    Version: 1.5

    I'm no longer developing this plugin. If you would like to continue it the source code is in the JAR file. However, I think it needs to be started from scratch.

    What is ForumAcc?
    ForumAcc allows you to force any users that sign up to your forums to activate their account from your Minecraft server. Perfect for stopping spam!

    ForumAcc does NOT affect server ranks. If provides a better activation process for Minecraft server related forums (instead of Email or Admin activation)

    How to install

    1. Go to your forums, log in as an Administrator and go to the Administration Control Panel
    2. Under "General" > "Board Configuration" click "User Registration Settings"
    3. Set it to "By Admin"
    1. Go to your forums and log in as an Administrator and go to the Admin-CP
    2. Click on "Configuration" -> "User Registration and Profile Options"
    3. Change "Registration Method" to "Administrator Activation"
    1. Download plugin and put into /plugins
    2. Start server. The plugin will create /ForumAcc/config.yml in /plugins and disable itself
    3. Edit the file appropriately. HELP BELOW
    4. Reload Server. DONE

    #forumAcc will test DB connection at startup
        Table_Prefix: phpbb_
        Port: '3306' // You do not need to change this if it uses the default port
        Database: phpBB
        Password: password
        Username: root
        URL: localhost
        Type: phpbb  // Only phpbb or mybb are supported
        URL: http://forum.myserver.com
        Custom_Profile_FieldID: '' // Optional. Specifies the field id for the minecraft username in your forum. See "Custom Profile Field ID Help"
    Custom Profile Field ID Help
    Using a custom profile field allows users to choose a username other than their Minecraft username as their forum username. Here is how to find the Custom_Profile_FieldID for the config.

    very nice that you confirm this plugin... It would be cool, if you can update it for the newest Minecraft Version 1.2.5

    Long time no see THEK. You will notice that this thread has now been placed into the Inactive Plugin subforum.
    If you wish to revive this plugin, please ensure that you update and test compatibility with the latest recommended Bukkit build before reporting your original post, asking for it to be moved back to the release forum.

    Thanks for your time.
