Registration Module

User Registration
Not compatible with Beta3 use a recent git version.

Description

This module for Gallery 3 can be used to allow administrators to create and implement a policy to allow visitors to register as users. Its strongly encouraged that if you are using this module, you should enable the recaptcha module as well.

Available Policies:

  • Only site administrators can create new user accounts.
The register module is installed, but effectively disabled. All user creation follows the normal gallery3 defaults as defined by current identity provider.
  • Visitors can create an account without confirmation nor admin approval
If this approach is implemented, After an anonymous user fills in the registration form, their user account is created, they are automatically logged in, and a welcome dialog displays that allows them to set their password from the randomly generated default.
  • Visitors can create an account with confirmation email and no admin approval
Under this approach, after a user fills out the registration form, an email is sent to the address they specified. It contains a link that they can use to confirm their desire for an account. Once they confirm their account, the account is enabled, they are logged into Gallery3 and a welcome dialog displays that allows them to set their password from the randomly generated default
  • Visitors can create an account with confirmation and admin approval
In this approach, after a user fills out the registration form, an email is sent to the address they specified. It contains a link that they can use to confirm their desire for an account. Once they confirm their account a message is displayed indicating there request is waiting for administrator approval. Once the administrator approves their request, another email is sent indicating that their account has been created. It contains a link that allows a first time login which will request them to change their password from the randomly generated default
  • The users can be attached to a default group.
In order to enable this feature, at least one group besides Everybody and Registered Users must have been created.
