I'm not so sure you have access to back up anything with them and you probably can't delete the board either. If you disable it they often delete them after 90 days of inactivity.
KevC thanks so much for the advice b/c I've been struggling with this. I will go that route instead.

Re: Random Users Allowed to Register??

There's a similar episode here https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=556&t=2431476 Mick thank you for that reference, that's been extremely helpful. I'm just going to back-up manually and delete at this point. Freeforums is unbelievable (and tapatalk is so much worse >__O). Thank you so m...

Re: Random Users Allowed to Register??

Freeforums takes the base files of phpBB and changes them to suit what they need to host free sites. We have no idea what they change. They support their own forums, not us. If this was happening on a site made with our files downloaded from here we can work out what the issue is but we can't do th...

Re: Random Users Allowed to Register??

phpBB has not sold, runs no boards and has nothing to do with TapaTalk. Many free forums appear to be implementing TapaTalk. When you have a free forum, you get what you pay for. If they're not even connected in any way, how does that just happen? There has to be some kind of deal or move-over goin...

Re: Random Users Allowed to Register??

You need to seek support from the people who make your forum. That's not us. If it was freeforums it doesn't use our files. I guess it's been taken over by tapatalk so I assume they now have a support forum. But I've never made it anywhere else but freeforums -- it has been freeforums for years and...

Re: Random Users Allowed to Register??

What's 'the new tapatalk format' mean? It's not unusual for account to register and sit dormant for a long time before activation. If the activation format is changed in the mean time that's not applied to existing accounts. If you have tapatalk running, check you don't have account creation/activa...

Re: Random Users Allowed to Register??

Look at the time the user in question joined in April, then go to that time in the Admin log to see if there's any log of the activation. Your site might be fine now, it may well have had different settings in April. That's the weird thing, I don't see any record of an activation. Just her registra...

Random Users Allowed to Register??

So I come back to my forum today and it's taken over by this new tapatalk format. Even though it's set to totally private and admin-approval only, somehow a random user was able to join and gain access to our forums without my consent. What's stranger is the last time I was online, there was no reco...
