How does one go about activating this mod? I installed it as per the instructions in the .XML, but haven't seen anything in my ACP for activation. I also browsed over 10 pages of this thread and don't see any instructions on how to activate the mod. What am I missing? Where am I supposed to see an activation link in the ACP?
ACP->User Registration Settings
Is there some step not mentioned in the installation instructions? All it said was to edit and upload a few files and purge the cache. Is there supposed to be some kind of database work, new files, etc.?
There is also a sql update that needs to run on the database which is also in the directions. Subsequently, you can use the file located here
which will do the same thing without having to visit phpmyadmin or whatever it is you use to update your database. Download the file, unzip it, upload it into the root of your forum, login as founder and browse to the file to have the database changes made.
BTW, you should take great care in any file that you use to run on your forum that hasn't been validated by the phpBB team, but I'm not a malicious person so you can trust me.
The mod, if activated, will add an additional field to the user registration process. When active the field needs a question and an answer set in the ACP->User Registration Settings. The reason for two answers is due to questions such as "What is 5+7?" where the answer can either be "12" or "twelve". If the question is, eg, "What color is a crystal clear blue lake?" then the only logical answer would be "blue"...capitalization does not matter for the answer.
Hope that helps a bit.
