Registration, e-mail verifications and profiles.

Project description

django-userprofiles is a simple registration app with some extra features.

Registration settings


If enabled, the form checks if the user provided email is already in use. (useful if you want to allow user to log in with their email address)


If enabled, the form shows two email fields. The user is required to enter the same email address twice.


If enabled, the form shows two password fields. The user is required to enter the same password twice to proceed.


If enabled, the registration form adds two fields for first and last name.


You can override the default registration form by changing this setting. Defaults to ‘userprofiles.forms.RegistrationForm’.


This app provides a mechanism to verify user accounts by sending an email with an activation link. To use the account verification you have to add userprofiles.contrib.accountverification to your INSTALLED_APPS in order to enable the verification.


Defines the amount of days a user has to activate his account. Defaults to 7.


Removes the username field and generates a UUID for the required username for sites that want to use email addresses as logins.


Automatically log the user in upon registration. This setting cannot be used in conjunction with USERPROFILES_USE_ACCOUNT_VERIFICATION.


Define a named URL to redirect the user upon successful registration. Defaults to ‘userprofiles_registration_complete’.

Profile settings

django-userprofiles is prepared to work with profile models and provides some features to make it easy to manage these profiles.


If enabled, userprofiles will look for the model set in AUTH_PROFILE_MODULE. it’s likely that you need to overwrite USERPROFILES_REGISTRATION_FORM to add your additional profile fields and define a save_profile method which is called after the user was created.


If enabled, userprofiles will add a profile inline to you user admin.


django-userprofiles also comes with a contrib app to allow profile changes and a profile view.


You can overwrite the default profile form to add extra functionality. The default form is a ModelForm for you AUTH_PROFILE_MODULE.


If enabled, the user is allowed to simply change the email address in the profile change view. This setting can only be activated if USERPROFILES_CHECK_UNIQUE_EMAIL is disabled.

If you want to check for unique emails and allow your users to change their email addresses, you have to use the emailverification app.


Defines the redirect destination after the profile was saved. Defaults to the named URL userprofiles_profile_change.


django-userprofiles provides a simple app to do confirmed email address changes. (Users have the re-verify their email address after a change)


This app provides a mechanism to verify email changes by sending an email with an activation link. To use the email verification you have to add userprofiles.contrib.emailverification to your INSTALLED_APPS in order to enable the verification.


Defines the number of days a user has time to verify her/his new email address. Defaults to 2.


Defines the redirect destination after the email change was verified. Defaults to the named URL userprofiles_email_change.


There is an auth backend which allows your users to log in using their email address. Add userprofiles.auth_backends.EmailOrUsernameModelBackend to your settings if you want to use this feature.
