Developer Last Online: Feb 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

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

I'm going to think about the password issue, I fully support no passwords in emails when it comes to things like banks or corporate email systems, but web discussion forums barely need passwords to be honest- unless someone is a mod or admin I personally wouldn't lose sleep over a password sent by email.

Would it be possible to make the make the registration box hower in a fixed position on top of the page so that it has a fixed position on the screen if if the users scrolls. I think that might give a much higher registration rate as the quick registration would be right there whenever someone reads something they want to reply to. (especially so when viewing a thread.)

Thanks BOP, I am going to try it with the regular registration off. Since the reg box will show up on every page in my setup, a registration link or button seems redundant.


I have styled using the stylevars, the registration box to something more suitable to my dark theme. (you can see it in my profile here)

But I noticed the username box is white when on a page, but it goes black when one starts to type in it. Of course the text font stays black, but you cant read it then.

I looked in the xml and stylevars bat cant find where to fix that.

And I am sorry for so many questions...

But, I am wondering if when the user account is created, if the account settings will follow the admin acp default registration options that are preset?

Great little mod. If you're taking feature requests, I have an idea. Feel free to ignore.

What if this appeared at the bottom of a thread or article under the reply box? That way, people who wanted to reply to a thread could enter their reply and register quickly at the same time. Presumably the reply would have to remain in the mod queue or something until the person logged in again.

I think that would increase registration and thread participation.

That should be possible now with CSS... Making the main DIV and absolute position on the page. I'm not a CSS expert but it should all be doable via additional.css.

Does it work right in your regular registration form? You may need to look in register.css for the code that controls the box after typing has begun.

Yes it should.

I like the idea of showing it to people who try to reply, but holding a reply until they register would be a pretty major change- wouldn't hod my breath for that but maybe one day.

Just wanted to say that I have been giving this a nice battery of tests, and I quite like it!

Still monitoring the spam thing, but so far none have used it.

Still havent figured out the username box background change on entry, checked out register.css, but all that has is a few short snippets for the check/x image and popup backgrounds. Nothing in there for the entry field box.
(edit to add: should I add a css entry for setting the background?)
(edit again again: yes, it works properly in the regular registration form. Just tested.)

But I do like how this works and just use a usergroup with limited priv for the new member group.

(edit also to add: I implemented the additional css to hide the time area. Like that and for me it prevents user confusion when it shows just some city, and in the end their time zone is set properly anyway, so they dont notice it missing)

And finally for now, edit to add:

I think I figured out how the background changes in the username input box....

register.css

The icon is overwriting the backgrouncd css for the input box. And the transparency of the icon png bleeds into the background.

Let me check my regular registration page to see if that has been happening. Bet it has been happening too, kinda think I didnt test it like I thought.

This would also be my preference.

Just want to add, seems to be working great. (and if the spammers sniff out the reg filename, I will just change it to something different).

On a note, I have pulled up the padding from the bottom of the box, is there a stylavar setting to tighten up the padding between the title and content bar?

(btw,..voted motm).

Not sure what you mean by content bar... The two padding stylevars are main (around the entire box) and title (around he box that holds the title of the form).

Anything else would need to be done by additional.css using the appropriate class name, you can find in the template or viewing the source code of the page.

I'm working on a confirmation screen for after you hit register. It will be an option in a future version, but for now its enabled in the demo on qapla.com while I work on it.

I may be away for a few days, will release an update after I get back.
