I don't have to try. Other "guests" like Doopsylob are already posting ads for Canadian Pharmacy in French and Greek and English.Have you tried to use a guest account (different browser or computer) & actually try to make a post to any of the forums?
I just looked. Permissions Tab/Groups' forum permissionsWhen you go back to check the permissions, are they set on read only for the guest group or have they 'reverted' back to no role?
I don't know how to determine that. Before all this happened (guests being able to post) I tinkered a bit with Anonymous. Can you tell me how to fix this? It might be the problem.Is the anonymous account in the guest group?
Code: Select all
INSERT INTO phpbb_users (user_id, user_type, group_id, username, username_clean, user_regdate, user_password, user_email, user_lang, user_style, user_rank, user_colour, user_posts, user_permissions, user_ip, user_birthday, user_lastpage, user_last_confirm_key, user_post_sortby_type, user_post_sortby_dir, user_topic_sortby_type, user_topic_sortby_dir, user_avatar, user_sig, user_sig_bbcode_uid, user_from, user_icq, user_aim, user_yim, user_msnm, user_jabber, user_website, user_occ, user_interests, user_actkey, user_newpasswd, user_allow_massemail) VALUES (1, 2, 1, 'Anonymous', 'anonymous', 0, '', '', 'en', 1, 0, '', 0, '', '', '', '', '', 't', 'a', 't', 'd', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', 0);
For reference, this is the account used by everyone who is not logged in.tommyvin711 wrote: I tinkered a bit with Anonymous
Under Approved members is - Anonymous, Yes, Wed, Nov 24, 2010ACP, General, manage groups, Guests group, Members. If Anonymous is not a member, type that username in the area for adding users and Submit.
On the General tab, Manage users, I found no dropdown menu, so I don't know if Anonymous is a member of another group. Is there another way to find this out?Then, in Manage users, Groups (from the dropdown, upper right) make sure he is not a member of any other group. If he is, delete him from those groups.
I don't know if I have deleted the user entirely. Shall I still have my hosting service run the SQL?If you have deleted the user entirely, run this SQL ( Executing SQL Queries in phpMyAdmin KB ):
If you've changed any advanced permissions away from a preset role it will reset it back to the original setup.tommyvin711 wrote:What's the difference between Apply all permissions and Reset.
The guest anonymous account was also in the admin group.Kevin Clark wrote:Is the anonymous account in the guest group? It should be in that group only.
