[PHP] core.ucp_register

Post by RMcGirr83 » Wed Feb 04, 2015 7:29 pm

Name: core.ucp_register
Rationale: the ability to have third party anti-spam stuff to be used (stop forum spam, akismet, etc.)
Placement: includes/ucp_register.php directly before the if (!sizeof($error)) code
Parameters: $error, $data (ip can be handled by the $user object within an extension).

That's fine, but how would this compare with supporting anti-spam plug-ins (similar to CAPTCHA plug-ins)? I've lobbied for plug-ins for years now (before phpBB 3.1 was released). Are plug-ins dead now that we have extensions?

If plug-ins are dead, should the existing ones be converted to extensions? If plug-ins are still good for some things, maybe a plug-in for anti-spam would be better than an extension.

Not sure what you mean by "plug-in".

He means the CAPTCHA plugins like Sortables and others. A plugin for things like Akismet or Stopforumspam wouldn't be appropriate however since these aren't CAPTCHAs.

@Pony: it does appear we've set aside the plug-in model in favor of extensions. Current plugins won't really work in 3.1 as far as I can tell.
