Not sure where this question belongs. I am using YABB 2.5 have been a user for many years and appreciate all the updates and security measures. Like many users, I have to go through the process of looking at each potential members request to join my forum. The registration log is great but is it possible to edit its format so that the "reason for joining" shows up in the reg log (vs. having to click on every entry to validate or deny membership?). It would make things much faster is I could add that column to the reg log. Thanks.

Registration logs - reason for joining

That would be helpful to have the reason for joining to show up in the registration logs. I'll 2nd Gerry720's request even though I no longer need this in our forum.

Meanwhile, admins can engage the anti-spam measures that YaBB has so that open registration without approvals can be allowed.

Admins can even enable guest posting with ggn's CAPTCHA hack that will be part of YaBB 2.5.4 (see an example of this at the bottom of this page of Dandello's test forum).

Here's a quick version of RegistrationLog.pl with the reason in the log (This is based on the 2.5.2 version. Remember to backup your old copy of RegsitrationLog.pl before using this.

Hi there, I downloaded the zip file and replaced the RegistrationLog.pl with the new file. The Reg log now includes a column for "reasons" but there is no info in it. Have I done something wrong? All the other columns are filled with info so I assume it is not a permissions issue. Help. Thanks. Gerry

P.S. Since the overwhelming number of reg entries are to be deleted, it would be helpful to be able to look at the reg log, approve those few that are real and then have an option to delete all the rest...just a thought.

It's probably not you. Give me a bit to look at the file and see why it's not  reading the reason.

Edited:
The registration reason only shows up it they've been validated. (If they don't validate within the time limit, they're gone anyway and cleaning the Reglog will take care of them. (Of course, my test is on a 2.5.2 install but it should work for a 2.5ae install as well.)

Hi, the reasons are showing up when I click on the link to view the profile and decide, they are just not populating the column in the new reg template you created.

You're on 2.5AE or 2.5.2?

Just another note, I finally approved a member and the reason suddenly appeared in the column, it was not there before I approved them and does not appear when I deny them membership. Hope that helps. Gerry

try this version of the RegistrationLog.pl
It's off 2.5AE rather than 2.5.2.

Just an update...only about half of the reasons are showing up. At first I thought it was just the ones that had validated, but about half of them are showing no reason until I click on the profile button and have to look at them manually. It is better than it was, but still requires a lot of time to weed out the bad requests for membership. Thanks, Gerry
