Front-end user management for October CMS.

Requirements

  • October CMS 3.6 or above
  • The AJAX Framework to be included in your layout/page

Installation Instructions

Run the following to install this plugin:

php artisan plugin:install RainLab.User

To uninstall this plugin:

php artisan plugin:remove RainLab.User

Older Versions

If you are using October CMS v3.0 - v3.5, install v2.1 with the following commands:

composer require rainlab/user-plugin "^2.1"

If you are using October CMS v1.0 - v2.3, install v1.7 with the following commands:

composer require rainlab/user-plugin "^1.7"

Sample Theme

We recommend installing this plugin with the RainLab.Vanilla theme to demonstrate its functionality.

For extra functionality, consider also installing the RainLab.UserPlus plugin.

Managing Users

Users are managed on the Users tab found in the admin panel. Each user provides minimal data fields - First Name, Last Name, Email and Password. The Name can represent either the person's first name or their full name, making the Last Name field optional, depending on the complexity of your site.

Below the Email field is an checkbox to block all outgoing mail sent to the user. This is a useful feature for accounts with an email address that is bouncing mail or has reported spam. When checked, no mail will ever be sent to this address, except for the mail template used for resetting the password.

Plugin Settings

This plugin creates a Settings menu item, found by navigating to Settings > Users > User Settings. This page allows the setting of common features, described in more detail below.

Sign In

By default a User will sign in to the site using their email address as a unique identifier. You may use a unique login name instead by changing the Login Attribute value to Username. This will introduce a new field called Username for each user, allowing them to specify their own short name or alias for identification. Both the Email address and Username must be unique to the user.

As a security precaution, you may restrict users from having sessions across multiple devices at the same time. Enable the Prevent Concurrent Sessions setting to use this feature. When a user signs in to their account, it will automatically sign out the user for all other sessions.

Registration

Registration to the site is allowed by default. If you are running a closed site, or need to temporarily disable registration, you may disable this feature by switching Allow user registration to the OFF setting.

Notifications

When a user is first activated, they can be sent a welcome email. To activate the welcome email, select "Notify User" and an email template from the User Message Template dropdown. The default message template used is user:welcome_email and you can customize this by selecting Mail > Mail Templates from the settings menu.

The same applies for notifying the system administrators when a new user joins, with the "Notify Administrators" checkbox. The administrators to notify are selected using Notify Admin Group dropdown.

  • Found the plugin not useful on 10 Nov, 2019

    October has an amazing potential for becoming a #1 CMS and an Application Development System. But at the moment a lot of these capabilities are not implemented state of the art.

    The user plugin is quite typical for that. One the one hand easy to install, easy to use and working properly. On the other hand the real potential for practical use is not given. As for example: no user extendable fields, no expandable user rights and of course no relational tables. Thanks to Ivan Doric and his YouTube tutorials one can learn how to do so - but the old fashioned way. (So sadly I had to decide to dismiss the user plugin and write our own one)

    Anyhow with these steps forward October could be one of the best systems I know. I am observing now the development for almost two years, but I am missing hints for these crucial steps - still hoping they will come soon! May be a more active community would be helpful? (eg see the bug and feature system of LimeSurvey)

    Maybe it will help some one If you use custom layout:

    1. do not forget to add {% framework extra %} at the end of layout. Otherwise AJAX will not work

    2. add at the (!) top of layout file [account] redirect = "dashboard" paramCode = "code" forceSecure = 0

      Otherwise you will get onRegister and onSignin not found

    Guys, it's nice to have so many localizations, but none of the form partials use them. (For example the login partial). I see you had a lot of work with the loc files, but your plugin only use the half of them , because in the templates the text is hardwired. Except this, the plugin is great.

    This plugin works well for single contact form or if you have the patience to redo everything if you have multiple forms each page. Though very useful it lacks some of the need functionality that will make it a great plugins like:

    1. Duplicate Forms - So you can only add/remove needed fields
    2. Export Forms - this is a must specially when you need to test your forms locally and exporting them to your production, well you can do this by going directly to database but that forfeits the purpose of having a CMS.
    3. Docs need to be updated and more examples will be helpful (e.g. Date pickers using bootstrap)
    4. Better formatting, though you can get around using bootstrap

    Overall, I'm happy with the plugin

    The user plugin will be required by the vast majority of sites for commenting on content and helping to prevent spamming. Adding the plugin to the base installation gives a massive advantage to sites that require user access. Although it could be more detailed, it is a good framework which can be expanded upon.

  • Found the plugin not useful on 22 Jul, 2016

    Too many plugins relying on this one plugin, having to extend everything in the boot section of the Plugin.php, Cannot extend models because of this reliance. ( I was able to override the auth facade, however relations remain unable to be overridden because of the the extending features).

    Its a good plugin, but the fact that every other plugin has a developer being forced to use it really does not work out well. Its a huge barrier that needs to be fixed, mainly issue with extending needs to be fixed.

    As a PHP user for over 15 years and a Laravel advocate for the past 3, I've gotta say I'm really loving OctoberCMS. I had built and maintained my own PHP web framework for years, but when it became to unwieldy to continue to maintain, I searched high and low for something that would replace all the functionality I'd spent so long creating, and October, thus far, has delivered in spades. The User plugin is a basic scaffolding for end user accounts, written cleanly and simply enough that it is easy to extend once you wrap your head around October's coding conventions. I started using October on a project-for-hire, but as soon as I finish that up, I'll be redesigning two of my personal sites using October as well.

    f you desire to login with username instead of email address, then provided username is added to the registration form (in additon to email) and the login form (instead of email) then the documentation suggests it will work. However, registration saves the username as the email address, regardless of what username is specified. The only way I have managed to solve this is to make the following one line addition to the plugin code {Rainlab/User/Models/User}:

        protected $fillable = [
            'name',
            'login',
            'email',
            'password',
            'password_confirmation',
            'company',
            'phone',
            'street_addr',
            'city',
            'zip',
            'country',
            'state',
            'username'    // NOTE I HAVE ADDED THIS
        ];

    Hope this helps and can be added in future updates.

    The plugin has good functionality but not very nice error handling/display. I got round this by editing Account.php (which was a last resort as will now need to be careful when plugin is updated)....The areas of changed code are in function onSignin() as below:

            $validation = Validator::make($data, $rules);
            if ($validation->fails()) {
                $flash_message = "";
                $messages = $validation->messages();
                foreach ($messages->all() as $message)
                {
                    if ($flash_message != "")
                        $flash_message = $flash_message . " and ";
                    $flash_message = $flash_message . $message;
                }
                Flash::error($flash_message);
                return Redirect::to('account');
            }
    
            /*
             * Authenticate user (MODIFIED for FLASH MESSAGES)
             */
            try {
                $user = Auth::authenticate([
                    'login' => array_get($data, 'login'),
                    'password' => array_get($data, 'password')
                ], true);
            }
            catch (Exception $ex) {
                Flash::error($ex->getMessage());
                return Redirect::to('account'); //redirect back to login if errors
            }
            /*
             * Redirect to the intended page after successful sign in
             */
            $redirectUrl = $this->pageUrl($this->property('redirect'));
            Flash::error('User authenticated! ' . $user);
            if ($redirectUrl = post('redirect', $redirectUrl))

Upgrading from User v2 to v3

This guide can be used to help migrate from RainLab.User v1-v2 to v3. Some theme changes are required to since there are new components.

Please make sure you have a database and website backup before performing the upgrade.

Upgrade Instructions

  1. Make sure you are running October CMS v3.6 or greater.

  2. Run php artisan plugin:install rainlab.user to request the latest version (you do not need to uninstall v2 first).

  3. Continue using this plugin as normal.

  4. Clean up unused table data using php artisan user:migratev1 (optional).

Previewing Changes

We recommend installing the RainLab.Vanilla theme to demonstrate the latest functionality.

Compatible Plugins

If you are using the following plugins, please upgrade them to v2.0 at the same time as this plugin:

Package New Version
rainlab/forum-plugin ^2.0
rainlab/location-plugin ^2.0
rainlab/userplus-plugin ^2.0
rainlab/notify-plugin Optional

If you are using the rainlab/notify-plugin for sending the new user notifications, you may uninstall this plugin since these notifications are now included in the user settings.

Key Differences

  • Laravel's authentication system is used as the underlying technology.

  • Two-Factor authentication is provided out of the box.

  • A User Log has been implemented to track and audit user actions, such as changing email address.

  • An Address Book component has been added to the UserPlus plugin.

  • The Forum plugin has the ability to "Poke" users to demonstrate the notifications component.

Breaking Changes

Renamed Settings Model

The RainLab\User\Models\Settings model has been renamed to RainLab\User\Models\Setting for consistency with the core system design.

Renamed JWT Auth Method

The Auth::checkBearerToken has been renamed to Auth::loginUsingBearerToken to be more descriptive of its outcome. The Auth::checkBearerToken method still exists and will return the user or false, instead of logging in the user internally.

Account Component Split Up

The functionality of the Account component has been split in to three components:

Component Purpose
Account Update user details, enable two factor, delete sessions, delete the user account
Authentication Authenticate a user
Registration Register a new user

Session Component

The allowedUserGroups property has been removed from the Session component. This can be supplemented by some Twig code:

{% if not user.inGroup('premium-users') %}
    {% do redirect('account/login') %}
{% endif }

Require Activation is Removed

The "Require Activation" functionality has been removed from the settings page for simplicity. The replacement approach below is more flexible, since custom pages or banners can be used based on the requirements.

A user can be checked if they are verified using Twig:

{% if not user.hasVerifiedEmail %}
    {% do redirect('account/login') %}
{% endif %}

Checking administrator approval is possible by creating an "Approved User" user group and placing approved users in that group.

Alternatively, by extending the users database table with a is_approved field. Then check in Twig:

{% if not user.is_approved %}
    {% do redirect('account/login') %}
{% endif %}

MailBlocker model replaced by UserPreference

The RainLab\User\Models\MailBlocker model has been replaced by RainLab\User\Models\UserPreference. The classes function differently and UserPreference is more generic for controlling user preferences.

Events Updated

The following event names have changed:

  • New events added to the events documentation.
  • Removed rainlab.user.reactivate event, since users can no longer reactivate their account without help from an administrator.

Feedback

If there are any changes you would like us to include to make upgrading easier, let us know and we can accommodate them in a new release.

Thanks for reading.
