Difference between phpBB 3.1 S_REGISTERED_USER and S_USER_LOGGED_IN
Posted on August 2, 2015 • 1 minutes • 174 words • Suggest Changes
While working on a phpBB forum, I found this weird template var, (at first look) namely :
<!– IF S_REGISTERED_USER –> while there was just a bit higher
<!– IF S_USER_LOGGED_IN –> while it does seem a bit weird its in fact a simple check for bots, S_REGISTERED_USER will only be validated when a user is not a bot. As such the following example does make sense.
<!-- IF S_USER_LOGGED_IN --> You are logged in. #user #bot #3th_option <!-- IF S_REGISTERED_USER --> Since you are registered as a user, you are most likely a human, or a spambot who got through. <!-- ELSE --> Since you are logged, and are not a registered user, I believe you must be a known BOT; <!-- IF S_IS_BOT --> Now i'm 100% sure your a bot. <!-- ENDIF --> <!-- ENDIF --> <!-- ELSE --> You are definitely not logged in, so you are probably a user or a bot I don't know. <!-- ENDIF -->
