Registering with custom authentication?

Not open for further replies.


Hey there,

I'm one of the developers for a XenForo Fourm, and i'm pretty new to PHP and backend systems in general. Im usually a front end dev.

Essentially what I'm trying to do is when users register to our Forum, they are given a randomly generated string. They are told to enter this string in their public facing user profile 'bio' on another forum. The registration process then needs to check the content of that public profile and confirm that the string either matches or exists.

If ($bio == $string) {
//allow registration
} elseif ($bio == null) {
//told to try again
// told to put a new generated string in bio
} else {
echo "Some error Message"

Any ideas for how I could do this?
If you require support, you will need to get the license owner to add your forum user name to their account so you can post in the relevant customer forum.
