User registration at checkout

User registration at checkout

I have had several people call when ordering from the store who can not register at checkout. How can I remove the password complexity for user registration? Is there an easy way to change the checkout as "continue as guest" without user registration?

The PowerStore relies on users being logged in to record the transactions properly for that user. This is an integral part of how PowerStore works and altering this functionality could potentially cause your store to not work properly.

You would have to remove the validations that are on the checkout page for the logged in user as well as the ones that are on the confirm pages. This would make it so the user is not forced to login, you could remove the login forms or add some messaging to them after this.

In reality, i would be happy with a minimum password length of 4 characters, and allow the password to be all numbers of all letters, but not require one of each.

When I tried changing:

var sprypassword1 = new Spry.Widget.ValidationPassword("sprypassword1", {minChars:6, minAlphaChars:1, minNumbers:1, validateOn:["blur"]});

To this:
var sprypassword1 = new Spry.Widget.ValidationPassword("sprypassword1", {minChars:4, minAlphaChars:0, minNumbers:0, validateOn:["blur"]});

on several of the pages, it allowed me to save a password with 4 charactrers, but would not let me log on to check the finished order. Do you know which pages and which lines of code I need to change to allow 4 character passwords that could be all numbers or all letters?

In my opinion, this would be an opportunity for improvement in a future release. As stated earlier, I have had several users leave and call the contact number saying they could not complete the checkout process.

When it comes to the login and registration there are server side validations that are in place to ensure the values meet the minimum requirements. On the login page you can see the validations on lines 23-25:

php:
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateEL(((isset($_POST["userpassword"]))?$_POST["userpassword"]:"") . "",6,50,true,2);

  $WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateRX(((isset($_POST["userpassword"]))?$_POST["userpassword"]:"") . "","/[0-9]/",true,3);
  $WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateRX(((isset($_POST["userpassword"]))?$_POST["userpassword"]:"") . "","/[a-z,A-Z]/",true,4);



You will see almost the exact same server validations on the users_Registration and users_Registration_full pages. The first one here is for the entry length, the second two are form the alphanumeric characters requirements. If you have the Validation Toolkit or CSS Form Builder you can edit these validations from the server behaviors area. You can also remove any of the validations that you do not want occurring.
