[resolved] Registering (6 posts)

    This may be a noob question, but when a guest visits the site and gets the message "You do not have permissions", is there a link I can give them to register?

    And are there custom fields I can add to the registration form?

    What you could do is change the setting "Enable Guest Permissions" to "No" so that when guests visit your forum just a login and register link is displayed, regardless of page. If the setting is enabled then you'll be able to set their permissions for each forum but the My Profile, Unread Topics, Unanswered Topics and My Messages pages will still display a login and register link.

    You'd have to search for a plugin that can add custom fields to the registration form as WPBB simply redirects you to the register and login pages and doesn't yet offer this functionality (just searched for such a plugin and there are 1000 to choose from just ensure the one you pick is up to date).

    Will mark this as resolved but feel free to post here if you have any more questions, problems etc

    Thanks

    Thanks for your response. I tried it out by setting the Enable Guest Permissions to No and now when I open my forums, the content area is just blank. No links to login or register. :O

    Are you using the latest version, v1.0.4?

    If so could you add this line to wp-bb.php:

    error_reporting(E_ALL);

    Doesn't matter where along as it is between the

    <?php

    and

    ?>

    Thanks
