In progress See Information When Activating By Admin??

Post by HogwartsAcademy on March 17th 2013, 5:27 am

So I decided to make the activation by administrator because there has been lots of spamming on my forum lately.

However, I have created text zones and custom fields when a user makes a registration, and I want to see the answers that the user has put when I get the E-Mail for activating the account. This is very important because some of the questions I have asked in the fields were: "Are there any others using the same IP, who" and I need to see if yes/no so I can keep note of it. Here is an image so you can understand visually:




Then initially I would click accept/decline to activate the user. Can this be done? If so, how? It doesn't have to look exactly like this, I just need to know if there's a way to see the information that the user has answered before I activate so I know if they are legit and not spammers and took the time to answer and see if there is more than one account associated with this IP. Thanks!

You can't see a user's IP address until he posts a message on your board.

There have been ideas in the Suggestions section that say FM should record the IP address of the registration, and hopefully we may see it someday.

I would like to note to you that IP address checks aren't particularly effective, as a determined spammer can skirt it with static IPs or proxy servers.

The best security is an application form which allows you to determine the character and nature of the person.

And to answer your question about seeing the info before activation, go to:
Admin Panel > Users & Groups tab > inactive users

Click the profile and you will see all the fields.

Thanks for that, however my initial question was if you could put all of this information in the E-Mail sent to the administrator that confirms the accept/decline of the member, so we can see everything on the spot.
