Title: Registration always self
Post by: mlyczko on September 08, 2014, 16:19:53 pm
Hello

When i register new user by VM registration i always get register self, not need activation link. I tried to set user registration to "Automatic" and "Administrator", but i always get registered self.
When i want to register by Joomla there is no problem - i get activation link and after click on it i have activated user.

Joomla 2.5.19
VM 2.0.26d

I assume that's normal for the VirtueMart registration. Otherwise shoppers can't order anything when  'Only registered users can checkout' is enabled in VM configuration until accepted by the adminstrator. In my old VM 2.0.26d shop I'm using the Joomla login module for registration only.

Hello

But in my configuration not registered users can also buy something.

Please explain better what you are trying to do?  Have the admin approve all registrations and therefore control access to the shop?

Hello

I'd like to users after registration get activation link on email and after click on it they could login and buy products.

Best regards

Guess you'll have to get them to register thru joomla then -
I assume it is policy descision not to use validation in VM (in my experience the validation email does send but the fact that it isn't "validated" is ignored by the checkout) as it is a customer killer...
They don't understand, it gets spammed, they can't find it etc etc

Do you really want people to "work" to get to the checkout? All theory says it should be made as simple as possible...
