How to display Registration Form?
« on: January 13, 2012, 21:06:58 pm »
This is probably simple, but I cannot figure it out. I'm new to VM, using VM 2.0.0 and J1.7. I have figured out how to display "Account Maintenance" as a menu item. But, I cannot figure out how to display the "Registration Form". There is no option to display it as a menu item. Can someone please explain the steps to showing the Registration form?

Thanks,
-Andy

not anymore the famous: "Info: You are not a Registered Customer yet. Please provide your Billing Information."????

Thanks, that's great to hear. Now, how did you know that? Is there some VM2 documentation somewhere?

It has been mentioned several times in this forum. It is a good idea to read one or more threads before asking a question. Chances are it is already solved.

just open the accountmaintance as anonymous user, fill out the form press save (register?) and it is like registering. There are some minor gui issues. The fields you need for the registration are configurable. But for your customers the registration during the checkout process is more interesting :-)

You can also just use the joomla login/register, but then they are missing the addresses, but it works.

A bit more information about this here  http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=96356.0

VM2 registered users are also shown in Joomla and vice versa! But there is a problem. Not all the profile information are "copied" (address, phone number, city etc) but only the name, username an email (and password of course). So if someone register through Joomla's form an logins, his personal information will not be displayed in VM account/shipping/receipt information and he will have to reenter it.
Is there any solution on this, like synchronize the additional information too?

you mix the joomla users with their contact (com_contact).

Due j1.5 and j1.7 and other reasons, we decided not to use com_contact. Use Community Builder instead. There is a coorperation with them

That is exactly how it was in VM1.0 and 1.1 as well.

Ok, you will have to excuse me once more but I am very new with Joomla and VM so I will have to ask for some more information (a little more detailed) on how to do that! I have the feeling that I am very close to that... I found the new accounts, even those that I had deleted (!!?) at the contacts page... And after that, what? How will VM "read" and use the information? I mean, without the administrator copy them, but automatically...

the com_contact is NOT the joomla user information....

you create their contacts, which can be connected to a joomla user. It is meant for a contact page, not more. When you register to joomla, you cant enter this information. It must be administrated and is not what you need. When you want community stuff, you should try something like Community Builder.

Community Builder will substitute the default Joomla login/register methods. But will it synchronize the profile fields with the Virtuemart 2 ones, so the user will automatically become a shopper with all the user information copied? Also will CB work with jNews, an application for newsletter subscription that automatically takes the new users?
I thought of a hack but I don't know if how can be done or how "easy" it is... Somewhere in VM2 there is a code that "grabs" the basic info of a user (username, email, password) and creates the shopper. If, somehow, we told it to grab some other certain fields? Just a thought...

The user registration form its very strange form me :(
To solve this situation we should insert a link to http://localhost/mp2/index.php?option=com_user&view=register   ???
And not to /index.php?option=com_virtuemart&view=user   ???

And if Users want to change their configuration They need so many input forms to change everything like Costumer ID, See their Shopper Group, etc.. why this is not hidden? :/

There exists this link, what do you think is used in the cart?
The normal behaviour of a shopper is not to register and to shop then. you can register while checkout, so why not using this?

And you can use this as register, we just forgot to add the xml for it, so that you can choose it in joomla. Hmm and an extra follower task, so what do you think about this index.php?option=com_virtuemart&view=user&task=edit as registration form? We go to add it that way then.

you may use as test an external link and http://youdomain/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&view=user&layout=editaddress

Correct me if I am wrong but what you say is to change the registration link mydomain/index.php/el/login?view=registration with the VM registration? What's the way to do that? And what about the profile edit links? They will have to change too...
