Implementing an age limit?

Solved Implementing an age limit?

Post by Willowstorm on October 12th 2014, 6:25 am

I know there's an option in the administration panel to put an age limit, but is there any way to make it so that new users have to offer their birthday in order to join? We've been having trouble with younger users recently and would like to put an age limit in.

Hello Willowstorm,

There isn't a surefire way to prevent younger users from joining your forum, but you can force them to fill out their birthday at registration.

Go to Administration Panel > Users and Groups > Profiles > Edit Edit Birthday

Tick 'Necessarily filled' and save. This should force the field at registration.
