Customers can, of course, register during the checkout process. However, they can also choose to register before. There are 4 different types of registration forms that can be used when a new user chooses to register on the site by clicking the 'create account' button. The default form is set on the fbx_settings.cfm template in the root directory. As an alternative to the standard registration process, several single page forms are provided to simplify the registration process, depending on the site's needs.
register - The standard sign-up process which takes the user from form to form as required: login form => customer form => shipto form (if used) => account form (if used)
newuser - Creates only a user login
member - Login and customer address on a single form.
account - Login, customer and account info on a single form.
If you choose to turn on email confirmations, you will also need to decide how you wish to protect the site until the user confirms their account. You can do this using a call to the secure.cfm tag; if the validation fails, the form to enter the confirmation code will be shown. By default, the User Manager page will be protected and you will find the code in the users\fbx_Switch.cfm page already set up with comments on how to adjust this.
