How do I add a form to register new users?

Post by tommyvin711 » Wed Nov 28, 2018 5:14 pm

I asked a similar question a long time ago and got a good answer. The answer told me how to insert an ACP Add User link under the User and Groups tab. It works perfectly. But now I want to know how I did it so I can show a friend. He wants to register new users - username, password, and email address. So how can he put the ACP Add User link on his ACP page?

Thanks

there is a extension for phpb 3.1/3.2 boards found here:
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... dd_user_2/

if using 3.0.x there is a MOD that does the same thing.

You've asked that question before and received a satisfactory answer. So why not use the information in that answer to show your friend how it was accomplished (and can be repeated)?

The other way to do this, and it's less work, is to use the antispam Q&A to set a question saying to enter the code you've been sent. Email each person a specific random code and they can then register themselves but only people who know the code can do that.

You need to upgrade because 3.0 is no longer supported.

My forum has been working perfectly for many years. I thank the phpBB support team for the help they gave me. But now I want to show a friend how I register new users while keeping out the multiple bogus ad posts. Looking back over my previous posts and answers by the support team, I can't find the ones that might help him.

I have the ACP add users link (version 1.0.3) at the bottom of Manage Groups section (under Users and Groups). Is there a tutorial I could give my friend that would tell him how to get this ACP add user link and insert it in the right place?

People write me an email with their username and password. I click on the ACP add user and insert their username, email address, and password in the forum that appears. Then I click Submit. The new user is registered. Then I send an email to the new user telling him he is registered.

I also got rid of the "Register" box that appears when one clicks on the log in box at the top right of the opening page. I wonder how I did that.

To turn off registration you would have gone to the admin panel> user registration settings > account activation > disable

The user add extension is this
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... dd_user_2/

Then you just need to explain to them how you add users.

Kev C,

I just gave Frank your instructions. Here's what he wrote back:

The instructions we have received from phpBB (which you emailed to me) are clear and located at ACP > CUSTOMIZE (or CUSTOM). I'm supposed download the extension (which I've done) and then put it into the "ext directory" of my phpBB board.

Question: Where is this ext directory?

Where can Frank find the ext directory?

And further to that do you know which version of phpBB you're running?

Frank is running the 3.2.4 version of phpBB - "Your phpBB installation is up to date"

When I click on the Customise tab, and then on the Extension Management heading, I see how to install an extension in three steps. The "Clean Name" is phpbb modders/adduser

Frank, though, does not have that adduser link to click on. Is there a solution for Frank? Some step-by-step solution that he can follow.

He does understand the FTP protocol.

In the folder where you have your forum and your config.php file you will have a folder called /ext

Extract the zip file from the download and upload the /phpbbmodders folder to /ext

Then in the customise tab you will have the extension listed to activate.

The ability to add users is then in the users and groups tab.

If an extension is in a wrong folder one wont be able to see it.
Structure => phpbb_root/ext/vendor_name/extension_name/all files and folders are here
