ACP User Registration 1.0.1 is Released!
ACP User Registration 1.0.1, the "Say It, Don't Bugspray It" edition, has been released! This update fixes a potential security issue present in Graham's insert_user class. If you are using 1.0.0 or earlier, it is highly recommended that you view the update.
About ACP User Registration
ACP User Registration is a MODding's Most Wanted
MOD which allows a quick registration of new users from within the admin panel. This is great for quick creation of new users for demo boards, test boards, etc., and much better than the alternative which requires logging out, registering a new user, and then logging back in as the administrator. Also, if there's any activation methods required, those have to be run.
ACP User Registration eliminates all that with a simple form that can be as comprehensive as an entire list to as simple as username/password/e-mail. Activation measures are bypassed. ACP User Registration can also send an e-mail to the new user, or automatically add the user to one or more groups automatically.
The MOD is quite lightweight, all that needs to be edited is lang_admin.php to add some lang entries; the rest are files to upload.
Will this MOD be available for phpBB3?
No, I am only planning to maintain this MOD for phpBB2. However, Highway of Life is working on a similar MOD for phpBB3 which you should take a look at
Can I use ACP User Registration to register banned users?
This has been considered, but the answer is no. When registering, the users registered from the admin panel go through the same suite of validation checks that normal registrations do. The reason for this is that the framework behind ACP User Registration simply creates brand new users; they are not identifiable as being registered from the admin panel or not. They are just new users. Any limitations on new registrations due to bans will thus take effect, and any code to avoid them would have to be very comprehensive. Besides, you should follow the rules you set.
I get the following error:
Warning: Missing argument 10 for validate_optional_fields() in /home/ACCOUNTNAME/public_html/phpBB/includes/functions_validate.php on line XXX
This error occurs because you've installed at least one other MOD which adds a field to the default profile, and ACP User Registration was packaged without that MOD in mind.
Here is a temporary fix which will leave that field blank during the registration process. You can go back and edit that field later.

If you get a new error that says Missing argument 11, then repeat the same instruction above until you don't get an error anymore.
Thanks MUCH to Graham for his insert_user class -- it is the driving force behind this MOD.
I don't have any, however if someone would like to post some in this topic, I'll put a link here.
Want to translate this MOD? Make a complete translation of the install.txt file (which includes all the lang entries to be translated) and send me a PM; I'll give you my e-mail address for which to send it to. You don't have to do any translations to the extra files. I hope to get a nice list of languages to link to here!
Enjoy ACP User Registration!
