Login module without create account feature?

Postby c0nfus3ds0ul » Thu Sep 11, 2008 3:47 am

Hi, the requirement given to me by my superiors was to have a site that had a login functionality, but yet, users are only allowed to have an account when they are confirmed to be members.

So, how is this done? Basically, my organisation has several heads, which are in charge of clusters of members.

They were supposed to submit details of all the members to me to manually input into the site's database through the user manager function.

Their username is preset to their unique email address, and a default password is given to them, where they can change upon login.

But, to have this system in place, i cannot have visitors creating accounts on the fly without my knowledge, using the create account feature.

Is there a way to disable the create account feature in the login module?

Or, is there another login module out there that disables it?

Regards,
Isaac. ;)

SOLVED!

As i was exploring my administration functions, i realised that i could disable this setting in the global configuration settings.

Regards,
Isaac.

For those of you that could use a little more information, these are the steps to remove the Create an Account link which is part of the Login module.

1) Goto Global Configuration
2) Click the System link
3) Under User Settings, look for Allow User Registration.
4) Select No
5) Click Save

When you go back to your site, you will see that the link no longer appears. Thanks a lot for your help, c0nfus3ds0ul!

Is there a way to disable the create an account link in the LOGIN module without disabling the global registration?

I ask this because the Create an Account link in the login module points to the Joomla registration, but I have JomSocial installed also and I need every user to register through the Jomsocial and fill out all the necessary profile information.

You could disable Joomla Registrationfirstly, http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions ... ation/1236

And use JoomSocial registration. (Im not sure if Joomsocial has a default registration module).

If it doesn't you could use a customized Login Module like YooLogin Module, http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions ... ation/4421


Hope this helps ;)

Kaavs, thanks for the reply. When I disable the Joomla registration, the Jomsocial registration gets disabled as well.

??? I disabled the registration as indicated above but it still appears. Can someone advise how I can remove it - it must be another module that I'm not aware of?

depends on how new users are able to register. If you're using a module then try removing the registration link.

Goto: Modules-> Mod_Login-> tmpl -> default.php

Then remove the section:

Code: Select all

      
<li>
<a href="<?php echo JRoute::_( 'index.php?option=com_user&task=register' ); ?>">
<?php echo JText::_('REGISTER'); ?></a>
</li>

Thanks for this!



By the way, how can I do this?

I want new users to be able to register but I don't want them to be able to automatically validate and activate their account. I want to have control to which account I activate.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Lee,

I tried this, but the module still shows the link. If I rename the mod_login folder, it doesn't load the login module ( as expected ) , but changing any code in the default.php file doesn't seem to make a difference.

Am I having a DFU moment :)

Yes, please post what steps you took. These forums become useless when the solution is not listed. It's just a lot of dead ends with no help, answers or steps to solve the issue. Please post your steps so you can help others having the same problem. :-\

The steps are you go to the file that is mentioned above and what i did is i left the above section with comments. Hence:

Code: Select all

<!--<li>/*
<a href="<?php echo JRoute::_( 'index.php?option=com_user&view=register' ); ?>">
<?php echo JText::_('REGISTER'); ?></a>
</li>
<?php endif; ?>
*/ -->

That step actually did not work for me - well, not by itself at least.

The reason why it would not work for me is because there was a module in the template that was overriding the mod_login under modules.

Once that entire module was removed, I was able to link the "Create an Account" to my Chronoforms registration form and/or remove the link.

You can easily disable "create account" on front end in joomla 1.7 by doing the following:

1. Login to joomla 1.7 backend
2. Go to users and click user manager
3. click the option tab on the top right
4. go to allow user registration and select NO
5. save and close

you are done

That only works if you want to disable it COMPLETELY. I needed it functioning but not visible because if you disable it then the Chronoforms form I created to serve as the registration would not work. Regardless, I got it working.

ARRRRRGGGGG! HELP!

I have a site using Joomla 1.5.25 and I cannot for the life of me figure out what's going on. I unpublished, and even went so far as to delete the modules-->mod_login from my site (after backing it up of course) and the thing is still showing. My reason for doing this is because I noticed when I want to remove the "Register" text from the page, it still showed after following the instructions above.

Can someone take a peek at it?

http://www.canusgoatsmilk.com/index.php

Below the fold, on the right, is a module in the user8 position that says, "Wholesaler Login" - click that and you'll see what I mean.

The modules-->mod_login folder is not there on the server! And I double checked the templates folder, and there are no overrides in there!!!

Thanks for any quick help!

Hey mate,

you edited the wrong mod. The one you need to edit is at :

components/com_user/views/login/tmpl/default_login.php.

find the following code:

Code: Select all

<!--<li>
      <a href="<?php echo JRoute::_( 'index.php?option=com_user&view=register' ); ?>">
         <?php echo JText::_('REGISTER'); ?></a>
   </li>--!>


and make the comments as i did.

Peace.

P.S. Which slider do you use there?

I want the create and account to be in the login module, but I am wondering if there is any way to have it hidden so when there is a valid user account needed I can just send them an email with the link to the create an account page, is this possible?

Also when you talk about editing components/com_user/views/login/tmpl/default_login.php will this not be overwritten when there is a new Joomla update?

Have you solved the above problem? I have the same trouble here. :(

Navigate to Users User Manager then click on User Manager. Once in User Manager Screen, click on 'Options' Toolbar button to show the pop up window, as in image above. Click to fill bubble next to Allow user registration, then click save.
