    XF 2.2 BBcode bar missing and Edit button not working

    This plugin was quite useful and allowed formatting of years of posts in a spoiler and code tag. See this post, for example. Any ideas how to resolve hundreds of misformatted posts now that I've had to disable this plugin? Thanks.

    Home Screen Installation

    Does XF add this automatically? I'm using XF 2.1 and don't see this popup on my forum. How can I enable it? Thanks.

    XF 2.1 Server error log: Swift_TransportException: Email to [email] failed: Failed to authenticate on SMTP server with username "xxxxxx"

    Thanks for the feedback guys. Good call, I'll generate a new user and see if that solves it.

    XF 2.1 Server error log: Swift_TransportException: Email to [email] failed: Failed to authenticate on SMTP server with username "xxxxxx"

    Thanks for the reply. Here is the full message example below. This is on AWS SES and has worked great, but this error happens at least 1-5 times a day. It isn't the same email each day, it varies and is a range of different emails - yesterday there were like 10 from random emails. Any...

    XF 2.0 Spamming the contact us form

    I've done this too, thanks for the suggestion. The issue is that when people click Contact Us, it opens the contact form on the same page, it doesn't go to that URL. Therefore, users don't see the captcha unless they actually navigate to misc/contact.

    XF 2.1 Server error log: Swift_TransportException: Email to [email] failed: Failed to authenticate on SMTP server with username "xxxxxx"

    It happens several times a day and never used to do this. Not sure how it could fail sometimes unless AWS SES is going out, but that is unlikely.

    XF 2.1 Server error log: Swift_TransportException: Email to [email] failed: Failed to authenticate on SMTP server with username "xxxxxx"

    I've used AWS SES for notifications for XF for years and worked great. Lately I've noticed about 5 errors a day that look like this: Swift_TransportException: Email to xxxxxxx@gmail.com failed: Failed to authenticate on SMTP server with username "xxxxxxx" using 2 possible authenticators...

    XF 2.1 Ban all users with same registration IP

    That pulls up a list of users, but doesn't enable me to ban them in bulk. There are 2,400 results here, I need to spam clean all of their accounts.

    XF 2.1 Ban all users with same registration IP

    I'm battling some spam issues, and all registered with the same IP. I want to spam clean all of those. I've blocked the IP, but they are already created and then login with different IPs to spam. Spam cleaning causes me to manually click Spam Clean on thousands of accounts. How can I enter an...

    XF 2.0 Approval Queue Bulk Action?

    Thanks, this works if the users/threads are in approval queue. The problem I've having now is that hundreds, if not thousands, of threads are not in approval queue and are scattered all over the the forum across thousands of spam accounts. Spam cleaner is highly manual. Any thoughts on how to...

    XF 2.0 Approval Queue Bulk Action?

    This is good for rejecting, but how do we bulk spam clean?

    XF 2.1 Massive spam issue

    Thanks for the suggestions guys. Spam cleaner works great usually, but with these attacks, it is labor intensive, took about 5 hours to spam clean all the accounts last time. Is there anyway to do it more automated? We're having a lot of issues here. Thanks. I will be setting this up soon...

    XF 2.1 Massive spam issue

    Last Friday I randomly had 6,000 new registrations who posted a lot. One of the mods manually went through and spam cleaned as much as possible, it took hours. I then required manual approval for all new registrations. Today, I got 50+ email notifcations from users spamming via PM, which were...

    Weekly digest [Deleted]

    I've been getting the community popular topics for quite some time, I tried to unsubscribe from them over a month ago but they're still being sent. When I go to /weeklydigest and click Unsubscribe, then hit save, it simply reverts back to the subscribe option. I'm using version 3.4. How can I...
