User registration validation

Post by bamse » Sat Jan 18, 2014 12:16 pm

It seems that the javascript validation (in global.js->validateUserForm() ) is more strict requiring certain minimum lengths of strings than the php validation (in class/User.php->__set() and class/Action/User.php->verifyUserParameters() ).

So if I turn off javascript in the browser I could register with less than the minimum requirements. Also in this case, the error messages from php validation would not show (since they require javascript).

Potentially, yes, but most areas of the site will not work without javascript anyway...

You are correct though - especially for user registration, to stop spammers, you are better to ensure that the global.js validation matches the PHP validation.

This is something that you should report to enuuk.
