Registration plugin for DJ-Classifieds

Registration plugin for DJ-Classifieds

With registration plugin for DJ-Classifieds, you can overwrite regular Joomla registration and allow users to fill fields that will be then visible in their DJ-Classifieds profile.

This plugin comes free with the subscription of the extension.
You'll find it installed (you may need to enable it manually) after extension's installation. Alternatively, it's available in the downloads section (available for active subscribers).

The DJ-Classifieds registration solution comes with 2 plugins:

  • plg_djcflassifieds_registration.zip - main registration plugin
  • plg_djcflassifieds_acymailing.zip - allows adding user to AcyMailing during registration (This plugin works ONLY when AcyMailing component is installed and in use)

Active subscribers can download the package with the plugin from here. The AcyMailing integration can download here.

I assume that you already have a running website with DJ-Extensions component and database of ads. If not, then first read the documentation and tutorials:

and tutorials about profile options:

I’ll show you step by step how to set DJ-Classifieds registration plugin.

Plugins installation

Go to Extensions->Manage-> Choose file “plg_djcflassifieds_registration.zip” and click Upload & Install.



You should see the message:


Do the same with  “plg_djcflassifieds_acymailing.zip” file.

Go to Extensions-> Plugins and make sure, those installed plugins are enabled. If some of them are disabled, enable it.


 

Let's go

Now let's move on to the merits. Our registration form looks like that:


and we want it to look like this:


You can see, there is a new field in the registration form- “eye colour.
And the view of custom profile:


Here we have a new field, too. I want to add a new field in Profile and allow the user to fill this field during the registration process.

Go to Components-> DJ-Classifieds-> Fields and click New


Set fields as follow:


Type label, Use in-> Custom fields in Profile, Choose Type of fields and type Values, Select Required-> Yes, In registration-> Yes. Click Save and Close
Well done. Our registration form has increased by one item.



Now let's register a new user.

As you can see, the plugin displayed a new registration look with profile field visible:


I don’t fill in the required field, so when clicked Save a message asking for the fill in missing information was displayed.



OK, now profile have all required information. The profile looks like that:


 

Acymailing support

In the registration form, you can see a new field available: Sign up for our newsletter. This is due to “plg_djcflassifieds_acymailing.zip”. Now anyone can opt into the newsletter during registering.
