Stop guests using names
« on: June 10, 2006, 01:20:29 am »

Hello, I allow guests to submit comments, but is there any way I can ban the use of certain guest names at all? I know I can ban users once signed up but can I stop guests?

Thanks

You can set a prefix for guest postings in Coppermine's config to avoid guests posing a registered users.

I know, but I don't allow people to sign up, because I have no need for them to, so as a result all comments are posted by guests. However I would like to restrict some names they use, not just the guest prefix, but the whole name...

OK, this is a bit more complicated: first, you'll have to come up with some JavaScript code that needs to reside in your custom theme - it should check the comment form onsubmit. Second, you'll have to add a check into db_input.php that only allows the query to be run if the name is OK.

You'll have to edit themes/yourtheme/theme.php, find
Code: [Select]
// HTML template for the display of comments
$template_image_comments = <<<EOT
<table align="center" width="{WIDTH}" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0" class="maintable">

        <tr>
                <td>
                        <table width="100%" cellpadding="0px" cellspacing="0px">

                </td>
        </tr>

EOT;
and edit accordingly (if this section doesn't exist in your custom theme, paste the above stuff in right before ?>).

The second modification should be applied before
Code: [Select]
$insert = cpg_db_query("INSERT INTO {$CONFIG['TABLE_COMMENTS']} (pid, msg_author, msg_body, msg_date, author_md5_id, author_id, msg_raw_ip, msg_hdr_ip) VALUES ('$pid', '{$CONFIG['comments_anon_pfx']}$msg_author', '$msg_body', NOW(), '{$USER['ID']}', '0', '$raw_ip', '$hdr_ip')");in db_input.php

As far as I remember, something similar has been asked before and a more detailed answer has been given.
