The NewSignupPage extension enhances MediaWiki's default signup page, Special:UserLogin/signup, by requiring users to check a checkbox stating that they've read and understood the site's Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.

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.

Currently, the extension is configured to link to ShoutWiki's privacy policy and terms of use. To personalize it for your wiki, you need to edit MediaWiki:shoutwiki-loginform-tos and MediaWiki:shoutwiki-must-accept-tos.

Contents

InstallationEdit

  • 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:
    wfLoadExtension( 'NewSignupPage' );
    
  • If you set $wgRegisterTrack = true;, you need to create the user_register_track table 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 rightsEdit

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 pointsEdit

  • $wgUserStatsPointValues['referral_complete'] — set this to something to give out points for referring a new user successfully to the site.

Customizing checkbox messageEdit

This extension adds a new checkbox in Special:UserLogin/signup (right below the Remember my login on this computer checkbox). You can edit the text for this checkbox by editing the system message in MediaWiki:Shoutwiki-loginform-tos.

ParametersEdit

  • $wgAutoAddFriendOnInvite — if the new user was referred to the site by an existing user, should we make them friends automatically? Defaults to false.
  • $wgRegisterTrack — whether to track registrations into the user_register_track DB table. Defaults to false.
  • $wgForceNewSignupPageInitialization — initialize the extension, even if InviteEmail or UserRelationship classes do not exist? Useful for testing.
