Re: Moderate only new users...

Hi: I've searched, couldn't find anything like this. TIA for any insight. My forum requires registration and activation, but we're still getting a lot of spam posts. What I'd loved to do is toss new users into "moderation mode" whereas their first 10 posts must be moderated, so we can better determ...

Patch to display Register link more visibly

I modified two template files based on my previous post about the "Register" link not being visible enough for new users. (Had somewhat of a tough time, seems like the .tpl files have some weird embedded characters.) Changed two files that will now : 1) If your not logged in, on your home page, unde...

"Registration" Link needs to be more visible. - 2

Great style, but when someone hits the board, they can't find a "register" link for the site. It is very hard to spot, even for experienced PHPBB users. I would suggest on the main page, near or under the user id and pw at the top right add a "Not A Member? Click to Join!" that links to the registra...

I use a CAPCHA and e-mail for verification. It is different people from different ip addresses / e-mails.

I code PHP for a living, so when I get the chance, I might just make my own mod to do what I need. Just figured someone would have coded it by now.

Moderate New Users Posts

If anyone has found a mod that does this I need it bad. The big problem with my PHPBB forum is that one user that signs up, then posts spam across the forums. I would love to be able to moderate, for instance, the first 5 posts of all new users before their message would appear on the board. After t...

Moderate New Users

One of the major problems I have is spammers pop onto my board and post links to junk. A great feature would be to allow the admin to moderate new user posts for a specified time, for instance 5 days. After that, if the user is legit, then allow them to post unmoderated. I hate board spammers, and t...

Moderate X number of posts of new users?

First, I tried a search in the forums, and the results page was empty. Question is, I was wondering if it is possible to moderate, for instance, the first 20 posts of new registered users befor their messages are posted in the forum for everyone to see. I figure after 20 posts, they can be trusted, ...
