was reading through the user manual and on pg. 35, first paragraph reads.

"Other than the Super Administrator’s (admin) account, that is created by default when Joomla! is
installed, there are two ways that guests have of becoming registered members on a Joomla!
web site."

-- just thought whoever does this might want to fix it.

thanks for all your hard work.

What is the problem?

Also, if a moderator picks this up, can you move it over to user documentation forum?

ok, rereading it.. i can see that i could be wrong and all could be well. it seems to be worded funny, imo.

Other than the Super Administrator’s (admin) account, that is created by default when Joomla is
installed, there are two ways that guests can/may become registered members on a Joomla
Web site.

... but then again what do i know :)

... im tempted to remove it, but i guess ill leave it ...  :pop

@Ian: never mind, I'm sure you're wondering why this regular sentence could raise an issue :)

@pasha_one: if it helps, I'm not a native english speaker and it does read funny to me as well, esp. the way you actually marked the words "have to become".

I had to read it several times to see it's actually correct.
You added a mental "comma" to the wrong spot and the many "plural forms" also make this sentence look weired: guests, ways, members.
In German (and French, iirc) it'd be fine if guests become a member. After all: each single guest will turn into *one* single member only :)

if you flip the ordering you could write (but certainly incorrect in english):
guests have two ways    to become registered members
there are two ways that guests have      of becoming registered members

Have fun,

It is correct...

I would agree though that it is awkwardly constructed.
