Gmail Registration Fixer
Mod Version: 1.01, by GameDude (Member) GameDude is offline
Developer Last Online: Jan 2015 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (3 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 41
Released: 08 Jul 2009 Last Update: 09 Jul 2009 Downloads: 166
Not Supported Uses Plugins Re-usable Code Translations  

What this Modification does:
If you require unique email addresses, people can still use a Gmail account to register multiple times by placing .'s in the address or by using the @googlemail.com extension. vBulletin will see these as unique emails; however, they will go to the same email. This modification fixes that problem.

Installation:
Just import the product in your Admin CP.

Notes:
If you wish to customize the error message, the phrase is called "gmail_same_email" in the Phrase Manager. You must have the "Require Unique Email Addresses" option enabled for this modification to work.

Updates:
Version 1.01
- Modification now fixes the [email protected] problem.

Doesn't seem to work properly to me. While it indeed blocks attempts to register using variations of the gmail account address, it also seems to randomly block gmail accounts which are certainly not registered in the forum as if they are already there. It doesn't happen with all of them and I can't see a pattern because it has happened with simple and complex addresses.

Any ideas? Thanks.

I installed and tested this addon but it is only blocking the users trying to use googlemail.com/gmail.com variant. It is not blocking registrations when users are using "." in the email address.

Quite unfortunate.

Unlike back when this Mod was made, today it's really useless to even bother requiring a valid email. Because the autospam programs have defeated pretty much all human verification on the most popular email services. And they get the verification code anyway, directly from your site on pageload after they "click" the submission.. (XRumer)

If you want to stop autospam I would recommend one of the registration time check mods. They're very effective.

I don't even use the email verification anymore, haven't for a little over a year. It's simply obsolete, now.

This mod has two author's mistakes...

First: Search
$email = str_replace(".", "", substr($vbulletin->GPC['email'], 0, (strlen($vbulletin->GPC['email'])) - (strpos($vbulletin->GPC['email'], "@"))));
Replace it with
$email = str_replace(".", "", substr($vbulletin->GPC['email'], 0, (strpos($vbulletin->GPC['email'], "@"))));

Second: authors mistake - is metodological.... If we have email '[email protected]' in our user database, and we register new email '[email protected]' - we have successfull registration...

Why?
Because author search (in user database) email '[email protected]' (without dots)
