Anonymous Registration


Register with just 3 clicks? Who of us has never dreamed of that. With Anonymous Registration this dream comes true allowing curious visitors to easily access your site without having to disclose any personal information.

Your frontpage will look like:

enter image description here


and the prospective member can decide whether to register as just a random 10-digit number or with an individual username. After having clicked Create Now a window with the login credentials pops up:

As you will note with the next step, Anonymous Registration indeed has created just another regular account:

and it's up to your new member to either delete the account right after registering, stay anonymous, or to personalize his data.

When using Anonymous Registration in conjunction with Member Avatars your member might even get a nice profile picture instantly.

Note:
1. This component cannot be enabled in parallel with Disable User Activation By Mail and vice versa. Either one of them has to be disabled first.
2. This component cannot be enabled in parallel with Display Username and vice versa. Either one of them has to be disabled first.
3. This component cannot be enabled in parallel with Mobile Login and vice versa. Either one of them has to be disabled first.
4. This component won't allow you to disable or remove its pre-requisites (ReCaptcha and GDPR) as long as it is enabled.

Ahhh, that never occurred to me, duh. I've disabled that and it's working fine now. Thanks.

Greg,
you were trying to run my component in conjunction with MobileLogin, right !? And this doesn't work since MobilLogin requires a phone number.
Now that it doesn't make much sense to offer an anonymous account on one hand, and force the new member to enter his phone number on the other hand, disabling MobileLogin is the only solution and will make AnonymousLogin work.

I'm sorry I wasn't aware of this incompatibility - I'll update the component description soon.

I've deleted the custom user fields component and I don't see anything that's not included in the base software package with the user fields and it's still not working.

Thanks Greg.
Looks, like your Custom Profile Fields has defined some required fields which an AnonymousRegistration can of course not satisfy. Please disable that component and try again.

@Greg
No idea what's going wrong. Please provide some more details (site url, etc.) See https://www.opensource-socialnetwork.org/wiki/view/1101/how-to-report-a-bug-error

I tried to create an account with this and nothing happens? Everything is enabled and I have the I'm not a Robot captcha in use, etc and it just sits there.

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

@~Z~ Man I see, some users are asking for normal accounts, i told them just change your username, so that would be sufficient enough i believe?

German ~Z~ Man Replied 2 months ago

You can't.
And actually I don't see no reason to have both options in place.
