Hooking/extending ucp register

Post by RMcGirr83 »

Is it currently possible to hook/extend the ucp_register class? For example, if someone wanted to inject some stopforumspam code. Took a look at it but not exactly sure as ucp_register seems to only have one function. Please remember, "Damn it Jim, I'm an accountant not a programmer".

TIA :)

Hmm.. maybe add some events to it? :)

Or try use core.user_add_modify_data

I am not looking to inject stuff in to the database. I am looking to inject stuff into the code when a user first registers....like an antispam thing. Similar could be asked about posting and/or includes/functions_posting.php.

What about putting this code in session.php (I think that's the name)? That way you can handle IP addresses for guests, too. Or, if phpBB would support plug-ins for blacklists like they do for CAPTCHAs, you could easily use Stop Forum Spam there.

And, if anybody is interested, here's some code for implementing Stop Forum Spam.

So I guess with no comment from a dev the answer would be no...which makes sense as I don't see any events with the ucp_register file nor within memberlist file (other than to add stuff to the display) to use in the contactadmin form.
