Working on an AJAX validation registration form and other updates....
Its been a few... caugh... months since my last post, but here is an update on a few things that I have been working on. Of course my BF2Online.com site is one site that I have going right now that has been an evolving creation since its initial inception. The main improvement that I have made to this site is the user info page. If you haven't ever looked at my user info on that site, please give it a go, its a HEAVILY modified version of the userinfo page along with quite a few other custom modifications to the core files to get it to work the way it does. I incorporated flash graphs for statistics tracking, and a custom template file that handles all of the front end stuff. I also added a custom buddy tracker, so that you can track friends that are members on the site. There are many many features that were created for this particular function of the site.
Here is a small preview of the userinfo section,
but you can see it in action here
The newest portion of the site that I am currently working on is the registration form. I found a nice little AJAX validation script and wanted to incorporate it into the registration section of my site.
Here is what I came up with:
The register page is tied directly to the XOOPS database, and it checks the xoops_user table to see if the username is taken or not. I am trying to get it to where it uses the same name, email and password checking as the original registration page does that way it is as secure as the original page. Right now it is more of pre-check than anything. After I am done, it will prevent mistakes from happening.
Let me know what you guys think.
