TITAN CMS - Registration Block

The Registration block allows a user to sign up on your website.  You can gather information by determining which fields will display and if the field is required or optional.   Use Tags so a user can set their content preference.

Steps
  1. Click the dropdown for Add New Block.
  2. Select the Registration block, the Registration editor will display.
  3. Configure your Registration block:
    1. Set the Registration/Profile Form Display items:
      1. Login or Email  - This option is configured in Account Configuration in the Titan Administration module.  Email will display if "Login is always email address" is checked.
      2. Create Password will default to selected.

    3. Click a Tag name if you will be allowing User Preferences.  Tags & Attributes created in Titan Admin are assigned to content.  Using similar list of Tags & Attributes users will be able to select their preference at registration.  The tags and preferences work with a Filter block which creates a list of content based on a user's preference.
    4. Click Use.  A list of attributes will display.  Tags & Attributes are added in the Titan Administration module. 
    5. Click the drop down and select a different group if the group to use wasn't the default.
  4. Click OK to retain, or Cancel.
  5. Click Save or Publish from the Page Action Bar to retain changes.

*The Registration Block uses the Country dropdown to know the phone format to validate.

*For a non-U.S. formatted phone number, it appears to accept any number of digits, using dot, dash or a space to separate. Very loose.

*For a U.S. formatted phone number though it is pretty strict. It has to have the parenthesis around a three digit area code, followed by a space, dash or dot. Then exactly 3 digits, followed [again] by a space, dash or dot and finally exactly 4 digits. This is the same as the predefined validation used in the Forms Editor block.

*Custom phone number validation is possible, however, it requires XSL and javascript changes.  Email or call for a quote.

To require Hint questions on the Registration form, check in the Account Configuration found in the Titan Administration module.
