Ban control not showing

Post by dishdiva »

I have been inundated with Porn spammers daily. I found out where the bulk is coming from using whois. (The spammers use the same server from Austraila, is there a way to block IPs from that server? )



Everytime I try to ban IPs I get this message and I'm not even taken to the ban page.

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 433289 bytes) in /home/boardcit/boards/dish/public_html/admin/admin_user_ban.php on line 426


Thanks for any help.

You must be on a shared host yes? Looks like you out of memory like it says. Try again in a little bit or contact your host.

Thank you. PhpBB 2.0.21. This is the version I am using. I'm reading the other threads on how to install a spam mod but I'm not tech savy and have no idea how to install it. Thanks again.

Porn spammers on our site too

Post by nutrition »

I would like to be able to have all messages cleared by administrator prior to posting, because I have not been successful in banning porn spammers, despite banning individual users, using word censors, banning whole groups of people who try to register using certain names, etc. However, I can't figure out how to do this, even with the tutorials.

Thanks,
LK
