The primary intent is enhanced useability for new and existing users - currently in use on this site.

  • uses jQuery validation to enhance registration, all browsers plus IE6
  • now requires double email entry to minimize error
  • initial registration requires username and email
    (checks against existing users using ajax plus PHP fallback)
  • then registration has a second step, also with validation to minimize data loss if errors
  • where js is disabled, DF error checking has been changed to minimize data loss
  • your account has a css tabbed menu, no js (previous block removed)
  • tabbed menu extended to private messagesi
  • private messages language integrated with YA (no longer forums lang)
  • tab for user activity - summary, blogs, gallery, posts, topics, watchlists
  • tab for user groups
  • password recovery modified to eliminate confusing code entry
    (relies on re-activation link only.)
  • provision for forgotten username, similar to lost password
  • admin option to allow viewing of user profiles on a groups basis
  • admin option to allow username change, requires email re-activation
  • admin option to auto add new user to a group
  • user email change now requires email re-activation
  • all fully templated.
  • theme based styling with account.css covering validation and jQuery curve
  • uses jQuery curve to round container corners, all browsers
  • for enhanced useability, the verdana font is provided for security codes
  • core database tables untouched but reactivation table and couple of main config flags added

Editor's Note:
Installation notes:
  • upload all directories and the two single files to root
  • also advisable to upload the theme files to your current theme(s)
  • upgrade the Your_Account module through admin modules to add table cms_users_pass and a couple of config flags
  • required jQuery scripts are added to your /includes/javascript/ directory
  • the verdana font is added to your /includes/fonts/ directory
