I am using Joomla & Community Builder (CB) for a employee "members only" website. Each employee has a preexisting employee id numbers. When an employee registers to be a member on the site (via CB registration form) one of the form fields would be "employee id" and would validate/verify them against the list of known id's to either allow/disallow membership.

Apparently this capability is not native to Jooma or CB. Any suggestions?

The simplest solution is to make the ID there employees id but tell all employees to add a KEY

say your id was

100090

tell all employees to register with a custom id which is

XYZ100090

Now when you look at users registered in the users list you can easily see true employees and the false non employees

Its a fix until you can code something more permanant

Now to do a more permanant there is a plugin which does custom field comparissons

Make a custom field for employee id, and add manually to your database a list of usernames users real name snad employee id.

now get the plugin(if its not avaiable) its a simple php script to compare to fields ina database and sets user to published

this will allow the system to compae the registration form with the employee id and name it expects and approve is right or not

code in the plugin to add the key for added security from other employees registerting theyre collegues

Thanks Storm,

I think my project will get more complicated because I will want it to toggle the membership approval & confirmation email based on the validation of the emplyee id field so that non-emplyees can be approved or disapproved manually.

Any suggestions on where to go to hire a reputable CB/Joomla plugin developer?

p.s. what I mean is... valid employees will get the auto-generated confirmation email that Joomla/CB is configured to send out via the normal registration process, where non members will have to be approved manually, ideally after Joomla sends an email to the administrator alerting him that a non-emplyee is requesting membership.

Was good general advice. Would have liked more specifics, like code examples, but that's easier said than done.
