XF 1.1 Engaged in Conversation


Well-known member
Hey all :)

How can a new member (who hasn't confirmed their account) show as "Engaged in Conversation"?

I have just registered a test user (un-confirmed) and the "Start a Conversation" links are not available to any non-confirmed member. Also, I tried pasting the known link to start a conversation:
..and I was met with a "No Permission" page, as expected.

I believe (I'd have to verify in code) accessing that page still sets the action, but doesn't mean they are actually doing anything.


Well-known member
So, is it safe to say (as the links are not visible on profiles) that they are deliberately pasting in the conversation start link?

Try to match your web server logs with the user's IP and see if there is a referer when s/he access the conversation link.
