Thanks, S - I'll put my tech on to this.
Please advise what happens if I delete a user and he re-registers with identical username/email address - will this work?
Please advise why that isn't a PunBB message and how it may be appearring.
Two users are unable to log in: other messages include incorrect password and incorrect username.
Is there a way of seeing what password is held and the messages issued?
BTW, I am the "user" but I have a tech (top class guy; I am ex I.T. btw) and he cannot fathom why these two cannot log in.
I have a growing forum but 3 users cannot log in even if I change password.
They report similar messages - username too similar to existing, password too similar to existing username - none is true.
OK - will just highlighting and changing a username work?
Great! How, though - we didn't think Admins could change usersnames.
Of course, I had done that. Just couldn't read the email address as too faint!
Is there any way to change a username (I know admin can change theirs)?
I need to have username as a "real name" i.e., not a pseudonym - frankly, that can't be done: I'll just ban anyone not using a pseudonym.
But I do need to make email addresses mandatory at registration, otherwise I have no way of talking to a user other than by the forum.
Hope you can help.
I apologise if this has been asked before.
I need to force users to use real names (yes, I know we'll get a zillion John Smiths but I am dealing with idiots) and wonder if it is possible to make email adresses mandatory on registering.
