change registration.php

Category: German

This topic was originally posted in the K 3.0 General Questions category (this is the original link: www.kunena.org/forum/k-3-0-general-quest...istration-php#162693) partly in English and partly in German.

The original question (translated into English):

Zuckerhut wrote: Hi, we need help to change the registration!

The new form should have:

- rename the field name to last name
- additional the first name
- when it comes User Profile and associated fields omit!
- then you have the post of a contribution first name and last name appear


Yes, it would have been better if the whole question had been asked in English but it also may have been better if the answer had been written in English, too.

For the benefit of others who may like to read the answer in English:

Kunena has nothing to do with the registration. This is done via Joomla. You can customise the Joomla registration form by enabling the plugin "User - Profile" and there make your desired setting changes active.

The only option in Kunena is in the setting "Configuration> Users> Show Name = No", then the real name is displayed instead of the user name. To display name and surname in contributions, the user would have to have registered both name and surname enter on the same line.


rich is correct. This similar question has been asked before in this forum. The answer is

Kunena is not responsible for user registration or login

Forum send emails to all users when new user registers.

neotox428 wrote: ...if you were to register on my site ever single user on my site would receive an email with the following:

Hello administrator,

A new user 'Gregtest', username 'gregtest', has registered at mydomain.com

This makes total, reasonable sense for site administrators to receive such emails but it does not make sense for normal/unprivileged, registered users to receive such emails unless you have modified the access rights, in the backend, to give your registered users elevated privileges to this Joomla feature.

As I have written before on this forum , unlike standalone forum applications (e.g. phpBB) Kunena is not responsible for user registration or for the processes surrounding user registration.

neotox428 wrote: No one is a admin on my site except me so that isn't the case so they shouldn't get the mail.

If this is the case then I agree. No-one—except for administrators—should receive these kinds of emails.

According to the official Joomla documentation , the setting Receive System Emails only applies to site administrators. Therefore, it does not matter what setting you're using because they should not receive these kinds of emails ... unless you have changed the default Joomla access level permissions in the backend (see, among other things, Every new user has Administrator rights ).

neotox428 wrote: ... each individual user you can change receive system email ... but would you want to click on 1000 users and change this?

The normal, default setting for Receive System Emails is "No" (for normal unprivileged users) unless you have changed something; the default value for system administrators is "Yes" (again, unless you have changed something). This setting, notwithstanding, in a standard, well-behaved Joomla installation, it should not really matter what value you have set this to as far as this discussion is concerned. The situation only applies if the user has the setting Receive System Emails = Yes and if that user is an administrator (or has administrator access to the registration component).

If I had more information about your website — unfortunately I am not a moderator on this forum and therefore I do not have access to the confidential information in your configuration report — I might be able to help you more. I'm doing the best I can with the information that you've given.

I don't know what exactly is the "problem".

Are you saying that, for example, if I registered at your website, all other "registered" users would receive an email informing them of my registration? Is that what you are suggesting? Perhaps all your other "registered" users are, in fact, administrators ?

I have looked at your Kunena configuration report. I would suggest that you enable the Kunena - Kunena plugin .

This is a good question but it is not really a question about Kunena. I disagree with 810's answer to your question which is about how to use Joomla ACL permissions—these things only apply after a user has registered—and not about how to verify who registers at your website before they are able to login and use the forum.

There are many ways that you can use Joomla to verify who joins/registers at your website. For example:

How to change profile username?

Category: K 3.0 General Questions Archive

Kunena uses Joomla.

See User registration and/or general login issues .

You can change your existing Joomla super user account name with the Joomla User Manager.

If you do not want to use your Joomla super user account when you use the forum, create a new, different account in Joomla as a "registered user" and assign global moderator permissions to that new account.

I do not know anything about jEvents or how that extension has anything to do with this issue, sorry.

1) Go to the Joomla Plugin Manager.

2) Enable the User - Profile plugin (see image below):



3) Edit the parameters of this plugin.

Yes, that's the answer!

Community Builder » Configuration » Registration » Allow User Registration = Yes, independently of global site setting

I knew that I remembered seeing something like that in the CB configuration settings when I last used CB some years ago! :cheer:

No registration link

Category: Community Builder

It's possible that this may be a problem with integrating K 3.0.6 and Community Builder.

I don't use CB these days. I have several websites where I am using K 3.0.6 and the registration link appears OK.

The registration link will not appear (on Kunena without CB) if you have have disabled registration in Joomla. To disable registration in Joomla you go to Users » User Manager » Options » Allow User Registration = No

This setting stops the registration link appearing in the Kunena profile box at the top of the forum.

I remember reading a long time ago that this is what Joomlapolis recommends you should do. I may have remembered it wrong but I think that's what I read when I last used CB and Kunena (which was about three years ago), so this may not be right.

My suggestion is to check your Joomla "user manager" settings first. Then check the CB documentation to see what Joomlapolis recommends. If something has changed in K 3.0.6 then this is a matter to be worked out between the Joomlapolis and Kunena developers.

G'day, Claire, and welcome to Kunena. May I suggest that you read msg #2 of User registration and/or general login issues .

Problems relating to sending email to a person who wants to register their account at your site are not caused by Kunena. Kunena uses your Joomla email settings. If you have problems with email I suggest that you look carefully at the email settings you are using for your website. I hope this helps.

K 3.0.5: Registration does not work

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

Kunena is not responsible for account registration. Please see User registration and/or general login issues

The message means that there is already an account registered on your website that has the same username as the one that you are trying to use. You need to use a different username. Also, the message about passwords not matching means exactly that.

These messages are not generated by Kunena. You might also find this reference helpful: stackoverflow.com/questions/13215094/wha...r-name-in-joomla-2-5 (the information is also similar for J! 3.x).

Newbie - with several questions!

Which is essentially no different to the small group of people who volunteer their time to keep this forum clean and focused on the needs of the community as a whole. ;)

feste wrote: [My site is] ... a live site on which I am experimenting with the forum and I am keen to avoid/minimize the attentions of spambots.

Unfortunately it is a fact of life that some sites attract more attention than other sites.

A little "off-topic", perhaps but, as you opened this wide-ranging subject, you may be interested in learning from some of our experiences.

I have a very small website with four accounts. I do not wnat more than these four accounts. It is a website for testing Kunena. The four accounts are (a) the administrator account, (b) a "normal" unprivileged account, (c) a forum moderator's account and (d) a banned user's account. There is nothing on this site except for the Kunena forum.

There are 6 topics with a total of 41 messages posted on this forum. The first message was posted two months ago and the last message was posted 1 week ago. The messages are a collection of tests to demonstrate that Kunena's features operate; basically it's "me" posting to "myself".

The template is the standard, unmodified Joomla Beez20 template. No-one can join my website without obtaining my permission - in other words, "automatic" registrations have been disabled. I did not submit this website to Google for indexing.

Now that I hope you've gotten the picture - how utterly boring my website is (I'm sure you wouldn't be at all interested) - I receive about 3 emails every day in response to automated attempts to register accounts. In other words, in spite of all reasonable steps I've taken to not "advertise" the existence of this website, someone is interested in the challenge of trying to crash through the site's security.

Once upon a time I used to think that it was mainly a certain genre of websites that attracted spam but the reality is that any website can be the target of spam. Therefore, whether your website is for people who are interested in online gaming, gambling, videos (the areas that attract the most spam) or a site for the academic discussion of the Scottish language (an area that is likely to attract a narrow degree of following), spam can happen anywhere.


I encourage you to read How to protect my forum from spam .

Replied by sozzled on topic Allow Joomla login

Newbie - with several questions!

Category: K 3.0 General Questions Archive

feste wrote: 1. Somewhere I think I ticked a box saying 'allow Joomla login' but can't find where that was! as I think I need to reverse it. The effect I would like is to enable registered users of the website to be able to post without further login if that's possible.

I think the answer to this issue is covered (in extensive detail) in the topic User registration and/or general login issues .

Basically the situation is this:
  1. Kunena is a Joomla extension.
  2. Access to the forum is controlled by Joomla.
  3. When people create an account at your site they login to your site with some kind of login process. Whatever login process they use to login to your website will also give them access to your forum.

And that's pretty much it. I'm not quite sure what you meant by wanting to "reverse" whatever you did but it doesn't really matter. If you give your users a place on your website where they can login then they're "logged in" to the forum.

Looking at your configuration report, you've set the option Plugin Manager » Kunena - Kunena » Allow Joomla Login = No. If you want to turn it back to it's origial setting, use the Plugin Manager in the backend, find the integration plugin I mentioned, and change the option.
