Creating by Proxy

Proxy-creating users

Note: This feature has moved from to the administrator backend.

To create an account for another user:

  1. In the backend, go to the Members component under the Users menu.
  2. Click on the "+" button to add a new member.
  3. Fill in the information about the new user.
  4. Click "Save & Close" and if successful, you will be taken to the user's member backend information page.
  5. At this point, if the hub's setting (found in a plug-in called "User - Joomla!" under Extensions>> Plug-in Manager) is set to send email out to newly-created users, the user will be sent an email about the account and credentials (example below). If email notification is off, the system will not send an email to the proxy-created user, and it will be up to you to let them know about their credentials.
