custom text disclaimer on user registration form

Author That's Me
#1 | Posted: 29 Jun 2006 04:53 
I want to insert some text onto the user sign up form. It's some text about our sign up policy and how users have to be activated manually (to help avoid confusion later when the newly "registered" user finds they are still unable to use the forums).

The problem is when I stick this text into the user_dataform.html template, it also appears on the user profile form (from preferences link).

I know it is possible to have the text only appear on the user registration form, but I have no idea how. The $l_fillRegisterForm variable achieves this, but I haven't been able to track down all it's references to figure out how.

Anyone understand what I'm getting at, please post a solution. Thanks a lot!

Try to paste this code in bb_plugins.php:

if($action=='registernew') $l_disclaimer='Your text here';

then paste {$l_disclaimer} into user_dataform.html template.

You can also try "Disclaimer" solution - it will display disclaimer text BEFORE registration form.
