i have a question:

is it possible to set every registerd user to ID1 ( i think thats standart) and that the admin has in admin menu a field where he can set choosed user to User ID 2 ?? ( maybe a button or textlink "ID UP" and "ID DOWN")

i would pay 5$ (via paypal) if someone can write this for me

User IDs are generated automatically without your action, and they can't be changed manually. Each user in the forum system should have his identical ID, else the system simply won't work.

Maybe you have something else in mind, then would be nice to see description of actually what would you like to achieve...

There is a chance, of course, but this feature is not included by default. We could develop it on a custom basis, but the price would be much higher than $5.

It depends actually on the process how do you see it yourself.

With default miniBB features we could add some new custom field to user's profile which will hold his verification status.

Also, with default miniBB we could achieve that you as admin receive all new registrations notifications on your email address and then you could click on the email link to go to the user's profile. You must be logged in as admin to see, let's say, the link saying "Verify profile". After you click that link, the verification status for the user has been changed.

On the other hand, somewhere under bb_specials.php we need to define new array of forums available only to unverified users. Let's say $unverifiedForums=array(1,2...); etc.

If an unverified user enters any other forum, which is not defined in that array, he will see a warning saying "Sorry, you must be verified to view this forum".

As you see it's quite a big and difficult process to program, so count not less than on $50.

Whatever I could say this definitely is not related to your first question about user IDs...

Contact us privately if you will be interested. It's a very custom offer and it requires a lot of work.
