Registration is a known tedious process, and I believe vBulletin makes it very hectic for the average guest to register at your forum.

I believe all ADDITIONAL INFORMATION should not be there including forum rules. These things, members can fill out later and also read the rules later. After all, the rules are very similar from forum to forum and no members read them anyways.

If you have a referral system, this modification isn't for you.
I think though, this will convert you more members than a referral system does anyways.

Go to admincp > Style Manager > Edit Templates > Register Templates > register and replace everything with the contents of the attached file.

Registration should be quick and easy! Good luck everyone


As far as I know this works on ALL VERSIONS OF 4.X and possibly earlier versions. I have been upgrading my vBulletin live sites with this modification and registration still works. I believe it also increases registrations tremendously. I've been getting anywhere between 30-60 registers a day.

Also it does include facebook connect and image verifcation ( even though the spam bots have beaten these)

Added referral section and scroll box for forum rules. Works on vB 4.1.3.



Replace the "register" template with the following:

Yes and no, the information for the birthday page is stored in a different template, register_verify_age, and not the register template. Then it submits to a form to check your age and forward if everything is OK. Could be accomplished but would take time.

I changed the code a bit and added the rules in a scroll box above the check mark. See one of my previous post in this thread.

Recaptcha.. provide your own images & questions, change them occasionally. Add isbot, (it's for vB3 but works on 4 with a few changes- look towards the end of their thread.), to your forum and you'll never get a spambot. Maybe a real person who takes the time to register and spam (people do get paid to do it), but as for bots- you'll get none.

Eliminates the usage of custom profile fields? Well that depends, if its a profile field you're requiring on the register page then yeah, but if it's just some other field then nothing should go wrong. If it is a field you're trying to require for registering- that's a simple fix. Need some help, let me know.

why you add the section "already a member"?

if you enter to register.php you are not a member... i think those 2 boxs are innecesary

For people complaining about the spambots, I used the original code daveaite provided, and still had my simple spambot protection intact.

I used

Settings > Human Verification Manager > Question and Answer

made it something simple like "What is 5 + 5?"

After implementing his Registration code, it was still intact and functional along with his fields.

So maybe this is a better alternative for others.

very simple to setup.

Along with Spam-O-Matic plugin, it's almost bulletproof. :-)

nice job , Daveaite

I'm still working on the rebuild of my website and decided to add a (test dummy) regular member account (non admin) for testing purposes, but when I go to register as a new member is says:

The following errors occurred during your registration

You have entered an invalid birthday.
There is NO field for adding a birthdate for me to put it in.

I've tried to find that requirement option to turn it off in the admin panel (Settings/Options) but can't find it anywhere.

How do I either add the birthday requirement field to the registration form OR how do I turn that requirement off?

I really want this to be a part of my rebuild of my website, so hope someone is able to help me get this sorted out.

Thanks in advance for all/any help.

Thumbs up

Thank you so much for that, Gemma. It was driving me nuts trying to find that option.

BTW, does anyone know if you can actually have the DOB requirement in the shorter registration? Or is that the whole idea of a shorter registration (to eliminate things like that)?

OMG, Thank you Gemma. You're a champion!

You're definitely going to get a mention when I do the writeup of all the mods etc, I used to complete my site rebuild (once it's completed) and I'll be publishing it on my site for all to see.
