I mentioned the two most popular in the initial post. I'm aware of sites like Flippa (I have hundreds of thousands of dollars in sales there and have sold forums there in the past). I have also sold on webmaster forums etc. I was looking for different options.
Thanks. I'll check them out.
I tried every possible setting over the years. Every plugin, every possible anti-spam configuration. CleanTalk was one of the most effective, but isn't full proof.
Maybe I need to revisit it all and try it all again, but last time I had an avalanche of spam getting through and moderation spam...
I followed all the guides before and it was a nightmare as so many spammers were filtering through and so many real registrations were being held. Also, I don't want to spend a huge amount of time every day manually checking things.
Thanks Fillip. Will check them out.
I'm a big fan of XenForo and have been here for several years, having moved over from vBulletin which I had used for over ten years.
I love the speed of Xenforo and love how it handles many things like design, however one of the biggest headaches I've had is spam registrations (I appreciate all...
I have sold hundreds of websites over the years, but I haven't sold a website in about 5 years. I've let some websites die and imported the content to another website before doing so, but I have also allowed many websites to just tick over.
I have a couple of forums I want to sell. I had always...
I've just about sorted this now. Here's a recap to help those who might run into the same problem.
I looked into lots of issues, such as firewalls, DNS issues etc. Nothing seemed to arise.
Turns out it was an issue with my email company. I was using countermail. I've use them for years and...
Many thanks for getting back to me on this.
That's good I can rule out Cloudflare.
I moved domains to another service, but that was in October and this started happening way before that. All my DNS is routing through Cloudflare anyways so nothing actually changed when I moved registrars.
My emails are not being sent from my forums. You can see the kind of error that is generated when an email is sent below.
I've looked at many other threads on this issue, but there doesn't seem to be a concrete answer as to what is causing this.
At the moment my guess is that it could be...
Widget Framework appears to be causing problems with PHP 7.
I upgraded to PHP 7 today and all my Xenforo forums generated HTTP 500 errors. After reverting back to PHP 5.6 I was able to load my forums again. The error logs highlighted that widget framework was causing the problem.
As it stands...
Thanks for the quick reply Bobby.
I'm not an expert on SQL either (been a long time since I did it at uni).
Anyone know how to tweak that code so that all passwords are reset.
If I can do that, all I need to do is sent an email out to members explaining the issue afterwards.
Has anyone found an efficient way of resetting the password of all users?
It's something I'd like to do as a precaution in the interest of forum users. At the very least, it's peace of mind for everyone.
Doesn't seem to be an easy way to do it.
Did you find a good solution @Lucas Nicodemus ?
I have completely disabled private messaging on my forum. As such, I do not want any links to the conversations page.
How do I stop the conversations link/icon from displaying altogether.
I have had huge issues with spam on all of my Xenforo forums. I even considered trying other forum software because the situation was so bad and on one of my forums I had to effectively close it down because I did not have the time necessary to maintain it.
I have used dozens of free and...
Thanks for responding to this so quickly :)
The two first points I mentioned are a little different. I should have explained. I was hoping to see who used social media to register and then the total number of people who connected accounts (i.e. those who registered and those who...
