Re: Cannot log into ACP

Does anyone have a suggestion as to how I can fix this? I'm been using phpBB for about 15 years and have never had this problem before.

Re: Cannot log into ACP

I can access my phpbb_* files via my domain cPanel. Is there a table or entry that I can clear to fix this problem?

Re: Cannot log into ACP

There is no difference between 'http' and 'https' urls. Problem still exists. When I try to go to "http://customsoftwareconsult.com/forum/adm/index.php", the page does not load (just blank, no error message). How can I change the "Cookie Secure" option? Just prior to this issue, I was unable to logo...

Cannot log into ACP

It's been several weeks since I've logged into the ACP on my phpBB forum (https://www.customsoftwareconsult.com/forum/index.php). When I tried today, I am prompted for my credentials and it appears they are accepted (I get the interstitial page that reads "You have successfully authenticated and wil...

Re: User administration Firefox 4.0

Yep ... it was the formfill history remembering the field contents. I'm not sure how my username/password got into those fields to begin with, but after deleting the entries all is well.

User administration Firefox 4.0

Something strange is occurring with the User Administration page (phpBB 3.0.8, Firefox 4.0). Whenever I pull up the page to administrate a user, the " Confirm e-mail address: " and " New password: " fields are populated with my username (not email address) and my admin password (at least I'm assumin...

OK, It was a little tricky, but I did it. The problem was that UserShield seemed partially installed, but not completely. With a little trial and error I was able to figure out what was missing from the various tpl files.

Thanks for the help! :D

Re: Using themes other than subsilver

Wo1f, As per your instructions to add UserShield to another style (Aeolus), I was relieved to read "There's only a few edits to do and that should be done in no time." Well, when I opened the installation file ("install_user_shield_v1_2_1.xml") I was horrified to discover no less than 600 lines of i...

Using themes other than subsilver

I seem to be having a problem getting User Shield to work with my current theme (Aeolus). It appears that EasyMod has configured it: http://img235.imageshack.us/img235/603/us1mq0.th.gif And the subsilver theme has all the buttons: http://img231.imageshack.us/img231/1558/us2we4.th.gif But Aeolus has ...

There's a quick test you can do (described in the second "quoted" paragraph above). After creating the new registered user and confirming that there is indeed corresponding data in the "groups" and "user_group" tables, delete the account using User Shield's delete feature in the memberlist. Let me ...

Error deleting inactive users

I installed this MOD today thinking that it was just what I needed to help control spam registrations. When I finally figured out that options to delete or activate users only seems to appear with the subsilver theme, I selected a batch of users to delete and pressed the button. I got this message: ...

I searched the MODs forum and found Spam Words. I think that might just do the trick.

Thanks for the suggestion!

"it`s intresting" spam attack

I run a support forum and usually get between one and three spam posts a day. But during the past week or so, I have have been getting a dozen or more a day with the same subject line, i.e. "it`s intresting" (note the improper spelling and the use of the grave accent mark instead of an apostrophe). ...
