Feedback on RequireRegistrationPlugin

-- ByronIgoe - 27 Jul 2007

Thanks you very much Byron for sharing this useful plugin with the TWikiCommunity!

-- PeterThoeny - 28 Jul 2007

This is a very cool plugin. It wouldn't work with TWikiRelease04Sep2004, would it?

-- AlexanderStedile - 01 Aug 2007

This would be a very useful plugin. We set it up on a test machine running 4.1.2. As expected the registration form appeared when a non-registered user went to an authorized page. However after filling out the form and submitting the registration page appears again. Debug did not show anything significant. Why would the registration form be called a 2nd time?

-- PeterJones - 10 Aug 2007

We saw something similar. Internally, we require users to confirm their email address before registration is completed. I found that sometimes users have to restart their browser before the new registration will take effect.

If I get a chance, I will take a look at what the plug-in might be able to do.

Additionally, 4.1.2 configure complains because there is no installer script.

-- SteveRJones - 29 Aug 2007

We did a minor adaption of the plugin to only ask users to register when they try to edit a topic. When there is a check for the edit action, we also avoid the problem mentioned by PeterJones above.

Has anyone successfully used this plugin with TWiki v4.2? Even though we get to the registration page, the fields are locked and the message "Sorry, registration has been temporarily disabled," appears. We have all the proper settings in configuration, so we're wondering if anybody else faced the same issue.

-- ShivaGoudarzi - 11 Mar 2008

Hi all, Thanks to NilsHoeimyr . The modified plugin is working and the registration page is not called twice. I was wondering on how did the modification really work because it primarily checks for edit action. Where is it getting the messages to display for the user?? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks a lot.

-- SashankhDonkena - 13 Oct 2008

The problem here is that this plugin does its redirection too when the register page is called. Instead of checking that action=="edit", it would be cleaner to check that action!="register".

-- WillemEngen - 2012-08-16

Here's another patch (based on current version 1.3) that adds the configuration parameter Actions, which is a comma-separated list of actions that this plugin should work on. If not defined, it will work on all actions. Also configuration is moved from a configuration page to global configuration in LocalSite.cfg. Please feel free to make a new release out of it, after review. I consider myself too 'new' to do that.

-- WillemEngen - 2012-08-16

Thank you Willem! I created TWikibug:Item6915 to track this. I'll check this in and release it this time. I invite you to get involved with the TWiki community and request SVN access for extensions so that you can release new plugin versions yourself! More at ReadmeFirst.

-- PeterThoeny - 2012-08-17

Willem, I checked in your patch, added a Config.spec file, updated the plugin doc and released a new plugin version. Could you please download and test?
