THIS HACK WILL NOT WORK IN VB 2.2.0 AND UP! DO NOT ATTEMPT TO INSTALL IT!
Go to http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...threadid=33068 for the appropriate hack



This is something I've wanted to do for a long time, and since someone mentioned it in the Suggestions forum, I figured I'd write the hack

Purpose: When a new user regsiters, he is e-mailed a password generated randomly. He will not be able to log in until he receives this e-mail and uses that password. (the same happens if an existing user changes his e-mail address).

After installing this hack, you will have three options essentially:

1) Don't verify the e-mail is valid.
In this case the user selects his own password and nothing is sent to him.

2) Verify the e-mail is valid by sending an activation code
This is how vBulletin works now: a user selects his own password during registration, and the BB Mailer sends him an activation code / link that he needs to use before he's able to post

3) Verify the e-mail is valid by sending a random password
In this case the user DOES NOT select a password but instead he receives a randomly generated password by e-mail. He will not be able to log in / post until he receives and uses this password.


The installation includes:

1) Running a script that updates your database (adds an option "Send New Users Random Password?" with default "NO" -- to preserve your currect state).

2) Editing three scripts (register.php, member.php, admin/functions.php)

3) Editing two templates (registeradult, registercoppa) and adding three new templates (small ones).


If you have questions, I'm here

Cheers,

Bira

yes, Essam, if the user changes his e-mail, it will automatically generate his a new password, e-mail it to him and log him out so he won't be able to log in until he uses this new password.

Essam, they can still activate themselves. That system did not get impaired in any way.

bokhalifa, this is the template email_lostpw -- it's the same template that people get when they lost their password and request for it.

mmm,,
Is there a way to send all the unactivated members a new password? instead of still requiring them to activate themselves.

Essam, go to the Control Panel -> Usergroups. Click in 'list users' next to Users Awaiting Email Confirmation. For each user you can:

1) change his usergroup to 'registered'
2) click on 'send password'

If you have more than a dozen or so, let me know and I'll write you a quick script to run to do that in a batch.

More than a dozen?!
I have 1319 member awaitning confirmation

I would really appreciated if you write me that hack. The hack will send a random password right?
Cause for the normal password this can be done from "Email Users".
