Verified Members


by Foxer

Compatibility : from 4.5


Lots of phpFox users requested a feature that could allow them to add Verified badge to some community users on user profiles and near usernames everywhere on your site, just like on Twitter or Facebook. If you're also looking for such a feature, this app is exactly what you need!

Also you can manage text under verified member's popup that appears when someone hovers pointer under verified icon.

Members will be able to submit verification requests from their Edit Profile / About Me page. Verification ID will be required and qualification document will be optional. As soon as user submits verification request it will appear in AdminCP so Admin can accept or reject it.

*Note: this app requires Verified Members add-on to be installed (it will be unlocked after Verified Members app is purchased). Kindly check the add-on here:

How to make user verified:

  • go to "VerifiedMembers" app in your AdminCP;
  • enable VerifiedMembers by switching the setting under Settings menu;
  • make sure that Verified Members add-on is installed (you can find installation link above);
  • find user you want to make verified;
  • click gray expand icon on the left of user's name and click "Verify";
  • go to this user's profile and see verified icon near user's name on his profile.

Users can also verify each other (if admin allows it in settings). Admin will be able to set amount of verification comments needed to make member verified. There will be a separate page on profile where users will be able to see verification comments for specific member.

Required version: 4.3.2 b5 or higher
