    XF 2.2 Cookies are Required issue - fixed by Varnish exclusion

    Ok, I was able to resolve the issue. I use Cloudways which has a front-end for Varnish exclusions. In that, I had an original exclusion of: https://www.mysite.com/forum/ which is a format that seems to work for other things. However, I added another exclusion: /forum/ and that seemed to fix it.

    XF 2.2 Cookies are Required issue - fixed by Varnish exclusion

    It is due to Varnish. When I disable it, everything is fine. The problem is my site really needs Varnish. So now what?

    Require a specific code on registration screen

    Is it the pinnacle of security? Nah. Is it enough to stop posts about big muscles and cheap russian clothes? I think so :D The bigger point is that there will be no need for a DB of codes, so verification is simply if X = 1234, proceed, else fail

    Require a specific code on registration screen

    Hello, I would like to add an input box on the registration screen that asks the user for their "forum code" which we will send to them once they purchase. The thinking is this should prevent nearly all spam registrations. The code would be the same for all users. Is this currently possible...

    XF 1.5 HELP! Admin area totally wiped after add-on

    Big thanks to M@rc for helping me out with this. He was able to fix the issue. @Mike, I believe the action he took was your suggestion which was to rebuild the master data. Off to make backups :D Cheers, Max

    I did try $config['enableListeners'] = false; and noticed that my other addons did get disabled, but it had no effect on accessing my admin area.
