new registration method

edited February 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Could someone explain me a general guideline in order to add a new registration method to Vanilla 2.0.
I’d like to port this plug-in:
for vanilla 2.0 but I can’t find a smart way to do it.
Thanks in advance.

    I must look at ReCAPTCHa realization.

    I see that it is used in

    I really do not know how to make this via plugin.
    I think that you'll need to add new registration type (to existin ones).
    And somehow add necessary functionality to above files (views part will be yours and will be different).

    Thanks for the details.

    The problem is if I create a new registration type, it risks being obsolete/incompatible on the next releases of Vanilla.

    But so far it looks like the only option I have.

    You can create the new registration type by extending the EntryController with a plugin, thus keeping it out of the core code and not causing an issue with future upgrades.

    For instance, you could add an 'Awesome' registration method with a method in your plugin named this: EntryController_RegisterAwesome_Create($Sender) and adding 'Awesome' to the Garden.Registration.Method array in your config file.

    Thanks Lincoln, but looks like I can't do this because it will always be treated as "Basic".

    In class.entrycon line 769 there is this hard-coded array:

    if (!in_array($RegistrationMethod, array('Closed', 'Basic','Captcha','Approval','Invitation')))
    $RegistrationMethod = 'Basic';
