Override Global Settings in WordPress with RegistrationMagic
Want to customize forms for your site? RegistrationMagic is your answer. It offers various fields and options to create the best registration forms. The plugin offers a feature called “Global Settings”. That allows users to manage General Form Settings, Security, and WordPress form payment settings. “Global Overrides” is this plugin’s dedicated section aiding you to override global settings in WordPress forms.
In some cases, you don’t need to apply ‘Global Settings’ to a form. This is the point at which “Global Overrides” comes into use. Since it allows you to set specific settings for a single form ignoring “Global Settings” completely. Thus letting you override global settings in WordPress.
Once you enable a global override, that Global Setting for the form will become ineffective. So all you need to do is, turn on the “Global Override” feature of this WordPress registration forms plugin and neutralize global settings.
On the other hand, not all settings can be overridden. Only those that are available in Global Overrides can be.
In this tutorial, we will learn to override global settings in WordPress forms.
Navigating to the “Global Overrides” section
Click on “All Forms” from the plugin menu on your dashboard. Here we are going to work with the General Purpose Form. Hover on the envelope of the form and click on “Dashboard”.
You are now on the “Dashboard” of the form. From here you can publish and configure its features. Scroll down to the “Configure” section of your form dashboard. Click on the “Global Overrides” icon and drill into it.
You are now on the “Global Overrides” screen. Note that this setting, in this case, is only relative to the General Purpose Form. Users can override global settings on individual forms from this page.
Configuring “Global Overrides”
Using the first field, you can choose to send or not send email notifications to every user who submits a form. By checking the checkbox, you can manually add email IDs of users whose notifications you want to receive. You can add recipients by clicking the “Click to Add More” link. To sum up, the new recipient list overrides the list created in “Global Settings”.
The underlying field displays form limits above the form. The frontend displays a text saying “10 out of 50 registrations complete” or “1 day left for registrations to close”. Selecting the “Yes” radio button displays the expiry countdown. Whereas the “No” button displays nothing. Further, selecting “Default” fetches the value from “Global Settings” itself.
Further, for WordPress new user registration, the admin has the right to choose which user he/she wants to take in. If admin selects ‘Yes’ in the “WordPress Registration Auto Approval” field, it activates user accounts post submission. If they don’t want to do so they can select “No”. Then activate users manually. The “User Manager” section allows manual activation of user accounts. Unless you go with “Default”. One can finally override global settings in WordPress by activating the functionality from “Global Overrides”.
You can also enable/disable your WordPress form security. Override the reCaptcha option in Global Settings by just selecting the “No” option. Selecting default retains reCaptcha in “Global Settings”.
Moreover, overriding it removes the reCaptcha from the form.
The last field sets the form submission limit for a device. In short, you can now set a limit to the number of submissions per day from a specific device. To disable this setting set the value to zero. Setting values other than zero prevents spammers from submitting the form many times.
One Plugin, Many Forms
This is how you override global settings in WordPress forms. It comes in use when you want to create unique forms for your site. Not all forms need to be governed by Global Settings. This is the advantage of this plugin. It allows users to manage forms globally as well as singly. There’s no need to code or design forms, this plugin does that for you. So even beginners are making use of it. Making it more popular with time.
