Changes to user registration process

04/01/2007

Hidden registration

One more New Year change is to the way users are entering the site for the first time.

As soon as they click on the link in the confirmation email they are taken straight to their catalogues and can start playing with the templates. It makes sense to show them what this is all about before asking all the registration questions.

Users are asked to provide a password with the first order. No order will be accepted without a password. No registrations screens even after that – the order is processed and the user is taken to the order details page.

Coming changes

There are 3 ways users can be registered:

– manually added to the list
– self-register where allowed
– self-register using their corporate email

There will be one more way – straight in, but only where it’s allowed by the printer owning the catalogue.
