This component makes it possible to add users to Joomla and Community Builder from the frontend. This is done by filling out a form and inserting the userdata directly in the database with mysql queries.
- Choose exactly which input fields you want to display in the backend parameters.
- Autogenerate usernames and/or passwords.
- Send notificationemails.
- Generate generic email addresses.
- Choose between user groups.
This component is a good solution when your clients dont know how to add a user from the backend. You dont have to explain to your clients anymore how to do this. With this component they can add users from the frontend in a very simple way.
Community builder and Jomsocial support:
This components also supports Community builder but you need to switch it on in the components parameters after installing! Once set to CB mode the component will also insert the user data in Community Builder, the added user will be approved and confirmed. This component is also Jomsocial compatible.
Add user frontend for Joomla 1.5 has multiple security measures to make sure that only Super Administrators and Administrators can add users from the frontend.
Add user frontend for Joomla 1.6/2.5 is more flexible because it operates under the Joomla 1.6/2.5 ACL system. This version also allows authors and above to add users. if you configure it like that. By default only Super users have acces. So be carefull with those ACL settings.
Usage of the component:
This component is very simple and can be used by everybody. But its actually intended for webdeveloppers if they want to add users from the frontend and add some extra input fields in the add user form that insert data in third party components.
Therefore i kept the code as simple as possible and put it all in one file so you can edit it very easily. People who know PHP and a little bit about MYSQL Queries can easily change this component for there own purpose.
The component writes the data to the user tables:
#__comprofiler (When CB mode is on!)
