    Understanding spfbl.net

    I am receiving regular complaints from new registrants about being banned for no apparent reason. In each case, the only flag shown is dnsbl.spfbl.net and the following text appears when I go to that site and check on the IP in question: This is the rDNS found...

    I did, but only after searching on the term you gave me, replete with underscores, was I able to get to that screen in order to edit. I now how to find it the way G-d intended, through the ACP menus. :) -S-

    I do not see any option, on my screen shot, to go one level deeper as you show in your screen shot. You are in Appearance, Languages. I am in Setup, Options, Appearance. Ah, you are in Appearance, not Setup -> Options -> Appearance. Ah, Appearance from the main ACP menu. OK, now at least...

    The only thing on this Appearance screen not showing is the Save button - I don't see what you're showing.

    A search on "your post has been removed" doesn't find anything. I'm still unclear as to what I can search on. As I mentioned, I can search on what you gave me, which seems to be the "title" but how would I know that the title of what I'm looking for is "spam_cleaner_ban_reason?" Filter...

    @Brogan, thank you. 1. Is the only way to find these phrases to search for them? I was able to find the first one you gave by searching on it, but my problem is that if you hadn't told me what to search for, I still wouldn't be able to edit it. 2. See attached screenshot - what I am doing...

    Here's the email I received from a recently banned user: To whom it may concern, Earlier this week I tried to register for a forum account. I registered with username <removed> using my email <removed>. I was then told to wait for approval, and found out just now that I was banned with the...

    Spammers currently receive wording that I created, which includes things like {username} and {BoardTitle} that are not being evaluated - the user receives the literal "{username}". 1. Please point me to whatever I might need to do in order that these expressions are evaluated. 2. Please...

    XF 2.2 Search in ACP on Birthdate?

    My ACP screen for searching users does not give me the option to search on anything related to birthdate - is there a screen somewhere that I can check off a box and have that appear on my search screen, or would this require an add-on? Thanks in advance. -S-

    Permissions and Custom Groups

    You're welcome, glad to be able to help out a little. @mikeAB, no disrespect to you intended, but your perspective is an oversimplification from my point of view. There's a story - can't remember where I read it now - of a martial arts seminar in which a student asks a question, and the...

    Are There Sub-Groups or Group Inheritance?

    It would be useful for me to have a group hierarchy or inheritance or similar feature. I currently have a group named Manual Approval Required for All Posts - does what I need, but I would like to have multiple groups, each with the same rights, but to help me keep track of why someone is on...

    Permissions and Custom Groups

    @mikeAB, on our XF forum, we manage everything at the group level, and haven't yet found something XF can't do for us - it's very flexible. It's easy to have a group for people viewing without having registered, another for people who have registered, another for people who meet certain...
