I am a newbie to expressionengine. I have EE 2.5.5 purchased version. What i want to know is can i create a member registration form and explicitly ask users to register?


The only way to allow members to register without an add-on is to use the Member module's registration functionality. This page is displayed based on your "member" trigger word, uses a completely different set of templates from the rest of your site, and is generally a pain in the ass.

(This is why modules like FreeMember and User are so popular.)

  • @Derek: out of curiosity, why wouldn't EE have a stand alone member registration form/tag? – Abie Mar 14 '13 at 5:46
  • @mjr +1 it is for FreeMember :) – Abie Mar 14 '13 at 5:47
