  • 2 Questions 1- Search engine / 1 - New users.

    HIya, I have two quick questions.

    I currently run a forum, and one section is fed by RSS news feeds.

    This means of course that those feeds clog up the "New Posts", is there a way to stop them appearing in new posts, I have tryed telling it now to index that section, but that didnt work.

    Second, is there anyway to force users under the age of 18 into a diffrent usergroup upon registration.

    I have certain sections of the forum that I allow swearing in and the posting rules are relaxed, so from time to time its not unheard off for nudity to be posted.

    I have a "Registered under 18" usergroup set up, but as my forum is growing quickly, I would like to force people to have to input there date of birth on registration (pretty sure I know how to do that) and have anyone under 18 forced into the under 18 usergroup.

    Is this possible ?

    Thank in advance

    Lee.

      The 18 usergroup upon registration requires a source code hack or a plugin. But in 3.5.3 you can force them to enter a dob

        1) See this thread.

        2) There is only a COPPA age restriction at 13 years of age. Implementing a automatic usergroup change at age 18 would require custom code (plugin or file hack). I recommend you post on www.vbulletin.org about this.
