I am using YaBB 2.5 AE.Recently I've had a few empty profiles in the registration log. They usually show something in the Pre-registered UserID column of Registration Log, but after clicking "View Profile and Decide" there is only a single character in the Registration User ID field and all others are empty. These profiles cannot be deleted - I have to use FTP to delete the PRE file.I believe this is linked to the character length of the User ID - if the UserID contains 3 letters or more, it appears to work fine. Numeric-only UserIDs also trigger this "empty profile" behaviour.I've found a couple of references to numeric-only UserID problems in this support forum, but they don't appear to have been resolved.

sorry i cant help with this but one of the main team will

Is there any way I can specify minimum length UserID on the registration page?

If not, I'd like to edit the text to advise users how to choose a UserID. I haven't yet been able to find where this text is stored.

this is in cgi-bin/yabb2/Languages/English/Register.lng in here find
Code
Select All
'520' => 'Used only for identification and login purposes.<br />You can use special characters below or after logging in<br />by changing your displayed name in your profile.',
 



hope this helps  Smiley
