Add custom username restriction options?

Post by samuel404 »

In phpBB there are only 6 username restriction options.

Code: Select all

$user_char_ary = array('USERNAME_CHARS_ANY', 'USERNAME_ALPHA_ONLY', 'USERNAME_ALPHA_SPACERS', 'USERNAME_LETTER_NUM', 'USERNAME_LETTER_NUM_SPACERS', 'USERNAME_ASCII');
But that is not enough for some forums, can anybody write an extension of this?

Are you saying that the current restrictions on what can be entered in a Username do not work with non Latin languages? If that is the case then this should be raised in the Bug tracker.
