Re: Remove Sid For Guests (Search Engine Optimization)

I understand the benefit of removing sid's for bots. However, I'm still not sure what the rationale would be for removing sid's for all guests. Can someone enlighten me? Are there any disadvantages?

Easymod Security

Are there any security issues with leaving Easymod on your site after you install a mod?

Forum Hacked Again

OK, this is getting old. This the second hack in a month. The first time I wasn't on the lastest version of phpbb so I upgraded and am now on the latest. I also checked for stray admin's and found none. The symptoms are the same--everything that was changed is controlled from the admin panel. Is the...

Title/Description Hack

Someone recently hacked my board and changed the titles and descriptions of all the forums to garbage (and cutsie hack messages). So I'm checking to see if anyone else has encountered this problem and if there is a fix to prevent a hack like this. Everything else on the board seems to be OK.

Admin is Fubar

I was doing a long overdue cleanup, so I went into phpMyAdmin and deleted all users who had 0 posts, except Anonymous. Now the forum itself seems to be still functioning OK. However, when I go to the administration panel something is clearly wrong. For example, on the Configuration General panel mos...

There are 3 anti spam topics running at the moment. Why not just take some time to read those through. Spam bots are really easy to stop as they do not read too well. :lol: It is the human ones that are the problem.Jim I understand your frustration with multiple anti-spam posts. However, contrary t...

As it turns out the mod I referenced above and was following is not going to include a feature like this after all. IMO that mod will not be particularly useful for combatting spam. So I'm bumping this to see if I can generate some more interest.

Do not confuse the total number of posts made by a user and the number of posts in a topic. The total number of posts made by a single user is user's own property and will not be used by this mod. The number of posts in the topic is a property of a topic, has nothing to do with a particular user an...

This is outside the scope and the "philosophy" of this MOD. The idea behind Approval Groups MOD is that the choice whether the post does or does not need approval ultimately depends on the group membership of the user and not on any other user property (IP, ICQ number, number of posts, et...

Per your response in another thread, I'm adding my request for an "approve first post" option. The idea is that if the member's first post is not spam, then he is probably OK and you don't need to approve any more posts. Thanks.

Re: I second this

I was just about to post a request for a MOD that would allow us to do just this. It would totally cut out SPAM bots on the boards. Well, they could join but their posts would never make it through. Good request, hope it gets answered. Jonny There is an "approve all posts" mod ( http://ww...

I was wondering if you would consider another variation on this mod, namely, approve first post. I already have several of the anti-spam mods installed, and I still get several spam posts a day. The idea is that if the member's first post is not spam, then he is probably OK and you don't need to app...

Approve First Post Mod?

I already have several antispam mods on my forum (show only confired signups, graphic signup verification, no url or signature at signup, registration ip address), and I'm still getting several posts a day for drugs, sex or whatever. I've seen a technique on some other boards of requiring approval f...

Delete Shadow Links

I moved a bunch of topics to new forums and left shadow links in the old forums. Now I've decided that wasn't such a good idea after all. The shadow links just clutter up everything. How can I get rid of the shadow links?

What are these guys up to?

I finally eliminated most of the spam in my forum by turning on visual verification and installing the mod to list only active members. However, every so often I get people who register and list a perfectly innocuous website and an ICQ. Here are 2 examples: http://digitalmusicdoctor.com/forum/profil...
