In addition to that, the extension is compatible with social tools. If a wiki's admins choose to give out 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]
- Download and place the file(s) in a directory called NewSignupPage in your extensions/ folder.
- Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
- If you set
$wgRegisterTrack = true;, you need to create the
user_register_tracktable in your database; you can do this from command line with
php maintenance/sql.php extensions/NewSignupPage/user_register_track.sql
- Done! Navigate to "Special:Version" on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
§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.
§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
$wgRegisterTrack— whether to track registrations into the
user_register_trackDB table. Defaults to
$wgForceNewSignupPageInitialization— initialize the extension, even if InviteEmail or UserRelationship classes do not exist? Useful for testing.
