× Creating OpenSim accounts during Joomla! registration

Avatar selection for existing Joomla! users

9 years 3 months ago #1693 by tricon
I created a new menu for users ( Create Inworld Account ) but it only has fields for first / last name and password.

Is it possible for users that have already have existing Joomla! accounts to still have the avatar selection options available to them when they create an OpenSim account (via the menu option)?

Thanks!

Hi tricon

The avatar selection is currently "only" part of the plugin jOpenSimRegister, which is just for new users.

I have it on my todo-list to add this feature also for the component itself :) But I'm sorry it will not be part of jOpenSim 0.2.6 which will be released (hopefully) quite soon.

Okay, thanks for the reply. I will set the avatar creation on the initial registration to required so that no one ends up as the Ruth avatar.

It is probably more of an OpenSim question but is there a way to set the default/starting Ruth avatar to something else for users that do not select an avatar at registration? It would be great if the default avatar for all users could be from the selectable avatar list.

I have been running into situations where users are changing their passwords through the Joomla! interface and expecting their OpenSim password to be updated at the same time. This also happens when users forget and need to reset their passwords through email. What would be the best way to keep the passwords in sync with each other? I would like to simplify things as much as possible for users.

I was also wondering if for users that already have existing Joomla! accounts and would like to create new OpenSim accounts, would it be possible to use their existing Joomla! passwords. Is there a specific php file that I could edit to make this possible?

Thanks!

Hi tricon

Changing the OpenSim password simultaneously when Joomla password is changed is definately possible and I should consider adding this in one of the next versions of the plugin jOpenSimRegister.

Storing an already existing Joomla password for OpenSim is unfortunately not that easy if not even impossible since Joomla and OpenSim have a completely different way of encrypting the passwords.

Oh that makes sense since the encryption is handled so differently. Having the passwords change simultaneously would be a great addition to the plugin. Then I suppose the best practice would be to have existing users that create a new OpenSim account just change their Joomla! passwords to get them in sync (assuming they didn't use the same password for both).
