Create user from external and login


i´am completly new to XenForo, moved from an not activated IPB license.

I want to use thw XenForo in an Intranet-Web with its own user-database. From other AddOn´s i copy & pasted the following code (and adapted for me). But it raises an error!

Do you have any ideas?

Thank you,

XenForo_Autoloader::getInstance()->setupAutoloader(XF_ROOT . '/library');
XenForo_Application::initialize(XF_ROOT . '/library', XF_ROOT);
XenForo_Application::set('page_start_time', TIMENOW);
$GpID  = '19760';
$visitor = XenForo_Visitor::getInstance();
$userModel = XenForo_Model::create('XenForo_Model_User');
$userExternalModel = XenForo_Model::create('XenForo_Model_UserExternal');
$UserInfo = $userExternalModel->getExternalAuthAssociation('pnet', $GpID);
if (!$UserInfo)
  $data = array(
    'username'  => 'Demo User',
    'email'    => 'Demo User@domain.tdl',
    'location'  => 'Home',
    'dob_day'  => '22',
    'dob_month'  => '08',
    'dob_year'  => '1987',
    'timezone'  => 'Europe/Amsterdam'
  $auth  = XenForo_Authentication_Abstract::create('XenForo_Authentication_NoPassword');
  $writer  = XenForo_DataWriter::create('XenForo_DataWriter_User');
  $options = XenForo_Application::get('options');
  $writer->bulkSet($options->registrationDefaults, array('ignoreInvalidFields' => true));
  $writer->set('scheme_class', $auth->getClassName());
  $writer->set('data', $auth->generate(''), 'xf_user_authenticate');
  $writer->set('user_group_id', XenForo_Model_User::$defaultRegisteredGroupId);
  $writer->set('language_id', XenForo_Visitor::getInstance()->get('language_id'));
  $user = $writer->getMergedData(); 
  $UserID = $user['user_id'];
  $userExternalModel->updateExternalAuthAssociation('pnet', $GpID, $UserID);
  XenForo_Model_Ip::log($UserID, 'user', $UserID, 'register');
} else {
  $UserID = $UserInfo['user_id'];
$session = XenForo_Application::get('session');
header("Location: index.php");

Error raised:

Warning: call_user_func_array(): First argument is expected to be a valid callback, 'XenForo_DataWriter_Helper_Language::verifyLanguageId' was given in /www/docs/kd.auto-partner.net/forum/library/XenForo/DataWriter.php on line 970
The files are all uploaded corectly. But i found out, that the error raises after modifying the file "library\XenForo\DataWriter\User.php".

I commented out the code for checking unique mails ans mailadresses, because i have to have this info not unique.

What can i do?


Well-known member
What version are you using?

Class XenForo_DataWriter_Helper_Language doesn't exist anymore (since 1.1.2 or 1.1.3)
The validation method is located now in XenForo_DataWriter_User
Is your file probably deprecated?
Yes, you´re right, have mixed files. Tried with an 1.1.2 version from an friend before purchasing my new license. This problem is solved, but get a new one:

sso.php is the with the code i posted in my 1st thread.

pnet_auth_id comes from my external login/create with "pnet" is the key for the provider. i have to add this field in the table "xf_user_profiles"
