Prior To Member Confirmation - Labeled as Pending Member

Not Supported  

Alright basically this will display "Pending Member" instead of the new members username and remove the link until they have verified their email address.

On my site a while back we had a "pest" that just wouldnt go away and kept reregistering with vulgar names and such so we developed this to stop him. Long story short it finally took a lawyer to put him to sleep. Anyways... we never removed the hack because we felt it made the site look more professional and encourage more members to finish their registration process or they were never officially a member.

Anyways... take a look at the screen shots. Its a very simple hack and takes only a minute to install. 4 file edits in two files. No template edits.

On a side note... if you have a portal software that runs with your vb you may want to integrate this with your online members list that is normally displayed on those pages. I have the code for the mYvBindex portal if anyone is interested i can post it later. Also I have the same for the vbstats hack.

Please click install if you install this hack, and feedback is welcomed!

Where does it still display their handle? Anyone else having this problem? I installed on a fresh copy of vb and had no problems.

Also you MUST have the "Confirm Email Address" option ON in the vbulliten options or this hack will have no effect.

After installing, try registering a test name... without confirming the email address and let me know what happens. Make sure the above option is on.

Nice idea, though for the "Newest Member: Pending" spot, I would rather omit the pending users and only show the newest member who has been email confirmed.

That's easy. You just need to change the query for the newest member to:

Cool hack !
I am going to download this and install it on a few sites that requested me to install something like this for them. I am sure I can customize it to their liking. Keep up the good work.

Nice idea but I find that where you've implemented it isn't really the best, at least for me. I just want to display "Pending Member" in the postbit and member profile only, I don't find any need to display it elsewhere. Is there any easy way for me to use your hack to do this?

Cheers,

G

Most members are not allowed to post unless they have confirmed their email address and therefor the postbit would be useless. In the profile, yes, and i will get back to you.

I just realised I don't need a hack at all to do what I want, I just changed the User title for that particular usergroup :cheeky:

Thanks anyway
