Change Visual Confirmation coding?

Post by FPClub »

Is there a way to edit what shows up in the visual confirmation box? I looked in the language file and didn't see anything. Instead of the code that's there now, i'd like to either change it to a word(s) or maybe just lowercase letters...Try to make it easier for people who don't realize it's cap-specific...

Any way to do this?

You can do this easily by editing the function gen_rand_string() in profile.php:

Code: Select all

function gen_rand_string($hash)
	$chars = array( 'a', 'A', 'b', 'B', 'c', 'C', 'd', 'D', 'e', 'E', 'f', 'F', 'g', 'G', 'h', 'H', 'i', 'I', 'j', 'J',  'k', 'K', 'l', 'L', 'm', 'M', 'n', 'N', 'o', 'O', 'p', 'P', 'q', 'Q', 'r', 'R', 's', 'S', 't', 'T',  'u', 'U', 'v', 'V', 'w', 'W', 'x', 'X', 'y', 'Y', 'z', 'Z', '1', '2', '3', '4', '5', '6', '7', '8', '9', '0');
just edit the $chars array contents :)
