  • Require Referral to Register?

    I have a forum running that I want to require membership to be by invitation only, thus requiring a referral ID to be entered at registration.

    I know I could add a custom profile field to do this but was wondering if there is a way to utilize the referral system to accomplish this. I'm not finding where that is to make it a required field.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Lana

    There isn't a way of making the referral field required without modifying the source code. Even adding it as a required profile field would not validate it as being a genuine referrer either

      Well, that's not what I wanted to hear. lol

      So do I need to go over to vb.org and ask how to modify the code to get this to work the way I need?

          Has anyone found a way to require the referral field yet? I have searched vb.org and the two posts they had there didn't work. I've been wanting this since 2.x
