I also found same error while login as new user: After clicking "Sign Up" button its asking username, passowrd, repeat password, email and all.

if I provide any raw data in the field I am getting warning:-

Error in user data: Security verifycation failed: entered passwords didn't match!

Along with top of the header I am getting error:-

Deprecated: Function eregi() is deprecated in C:\wamp\www\forums\bb_func_checkusr.php on line 27

In bb_func_checkusr.php file line no 27 code is as below:

elseif($act=='reg' and !eregi("^[A-Za-z0-9_]{5,32}$", ${$dbUserSheme['user_password'][1]})) $correct=2;

Please provide some input on this?

Error in user data...

This is related to the miniBB internal routine checking. You must provide same passwords on registration. It's like a verification process.

Hmm, "Deprecated..." error is probably related to PHP 6. Which version of PHP are you using? I suppose it is 6.

Ok, it was planned for the next miniBB, but here is the code you may try to replace in bb_func_checkusr.php:

if ($action=='register' and (!preg_match($userRegExp,${$dbUserSheme['username'][1]}) or preg_match("#^[0-9]+$#", ${$dbUserSheme['username'][1]})) ) $correct=1;
elseif($act=='reg' and !preg_match("#^[A-Za-z0-9_]{5,32}$#i", ${$dbUserSheme['user_password'][1]})) $correct=2;
elseif($act=='upd' and ${$dbUserSheme['user_password'][1]}!='' and !preg_match("#^[A-Za-z0-9_]{5,32}$#i", ${$dbUserSheme['user_password'][1]})) $correct=2;
elseif(${$dbUserSheme['user_password'][1]}!=$passwd2) $correct=3;
elseif(!preg_match("#^[0-9a-z]+([._-][0-9a-z_]+)*_?@[0-9a-z]+([._-][0-9a-z]+)*[.][0-9a-z]{2}[0-9A-Z]?[0-9A-Z]?$#i", ${$dbUserSheme['user_email'][1]})) $correct=4;
elseif(isset($dbUserSheme['user_website']) and isset(${$dbUserSheme['user_website'][1]}) and ${$dbUserSheme['user_website'][1]}!='' and !preg_match("#^(f|ht)tp[s]?:\/\/[^<>]+$#i", ${$dbUserSheme['user_website'][1]})) $correct=6;

i.e. everywhere eregi should be replaced to preg_match with the proper extra syntax.

Please fix and let me know how it works. We will keep this upgrade for the next miniBB release.

P.S. It is fixed in miniBB 2.5.
