User Management

RegReminder Lite encourages users to complete the registration process with a Reminder / Notification Emails. And allows you to keep you user list clean by deleting users who never complete the registration process.

  • Get this

This component will provide the ability to manage these users by sending out reminder emails encouraging them to activate their accounts or login. If after a given time period the accounts are still not activated or they have not logged in the component gives you the ability to optionally delete these accounts.

- Send reminder emails to users who have not verified their email address
- Option to delete users who have not activated their account after a given time period
- Set the number of days before a user can be deleted once a notification has been sent
- BCC the system administrator on all emails
- Identifies when a user has activated their account
- Support for Community Builder to send out the community builder activation link (this needs to be turned on in the parameters screen)
- Limit the number of emails that are sent. Some hosting companies will only allow a set number of emails per hours. You can now control how many reminder emails this component will send.

**** This is an Admin Component only. There is no Frontend functionality

If you have used this component please remember to vote and/or review it.

I recently published a community site with over 100 members in it and right away there were those that claimed they did not get their email with the link to finish registration despite the fact that as the mail server owner I can prove otherwise. Rather than argue a useless point, I purchased the upgraded version of this plugin so I won't be having that disagreement in the future nor will I need to micromanage users. If they don't complete the registration the system will email them every day with the completion link until they do. After 30 days any uncompleted registrations will be deleted. That is what I want it to do and that is what it does. I may integrate this with another front end user manager component that will allow the site owners to micro manage if necessary and will update this if I deem it worthwhile.

Awesome Joomla Plug in

This rates as one of the best admin tools in the extensions directory. Now when a user emails to complain about something that isn't working for them, I can experience it from their perspective. Awesome!

Good but limited

Posted on 08 October 2012

It works fine and easily. However the functionality is limited - note that the description in this page doesn't match the actual functionalities as shown in the Lite/Standard comparison matrix. The Lite version does the same than the "Blocked Users Reactivate Plugin" extension which is free.

Owner's reply: Thanks for the feedback. The description on this page has be updated to reflect functionality in the LITE version. The LITE version of RegReminder is also free.
The full functionality list and comparison matrix between LITE and STANDARD versions has also been updated on the developers website. This should now hopefully not cause any confusion.

big difference

Since I installed this little script I have retained on average 4 out of 5 members that didn't complete the registration process the first time. Most will complete the registration on the first reminder and a few with the second.

Easy install and set up.

Awesome, Thumbs up to you guys. Thank you.

I do not undertand why joomla have not integrated this to their core files?

Thank to regreminder my life is easier!

compatible with Community builder

I can now track which members have not completer their registration and can send them quickly a reminder

Such a fantastic tools!!!

Thank you so much!

Ps: buy the standard version it worth it!

Excellent Component

Does exactly what it says on the tin, simple, clean and efficient. Installed on my directory site, now i don't have to delete users manually if they have not confirmed their registration. Will definately consider upgrade to full version for extra functions. Set the parameters (of which there are 5) and that's it, click on the Reminders and Deletions button for the list of unverified users then select the Execute Actions button to send the reminders or delete the users. Also has a send test email button that will send an email to you so you can see what the reminder emails that are sent out will look like. Cool :)

Great component

This is a great component to extend your Joomla user accounting. The commercial version is well worth the extra money considering all the extra features it enables...

Good lite version

Posted on 15 July 2010

Great to have this type of tasks automated!

There is two versions free "Lite" and commercial "Standard".

So features like advertised here "Do you have users who have activated their account but never logged in?" and that you want to delete etc only work with standard version that is commercial.

There is many more functions you could add to this extension so hopefully there will be more improvements in future.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your feedback. I have altered the description of this component listing to hopefully make it clearer as to what is in the Lite Version (FREE) and the Standard Version (Commercial) ... apologies for any confusion.

Additionally, if you have any suggestions of functions to add to this component then please email me.

One new feature currently being worked on is the ability to send reminder emails to users who have not logged in for a period of (in an attempt to encourage them back to your website)

Great Extension!

This is a great extension, very helpful. It helps manage my users by deleting all the inactive ones.

the only improvement I can suggest is in the subject line of one of the emails there is a spelling mistake, but it's very easy to correct that, so great job!

Owner's reply: Thanks for the feedback. The typo has been fixed in the latest version.

Great Component

Registration Reminder is a fantastic component, that performs exactly as described. I have used this on a association website with ~1000 registered users, many of whom have never logged in. We had a 25% response rate from a single email!

Dwayne (the developer) was amazingly prompt and helpful in his replies, even when I asked some obvious questions!

I would highly recommend this component if you have a user base that is apathetic in using your website.
