Usage

This extension tweaks user registration process in order to make users populate their user pages with semantic data at registration time. Whenever the user registration form is requested the user is redirected to the Semantic Signup special page where he has to enter the usual account data and some additional information into a semantic form. When the form is submitted, the usual account information is used to register the new user account and a new "User:Username" page is created and populated with the additional data provided via the form.

For details on how to adjust the settings and prepare the required form and template, please have a look at the configuration guideline.
