    ForumAuth V.0.7.7D- WhiteList your server via forums!
    ForumAuth, give's you the ability to WhiteList your server via forums. You may be wandering what I mean by that, and It's simple. It checks whether a player meet's the requirements to join your server or not(By using MYSQL to connect to your forum).
    All features are still being worked on. Not completed
    Another thing, I'm no longer working on any plugin projects except for Guild Wars, CommunityBans(Sort-of), and ForumAuth. Other project's are discontinued.
    Download: Not yet available!
    Build: 0.0.1
    Dev Build: 0.7.6
    Release Date: Unknown - Still have a lot of work to, and just do not have a time range on when this project/plugin will be released. I'm hoping to get it out by friday though.

    - Fully customizable
    - Multiple whitelisting options
    - Multiple forum software support
    - Email verification(Not yet available)
    - Password generator(Optional)
    - Link Forum and Server bans
    - Password retriever(Lost password support)
    - Ability to check a player's forum information(UserID, password, post count, rank, joindate, warnings)
    - Forum banning -> Server ban -> Forum ban(Ban a player from the forum)

    Current forum software's supported:
    - MYBB
    - SMF
    - PHBB3
    Support's almost every server software that uses MD5 encryption.

    Password Retriever:
    This password retrieving system is rather simple. You create a security word, first by typing in: /fa set sw <SecurityWord>. After that we now have a way to retrieve are account if it get's hacked, or you forget your password or whatever, but that's not all. Now to recover your login password, you'd just have to type /fa recover <sw/ID> <ID/word>

    Hey there i am just wondering how the plugin is going since i been searching for a long time for something like this and i would love to test it if possibly. Thanks for your hard word. Btw how does this handle phpbb3 since they stopped using md5 hashed passwords since phpbb3 came out.
