Signup Form Block Options

There are lots of features in the Download Manager signup form that helps to customize and make your required registration form. Here, I will describe each feature of the Signup blocks in detail.

Here you can select a role to assign the users registered through this form. Useful when you want to assign a different user role ( WordPress default is subscriber role) to registered users. Or, when you want to keep multiple signup forms for different user roles.

Verify Email:
With this option, you can verify your user email address before they take any service from your site. Many users just fill up the registration form with any random non-existent email address. So it’s a vital step to protect your site from unwanted users.

Auto login:
If you want to keep the process faster, you can enable the auto-login option. It helps your users to log in automatically, once they have registered to your site through the registration form.

Social Signup only:
If you want to skip manual user signups using email added and only keep the social signup, you can enable this option. And you can configure or enable/disable individual social signup from WPDM settings.

Here you may add any special or additional instructions before or after the registration form, such as offer validity, what type of form it is, etc.

Logo :
You can select or upload an image in this sign-up form with this option that will view on the upper side of the form.

Now, you can set all the features as you need for your registration form and click on the update or publish button on the top right of your website so that the User Registration form will appear to your visitors.
