User Registration for Downloads Manager Frequently Asked Questions

How are Registration Codes added to the front-end for users to log in?

You need to add a shortcode to the page through which you want users to log in. Once this shortcode is added and saved a form will appear that will allow users to log in using the registration code they have received.

To learn more about adding registration forms to your site see this Help article.

Is a new Registration Code made for every new user?

No. Registration codes are generated for each new user Group that you create.

You can create a new group and only assign one person to it if you choose to, if someone is going to have special settings.

To learn more about creating user groups see this Help article.

Can I manually add existing site users to user groups that I create?

Yes. When you’re creating a new group or editing an existing one you can choose existing site members to add to the group.

To learn more about adding users to groups see this Help article.

Is it possible to make vanity / custom registration codes?

No. The Download Manager Registration add-on cannot handle this on its own. We do however have a plugin that would be able to. The CM Registration Pro Plugin can achieve this for you.

To learn more about the Registration Pro Plugin Click Here.

Can I tell how many people have Registered using a certain registration code?

Yes. You can tell at a glance in the User Groups page in the Downloads Manager Plugin settings how many people have used the Registration code.

Or if you want a more detailed look at exactly who has registered using it you can click on Edit to see a list of the users.

To learn more about this see this Help article.

If a Registration Code is somehow posted in a public place and I end up with spammers or access to my downloads is compromised what should I do?

First generate a new download code for the user group, that way users using the old code will no longer be able to register using it. Then go through the list of users and remove any that you don’t wish to have access to your downloads or to be able to upload files to your website.
