Hi,

1) I noticed this site has an addition checkbox on sign up:
https://rplstoday.com/community/?wpforo=signup
"I agree to receive an email confirmation with a link to set a password."

How can I add a mandatory tick checkbox to my site?
https://smallcaps.com.au/forum/?wpforo=signup
And also to edit the text.

2) The other site has an auto post feature for when articles are published it also get pasted in the forum...how can I do this?
If I update the article (change the test) will it update the post in the forum as well?

Article:
https://rplstoday.com/land-surveying/2019/03/27/emlid-launches-reach-rs2-multi-band-rtk-gnss-receiver-with-centimeter-precision/

Forum:
https://rplstoday.com/community/gnss-geodesy/emlid-launches-reach-rs2-multi-band-rtk-gnss-receiver-with-centimeter-precision/#post-494847

It shows the comments from the forum under the article with the wpDiscuz plugin.

3) If I integrate wpDiscuz on the site for our articles will logged in users from the forum be able to comment straight away?

Are users that register to comment on wpDiscuz added as a 'user' to the wordpress data base?
ie. so they can then use the forum and I capture their username and email? I want to make sure they are not entered in the user database twice...once for the forum and once for wpDiscuz.
Will it use their same gravatar image from the forum in wpDiscuz?

Willing to buy plugins if needed, not a problem.

@stocksforum,

Please read this doc:

This is done by the wpForo – Blog Cross Posting add-on. Please check it out here:

Yes, there is even the option that allows to Replace Comment Author Link to Forum Profile. The option is located in Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Features tab. 

Are users that register to comment on wpDiscuz added as a 'user' to the wordpress data base?

All these questions will be answered in this support topic very soon.

Great, thanks, I will buy that cross posting plugin and have activated the comment author link and turned on for the tickbox in registration.

However with "I agree to receive an email confirmation with a link to set a password."...I need it to say something else, how can I edit the text?

"I agree to be added to the Small Caps newsletter." I need it to say instead for the checkbox.

@stocksforum,

Just navigate to Dashboard > Forums > Phrases admin page, find the phrase and change as you like.
