User Extended

Project Status

  • These days, I have very little time to allocate to development on this project. If anyone would like to take charge of UserExtended please send me an email at
  • I don't want this project to die as I think it serves a useful purpose, but I have other, higher priority projects and I don't see the priority of this project shifting much higher any time soon.
  • Thanks

Currently on version v2.2.00

New in v2.2.00

    * Avatar picker on update page. {% partial 'account::update' %}
    * Closing, Reopening, Suspending, Deleting accounts. (Currently not accessible in the frontend by default)
    * Reset Roles and Groups back to default from the Role Manager
    * Usernames are now unique, and nicknames have been added
    * Friend states now use a bin 2^n storage pattern. This may change to use a DB table in the future.
    * Route restrictions and access tracking
    * Added more field types including, but not limited to: number, color, date, email, password, file, url
    * Now possible to add, change, remove timezones from the application
    * You can now override the relation between two users.
    * The addition of the [Beta] Module Manager. Currently changing settings for a module has no effect.
    * Improved error/success feedback system for Backend and Frontend validation

Please see the Module manager in the backend to view a detailed changelog

User Extended is not trying to be a social network plugin. We are providing functionality for more complex user functions which have use cases outside of social networks.

Websites specializing in online games, forums, blogs, news etc. can all benefit from User Extended.
