Configuring One click registration
After installing the component like i explained in "Install One click registration" you must configure the component for your website. When you are logged in to the backend of your website. You do the following.
1. Go to Components -> One click registration
2. Click on the parameters/options button on the top right
3. Choose your settings.
4. Click on Save.
You can also configure the component at the menu-item in the menumanager. This will give you the possibility to run multiple instances of the component with different settings. This can come in handy if you want to let user register to multiple usergroups. (It can do other stuff too)
You can make multiple links to the component. For example you can create a link called "Register as a normal member" and another link called "Register as an author". Now you just have to configure that users registering by link1 are registered members and users registering by link2 are authors.
How can i define these settings?
When making the link in the menu manager you will see a box to the right called "Parameters (Component)" this is in Joomla 1.5. In Joomla 1.6, 1.7 and 2.5 you will see a similar box but its called "One click registration".
In this box you will see the component settings for that menuitem only. These settings override the global component settings. This gives you a lot more possibility's using the component.
