I've just posted my first attempt at creating an MVC registration page at
It's only the code (doesn't include the Smarty html templates) and my first
attempt so I don't expect it to be that great. It works though and I have a
little sample running on a server here.
To make it more flexible I'll make the model and view classes into parameters
I pass to the controller. That'll let me use the one registration controller
for other pages which require different view and model classes.
This is only a simple implementation of this design. It does not mean I can
create one controller and use it to control all my registration pages but it
looks neat, and relatively tidy. (I've gone down the road of creating God
classes already, and they've become very unwieldy!)
Since I've also created an online editor to edit Smarty templates it means our
marketing guy can decide which fields should be on any particular form
without bothering me!
