You can do that with the built in custom profile fields.
Set it as a number field from and to the 4 digits you want it to be.

eg, code is 2468 set the field as from 2468 and to 2468


Can't do it with words though.

Wouldn't that show the field in the profile too?

Finished it off anyways in case somebody wants it more clean than using a custom profile field.
The current version is 1.0.0, will somebody mind testing it?

Yes it would but I was just saving you the effort of making something that was already there.

Great to see you've done this mod!

I will put this mod FIRST on my list of mods when I upgrade! It is better to have this as a separate field, after all...who needs to see the VIP code in the user profile? LOL

Well done!

I'm sorry but I don't understand the point to this mod. phpBB has built in features fending off automatic registration scripts

And they have always, inevitably, fallen victim to new cracking techniques. The ONLY way this mod can be circumvented, or "cracked" is by a LIVE person registering for the forum...it's happened ONCE in the year I've been using this mod, for phpBB2...on two forums.

This is the only spam stopper you will ever need...you can even shut off the captcha and let this one handle everything for you...

The modification isn't necesery at the moment, but later it will be as useful as the original from phpBB2. Better to have the mod ready in advance.

I just tried this and this does NOT work because it reveals the code when you click submit
The value of “Registration Password” is too small, a minimum value of 112183 is required.



By the way,

How do I install your mod????

Just a couple questions:

1. I'm guessing the code at the beginning of the file (under the SQL heading) is supposed to go into the database. Am I correct?

2. Does the code have to be a number? I was using a similar mod for my 2.0.22 board, and was using my Ventrilo server's pw as an authorization code, and I'd like to keep it that way if possible. Thanks!
