Nice mod but I have a better idea inspired from Facebook .. they periodically check if the email address still exist or not .. if it doesn't exist they prompt user to update email.

That's not the purpose of this mod at all...the purpose of this mod is to alert the administrator(s) and others when a user changes his/her email address, not to alert a user if their current email address is invalid. :)

Hey Mark, thank you for sharing.
Thought I would let you know that this works perfectly in 3.8, just had to change minversion in the product to 3.8.

Note: If I select pm and thread, email still changes but, throws up 500 server error.

Sorry, I should have tested better before posting.

Mark, works perfect in vb4.2.0

Checked for all situations (you know me) :p
No problems so far.

Thanks :up:

Hey Tim,

I was planning to look into porting to vB 3.8.x tonight, as I figured it should work with little or no changes. Thanks for the heads up about the server error! :)

Excellent stuff, thank you.
However I second the Nirjonadda's request for FB like mod. Could be pretty useful.

Very nice system, but I do have a suggestion. The email notification appears whenever an email has been changed as your system was designed to do so. But the notification it is being posted (or pm'd) while the user has not confirmed the email address. So, my suggestion is:

1), Have an option so the admin can select when to notify the specified users or specific forum before or after the user validated the email address (so, either once the user has changed the email, or after the user has verified the address)

2), Bit more difficult to do (and for thread post notification only), display that the user has changed the email address and once the user has verified it, edit the post that the system made that the user verified the email address as well. Making this suggestion as some people change the email address, but never verify it.

Works as well :), just made the suggestions in my above post in regards that maybe some people find it interesting to know about an email change as soon someone attempts to change it.

Glad you like! :up:

That social media feature is not something this mod attempts to or will attempt to address. Your average vBulletin user is likely quite a bit (more like several orders of magnitude) more savvy than your average selfie-posting social media junkie, and knows how to maintain a valid email addy. :p

That's a good idea... hope to someone to do a mod like that...

Please everyone...post a request for that in an appropriate place, and stop cluttering this thread with it...it has nothing to do with this mod.

This is not necessarily desirable. If the email is changed to an invalid address, or never validated, admins might want to be alerted to that change too.

It eliminates alerts being sent when users make mistakes filling out the form. An alert is only sent when the user actually makes a successful change of email address, whether the email address is valid or not.
