Setting up a Registration Form

Description

You can configure Contact Enhanced to display a Registration Form, however please keep in mind that this is not the main purpose of Contact Enhanced, therefore the only Form Fields recorded on the User's database table are name, username, e-mail and password.

This is something a few users ask for, but we do not encourage/recommend using Contact Enhanced as a registration form. There are many registrations extensions available for Joomla at JED.

Usage

For Joomla 3 and newer:

  1. Go to Menus → [a menu type of your preference, Main Menu for instance];
  2. Click on the New button and choose Contact Enhanced → Create Contact Menu item type.
  3. Enable the User Registration option under the "Contact Display Options" tab and hide all information you don't want to display;

Keep in mind this option will also create a Contact in Contact Enhanced therefore you might need to read these documentation articles as well:
