Ever wanted to be able to sign people up to your blog from the URL? No? Well let me convince you…
I have been working with a few people that sell their wares on third party sites and services. These services usually come with some sort of email notification when someone coughs up for your product and then you have to spend that time faffing adding users to your WordPress site manually. Using this plugin, assuming they have a pseudo API, you don’t need to! In effect you can do the following
In fact the minimum you can send would be
Yes it’s that simple. It will generate a random username, password and set the default role and send out the welcome email as normal. You can suppress the welcome email centrally or suppress it on a per call basis. If you don’t want just any random person (or bot) signing up then use the API key functionality and then no request will be actioned unless another argument is added to the URL.
The URL Keys are configurable so you can bin the sb_rs_ prefix if you like (only for the userfields, the action and supplementary fields must remain, for now).
Take a look and let me know what you think. I am going to be using this in many of my applications from now on and would love to hear what people think of it!
