Social Sign-Up + Customization of Fields

The update is available on all servers



We've all been waiting for this day, and today we can proudly say "The day has come!". After several months of development and testing, registration with social networks becomes available for all websites created with uCoz!
Here is how it may look on a website:



Important:
  • social sign-up is only available if the uID authorization method is enabled on a website;
  • registration on a website is now available at yoursite.ucoz.com/register;
  • the registration form remembers the entered data when you close or refresh the browser tab;
  • social comments have been replaced with the social sign-up, and users who log in with their social accounts to comment are automatically signed up.


- Will social sign-in be available for local users?
- Yes, but at this moment we are unable to tell how soon.


Let's see how it works and where it can be customized.

Customization of fields: 2 sign-up steps!


No more multiple fields in the registration form. The new registration feature is simple, and site administrators can choose themselves what fields and on which step will be filled in by users. All these settings can be found in Control Panel -> Users -> Module settings:



- Will custom fields be available in the registration form?
- Yes, we are already working on it.

In addition to fields customization you can fully manage the layout of the uID registration form. The "uID users registration form" template is responsible for it:



Social network settings. Custom apps.


If you want to deactivate certain social networks or connect your custom applications to track registration statistics and use custom app icons, you can do this in the Users module:



Here you can choose the necessary apps or create custom ones, set App ID and Secret Key.

Login form: customization of elements.


There are new options in the Users module settings:



Connecting profiles on a website.


You have a uID account on a uCoz website, and you want to connect your social accounts to it? Open your profile and click on the icon of the social networking site you want to connect:



For this feature to appear on user profiles, site administrators must restore the default template in Design Customization, or paste the following code into the template:

Code
<script type="text/javascript">
function uSocialConnect(obj){
       var social = obj.id.split('-')[1];
       obj = $(obj);
       if(obj.hasClass('is-connected')){
       if(confirm('Do you really want to disconnect the account??')){
       obj.addClass('wait');
       _uPostForm('',{type:'POST',url:'/index/sub/', data:{a:4,s:social}});
       }
       }else if(!obj.hasClass('wait')){
       uSocialLogin(social);
       }
       return false;
}
</script>
<style type="text/css">.social-accounts { padding:10px 0 3px }
       .social-accounts .is-connected { opacity:.2!important }
       .social-accounts .wait i { background:url(/.s/img/icon/ajsml.gif) no-repeat center center!important }
</style>
<?if($_IS_OWN_PROFILE$ && $SOCIAL_LOGIN$)?></p>

<div class="udtb" id="block17">
<div class="udtlb">Social accounts:</div>

<div class="social-accounts">$SOCIAL_ACCOUNTS$</div>
</div>
<?endif?>


That's it for today! But it doesn't mean we've stopped working on the social sign-up. We have a lot of interesting in store: new social networks, custom fields in the uID registration form and more. Follow the news!

Have any questions or suggestions on the new sign-up? Feel free to post them below!

Animorph, if your e-mail address used for uID registration is the same like the e-mail used to Facebook registration, the system logs in you automatically via uID. If repeated e-mail addresses are blocked, you can not log in while uID e-mail address = Facebook e-mail address.
