this Component is very interessting it will be great to give them mantatory Fields (for example "Name", "Birthday" "gender" "Category" etc) that can be configered by the admin.
And the best will be, when user can decide on the Start page, if he wants to register regulary or anonymous.

@Georg that makes sense because its anonymous user.

German Georg yurij Replied 2 years ago

the option "show label (on signup form)" is not working on the anonymous registration form.

Every new registered user actually is "male" and has no Birthday.

Hi are there a option for the user can move betwen default registration and annonym registration ?

FYI: Because of many requests to free this component from its
pre-requisites GDPR and reCaptcha I have removed this
dependency with V 1.2 now - which results in a real

The drawback: Registering will become scriptable this way. So don't be
surprised to find hundreds of new accounts the next day. And that's
why I can only strongly recommend to install at least Captcha or
reCaptcha in parallel. But of course that's up to you.

Well, it looks nice and all, but I don't really see much usefulness since there is already a way to allow people to view your OSSN site without registering (i.e. don't install the "Private Network" component and just put a link to /home on the login page so unregistered users can access the site). What's the point of an "anonymous registered user" vs "anonymous non-registered user"? Just that the registered user gets a profile? I really don't see why an anonymous/curious user would possibly want a profile AS an anonymous user. If they like the site after browsing it, why not just have them register as a normal user?

A much better idea imo would be to give users the option to "anonymize" a particular post (to the newsfeed, to a group, as a comment, etc) by displaying a randomly generated ID instead of the user's name/picture. That is similar to how it's done at

Just my opinion - I know you and I don't particularly like each other, so take it for what it's worth, or don't.

As already said in the beginning:
A username cannot be changed in Ossn. You may change anything else, though, Firstname, Lastname ... whatever you want.
