Registration Permissions Panel
This panel is where you define if users can register an account for themselves, and if so, what their default permissions will be – in other words: what User Group they will belong to.
New users can register
- No (Only admins can create new users)
- Users can register only by providing an Invitation code/link. See: Invitation Codes
- Users can register themselves freely
If you check this, links & buttons to register will be clearly advertised to the public.
If you don’t check this, people will still be able to register but only if they are explicitly given a link to the registration form. Maybe useful for cutting down on spam registration for community sites with a finite number of members.
Check to allow registering with email only (no username & no password will be required) using the Email capture / Quick registration widget.
Group for new users
This is the User Group that will be assigned to users who register without an invitation code (an invitation code may assign a different group).
Level for new users
This is the User Level that will be assigned to users who register without an invitation code (an invitation code may assign a higher level).
