The purpose of this mod is to get users registered as quickly as possible. Users just enter a username, a valid email address, check a box agreeing to the rules (optional), and hit register, and they are sent an email with a randomly generated password.

The fact they get the password by email confirms entered a valid email address (if they ever log in, you know it is legit.)

Full Feature List
  • Displays on top of Forum Home (forum.php)
  • Ability to customize script name to reduce chances of Spam

  • Choose default usergroup for new registrations
  • Register button not active until valid looking username/email entered into form
  • Apply specific referrer to all users who register via this mod (good for tracking purposes)
  • Compatible with my Rename Regiter.php Mod
  • In unlikely event of error on registration user returned to regular registration script.
  • Option to hide rules completely
  • Option to show RFR Form to Admins at all times
  • Option to put RFR Form on any/all templates manually (RFR Anywhere)
  • Option to show JavaScript confirmation that explains why a valid email is needed and gives user option to update their email address.
  • Compatible with VB 3.8.x
  • Support for Human Verification
  • Added option allowing user to hide the form for a set number of days
  • NEW - Added option to enable the register_addmember_complete hook to increase compatibility with other registration mods
  • NEW - (In Beta) - Added option to use RFR form in "IFRAME" mode for non-VB pages.


I've used this mod for a month or so on my site, I have not had any spammers use it, probably too new for them to take notice.

The mod uses its own email phrases for new registrations so be sure to customize it if you want to.

Some important phrases...

Email Body Text Phrases
bop5rfr_newuser - Email sent to email addresses set to be notified of new users
bop5rfr_welcome - Email sent to new users (contains their password and other info)

Error Message Phrases
bop5rfr_reg_complete - Message shown upon completed Registration
bop5rfr_error_missing_values - Message shown if missing values (only possible if javascript disabled)

Front-End Redirect Messages
bop5rfr_problemredirect - Message shown if error and being redirected to full registration form (unlikely to happen)

GLOBAL Phrases
bop5_rfr_agree_to_rules - Agree to rules text
bop5_rfr_really_fast_reg_join_now - Text in title
bop5rfr_timezone_detect - [Timezone Detetion]
bop5rfr_confirm1 & bop5rfr_confirm2 - JavaScript Confirmation before submitting form



The "External Content" is an option to load the time zone detect javascript remotely, you can load it locally if you prefer.

This mod is compatible with vBulletin 3.8.x and vBulletin 4.x.x

What about spam registration?

BirdOPrey5 05 Sep 2013 21:39

Spam was discussed heavily in this thread - http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...hreadid=301283

I do not believe there will be any spam registrations. I've used it for almost 2 months now with no spammers. Spam software would need to be designed to work with this and I don't think it ever will be because it's not a popular mod.

The mod has the option to rename the script file so if you use a unqiue php file name it would make the chance of a spam script using it even less.

However if you do got spam, then disable it- this mod is for people who value new members even if it means some spammers.

Thanks BirdOPrey5 for explanation but is there any chance to add a haphazard question/answer box for example to the mod to minimize spam registration even further?

BirdOPrey5 05 Sep 2013 22:07

That's not likely to happen until and unless I see it actually being used by spammers. The point of the mod is to register as fast as possible.

Very nice Joe!
Please consider to add this to the reply box, so that guests can post and register at the same time.

Does this addon check for banned email addresses or email addresses already in use?
Please check for location so that the location field is automatically filled in.

BirdOPrey5 07 Sep 2013 17:46

It's not checking for banned emails, I will add that in a future version.

email not sent

BirdOPrey5 08 Sep 2013 21:18

Check your email settings in Admin CP, are any registration emails going out?

6piston 01 Oct 2013 12:12

hi BOP,

I have the same problem,

My experience:
- Input username = checks for duplicate works, green tick and box
- Input email
- click register now = no pop up box, (popup selected to yes)
- no email response
- user not registered

I've checked if there are emails sent out and there are (contact us form)

any clues?

6piston 01 Oct 2013 13:22

sorry bop, i take back my reply, the plugin works!
it's my bad. I had the files uploaded wrongly

6piston 01 Oct 2013 13:39

Though i have problem BOP,

I found the Registration email was sent to spam folder.
I tested a new registration through the vbulletin factory registration and it wasn't sent to spam.

Any way i can change the phrases to prevent the email being sent to spam?

BirdOPrey5 01 Oct 2013 20:52

You are welcome to change the phrases-

Email Body Text Phrases
bop5rfr_newuser - Email sent to email addresses set to be notified of new users
bop5rfr_welcome - Email sent to new users (contains their password and other info)

There are only minor changes (in my opinion) between the default templates and mine, but you're welcome to edit them as needed. I have not seem the emails go to spam in gmail or my outlook based account. Obviously all spam filters are setup differently, hard to predict why one mail would go to spam and another wouldn't.

BirdOPrey5 20 Nov 2013 13:21

Updated to version 2.0!

At long last, full support for all vBulletin Human Verification options. The HV Challenge pops up after pressing the Register Now button so it doesn't waste space on the page.

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/attac...2&d=1384957183

Also fixed some hard coded phrases and fixed bug where it would prevent chatboxes and other mods that shared same template hook from working.

Remember, also compatible with VB 4.x.x!

If you like the update please nominate it MOTM. We were so close last time!
