The “simple” (one-step) backend

As an alternative to the default backend, and an example of writing alternate workflows, django-registration-redux bundles a one-step registration system in registration.backend.simple. This backend’s workflow is deliberately as simple as possible:

  1. A user signs up by filling out a registration form.

  2. The user’s account is created and is active immediately, with no intermediate confirmation or activation step.

  3. The new user is logged in immediately.


To use this backend, simply include the URLconf registration.backends.simple.urls somewhere in your site’s own URL configuration. For example:

path('accounts/', include('registration.backends.simple.urls')),

No additional settings are required, but two optional settings are supported:


A boolean (either True or False) indicating whether registration of new accounts is currently permitted. A default of True will be assumed if this setting is not supplied.


Redirection url after successful registration. Default value is /

The default form class used for account registration will be registration.forms.RegistrationForm, although this can be overridden by supplying a custom URL pattern for the registration view and passing the keyword argument form_class, or by subclassing registration.backends.simple.views.RegistrationView and either overriding form_class or implementing get_form_class().
