|Send email when a user registers
||This option will send an email notification when a new person registers on your website.
||The email address entered here is where the notification will be sent.
||Computer programs or bots are sometimes created to attempt to gain access to websites, CAPTCHA is a helpful tool that tries to confirm a real person is creating an account for your website, rather than a computer. CAPTCHA requires someone registering on your website to type the letters they see in an image that is displayed, which is a difficult task for a non-human.
||OpenID is a universal login protocol which works with many different websites and software suites, and simplifies the registration process. OpenID allows users to login with existing accounts such as facebook, yahoo, or google instead of requiring them to create new accounts with you.
|Use emails for login
|| This will require users to use their email address as a username instead of a username that is setup when they register.
