COMPLETE FEATURE LIST:
The developer is responsive to any support queries via a forum and is actively improving the product based on feedback. Yes, it's a commercial product but, quite honestly, not a lot for what you are getting.
Documentation covers the basics well, but is not extensive, however this is addressed with very prompt and helpful support.
Well worth the investment, if you need more than the standard joomla registration (such as capturing some info).
Well worth its money for what you get, now you can organize your customers(?), users(?) etc.. very simple.
Also has alot of language-files, and very easy to translate!
Recommend it to everyone as a must have!
Initially though I found the extension hard to customise. While I am a PHP developer, I blame this on my relative lack of in-depth Joomla knowledge.
Any questions I had though were fairly promptly answered on the extendedreg forums. I was having a particular problem with an element of the extension and didn't seem to be able to get the help I needed on the forum. After this the developer skyped me personally and walked through fixing the problem until it was resolved and was very helpful in getting it fixed.
The developer said that in the next edition there would be a fix for the problem I was having.
I'm quite happy with this purchase and would consider buying other extensions from jvitals in the future.
The folks at JVitals have once again raised the bar on "cool" and "useful" - previously with agora now with this.
I found it to be easy to use, very powerful and quite frankly likely will find its way into our next product release website!
My current solution was a mix of mods and coms using Chronoforms to create the form and handle the registration and xiadminapprove for the approval part. It took ages to get right and although there is more flexibility with Chronoforms to create the form just how you want it is a long process if all you want is to capture an address for your prospective users!
So on the the extension...Its in early stages so I expect this will go from being excellent to being THE extension for user registration on J1.5. So far I have tested its functions and can say it just works as it says. But the most important thing is its simple and quick.
I know its a paid extension but hey the price is less than a few beers and the time it saves is well worth it.
Unzip the files locally and install using Joomlas install system. Set up the parameters and use the modules supplied instead of the Joomla ones and basically thats it. Ensure you have the plugin enabled! Add an extra field and its added to the registration form...add another and thats added to the end...change order and use different types of entry types such as text boxes, check boxes, radio buttons etc and hey presto it all works.
Each email that is sent to the user is easily changed to make your site more user friendly.
The extra data is stored separately on the database and can easily be viewed using the extended user view which is identical to the Joomla view but has all the extra information relating to your extra fields.
I have suggested a couple of improvements and must say the response was almost instant! They tell me they will include these improvments soon so watch this space.
Ability to select a landing page once the user confirms the email address
The ability to export the user details to a csv file or similar
I hope this helps and really cannot praise this highly enough.
No need to register on their site to buy...just select what you want, checkout and you get an email with the extension attached minutes later!

I especially like all the auto responders that you can setup for new accounts and also that I can see the IP address of the person registering so I can pre-screen their location for possible spam hot spots.
This extension is something Joomla core should of had all along. Definitely worth the cost of the license. Thank you J-Vitals!
