Despite uploading the 'upgrade only' files multiple times, I do not get the option to upgrade my installation - only do a fresh install, which states it will remove all existing data because it detects my config.php file.
Intermittently, I get one of three errors on any page of my XF forum.
"An unexpected error has occurred" on white screen
Google Chrome error "Error 139 (net::ERR_TEMPORARILY_THROTTLED): Requests to the server have been temporarily throttled."
Mysqli statement execute error : Prepared statement...
The voting for a pretty hefty competition was foolishly run through a poll on a forum I administrate. The unfortunate result was of course that people signed up for multiple accounts to vote on the poll more than once.
Through executing an SQL query, would there be a way of me getting results...
Due to moving house recently, I set up the tethering plan on my iPhone contract so that I wasn't without an Internet connection for a few days. I'm running XenForo on a forum I administrate, and it has been completely unusable when tethering with the iPhone.
I've got a couple of RSS feeds running on a forum, but they are heavily cluttering the What's New page. Is there any way of preventing a node from populating the What's New page, or the RSS feed threads being posted as read?
A forum member requested that I change their vote to a poll. I changed the poll_response_id to the correct ID - but their vote remains the same on the forum. Are there any other values I have to change, or cron tasks I have to run?
When closing a thread to prevent responses, users are unable to vote in an open poll in that thread. I think this should be optional - as sometimes you may want a poll without a discussion, or to lock the thread whilst continuing the voting.
When trying to use a YouTube RSS feed with the feeder, I get an unspecified error - "please try again later".
An example of a YouTube RSS feed URL would be: http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/base/users/username/uploads?alt=rss&v=2&orderby=published&client=ytapi-youtube-profile
How can I go about filtering the members of my forum to those who've never posted? On the "Search for Users" page, I can only filter by "message count is at least...", and at least 0 is obviously everybody.
Migrated my phpBB3 forum to XF on the 1st of November, and this morning we got our first spam registration/poster. No big deal, as we used to get about 20/30 of them per day on phpBB3 - and getting rid of him was a much quicker process.
Let's hope some integration with Stop Forum Spam comes as...
Got 10 or so users using Google Chrome on different computers saying that embedded content (images, videos) doesn't display for them. It's sometimes, but not always, resolved by refreshing. Doesn't appear to be happening in any other browser.
It seems that after a while, the "Spam" link on user badges disappears, which prevents moderators from being able to ban people. In the case that a moderator needs to ban someone who has been registered for long enough to warrant not having the "spam" button (or what ever criteria that...
I always find on forums I run that if I sticky announcements, people get 'sticky fever' and don't check them - and if I put them in an announcements section, regardless of how busy the forum is, people don't check it.
How do you get your forum users to read announcements?
