In progress Changing subscribers age limit from 13 to 18.

Post by Spyros Kontis on June 1st 2012, 4:11 pm

Hello,

1) When someone registers in my forum, there appears a message asking to confirm that
he is at least 13 years old. I want to change that to 18. How it can be done?

2) At the same time it shows him a message with default forum rules. How can I put
my own ?

3) Off topic, I know.
I have a problem with the search service.
The forum language is in greek.
When you put a keyword, it will show you only the topics that contain the keyword in the
title. If the keyword is in the body of the topic, it will say that it found no topics matching the query.
How do I solve this ?

Many thanks for your help !

3. Search only goes by keywords in topic titles.

1. Administration Panel > Users & Groups > Users > Users Options
Scroll down to the bottom until you see the Birthday section.

2. Administration Panel > General > Rules & FAQ > Additional Rules

I did it but still remains 13.
I went to "Birthdays - Allow birthday management (selected yes) - Maximum user age : 99 -
Minimum user age : 18"

Still, when someone wants to register, the button sais: " I agree with the above terms and I am over 13 years old."

So what went wrong?

I don't think you can change that about the age. Read these following threads.

http://help.forumotion.com/t94086-coppa-registration
http://help.forumotion.com/t75181-coppa-requirements-under-13s-age-restriction


So it doesn't matter, if its above 13. Since all above 18's are above 13's.

What you want to change is through template.(protypa sta ellinika)
changing the text that you do enrollment

Well, it matters if I don`t want high school subscribers asking questions...
Anyway, if it is not possible, what to do...

petros_7:
Spyros Kontis has a phpBB3 forum which does not have template editing.
