Mod Name / Version: User Friendly Registration v1.3

Description: Several new users of my board were really angry about the registration page. There are more than a dozen ways to get an error displayed on a seperate page. If you use the browsers "back"-button, sometimes all of the input is gone and you have to retype Loginname, Displayname and eMail again.

This can happen several times until success:
- if the "I Agree" box is not checked
- if the eMail address is not valid
- if the Login Name is occupied
- if the Display Name is occupied
etc...

Not really user Friendly.

This hack does the following:
- it displays the error messages on the "New user" page
- it highlights the corresponding field
- in case of an error, it keeps the values of several input fields

This hack does NOT support:
- error messages for the "age checking" stuff
- error messages for all the optional fields, except the password field
(see Control Panel » Registration Settings » Registration Screen)

Included are the strings for English, Spanish and German language files.

Great mod! Works just as advertised. This functionality should have been in the UBB to begin with. Thanks!

Great mod, but if the e-mail addresses don't match, it goes on to the next "we cannot proceed" page and requires the user to go back and fix it. Could support for that perhaps be added for this?
