Enable self registration and change homefolder
Using python to setup self registration and member type creation, using a normal setuphandlers.py.
I needed to change the member-homefolder from the default Members to my own member folder called 'mymembers' and change the type of the created member object to my own membrane contenttype.
def setupVarious(context): mp = getToolByName(getSite(), "portal_membership") # set type to custom member type mp.setMemberAreaType('mypackage.contenttypes.member') # set member folder name mp.setMembersFolderById('mymembers') # call update security set_up_security(context)
Enabling the security settings can be done in the control panel or with some code:
def set_up_security(context): """ Enable/disable security controlpanel (a.k.a. @@security-controlpanel) settings. """ site = context.getSite() #site security setup! secSchema = ISecuritySchema(site) secSchema.set_enable_self_reg(True) secSchema.set_enable_user_pwd_choice(True) secSchema.set_enable_user_folders(True)
Now we have a website with self registration enabled. When people register, an object of type mypackage.contenttypes.member will be created in mymembers
