Jamie: If for some odd reason you’d like to be able to use view parameters (userParameters) in user module’s register.php provided by eZ publish, here’s the 5 lines of code you need to add.

After the line:



Then, in your overridden register.tpl, you can access the userParameter like this:

That is to say, the register.tpl should then work as described here.

The above may not be the most correct/elegant/efficient way to do it, but it works for me, and that’s all I need right now.

And thanks go to Katana on the #ezpublish IRC channel for prodding me in the right direction with the above.
