Manual Install Instructions for SMF

Below are some preview images of what the mod looks like when being used


The purpose of the mod is to allow potential members the ability to join a pre-determined membergroup (or groups) based upon an additional registration password.

Registered users will then be part of the selected group/s instead of the "Regular Membergroup".


Member uses the additional password 1234 joins  membergroup ABCD upon successful registration

Member uses the additional password 5678 joins  membergroup EFGH upon successful registration etc.

An admin configurable "text box" permits instructions to be placed adjacent to the additional registration password box allowing for an explanation about what to enter.

It can be toggled that if no password is entered then the user can join as a "Regular Member", instruction can be placed in the "text box" to this effect.

You can find the setting in Admin -> Features and Options -> Basic Features tab.
