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!

if I don't include the nickname on the sign up process, when will they pick one?


It will be taken from the e-mail (e.g. yourmail@mail.com -> the username will be "yourmail")

Animorph, and the website URL and your uID/Facebook e-mail are... ? And other users don't have this problem, right?

Animorph, I would suggest the following - try to disconnect Facebook from your uID account, and then connect it again. Apparently the problem is caused by the e-mail change.

Eriko, no, but they can send a feedback to you for changing the nickname. You can open a forum thread about this, for example.

Eriko, the same way as usual, usernames can be changed via Control Panel.

I think there's a bug on the social sign up. cry my friend with an account of http://kuru-anime.com/index/8-31 connected his gmail account to his profile. It works fine at first then we noticed that instead of connecting it, the system created another user (http://kuru-anime.com/index/8-118) using his gmail. :| now the problem is. how can I delete that account if I'm using uID?

Eriko, what are his uID emails for both profiles? What is the gmail email he connected? Did he have a uID account registered to his gmail email (not on your website, but in general?

It probably took some time for your e-mail to be updated.

Sunny, his old account was local. the system created a new uID account. Also, his first email was like this email@gmail.com . there's no dots, but his original e-mail was em.ail@gmail.com . I'm thinking that the system thought that he's registering a new account because it's a different e-mail. :|
