    Not really, because if you set it up to only limit access if the profile has the age filled in and if it is 18 or higher, members can just goto the profile and set it to 18 or higher and let them in. I am sure minors won't mind cheating.

    If you want 18+ to register on your site you can turn on COPPA

        You're going to have to request a code modification at vBulletin.org

        I remember some time ago (Before vB3 was available) someone creating a hack that fits your needs for vB2, but there were many problems with it. Lets hope those problems don't arise again if it's made for vB3, eh?

            You should try over at vbulletin.org mate, some good hacks there.

            Also I have seen a few people looking for some sort of age verification. But the only way really to get this is to put in credit card details.

            Alot of people wont wanna do that.

            Best way would mabye make it so they have to enter their date of birth. Never mention the porn section in public forums. and make sure your members dont.

            Then set up a promotion system so those that are 18 get access, and those that turn 18 also get access in due course.

            I am not sure how you would do it so that once they enter there DOB, at registration they couldnt change it, and also how to get members already on yer forums to make sure they enter it now.

            I find that may be a good road to go down, so long as you dont mention anything about the porn, then people should enter there proper date of birth at sign up

            Ps. can I get access

                Even with credit card details kids can still slip through, there is no real way of stopping people from lying about there age.

                But you should pop over to vbulletin.org some great hacks on there mate
