Customizing the regular joomla registration procedure can be a lot of work, and it gets even more complicated when you have a lot of components installed on your Joomla that all need synchronization. Sometimes you wish you could add some extra fields to your registration page in a simple way, without searching dozens of php and html documents in your joomla CMS.
That’s why I made One click registration for joomla. This component is very simple and can be used by everybody. But it’s actually intended for webdevelopers. They can add more input fields in the "registration form" and create additional SQL queries to insert data in the joomla database. This can come in handy when you want to integrate with other joomla extensions.
Joomla is one of the most used CMS systems in the world. A standard joomla installation is almost inhackable. Yet a lot of Joomla websites get hacked these days, why is this?
Well a lot of websites have 3rd party extensions installed which are not included in the joomla core. Those extensions can be downloaded from the joomla extension directory for example. A lot of these extensions are completely safe but some contain leaks which can be abused by hackers.
You can check if your extensions are safe on:
Keep your extensions up to date
it’s also important to keep the 3rd party extensions that you use up to date. Sometimes the developers find leaks in their scripts and fix them. You can’t benefit from those updates if you don’t keep your eye on your installed extensions.
Some people might ask themselves the question: 'why do you want to add a user from the frontend to joomla?’ Well the answer to that question is very simple. The backend of joomla is too complicated for some users. If you are a webdeveloper or if you have a webdesign company you know what I am talking about.
Clients can get confused when seeing so much data and options. They don’t know which fields to fill in and which fields to leave open. That’s why I decided to make this component. You can configure the component to only show the input fields which are really necessary.
You will never have to explain to your clients again how to add a user from the backend. With this component they can add users from the frontend in a very simple way. They will just see the fields they need to see.
Another nice thing about add user frontend is that you can use it to integrate with other joomla extensions. By default the component can be integrated with Community builder, Jomsocial and K2 without any knowledge of PHP/HTML.
