User Registration

Dear PKP Team

The User Registration of OJS is simple however CAPTCHA give some protection.

It will be more secure if OJS use the same registration way as we follow the User Registration procedure for PKP Support at:
ucp.php?mode=register.

Dear rishigh,

OxS (which means all of PKP Suite, if I'm not mistaken) has for quite a while CAPTCHA support.
Check your ojs2/config.inc.php file, and be sure to install the font you want to use.
FreeFont is not always standard or available, so, if you don't have permission to install new fonts, look for any other font available in the system that suits you.

Dear Ramon
No, I just want to suggest the "use the same registration way in OJS". Please see the Red circle in attachment for mere explaination.

Dear Rise,

Now I see what you mean.
Let's see what the PKP Team has to say about this feature.

Hi all,

Rise, thanks for your suggestion. In terms of further registration/anti-spam plans, we plan to eventually add reCaptcha support -- see http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=4082. However, we don't currently have any plans to add user-created and -controlled registration fields as an antispam measure. But the general feature request makes a lot of sense, given that we do get questions asking how to extend the typical registration page. I have submitted a feature request here: http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=6420. It should be general enough to suit anti-spam needs as well. Please feel free to CC yourself to that report for future updates.

Cheers,
James

First appology for this repeated mail in two threads. I post this here because both thread have same problem.

Hi
My OJS have User registrartion with CAPTCHA.

Rcecently, I observed that some users register at my OJS with fake email id.

This happen because in present system of OJS give instant access just after the register with athentication of e-mail id.

It will be useful and secure if OJS send first authentical to the new user the allow the access.
