[BETA] AJAX Registration Checks 0.1.2

Post by Quezza » Tue May 29, 2007 2:59 pm

Latest Version: 0.1.2 All known bugs fixed

When the user is registering on your forum, my mod checks a number of things using AJAX (quickly, silently & discretely, without reloading the page). After a check, a short message is shown to the user with the result. It is a very quick check and doesn't inhibit the filling in of the form in any way, the user can just do it normally. They do not need to wait until the check is finished (which takes a faction of a second anyway) before the continue with the form.

It checks the following so far:
  • Checks if the username is available or has already been taken.
  • Checks that the username abides by all of phpBB's rules, such as no illegal characters, correct length, etc.
  • Checks that the first passwords entered is not too long or short.
  • Check how "strong" the first passwords entered is. Based on a number of factors including: length, lower-case letters, upper-case letters, digits, special characters, etc.
  • Checks that the two passwords entered are the same.
  • Checks if the first email address is in the correct format.
  • Checks if the first email address for for a valid domain with a MX record.
  • Checks that the two email addresses entered are the same.

AJAX Registration Checks Version 0.1.2

Demo Board:
Temporary Demo Board
Note: This board has a number of other mods installed and is my testing place, the this is the only mod which affects the registration process (at the moment, anyway).

Screenshots:
The standard registration form before any info has been entered is just like before the MOD:

When you enter a username that has already been entered a quick loading message is shown (for a fraction of a second and I didn't manage to screenshot it!) and then this is displayed:
Image

When a new username is entered and it has not been registered before this message is shown:
Image

I can't be bothered right now to make screenshot for all the different messages, but you should get the idea and if you don't then visit the test board or install it yourself.

What are your thoughts? Is there anything else that you would like it to be able to do checks on?

If you install it, please post here so that I know roughly how many people have installed it :)

:D Luke :D

I don't get the small images to show before the red text..

Also, some of the text does not change when you change default board language.
For instence:

Username:
if unawailibly = wrong language
If awailiby = wrong language

Mail:
If the same = wrong language
If not same = Right language

Password:
If correct = Right language
If incorrect = Right language
<-- Only row working =P

etc in this file:
language/sv/mods/ajaxchecks.php

If you make a new version i hope you have the update code changes =P

The images not showing up is probably because you either didn't update your imagesets in the ACP or missed out the changes to the ACP pages so the update didn't work. The images do work fine, I can assure you :)

All of the text is language based so there should be no problems with the MOD, itself. If some of them update and some don't, this is probably something to do with phpBB3 caching, make sure all the cache is cleared and refresh everything and try again.

:D

Strange, i did clean the cache many times..
Now i opened in firefox and it worked (tha language) o.O
Well nice anyway..

Still i have problem with the images, and i gone thrue the whole
code again and i cant see any problem.. (hmm i take a look again)

Update:
Aha, i diden't know there was other cache things then the one on "admin index" page (first page)
Well now i have learned a new thing :)



Also, i found a bugg..
User Name:
Leon -> Is already Taken
leon -> Is awailibly

So you must fix for it to check for upper/lowercase..

Ok, The bugs are:
  1. Username check is case-sensitive and it shouldn't be
  2. Checking the two email addresses are the same is case-sensitive and it shouldn't be
I'll get them fixed ASAP and add a new version

just use the php strtolower($string) function

i think thats what phpbb uses for the "username_clean" field in the phpbb_users table

Try clearing your Firefox cache.

I made this and tested it fully using Firefox (with the help of Firebug) then once it worked fine for Firefox I got it working for IE. It works perfectly in both browsers and should work in any modern browser (such as Opera, Safari, Konqueror, Flock, etc.). The screenshots were even taken in Firefox, using Screengrab.

Hmm, I think I'll just have to change style...
Because when I run FireBug, I get this error ar registration:

Code: Select all

document.getElementById("username") has no properties
sndReq("usernamecheck", "username", "Dima_2005", "ignore", "ignore")ucp.php (line 154)
onblur(blur )ucp.php (line 1)
[Break on this error] if (mode == 'usernamecheck' && document.getElementById('username').value != ''...
ucp.php (line 154)
document.getElementById("email_confirm") has no properties
onblur(blur )

I think you got everything listed that I wanted on this feature list. I think more can just be too much. Thanks for the sharing.
