Age based premissions for registering and viewing forums
Mod Version: 1.00, by Xoligy (Member) Xoligy is offline
Developer Last Online: Mar 2013 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.6.4 Rating: (4 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 123
Released: 10 Jan 2007 Last Update: 10 Jan 2007 Downloads: 487
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Is in Beta Stage  

This is based on this 3.5 plug-in. Although it uses the same hook locations and similar phrases, I ended up recoding it so none of the original code is used. To install simply download and install the XML file via the Plugin & Product manager. You can then alter the registration requirements via the vBulletin Settings option and the minimum age to view a specific forum by editing it using the forum manager - again it should appear near the bottom.

New features:
  • Updated for vBulletin 3.6.4 (should work on 3.6.x)
  • More accurate (the previous only checked month and year).

Original features:
  • Specify minimum age required to register.
  • Limit access to forums based on age.

Disclaimer:
Because users can lie about their age, this many not fulfil the legal requirements for adult content. I accept no responsibility for how this is used.

You're free to do what you like with this code, although credit is appreciated, it's not required.

I like it, but there seems to be a loophole.

If you simply remove your birth year it will allow you access to the forum you've set the age limit on.

I have a question, when a user signs up they must input their age. That is the first thing they have to do. Can the hack not be based on the age they enter there, because that way they won't lie because they won't know that they have to be a certain age to view a certain forum (unless its not hidden and they have tried to enter).

It's a pain having to get them to put in their birthday in their fields and even then they arn't usually telling the truth. Let me know please

This is not that great of a hack. After they see the minimum age they need to be, they can easily go back and make their age older and register again in 10 seconds and become a member of the community.

Sincerely,

Is there a way to lock out the birthday after they have registered? So that they cant change it?

I have been looking for this and it works great for vB 3.6.8. Guests and anyone under 18 can not even see if an adult section is around, while older than 18s and registered can.

I installed it today and I checked it.
It's working ok, but the question of age appears again on the main registration fields area!!

This is a problem!

How can it be fixed???

This works with VB 3.7.1 however once you set an age for the forums in the forum manager you will notice the fourm may have dissapeared regardless of your age or permissions.

You will need to do these things to correct the issue if it happens:

1: In the maintanence section click update counters, and then update usernames

2: in the maintanence section click update counters, and then fix broken user profiles

It works fine for me after I did both of those things, not sure exactly which one did it but I think it as fix broken user profiles.

Hope this helps anyone having problems

*clicks install*
