MOD Name: Show newest active user
Author: starwiz
MOD Description: Author Notes: This extremely simple mod changes the behavior of the "newest registered user" listing on a board's index. Normally, the last user to submit a registration form is displayed as the newest registered user. After applying this mod, however, the newest *active* registered user will be shown instead. This is especially useful on boards in which the admin must activate every registration, because it prevents outlandish usernames that the admin wouldn't approve from appearing on the index page.

MOD Version: 1.0.1

Download File: Show_newest_active_user_1.0.1.mod

Security Score: 0

This MOD has only been tested by the phpBB MOD Team with the phpBB version in the topic title. It may not work in any other versions of phpBB.

FWIW, this functionality is available in Active members Only, which also stops inactive members from appearing on the memberlist. I do realize that there's nothing wrong with having more than one MOD to do the same thing. Just thought folks might want to check out the other as well if they're interested in this one. 8)

Ooo.. thank you for pointing this out. I am actually using the Hide Unactive Member mod from phpbbhack.
I'll check out if that's exactly what i want later.

I am here not very often and I think this is the reason, why I need help with this: I downloaded the MOD but I don't know what to do with the file: it has the .mod extension. What's the next step after downloading the file? Do I need to rename or somehow extract the file?

Just open the file with wordpad or notepad and read the instructions.

Guys, another thing to do is install the captcha visual verification which is detailed here:

It works like a champ. I've had it installed for 2 weeks now and not one single spam bot reg. Before that, it was a daily occurrence.
