V 1.5 - Resolution Alert in Reports
When a user files a Report, and I fill in something where it says
Send Resolution/Rejection alert
does what I fill in there go to the person who reported the post, the person who authored the post that was reported, neither, or both?
Thank you advance.
When a forum node is configured as a private forum, it says (private) on the main forum menu for unauthorized users. This is by design - we want users to be aware of these areas but only certain people have access to them.
I have not been able to find where this expression, (private) is stored...
When I inherited our XF 1 installation a few years, the forum used forum@<our_domain> as its email.
2 years ago, I asked for access to this account via Google/Gmail to be able to monitor the email traffic in and out. (I asked for this because, to the best of my knowledge, XF doesn't/didn't...
I am a XF admin and an ex-techie.
We currently run XF 1.5.
Our company began in 2012 with a WP-based web site and their forum software.
We switched to XF for our forum in 2015 but continue to use WP for the web site, part of which is blog containing articles that allows for...
A user on our forum recently pointed out that spammers will post exactly the same thing on multiple forums. My user sent me a screen shot of a Google search - it showed this same text, all posted at about the same time, in a dozen or more different forums on different web sites. Interestingly...
We have a confirmed behavior - if a post goes into the moderation queue, once it's approved, it does not appear in New Posts for our users. This is unexpected and unwanted behavior - is there a workaround or configuration item we can change?
Thanks in advance.
I have a page or two I've created in the ACP. The codes seems understandable enough, and HTML of a sort, e.g.
I would, however, like to find something equivalent to INDENT in the BB code editor so that I can, e.g., take my page of questions and answers and have all the questions...
We use Spam Cleaner, configured to save the posts in the moderation queue to an Admin-only area rather than delete them.
When I have a post in the moderation queue that I want to delete, where does it go? I don't have any opportunity to communicate with the user or save it anywhere, and I can...
I have been frustrated by the apparent lack of records of emails I've sent out through the ACP. To that end, someone at my company HQ who manages their gmail-based email accounts created forum@<company_name> account but as a real account, not just a forwarder.
It works for many things, e.g., I...
Is there a maximum limit on the number of participants that can participate in a PM?
Is this number configurable and, if so, where?
I have a small group of users wanting to communicate privately, 7 people at the most recent count, and they're asking if PM is a viable way to do that. Rather...
We do these three steps about once a month:
Run a program outside of XF that compares a spreadsheet of email addresses to our XF user email addresses.
If a match is found, the user is added to a "holding" group whose only purpose is to hold these member temporarily while I send them an email...
I would like to make the name of the node (forum section) used in New Posts appear more prominently, perhaps in a larger font or I'm open to other suggestions. The reason is to prevent mistaken responses to threads in sections a user would otherwise ignore.
Thanks in advance.
We are about to use the ability to email a group of users from within XF for the first time. The recipients will be all members of a specific group. (They are attendees of an event and we are emailing them notice of a private forum created for them.)
In ACP -> Users - > Email Users, I can...
The location field a user fills out contains only a single data element but has anyone tried to search it for, e.g., all the users located in a particular state or country? I noticed that it's not searchable in the ACP.
How important is having more detailed location information to other XF...
100 people attended one of our events. I created a group for them, and our programmer added each of them to the new group based on a spreadsheet of email addresses. I used the ACP to send out an email to each member of the group, announcing a special forum section just for attendees of this...
I am using Spam Cleaner, which I think is an add-on, in my Moderation Queue. I have it configured to, instead of deleting messages, _move_ messages to an admin-only section of the forum. I like this in the interest of completeness - if a Spam Cleaner decision is questioned, we can review the...
E.g., if I wish to search my forum for
but don't want matches on only "abe" or only "lincoln", only "abe lincoln", what do I put into the search box?
And is there a comprehensive explanation of how this works somewhere online?
Thanks in advance.
