Default off:

Two new plugins are available in 1.6 but are disabled by default.

  • Contact Creator Help
    Creates a new linked contact record for each new user created.
  • Profile Help
    This example profile plugin allows you to insert additional fields into user registration and profile display. This is intended as an example of the types of extensions to the profile you might want to create.

The users extension lets your site visitors register, login and logout, change their passwords and other information, and recover lost passwords. In the administrator it allows you to create, block and manage users and create user groups and access levels. Help
