Restrict usernames to alphanumeric and underscore

vB Version: 3.5.3 Rating: (2 votes - 4.50 average) Installs: 104
Released: 01 Feb 2006 Last Update: 27 Feb 2008 Downloads: 225
Not Supported Uses Plugins Re-usable Code Translations  

This is a vB 3.5.x port of the same mini mod.
( http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=73559 )

What is this Plugin about?

Are you tired of seeing in your forums usernames like these?:
1.- The Super Boy (spaces)
2.- my_new_name (underscore abuse)
3.- imandbar (international characters)

Well, with this simple addon you can prevent that from happening from now on (it can't correct already spoiled usernames). When a user tries to register using one of those chars, a nice error message makes sure the user picks another "normal" name.

Installation instructions
1.- Download the attached .xml
2.- Go to Admin Control Panel => Plugin System => Manage Products => Add/Import Product => and browse for the the location where you downloaded the .xml
3.- Hit Import
4.- To configure it (not really needed, but it is there), go to Vbulletin Forum Options => Restrict Usernames on registration

By default this addon prevents spaces and any char other than numbers and (english) letters while allowing underscore.

**
Fixed to work with 3.6.8 and 3.7

Phrase not Found . . .

I will throw my hat in here as well. Is there a fix? The error is coming about due to PHRASETYPEID which has been removed in versions 3.6.x. Everything else works well except for the error message. Someone may know enough about SQL to make the plugin point to the correct phrase. I am only a beginner but I wouldn't think it would be too difficult.

I upgraded to 3.7 and it seems to be working, but I don't know if it would work on a brand new board. I would have to check and make the necessary corrections.

Great! I'm just trying to go through all of my currently installed mods and see if they will work with 3.7 when we update.

The updated version works with both 3.6.8 and 3.7
I dont have 3.5 version or lower anymore so I cant guarantee if it works with those.

In fact it is already, see "Username Regular Expression" under "User Registration Options". Therefore uninstalled.
