 Registering at WebAPP site
 Posted on: 07/11/08 at 10:50:20


I did get lots of enquries, that people could NOT register, because of an error, whatsoever...I've also mentioned this issue on my earlier comments...I did some checks, and the same also occured to me, however, not always:
see another example:
*************
Hi G-Spot, thank you for getting back to me!
.......
Couldnt register on your website - got twice the error please contact  
site administrator!!! :-(
ON ON
AB (automaticballs)
*************
I have a hunch, that it happenes (among other reasons)if the username is longer than a certain number of letters...Pls check it...If this is true and correct, we have to notice the users for somehow, thanks.

Fixed and patched in your site, please ONLY read this (from the README.TXT file), you need NOT upload the file again but you can change the nr. from 20 to anything larger/smaller if you wish:


code:

12_characters_bug_fix_11072008.zip

Fix:
1.) Issue with old usernames larger then what is allowed (20 in this file).
2.) Allow admins to change the maximum allowed username size.
3.) Fix is also implemented in the maximum size provided in the html form field.

Instructions:
1.) Unzip
2.) Upload folder, overwriting current /cgi-bin/cgi-lib/user.pl
3.) The max size is 20 in this fix, however you can change it by editing user.pl
line 28:

#temp. fix to decide max allowed username
our $maxusername=20;
#change this number above to anything reasonable ...




12_characters_bug_fix_11072008. 12_characters_bug_fix_11072008.

You are right. There were several small bugs that we knew about... but they some how got forgotten, will must take a very close look at this forum board before we release future version to make sure that this fix and others get in.
