Re: IP Address

When you look at the info for a post it will tell you if the IP that was made from matches any other users post IP. But again that doesn't mean a lot if they use the same ISP with the same pool of addresses or they work in the same building. It's not an easy thing to prove.

I'm trying to see if they log in from a different IP. is it not possible then, only when a user registers or posts or with the extension, when they view a post?
But why?
You've posted on here from 2 different IPs. That's nothing unusual or sinister. What are you trying to figure out?

Re: IP Address

Only when they post. This is a very old 'MOD' but might be adaptable as a basis for an extension by someone https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/mod/user_ip_logs Your log files to record all of that could be astronomically huge if you have a lot of users. What problem are you trying to solve? That mig...

Send him a PM.
It's not a private board though if it's being indexed and spambots are finding it.

Re: Word censoring and preventing words instead of replacing & spam help

Have you set the newly registered users group permissions on the forums as well?

Re: Ancient Website Resurrection?

It's likely to be an ancient phpBB2 site. Support for that ended years ago. There won't be a lot of point resurrecting it if none of the users are there any more.
What's the address of the site?

Re: Dis-allowe posting of pictures

You're better off stopping the spam registering in the first place. That's easy to do with a good Q&A question related to your site that you cannot 'google' the answer to. Stopping images will just hinder all of your real members from using the site properly. There is a group forum permission of...

Re: Change landing page from index.php to viewforum.php?f=1

Bookmark that forum instead of the index?

If you literally only want one single forum there is an extension to do that. Test it first on a copy of your site to make sure it does what you want as I think it's not easy to 'undo'.

Re: Word censoring and preventing words instead of replacing & spam help

You would need an extension for the first part. That could be problematic if someone innocently writes one of the words. It sounds like your recaptcha isn't being very effective. Spam is easy to stop with the right Q&A. It needs to be something you can't search for and uses a bit of logic to ans...

Re: Member Names Color

It comes from the colour of their default group.

So if they're a normal member, change the colour of the registered users group.

Yep it's a 3.0 style so it won't work. You need to ask for a refund.

Re: NEW MEMBERS RECEIVING ERROR MESSAGE

Just re-upload the /includes folder then.

With any update you need to upload new files. You connect by FTP or through your cpanel file manager and you drag files and folders from your computer side to the server side. It's no different to moving a file from one folder to another on your own computer.

Re: NEW MEMBERS RECEIVING ERROR MESSAGE

If you have no hard coded edits, it's just a case of uploading all new files (except config.php) and running the database update.
