Configure the Registration widget

After you place the Registration widget on your page, do the following:

  1. To open the widget designer, click the Edit button in the upper-right corner of the widget.
  2. In the Registration dialog, configure the following:

    • Select a provider from the Providers dropdown menu.
      This is the provider where your users will be registered.
    • Under Roles, which the user will be assigned to…, choose whether the user is assigned to any roles and if yes, select the roles. For more information about roles, see Overview: Roles.
    • Under When the form is successfully submitted..., choose what to display to the user upon registration completion:
      • Show a message
        The message displayed when form is submitted is "Thank you! You are successfully registered."
      • Open a specially prepared page...
        From the tree, select the page to be opened when registration is complete. Click Done selecting.
    • Under Login page, select the page that opens when the user clicks the Back to Login link.

      NOTE: The page must have a Login form widget placed on it.

      2. Click the Select a page… button and select the page from the tree.
      3. Click Done selecting.

      • Select the Send an email for successful registration checkbox.
