The account content elements generate fields and content in the frontend, which are mainly available to registered users. Users can use these content elements to view, edit and customize their account or first create an account.

The General tab corresponds to the content element Header Only. The decisive tab when configuring the Account Plug-Ins is the Plug-In tab.

Account Overview

The account overview offers a user a complete overview of his data. A distinction is made between login data and personal information. In order for the plug-in to work, two additional pages must be created that contain the corresponding information.

Tab Plugin

Welcome Message

Insert a text for your users. This will appear above the account information.

"Edit Personal Information"-Page & "Edit Login Information"-Page

The selected page should contain the Plugin Edit Account (only personal fields or only login fields). To do this, create two sub-pages in the page tree below the Account Overview: One page should be created with the Edit Account (Only Personal Fields) and the other with the Edit Account (Only Login Fields).

Prevent confirmation forwarding

When this option is enabled, the confirmation code from confirmation emails is only used to confirm users. This is useful if you have multiple Account plugins on the same page.

Edit Account

The plugin Edit Account allows users to adjust their information. For this purpose, a general plugin or the plugins for personal information and for login information are available. Configuring the elements is very easy. Then, after logging in, users can customize their information.

Tab Plugin

View Type

Whether you choose Edit Account when adding the plugin or use one of the other two versions (see screenshot) is basically irrelevant. In the Plugin tab, you can adjust the setting at any time. There are three options available:

  • All Fields
  • Personal Fields
  • Login Fields

For the account overview to work, you must create a separate page for personal information and login information. It is best to create the pages for editing the account as subpages of the account overview.

Reset Password

Everybody is familiar with it and therefore understands why this content element is so important: A password is quickly forgotten, which is why you have to reset it. This account element is also easy to configure, because you hardly have to adjust any settings. As a result, you get a form in the frontend to enter the email address of the account.

When the content element is created and saved, it is ready for use in the frontend.

In the Plugin tab, which generally contains important setting options for plugins, you do not have to change anything for the content element to work properly.

Login

Anyone who creates a user account on a website wants to log in again later. With just a few clicks you can provide your frontend users with a login form. In the frontend, only the e-mail address and password need to be entered to access the user area.

Tab Plugin

As with all plugins, all important settings are adjusted in the Plugin tab of the login form. This tab has three additional subtabs. In order for the user data to be recognized and for the system to know who is logging in and out, for all three subtabs (Login, Logout and Other) the page or folder containing the list of frontend users must be added to the record collection.

To add a page or folder, click the Page button below the field or the folder icon to the right of the field. In the page tree that appears, simply click on the folder that contains the frontend users. The folder is immediately in the field Selected Items. To remove a selected item, click on it in the list in the field. The object is now highlighted. Now click on the recycler icon to the right of the field. The selection is now deleted.

Register

The Register plugin allows you to easily create the element that allows users to set up a user account. With the account, users can, for example, view access-restricted content or use the shop. Create a separate page for the plugin in the page tree. The account data is stored in the system and can be customized.

Tab Plugin

You can point to the registration page, for example, on the account login page and include a link to it.

Select page to redirect users to after the registration

After registration, you could, for example, redirect your user to a page indicating that the new account should first be confirmed.

Redirect Priority

There are various ways to determine where a user shall be redirected to. This setting overrides the default prioritization.

Record Storage Page

Insert a record collection here if required.

Email Confirmation

As the only account-related plugin, you will find the email confirmation not in the group of account content elements. In order to add it, a General Plugin must be created first. The content element allows you to register and confirm an account using the double opt-in procedure.

Tab Plugin

Create a page for email confirmation and disable it in the menus in the page properties. When you add and save the plugin, the page is ready for use.
