How can I remove Agreement page and replace with checkbox on registration

Post by Tivland » Thu May 24, 2018 9:35 am

Hello good people

I just installed phpBB, using it with Flat Style theme.
I need to remove the agreement page and replace it with a checkbox on the user registration page so that when a new user clicks "Register", it skips Agreement page and goes straight to the registration page, where instead, he can check the agreement in a check box.

Note:
I have searched extensively for this online but seems the tutorials for doing this are only for Prosilver theme. How can I get this done with FLAT STYLE theme? my url is **url deleted**

Thanks in advance.
Peace

I want the user to land on the register page, without having to pass through the agreement page.

Then add a checkbox on the registration page where the user checks before submission of his registration form.

I get that but what do you want to achieve, why do you want to do this? There may be something out there, like an extension, already available.

Let me get this right. You want to remove the agreement page then you want to add a checkbox to say that they agree to the T&Cs that they have not been able to read.

You can tack &agreed=yes to the URL to skip the agreement. Do the checkbox as a custom profile field.

Lets be honest here sir, no one ever reads all that grammar. Everyone... (almost) everyone knows that. And on the checkbox the text will have a link to the T&Cs like its the case on most popular websites and even email providers.

Thanks sir. I am a newbie + I know little about codes so I will need a step by step kinda instructions on how to track the &agreed=yes and also to achieve the custom profile field thing. Thank you for your time
