Introduction

User Management, Site Access

Add User Frontend makes it possible to add users to Joomla from the frontend. It will even allow authors to add users if you set the right permissions. But by default only super users have acces. However we advice you to be carefull with those settings. Dont use these if you dont know what you are doing.

  • Get this

This component is also a good solution when your clients dont know how to add users from the backend. Just install Add User Frontend and you can stop explaining over and over again how to do this.

Add User Frontend is very simple and can be used by anybody. But it was originally made for webdeveloppers. They can add their own input fields to the "add user form" and add additional SQL queries to insert data in the database.

This can come in handy when you want to integrate with other joomla extenions for example. You need to have basic PHP/HTML knowledge to do so. You can find appropriate documentation on this website.

Basic functions:
- Add a registered user to Joomla from the frontend
- Allow authors and higher to add users
- Choose what to do if a username already exists
- Choose if you want to check for existing mails or not
- Sync with Jomsocial

Pro version only:
- Choose exactly which input fields you want to use
- Autogenerate username and password
- Add users to other usergroups from the frontend
- Send notification emails when a user is added
- Send admin notification emails when a user is added
- Choose usergroup to which new users will be added at the frontend
- Add users to a custom usergroup
- Use emailaddress as username
- Create users with autogenerated (fake) email
- Also add users to Community Builder right away
- Customize notification email without technical knowledge

This extension is excellent! Does excactly what you expect. Perfekt for my intranet. Where users PC knowlege is very limited. Can be simple og more advanced.



Recommended!!!


I used for 1 day as a user and a programmer. From user perspective this component is simple and effective.

From developer prespective i had the need to change "password" field to show "bullets" instead of the password. In my opinion if you are building a component you need to stay as close as possible from MVC structure defined by joomla to make it easy to extend and understand. In your component, despite of the great work, you have mixed model/view in same file, making it dificult to understand.I spent more time finding the "input element" than changing it.


I love it. But for me it's one big drawback. Scandinavian characters. ÆÅØ. These are not getting placed in the database as they should.

Owner's reply: Well actually this issue has to do with your database collation. Scandinavian characters are saved to the database correctly ;)

One of a kind

Thanks for bringing this overlooked and much needed functionality to Joomla. I have it installed on a client site and it does exactly what it claims and with great ease at that. Highly recommended!


Great Tool!!!!!

I am just wrapping up a website for a client that has taken one look at the backend of Joomla 1.7, and decided he wanted no part of it. I set up their site structure and he uses the edit icons available when logged in the front to update his pages, but we were having issues with how to add users.

This component is AWESOME. I found it this morning, put it on his site, and then called him and had him try it. He loves how easy it is.



Thanks and keep up the great work!!


This is a fantastic component that does just what it says. This feature is missing from Community Builder so this was a great find. I also found it very easy to add my extra fields following the guide on the authors website.


thanks..

Thank you for your job! you really save my time.

I used this component for CB+Joomla + I add some extra fields for CB.


Installs quickly and easily and does exactly what it says. I am using this function to allow a new administrator to add users via the front-end and it works well.



Thanks for your good work.


Extension does what it says, has good options and a helpful developer behind it. I have been building a web cemetery using community builder and i was looking for my users an option to quickly add family members, without the need to reregister with extra email/per account. This fix is simple with this component as it generated generic email addresses and simplyfies registration flow. Becouse of security reasons add user via front end is currently available only for admins and super admins. But if there would be an option also for registered user to add a new registered user I would rate this extension with 5 stars.

This component is very simple and can be used by everybody. But its actually intended for webdeveloppers that need some special input fields in the joomla registration form that insert data in third party components. Therefore i kept the code as simple as possible and put it all in one file so you can edit it very easily. Customizing the regular registration procedure can be a lot of work, and it gets even more complicated when you have a lot of components installed on youre Joomla that all need to be up to date. People who know PHP and a little bit about MYSQL Queries can easily edit this component. Community builder and Jomsocial support: This components also supports Community builder but you need to switch it on in the components parameters after installing! Once set to CB mode the component will also insert the user data in Community Builder, the added user will be approved and confirmed. This component is also Jomsocial compatible. Basic functions: - Choose exactly which input fields you want to use - Optional antispam question. - User email notification - Admin email notification - Choose usergroup - Community builder compatible Pro version only: - Customize notification email without technical knowledge - Choose a custom usergroup by ID - Redirect after registration - Use reCAPTCHA to limit SPAM Need K2 integration? get the K2 user sync plugin for One click registration at: http://www.joomlacy.com/extensions/plugins/k2-user-sync-for-one-click-registration/ Need more languages? http://www.joomlacy.com/extensions/language-files/ New in version 1.4.3: - Customize notification email easely - Fixed some compatibility issues New in version 1.4.2: - Joomla 3.0 compatible New in version 1.4.1: - Added reCAPTCHA as an option to reduce fake registrations New in version 1.4.0: - Fixed problem (Changed onAfterStoreUser to onUserAfterSave for J.2.5) - Some minor bugs fixed New in version 1.3.9: - Fixed small password bug New in version 1.3.8: - Autologin can be turned off New in version 1.3.7: - Fixed some small bugs New in version 1.3.6: - Completly Joomla 2.5 compatible - Admin notification email

This plugin makes add user frontend work together with K2. When you add a user in add user frontend this plugin will add the user to the K2 userlist and assign it to the user group of your choice. Attention: You cant choose which user group you want to add the user to in the add user form. You can only configure it in the plugin parameters backend! So on the frontend you will be limited to one user group.
