    How to make custom email validation rule (in registration, updating email info by the user himself etc) ?

    For example, if the user inputs email with any "+", an error message will be displayed "Email should not contain any plus sign".

    And if the user inputs email with more than 3 dots, another error message will be displayed "Email should not contain more than 3 dots."

    Thank you :)

    You are referring to a mod like @ozzy47's Block Registrations With Spam Like Email Addresses which I would find quite handy, but I've not seen a similar add-on for XF yet. :confused:

    It would be convenient if the AdminCP/User Registration page at least had a regex block for valid email requirements.

    Just an update. I think i find out how to achieve it.

    I think i need to edit this file :
    Code:
    /library/XenForo/Helper/Email.php
    In this function
    Code:
    public static function isEmailValid($email)
    I have not tried, i will test it soon ;)
