    I need two buttons. The Login button and the Sign Up button that goes directly to the create an account page. I know the way Xenforo has it setup usually works but I have too many computer illiterate people asking me how to sign up.

    Edit the template(s)?

    Yeah. First I'm trying to figure out what to do cause my FoolHoneyPotBot addon stopped working right.

    Wouldn't it just be easier to make a 'how to register' FAQ page than to try to simplify simplicity?

    I just went ahead and created another button.

    Template: Sidebar Visitor Panel

    Code:
    Find:
    <label for="LoginControl" id="SignupButton"><a href="{xen:link login}" class="inner">{xen:if $xenOptions.registrationSetup.enabled, {xen:phrase sign_up_now}, {xen:phrase log_in}}</a></label>
    
    Place Below:
    <label for="LoginControls" id="SignupButton"><a href="register" class="inner">Create Account</a></label>
    *shrugs*

    I would like to change the color for the second button though. Hmm...

    Use inline styling or create a new class.

    Doesn't look like how I want border-wise but it's close enough for now.

    If they can't figure out how to register, what makes you think they'll even know where to find the FAQ page, let alone understand it if they do.

    Creating an FAQ page on how to register is more work than a few minor template edits to achieve desired results.

    If they can't work out how to register or find a FAQ page, what hope have they got of being able to post a new thread?
