Hi All,

When I have COPPA Disabled or Enabled under Registration Settings in the AdminCP, I get an error message referencing the date of birth when trying to register.  

COPPA Enabled:

Quote:Please correct the following errors before continuing:
  • To verify your age, please enter the year you were born. You may hide your Age and Date of Birth in your profile options.

COPPA Disabled:

Quote:Please correct the following errors before continuing:
  • You need to enter a full birthday.

There are no birthday fields on the registration form, and no one can register on my forum.  I'm running MyBB 1807.  Seems like it has been an issue since I opened the forum.  No wonder no one has signed up.  Sad

Anyone have any idea what is configured improperly and or why new users attempting to register are shown these errors despite COPPA settings?
what is your forum url ?
Ah, I was using this plugin:

Date of Birth on Registration: http://mods.mybb.com/view/date-of-birth-on-registration

Needless to say it doesn't work with the latest version of MyBB. I turned it off. Registration is working again.

If you change in inc/pugins/doboreg.php
"compatibility" => "16*",

Into
"compatibility" => "18*",
Or

 "compatibility" => "*",

Then it will work.
My forum is on 1.8.7 and i am using this plugin without any problems.
