User E-Mail Settings
The settings selected in the preceding screenshot specify that visitors can create their
own accounts and they don't require administrator approval. For Doug's site, this is
the option I would recommend. If we had set the first option, then we would have to
create user accounts for customers who wanted their own username, which would
make it very difficult for customers to become users in our site. The final option
allows visitors to create accounts but requires an administrator approval on the
account. In an e-commerce situation this is certainly not recommended; if we have
a user ready to pay we would not want to tell them to wait until someone approves
their account.
Underneath those three options is a check box that states Require e-mail verification
when a visitor creates an account . This option will require that the user validates
their email address before they can log in for the very first time. With this option we
can reduce the number of fraudulent user accounts created, ensuring they are all tied
to a valid and active email address.
User E-Mail Settings
Emails are automatically sent when:
A user signs up
An administrator creates a username
A user signs up but their account needs an administrator approval
A user requests a change in password
The content of these emails can be changed from the User e-mail settings . There are
a number of variables used in these emails, including ones that become the users'
username, their password or the log-in page of the website. These variables are
described beneath each individual email, and are prefixed with an exclamation mark.
