^ replace both files from MyBB source files pack. And also update the code in templates
upgrading guidance Wrote:Visit your Admin Control Panel, then go to Templates & Style > Templates > Find Updated Templates.
This will show you a list of all the templates that have changed during the upgrade.

You can either revert these templates to their default - meaning all the changes you've made to it will be removed - or you can see a Diff Report which will show you exactly what's changed. If you have a custom theme installed, it is probably best that you look at the Diff Report and apply the changes you need.
after uploading those files
still shows the same thing

i have a test forum and there i m running mybb 1.8.5 and there the register is fine
but both sites i run with 1.8.7 it does not let it... i replaced the files but still the error is same
the register error started when i upgraded to 1.8.6 and still can't find the solution.
have you also updated the templates ?
i never did that
i think i did once after 1.6 to 1.8
and it messed my site so after that i never touched those

does any one know how to fix this error
i still wonder how spammers register on the site but i can't register new ids
(not from admin cp from regular way register like all members do).

i found the error in member_register code

when deleting this lines
the error is fixed
now i wonder what those lines do

	remote: {
					url: "xmlhttp.php?action=username_availability",
					type: "post",
					dataType: "json",
						my_post_key: my_post_key

when it is added, the field shows in red like nothing was typed but when i delete those, it does let user register
can any one tell me what those lines do and if those are the issue creator how do i fix it without deleting them?
maybe something in the settings?
please guide.
