Release status: stable
|Implementation||other (invalid type)|
|Description||Enhances MediaWiki's default signup page|
|License||GNU General Public License 2.0 or later|
|Example||Any ShoutWiki site|
Translate the NewSignupPage extension if possible
|Check usage and version matrix; code metrics|
In addition to that, the extension is compatible with social tools. If a wiki's admins choose out to give points for recruiting new users, set $wgRegisterTrack to true (and make sure that user_register_track table exists on that wiki's database beforehand!) and you're done.
Installation[edit | edit source]
- Dump the files into $IP/extensions/NewSignupPage
- Add require_once("$IP/extensions/NewSignupPage/NewSignupPage.php"); into the wiki's LocalSettings.php
- If you set $wgRegisterTrack = true;, you need to create the user_register_track table in your database; you can do this from command line with php maintenance/sql.php extensions/NewSignupPage/user_register_track.sql
- Installation can now be verified through Special:Version
User rights[edit | edit source]
This extension adds a new user right, bypasstoscheck, which by default isn't given to any group. Users with this right can create new accounts without checking the "I accept the site's Terms of Service" checkbox.
User points[edit | edit source]
- $wgUserStatsPointValues['referral_complete'] — set this to something to give out points for referring a new user successfully to the site.
Interface messages[edit | edit source]

|right-bypasstoscheck||Create new accounts without accepting the site's Terms of Service||Displayed in Special:ListGroupRights|
Parameters[edit | edit source]
- $wgAutoAddFriendOnInvite — if the new user was referred to the site by an existing user, should we make them friends automatically? Defaults to false.
- $wgRegisterTrack — whether to track registrations into the user_register_track DB table. Defaults to false.
- $wgForceNewSignupPageInitialization — initialize the extension, even if InviteEmail or UserRelationship classes do not exist? Useful for testing.
