i should post here or start another thread, but i believe i've found a bug. when creating a new author user from the admin panel, the password does not work for the new user if it ends in number (for some reason with only letters it does work).

    this seems to be caused by the register plus plugin because when i deactivate it, it works. any ideas?

    You probably should have started a new topic as this one is for feature suggestions, not bugs, but no worries!

    I noticed that bug too, and will have it fixed up later today when I release the next update to the plugin.

    Thanks!

    Hi Skullbit,

    Great plugin! This plugin meets a LOT of my website's needs. I like the idea of being able to change the logo on the registration page.

    Have you considered adding in a way for registered users to pay for monthly subscriptions via PayPal? That would be HUGE.

    Thanks again for your hard work,

    - H

    Thanks for the bug fix skullbit! And I like haloscope's PayPal idea.

    Hey Skullbit,

    Ditto on the thanks for the bugfix re: captcha. Until I found your plugin, I was using about five different plugins to do what yours does. I'm really happy with the quality of the plugin as well as how much support you're providing.

    Two more feature requests:
    1) Customizeable disclaimers. My website needs a user to agree to a (a) legal disclaimer (b) end user license agreement and (c) privacy policy.
    2) Custimizeable registration e-mails. I think it would be nice to send a customizeable e-mail to new users.

    Thanks,

    -H

    This plugin is amazing! Well done mister!

    You can say that I am being picky if you want...
    But I would like to run a competition between my friends to see who can get the most active users to sign up to my blog, and obviously with your 'Invitation Code' feature, that would be ideal to keep the tally etc. However, I do not wish to 'disallow' the non-friend's connections-type people to sign up to my site. (I'm greedy like that :oP)

    Is there a way to make the invitation code have an option in the dashboard, to make it an option? So the form asks "Got an invite code?" and then the user ticks a box to activate the box to type it in, if so. And of course the entry is ignored and the box is not coloured white (as active) and stays grey if they don't tick the box?!

    Asking too much?

    Keep up the great work - wish I could make stuff like this!

    Fantastic plugin!

    Here's a vote for Haloscopes customizable registration emails. And although full custom emails would be great, I'd be happy for the moment just being able to set the "from/reply-to" to either a custom address or the wp admin address.

    Thanks.

    Great suggestions all, I'll see what I can do.

    This is a totally awesome plugin. I used it to create a registration system for an internal company site. Also for feedback forms, I use Cforms II in conjunction. By having all the extra meta added on first registering a user, it is possible to do many neat things once they log in, like pre-fill Cforms forms. present profile information on post etc. Very nice.

    Great job master. I think I have a suggestion but not for this plugin, i think it does it all we need in a clear way. but the thing is I cant use the advantages of having extra and custom fields on the user side. I searched for a plugin that links to a author page with all the custom fields displayed from a list of authors&subscribes which would be on another page (I think thats the tricky part:=)

    also a option that can put a login on the sidebar would be great.

    I'd love the ability to pre-populate certain fields (with or without displaying them) based on which invitation code is used.

    I want to be able to control the way a company name is entered based on inviting all the employees of a company to register with an invitation code - but I think this would also be useful for many other things, like say pre-populating a (hidden) user profile filed with a percentage discount based on an invitation code... or various other group identifiers.

    wishlists are great lol, but you're just asking for trouble -- thanks for the consideration :)

    I keep trying to figure out if i'm just missing this function, but I would really like to be able to approve/disapprove registration before an email is sent back to the registering individual. The approval process could take place by email (from admin) or on the dashboard, eithe way would work (or both!). Great plugin...much needed and great follow up.

    Skullbit,

    I just wanted to thank you again for your hard work on this incredible and incredibly well supported plugin. Your plugin is essentially the cornerstone of my WP-as-CMS website.

    What I would absolutely love would be for different types of custom profile field e.g. radio button, drop down lists, checkbox etc

    Would this be an easy thing to do? I had a look at the plugin code but my php is too newbie to be able to alter it properly!

    @bob_hackr - I actually meant to add that for the last release, but forgot about it! I'll be sure to put the ability to customize field types in for the next release.

    Any thoughts on integrating OpenID? I know there are already some nice plugins for OpenID (WP-OpenID), but would love to see it combined with some of the options in Register Plus. For example, I'd like to force users to provide recaptcha, e-mail verification, and required profile info before accepting an OpenID for future ease of authentication. (Call me paranoid, but I think some day, spammers will be using OpenID for spam.)

    Actually, if WP-OpenID prevented automatic registration via OpenID, I'd be all set, but still, a cohesive integration solution would be even better. :-)

    Andrew, I have no plans for OpenID integration yet, but I will keep it in mind.

    It would be great if we could add hidden fields to the profile page. Simply tick off whether or not we want a custom field to be visible.

    Just installed this, and I love it!

    The one thing I have noticed is that you cannot edit the final email sent out after an admin has confirmed the account. Looks something like:

    "[Blog Name] User Account Activated

    Your account has now been activated by an administrator."

    It would be great if you could edit this text and set the email address that it sends from to the admin email.

    Skullbit,

    Again, thank you for the fantastic plugin. I especially appreciate you incorporating my feature request.

    From looking at the code for your plugin, it looks like all of the variables necessary for Register Plus are kept in a single option. Have you considered keeping them in separate, or more separate, option-value pairs in the options table? Doing so would enable other plugins, themes, etc to check individual Register Plus values instead of reading all the options and parsing it.

    Thanks again,

    - H

    ldozois - Hidden fields are here in 3.2

    frameskip - 3.2 uses the email set for user notifications. I'll think about adding customization options for the next release - too much work already for this one!

    Haloscope - I have over 40 options saving, so separating them is just a big database resource waste. You can call any option with the following code:

    $regplus = get_option('register_plus'); //gets regplus options from db
     $use_password = $regplus['password']; //gets the value for enabling registration password.

    All option keywords are listed on line 159 of version 3.2 in register-plus.php under

    function DefaultSettings () {
    			$default = array(

    If you need the custom field values, they are in another option:
    $regplus_custom = get_option('register_plus_custom');

    Very useful plugin! The ability to set your own password and verify via email upon registration seems much more in-line with other systems. My suggestion would be to integrate the ability to define your own password again when resetting a forgotten password.

    Automatic creation of a profile page in the theme for each of the users (maybe an automatic author.pho)

    Great plugin!

    I have a suggestion, though. It would be great if the user had to confirm their email just in case they misspell it the first time around. There's always the possiblity that they could misspell it in such a way that it's an actual email, just the wrong one, and ends up going to another person's email address. Then when the person who signed up looks for their confirmation email, they won't find it. Then most people will simply give up. I can definitely see that happening.

    On the other hand, if they have to confirm their email address, that should never happen.

    Thanks.
