    It is a very good idea but it would put some people off joining because they need to enter their mobile number.
    I always SKIP or leave a site if it askes me for my mobile number even on Flickr and Google and Yahoo I SKIP THIS STEP because as soon as you give your mobile number out you start getting bombarded with spam calls and texts it has happened to me many times just for adding my mobile number for verification or "to help keep your account safe" as they call it nowadays, and this puts people off from joining.

    Not mocking your mod or anything but just adding my 2 cent thanks for the hard work

    I know what you say nay27uk and am aware for that.
    it depends upon a county I think, coz we have a National Do Not Disturb Registry called DND just register your mobile no. and you will have no telecallers at all and all mobile service provider here strictly follows it check this running by Govt. telecom department Govt.
    every ecoomerce site oeven banking site asking mobile no. Its like a mandatory

    Yeah we have the same in the UK called the Opt Out Register or better known as the TPS (Telephone Preference Service) but my home and mobile still get bombarded even though I am registered and it is illegal for a company to call any number before checking the TPS Database

    you can take legal action on them.
    Here in India we have 2 types of text messages no matter whether its a company or a govt. body can send transactional text and a promotional text. transactional text can be isuued(send) anytime and promotional text can issed only 9am to 9pm. promotinal text are cheaper than transactional text. Here text or even a call service provider ask to the sender like mywebidsite.com or even a google.com which one of you want to opt in, if its a promotional one they dont need to provide any documents like a legal affidevit or declaration, while if they want to opt in on transactional one they need to do all legal procedures including purpose of sending text or call.
    Here all the text or calls first automatically go to the registry if it is censored its just filters, thats how it works

    Having more problems at step 6 where it says;
    1. edit in language/en/messages.inc.php
    2. in yoursite/themes/default/register.tpl
      add this on the top
    That's stating 2 different files to edit and not stating what needs to be changed within either of them...help pls :-/

    step 6 is only for register.tpl. You dont need to change anything here you need to add stuff following in step 6

    Ok well I tried following the additional steps and now the site crashes with the following error;

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare get_lang_img() (previously declared in /home/u407062234/public_html/includes/messages.inc.php:69) in /home/u407062234/public_html/language/EN/messages.inc.php on line 73

    Hugely worried now since I have uploaded the original files and as such, expected the website to work as it did before I made the instructed changes... :-/ HELP

    Take a look at my screenshot - all that appears to be on line 73 is closing brackets...

    That seems to be index.php line 73. Take a look in /languages/EN/messages.inc.php

    looks more like includes/messages.inc.php. That may be the problem. Could have overwritten the correct file. The languages/EN one has a list of words. No code like that.
