How to add a Registration Page?

I have been unable to locate the help for adding a Registration page?  Since it was pre-defined (built) by you and we have little or no control over it I thought it would have been in the Drop-Down list-box of objects but I was unable to find it there.

Can you please point me to the help pages on this subject?

Re: How to add a Registration Page?

Hi Phill, you don't need to create a registration page like you create other mojoPortal content. Just like the search, login, and other core pages, registration is actually a real standalone aspx page. To get the "register" link to show up in your layout.master, make sure the following is present:

<portal:RegisterLink id="RegisterLink" runat="server" RenderAsListItem="true" />

This is documented in Understanding the Layout.master file. Keep in mind that the register link won't appear if you are signed into the site, or if new user registration is disabled for your site (through site settings). I believe you can place this link into other areas of the site, but you'll need to make sure that the id field is unique if it appears in more than one place (e.g. id="RegisterLink" for the first instance, and id="RegisterLink1" for the second).

If you want, you can also create a custom Registration Agreement that must be acknowledged when users register.

Re: How to add a Registration Page?

Hi Jamie,

Thanks for the insight.  I understand what you are saying and I did fond the RegisterLink on the Layout.master page. 

I guess what I would like to do is offer the user a bigger link to the page.  Some are not smart enough to look at the top of the page!

I also noticed that on the Login Page on some of the templates have the options of using your AOL, Live, or Google information.  How can I turn that feature on in my Login page?

Thanks

Re: How to add a Registration Page?

Jamie,

Is there a method to have the Login show up as an item in say the right column on the Home page?

Hi Phill,

You can use the "Sign-In" module but you will need to have at least version 2.3.5.8 in order to get that feature.

Hope this helps,
Joe D.

Re: How to add a Registration Page?

Hi Phill, you can add an HTML instance to your home page, that's dedicated to inviting people to register. Put in some introductory text along with a register text or image link like this (updated per Joe D.'s message below):

<a href="/secure/register.aspx" title="Register" >Register for an Account</a>

If you want that register link to stand out, you can surround it with header tags like <h1>, <h2>, make it bold, use an image, etc.

After this, go into the settings of the HTML instance, and on the General tab, check the box that says "Hide from authenticated users." After that, if will only appear if you're logged out, so if you need to edit the HTML instance, you'll need to get to it via Administration, Content Manager.

Re: How to add a Registration Page?

Hey Jamie,

You can't include .NET controls in the editors because that content is rendered after build-time.

If you want to use a Register link in content, just use a regular link, like so:

<a href="/secure/register.aspx" title="Register" >Register for an Account</a>

HTH,
Joe D.

Re: How to add a Registration Page?

Thanks guys,

The Sign-In module did the trick... and I didn't have to mess with any pages (html code stuff)...

Thanks again

Re: How to add a Registration Page?

Okay guys... you fooled me!

I am running v2.3.5.5 on the public site & v2.3.5.8 on my local machine

Is it an easy upgrade from 2.3.5.5 to 2.3.5.8?  Will it break anything?

OR

Is there a method of just adding the SiteLogin Module?

I would like to get the Site-Login-Module which is a great addition.

Thanks

Re: How to add a Registration Page?

Hi Phil,

Upgrading is fairly straight forward, nevertheless there is always a possibility to break things if you don't do it correctly.

http://www.mojoportal.com/upgrading.aspx

fyi it won't be long until the next release of mojoPortal, probably by the end of the week so you could just wait and upgrade after that.

Best,

Joe
