Email capture / Quick registration widget
When placed in the sidebar, the main area, or any Container you like, this widget will display a form to capture the User’s email (and optional additional fields). This will quickly create an account for the User and register him to one or more email lists and/or it will register him to notifications about the current collection.
At a minimum, the capture form will have:
- A field named "Your email:" requiring an email address.
- A submit button with configurable text. Default: "Sign up!"
Optionally, you can also request first and/or last name:
User account creation: When submitting the form, if there is no error, a user account will be created without a password (the User may later request a password using the "Lost password" option). If no firstname has been provided, a username will be generated by taking out the
abc.def part of an email like
firstname.lastname@example.org (the valid chars depend on Login & Registration Security Panel ).
Asking for additional user details: After the email capture, you may or may not ask the user for more info, including a password. See: Options for All Registration Methods Panel.
- Quick registration must be enabled in Standard Registration Panel, otherwise the widget will display an error message.
- If the User is already logged in, this widget will display nothing.
This widget can also be called within any Post/Article/Page content by using the Emailcapture Short Tag.
