I have my forum restricted to people over 18 - I did that by altering the Coppa section of registration.php script by changing 13 to 18.

It may be worth noting that my register.php script has a custom name in order to deter spammers

If I allow in app registration, it seems to ignore this restriction.

It also seems they don't get to read the terms :/


Anyway, I have just signed up to BYO, and it's vitally important that minors cannot access my forum - it's not sexually explicit, just not for kids.

Any solutions, or do I have to stay with off-site registration? (and will this affect app store acceptance?)

Hello
The standard coppa setting is 13. May I ask how you manage it to be 18 on your forum right now? Are you using any other 3rd party mod?
We can explain the offsite registration to apple.

If I remember rightly I just edited the register.php script and changed 13 for 18.

I'd rather enable in-app registration and have that take care of the age-restriction rather than divert away.

Meanwhile I'm in communication with one of your guys about my app build via email so will see how things go :)
