I do have one question. I went to save an edit to my profile and it made me answer the humanizer question. Is there a bypass for those that have already registered?

Just did a quick test. Everytime you edit your profile you have to answer this question.

Just a small mistake in install file:

Code: Select all

$lang['Are_u_human_wrong'] = 'Sorry, but the "humanizer" question must be answerd.';
should be

Code: Select all

$lang['Are_u_human_wrong'] = 'Sorry, but the "humanizer" question must be answered.';

Im having real trouble with this. I keep getting

Parse error: parse error, unexpected ';' in /home/azuredre/public_html/forum/includes/usercp_register.php on line 141

However tracking down the offending character is impossible. Ive copied the code exactly 3 times, but still get this. Does anyone perhaps have the entire correct text that i can copy and paste into the relevant file? Thank you in advance.

Does the error appears around this lines?

Code: Select all

#
#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------------------------------
#

	validate_optional_fields(

#
#-----[ AFTER, ADD ]------------------------------------------------------------
#

	// The humanizer MOD
	$ruhuman = ( isset($HTTP_POST_VARS['ruhuman']) ) ? ( ($HTTP_POST_VARS['ruhuman']) ? TRUE : 0 ) : 0;
Did you notice that the action is "After, Add" this line (not "Inline After add")?

If yes could you please show your "usercp_register.php" as a textfile for download?
