User Registration Subsites - Multistes

  1. So my intent is simple:

    Multisite has a form for "Register" which creates a Subscriber Role
    Then another for "Join" which has a payment condition, and creates a Contributor role.

    So can registration update a username/email profile role, not just create new?

    What would happen if I used something like this telling it to ignore users:

    Would it still update the Role on the subsite regardless of duplicate email, or would it create extra emails?

    What about concern of dummies entering multiple username variations? Email is constant, but username could be an error. will it make multiple accounts under that email/username? I could see that becoming a problem

    Is there any ajax/js we can add so when they tab out, it queries the database to see what the username is for that account? Or do i not need to worry about multiple usernames under 1 email address?

  2. The 1.5 beta version of the user registration add-on can update profiles. Have you already taken a look at that?

    I see the option is set to allow New User or Update User.

    @chris hajer - or other staff

    If update user is present, i assume it would overwrite the current user's password ?? (security flaw?)

    My intent is to allow new user / site registration off a form, so would it be more appropriate to do an "ignore error" message type of customization, so it ignores the error if duplicate user exists, and still creates a website under that username/email?

  5. I'll ask the development team what happens in the case of a password field.

  6. Its seems like the user reg form shouldnt be replaced with Gform. Update may work, but the simple option of adding a new site is not possible as an existing user, correct?

  7. When using the beta version of User Registration, if you choose the "Update User" action, then the Password mapping field is set to "Preserve current password" and has no other option; it isn't changed.

    Can you restate your other questions please? It seems like we have multiple, unrelated issues. Thanks.

  8. Its not really designed to act as a true replacement allowing one form to create new subsites in multisite.
