right, the problem seems to have resolved itself; my test user is now able to post without moderation (something to do with a cron job?) However, within that brief period in between, I managed to create a thread that's invisible to everyone, except for my test user. It's flagged as waiting for...
I've managed to set up a promotion rule, and in the admin panel my test user has been upgraded to the 'verified user' group (secondary - primary is still set to unapproved user), but all posts are were still being moderated and the title underneath the name still says 'unapproved'.
Thanks for all that info. I'm nearly there. Except for step 3. How do I mass update all my users to the Validated Users group (and does it have to be as 'secondary group', or can it be the main group?) - do I need a new add-on for that?
I've been getting a few spam registrations that seem to bypass my sonnb's spam filter and a captcha. I presume they might actually be human spammers.
I've enabled 'approvals by moderator' but it stops people from immediately posting.
I was wondering, is there a way for new members to start...
I keep getting server errors as well. Not sure if the error below causes an error to the user as well.
Any idea what the below means?
ErrorException: simplexml_load_string() [<a href='function.simplexml-load-string'>function.simplexml-load-string</a>]: Entity: line 1: parser error...
Nope, I am using a CDN - but i think that only works on the Wordpress side of the site.
I think my hosting provider might be using something like Varnish (some server side caching); could that explain it?
I'm a bit confused about the Spam filter. I've had a few spam user register to my site, who post spammy posts. When I use the Spam Cleaner on them, it removes them, but also flags up other users from that same IP address.
But for some reason I appear in that list as well. First I thought maybe...
Has anyone been able to add the KeyCaptcha on a responsive theme? The smallest version of the captcha image is 360px wide, which is too big for iPhone, causing it to break out.
I was wondering if there's a way around this, as KeyCaptcha is a great way to keep spammers out.
Yep, I have both of them up and running. Had a look at the log and they are stopping a lot of spammers. Guess the 60 registrations that slipped through in the 24 hour window weren't known spammers / managed to get around it.
Hi Arty - i've tried your update, but the user profile still seems to be broken. See screen grab and image below:
Am I looking at some cached version by any chance?
sorry, i realised the upgrade has thrown out my KeyCaptcha, which blocked a lot of spammers. So no problem with Stop Spam Here. Although, shouldn't it stop spammers anyway if a Captcha is not in place?
I upgraded to Xenforo 1.1.5 yesterday evening and woke up to a full inbox of new registrations. Unfortunately, they all seem to be fake :(
Has anyone else noticed this? Am I right in thinking that the upgrade might have removed a code snippet for Stop Spam Here? If so, what is the snippet and...
I've had to uninstall the add on, as it caused an error. Users were able to register, but once they've filled out their form and submitted it, they were shown an error page (they were registered, however a lot of users didn't return as they were thrown out of the site).
Any idea why this is...
Sorry, wrong link. The correct one is below. Have a look on my forum and you'll see it in action. It basically makes your theme (any theme) responsive so it displays correctly on mobile and tablets. But for it to work I think you cannot use tables for your layout...
