    Hi, again.

    Had another thought. Right now, the confirmation message "Thank you %s, your account has been verified..." appears at the end of the login form. I realize this is because you are using the login_form hook, which appends stuff at the end of the login form.

    However, in my beta testing, my users were confused by the message appearing at the end of the form rather than at the beginning. (You know how easily the average user is confused.)

    If there's any possible way of putting the messages at the beginning of the login form or sending them to another form entirely, that would be optimal. Perhaps Register Plug could generate an entirely new form for just this purpose.

    Just a thought.

    hi skullbit,

    i concur with the many others praising you for the work on this plugin!
    something which might improve the usability of the admin page of the plugin would be to have tabs for the different sections and an ajaxed way of moving the custom fields (ie jquery provide good examples).

    One of a handful of what I call essential WordPress plugins if you require registration. Great job with this?

    I would like to suggest the ability to place custom text on the registration page. This would be an easy way to place registration instructions, or whatever you want to communicate at the point of registration

    Thank you again!

    Hi Skulbit

    Great plugin! Congratulations! I have some problems with the email confirmation sended to users, but I think is a WP problem, not in Register Plus.


    The word "redirect_to" included in the link send to users (see sample code) is interpreted in Hotmail webmail like a SPAM mail. So, when the mail arrive, he is put in spam folder, and users in general dont look this folder and think is a system fail in the website. I need put one big advice: "CHECK YOUR SPAN OR TRASH FOLDER IN YOUR WEBMAIL to see de confirmation register link", but I think this is very, very deselegant. Tested in Gmail: No problems. Tested in Yahoo: No problems.

    Any idea to solve this issue or maybe bypass the WP code with another code more clean?

    Any plans on adding a feature for lost/forgotten passwords. When users click lost password they can get a customized email. Also so they do not have to go to the generic wordpress profile.php page to change it to something they can remember (currently gives them a random string password).

    Thanks for the great plugin.

    Hi mate!!

    I really would love if you create the possibility of adding an avatar (user photo) to the registration form... that would be amazing... i tried to use Cimy User Extra Fields with Register Plus but it doesn't work...

    if you can add this feature i would be really glad!

    Thanks a lot

    1. Upload the register-plus directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
    2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
    3. Set the options in the Settings Panel

    Now copy the HTML editor of the Register and paste it into the HTML of a page created in empty worpress, but only a code is broken?
    INTUIT THIS IS NOT NOTHING! SHOULD MAKE A CODE to copy and paste as simple as that?

    I'm finding that spammers are registering and getting past the whole captcha thing because they're real people obviously being paid to do this now.

    I'm finding a lot of people are signing up and then never bother to leave another comment.

    Any way you could have an automatic user delete if they don't comment more than 5 times within 1 week or so?

    I'm finding it a real pain in the ass trying to choose what user is legit and who is not, to delete, since the WP User Admin doesn't show how many comments the user has made.

    Would help to keep the registered user list clean and tidy and not cluttered with hundreds of dead users.

    Maybe an e-mail could be sent out stating they will or have been deleted due to lack of comment participation.

    One excellent feature would be to allow users to send themselves their current password if they forget it, not a new random one. This should be easy to disable if the content is so sensitive that sending the current password is not acceptable.

    I think WordPress defaults to sending a random password right now.

    Great plugin. I look forward to the next, polished release!

    I'm a bit new to all this, so I may just be missing something, but would it be possible to include a field, with the date and time the person registered? This need not be visible to the user, but from an admin standpoint, it would be nice to have this time/date stamp easily available. It would also be nice if there was a clear way to create an audit trail connecting the date/time stamp and the specific license terms that a user used.

    Also, is it (would it be) possible to create a two tiered registration system. Here's the scenario I'm thinking about. You have certain contributors where you want to use the registration system to have them sign off on the terms under which they will submit content to the blog.

    Then you have just garden variety users, who you want to register for commenting purposes, etc. But you may not want to require them to submit as much info.

    @macbros, check out Intense Debate (a commenting system website that was purchased by Automattic the company that makes WordPress.Com). Also check out the upcoming WP 2.7 upgrade because it will have better features for user and comment moderating.

    @kingsinger, the trend now is to turn off Must Be Registered To Comment. Let non-registered users post Comments. It won't hurt. You can still have the fields for them to enter their name, email, and website. That should satisfy your minimal info, and leave Registration for the higher group that must agree to your license.

    I've upgraded my website to WP v2.7 rc1. In doing so, I noticed an error in the dashboard:

    Warning: extract() [function.extract]: First argument should be an array in /home/ROOTNAME/public_html/WEBSITENAME/wp-content/plugins/register-plus/dash_widget.php on line 24

    Line 24 is:
    extract( $args, EXTR_SKIP );

    I found that changing this to:
    if (is_array($args)) { extract( $args, EXTR_SKIP ); }

    Fixed the problem.

    Thanks again for your work on a truly fantastic plugin.

    Awesome plugin!!!
    you should change the logo link on the register page too; it still links to wordpress.org
    I'm not able the register a new user: I did get an empty...
    <div id="login_error"></div>
    ...and don't understand why! I don't know if it's my fault, if it's 2.7 fault, or what else! (still working on it!)

    Another suggestions:

    (1)- Users sometimes dont type the email correctly and loose the registration process - one letter and all is lost. If possible, one option to put the email field to repeat and compare if is correctly, like the password.

    (2)- One option to bypass the php mail and use personal SMTP sender to send, by example, the confirmation link or recover password.

    Thanks so much for this plugin...it is GREAT!
    Couple of wishlist items:
    1) I need the registration info collected to be inputted into a database or able to be downloaded/exported into Excel. Is this possible? Even with the added custom fields I have added...
    2) I am a complete newbie when it comes to CSS, I would love however to change the colors of the required fields and perhaps the other fields and borders as well to match my green theme. Could you make this more straightforward?

    Thanks so much! Will definitely be donating! GREAT WORK!

    I have activated the register plus plug-in and updated the Settings, however when I click on the register link on my sidebar the normal wordpress register link appears...I assume I need to change my sidebar code to call the register plus code..what do I need to do so the register plus form appears not the wp register login..

    When will there be a tested WP v2.7-compatible version available?

    GREAT plugin for the most part (until WP v2.7) ...

    DanoNH, I have 2.7. When u say it does not work, is the behavior u are observing where the register link is clicked, but the wp form is displayed ?

    WP 2.7: when you upload via ftp and manually activate the plugin, you´ll have no problems.

    feature suggestion #1:

    Show user-list only for specific level. i know, you can call this via user_level from user_meta table, but it would be nice to have a shortcode to display user-data on a post/page and it would be even more nice if you could specify the output user level (for making something close to user groups) too.

    Hi Skullbit,

    Register Plus was exactly the plugin i was looking to convert our site (Favourite56.com)into a invite-only group. It was great to have your work. Since you asked here are a couple of suggestions:

    1. Feature to send invite-emails through register-plus (instead of manually sending the invite code)
    2. On Password loss, feature for the user to set his own password through email verfication link (instead of current automated password generation)

    Also, it would be great to have the 2.7 compatible version, as you may already know it has the problems:
    1. Password strength meter doesn't work
    2. Warning in Dashboard of Registerplus invite registrations

    Keep up the great work and thanks a lot.

    not sure if it would be a possibility for the register plus plugin but, it would be great if invitation codes could be used to categorize new users to specific groups or roles. I've installed advanced role managers but would love it if users could automatically be assigned appropriate groups at their initial registration with out administrative action.

    Is this something that could be done through register plus or am i looking in the wrong place?

    Is it possible to show the login fields on a page by calling say [register_plus_create] in a page/post or something like that?

    It would also be cool, if we could show a profile page by calling say: [register_plus_profile], just to let the users be rid of the backend.

    Adding to the chours - great plugin!

    And a feature ask...
    I use the "Moderate all user resgistrations to require admin approval" feature. When the admin approves the feature, a standard verificaiton email is sent. Would love to customize this email, which doesn't seem possible now.

    All the additional information fields are great. Especially if you want to build a community, like I do. But now I want to show all my members profiles through my website (I'm currently using Profiler) however, I can't show those additional fields to the public. It would be nice to have a profile page linked to the registration, where I can specify which fields to show on the profile page. Or - have Profiler be able to access those additional fields. That seems simpler and I've already mentioned it to the creator.

    Either way, bravo for a fantastic plugin!

    No, when I was using the plugin, except for the custom logo not showing up, it seemed to be displaying correctly on my site, Dan's Web Spot...

    There were some show-stopper issues, such as reCaptcha and Simple Captcha not working, scripting errors in IE7, and conflicts with other plugins, such as Lester Chan's WP-UserOnline.

    I have tried some cursory testing with individual other plugins. I use 25+ plugins and they all play nice together but Register-Plus would give me 500 Internal Server Errors and prohibit me from editing password protected posts...

    The plugin is an excellent idea, and I commend the author's efforts; for whatever reasons it seemed to be more compatible with earlier versions of WordPress. I'd actually love to see some of the Register-Plus features incorporated in the next big spin of WordPress, say v3.0?

    Wishful thinking I suppose...

    On Password loss, feature for the user to set his own password through email verfication link (instead of current automated password generation)

    I second this suggestion by one of the posters above.

    Would be very usefull to have this capability, which would eliminate the need to display the full profile page (at least for our requirements).

    On Password loss, feature for the user to set his own password through email verfication link (instead of current automated password generation)

    I second this suggestion by one of the posters above.

    I'd also love to see this.

    Also in the case where the original registration verification email was trashed before verifying, re-registering with the same email address/username isn't allowed. It would be great to have a way for the user to be able to re-request that a registration verification email be resent.

    my own server

    First, GREAT plugin. KUDOS! I use it with the invite code.

    However, looking to keep folks without an invite away from the registration page all together.

    I think what I need would result in a new feature for register-plus.

    I am wondering how difficult it would be to create another option for the invite code feature in register-plus.

    A "Display invite code entry form before displaying registration form" check box option?

    Also a selection for number of failed attempts before redirecting to specific url. With a text box for the redirect url?

    Man, am I over complicating things again or what?

    If that is not enough, what about the ability to have the login and profile actions take place in a page. So the theme can be used not the wordpress dashboard and such.

    I tried a customize your community plug in (http://www.sugarrae.com/wordpress/cyc/) but, does not play well with theme stylesheets. I even modded that plug-in, removed the stylesheets in it, made my own to no avail.

    I think your plug in is the cure all for many attempts out there.

    The only issue I had was a dashboard problem which I believe is the same one as mentioned above.

    You will see a monetary donation from me next week.
