vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (15 votes - 4.73 average) Installs: 88
Released: 17 Aug 2013 Last Update: 18 Dec 2013 Downloads: 518
Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files External Content  

Brought to you by BirdOPrey5 / Qapla.com

Live Demo: http://www.totallycommercials.com/

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 they 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
  • Uses built in VB javascript to verify valid username in real time
  • Uses 3rd party javascript to detect user's timezone and set it during registration
  • Fully Phrased for easy customization or translation
  • Full use of Stylevars to control colors/layout options
  • Agree to Forum Rules checked by default option
  • Show randomly generated password after registration option (this could lead to users with invalid emails however, not recommended)
  • Random passwords generated vary in length
  • 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

It certainly doesn't work with the 2nd one and never will because the whole point is to register in a single click, so there is nothing to time.

I can assure you no one is using it to spam at this time. It has a built in option to customize the script name to help prevent future spam attempts.

Current spam software was never designed to recieve passwords by email and simply are incompatible with this script. I suspect it will be a long time, if ever, before this mod gets popular enough to warrant rewriting spam bot software.

As for the first mod I'm really not sure, it probably wouldn't block registrations but should catch spam if posted i a thread.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but it's showing up on forum_home even after I've signed in. What am I missing?

I forgot I hard coded it to always show to userid 1 when testing it. Will fix that in this weekends update.

I didn't want to forget it was installed and out-of-sight = out of mind.

Ha, that's funny Joe, but it may be a good idea to show it to admins via a option, so if you are tweaking it, you don't have to use two different browsers, you can see any changes you make without being logged out.

Updated to Version 1.3.0

Added option to completely hide the rules- if you don't care about them no one has to see them. It will just be Username, Email, and Register button.

Added option to always show RFR Form to Admins. This way you can style the form without having to log in as a guest to see changes. Also it will remind you the mod is installed and working.

Finally added an option- RFR Anywhere - With this enabled you manually put a piece of code in just about any template you want (header, navbar, footer all OK) and you can show the Really Fast Registration form on ALL or any pages you want.

The code to use in any template is: {vb:raw template_hook.bop5_rfr_form}

I've tested it at the bottom of the header template, bottom of the navbar template, and in the footer template right after-

This is great, however I believe that you and others have said, it will be taken advantage of quite quickly. Being somebody who has the tools and know-how to create 'bots' particularly in .NET, the lack of process and shear simplicity of the registration is kind of 'back tracking' for those of us who have taken leaps and bounds to exterminate the annoyance of spam and junk sign-ups.

I would recommend the following 2 upgrades to this thingy (modification tagged, but not comfortable with installing yet)

1 - Ability to retain the email confirmation link sent out during a default registration, rather than sending a password via email. Generally speaking, it is always best to never send a password via email, as that data should never be stored or available anywhere but the website's database. This is why password reset links and such are used more often than simply sending the password upon request.

2 - Somehow retain hooks used in the default registration process, so that we can continue to use our spam prevention mods from here on vb. For example the captcha, secret question, and other spam prevention MODS available here on VB utilized during the registration process.

But to each his own, I personally wouldn't feel comfortable installing this mod, it is simply moving backwards when it comes to dealing with spam.

I appreciate your advice addamroy, here is my take on this...

Yes there are some Admins here who fight spam like it is their divine mission to never get spam, and good for them, more power to them.

For me personally however deleting a spam thread here or there does not ruin my day. On my off topic forum especially we have several moderators so someone is almost always online and spam never lasts more than a few minutes. A couple of clicks and it is gone.

It is far more valuable to me to have one or two extra people register even if that means one or two extra spammers register as well.

This mod is for the Admins who put new members OVER spam protection.

Next, as part of a comprehensive strategy there are quite a few options this mod allows for that I didn't mention but could be done by combining the fact this mod can register people to a custom group, and the promotions system.

For passwords in-particular you could register users to a new "RFR Group" rather than Registered Users. The RFR Group would have the same permissions as Registered Users but you can set the max password age to something like 1 or 2 days. This would force most users to change their password to something that wouldn't be in their email. The promotions system can be used to promote users after x days or x posts to registered users group.

I also will likely be releasing an add-on in the future that will delete users who registered via RFR but then never returned... If they haven't posted after X days it is a good bet they aren't coming back or didn't use a legit email to begin with.

If spamming becomes an issue I will certainly look into doing more throwing in a captcha or a random question, but I don't think we're there yet and unless this mod because uber popular, it might not ever be a bridge that needs to be crossed.

What are the chances of having the emailed password be an option? So we can stick to the confirmed emails route.

This does look like a great mod, but at the very least I have always believed in never emailing a password if the option is there, ie during registration and/or forgot password processes.

The system wont let me like your post right now, so I will thank you here.

Question,... If you turn off registrations in ACP, will this mod turn off also?
(thinking it shouldnt, but would want to disable the registration function that is standard and just test using this solo)
(maybe that should be an option in settings? keep on or turn off by admin oem registration on/off)

Also wanted to ask,... is there a way to show the time zone and not a particular area?

I have noticed that it is off several hundred miles in the city when I test, even if in the correct time zone. It just looks funny I guess.

(or Can you suggest a way to change that? or do you think it is accurate enough to just hide it in templates, while it still sets on reg?)

If passwords aren't emailed then you want users to have to enter a password on the form? That s one of the major things I am trying to avoid. Unless you had some other idea I'm not thinking of?

In my testing it still works with registration turned off.

The timezone is not supposed to pick the city closest to you, there are standardized timezone names in PHP/JavaScript and they are based off the largest city in the timezone even if that city is thousands of miles away. Even if you're in Florida the official timezone name is America / New York.

I really do not like messing with javascript so I used a library already written, I do not know how to go about editing it and wouldn't suggest you try.

If you want you can hide the timezone completely, hiding it shouldn't hurt anything.

I hadn't really thought it out that far to be honest, lol. I've just always had a thing with passwords never being anywhere except locked up in a database. (If anybody were to hack one of our email accounts, they would never find any passwords to other services) Just my opinion that passwords shouldn't be transmitted anywhere except from an input field then to a database.

Maybe your mod can add a second phase to the registration.

Possibly after entering their username and email address, they would be directed to a single page where they would then enter their new desired password, at which time I think it would be great that once the password is submitted, the user then be sent a confirmation link via email just like the standard vb registration.

Honestly I'm digging the simplicity of registration and visual design of this mod, I'm sure it would jump sign up conversions, but I feel it's a little 'too' simple, a lot less secure.

If you decide to work out a solution to the password, retaining email confirmation for members, installation would be strongly considered for me. And of coarse, the ability to add a 'secret question' to the registration form (this one modification has had the most effective results for me and spam prevention), this would make it a no brainer for me.
