By default, registration on new CampusPress networks is set to “Both sites and user accounts can be registered” and registration is limited to your educational email domain.

This means new usernames and sites can be registered using your sign up page located at example.com/signup/ provided the person registers using an allowed email domain.

“Sorry, that email address is not allowed!” message displays if the email domain hasn’t been added to the allowed email domain list.

Email contact@campuspress.com with your CampusPress URL and information on changes needed if you would like to:

  1. Change registration options
  2. Add other email domains or remove limited email registration.
  3. Disable notification of new registrations to the network admin email address.

Registration options

Registration can be changed to any of the following options:

  1. Registration is disabled – New users can’t create their own usernames or sites.  All usernames and sites must be created using Blog & User Creator, My Class, Batch Create, by a Super admin user or using one of our authentication options such as LDAPGoogle Apps, or Shibboleth.
  2. User accounts may be registered – New users can create their usernames using your signup page but sites need to be created using Blog & User Creator, My Class, Batch Create or by the Super admin user.
  3. Logged in users may register new sites – logged in users can create new sites using your signup page using the “Create New Site” link in Dashboard > My Sites.
  4. Both sites and user accounts can be registered – usernames and sites can be created using your signup page.

If you are using one of our authentication options such as LDAPGoogle Apps, or Shibboleth you would normally use “Registration is disabled” or “Logged in users may register new sites” and set your authentication to auto create usernames the first time a new user logs in with their educational username and password.

Email contact@campuspress.com, and include your CampusPress URL, to let us know if you need your registration option changed.

Limited Email Registration

If registration is set to “User accounts may be registered” or “Both sites and user accounts can be registered” only educational email domains are allowed to ensure only those who are part of your community are able to create a site or username.

gmail.com and other web based emails aren’t allowed when registration is open as these are common email domains used by people who create sites to promote products and websites.

All email domains are allowed if you are using either “Registration is disabled” or “Logged in users may register new sites”.

Registration notification

By default, the network admin email address receives an email notification every time some registers a site or user account.
