    I was getting bombed by lots of ridiculous sounding new members a couple of months ago. It stopped dead as soon as I removed the existing Question and Answer Challenge entries and put some new ones in. Make them something specific to your site theme - something that your potential members are likely to know.

    Thanks to Rimi for the mod, but in addition to CallieJo's ideas - Guests/Everyone - Members Only - Just Friends.

    Deja Vu! The same advocates and the same opponent!

    For what it's worth I still think that profile permissions would be a good idea. I don't see how the above forums topics scenareo might apply.

    Shall we meet up again in 14 months? :)

    This is how I did it - Admin/Look & Feel -> Bad Word Filter -> Add New Filter.

    A good way to fix this is to put the first part of the more recent style share link into the swear filter - to be replaced by the old one. It works well. :)

    How easy would it be to do this at the most simple level though? Member has profile set to public or members only. A tinyint in an ocean of blobs. :)

    At the simplest level, it would be a nice feature if community members could have the ability (if admins allowed) to have their profiles viewable by guests or not. It started with a few members complaining that the world could see their profile pictures or other stuff that they'd put on, then a few more chipped in to say that they'd customize theirs a bit more if only members had access. As a result of that we ended up turning off profile view for guests - where other members didn't mind, or actually wanted their profiles visible to everyone.

    I suppose that making it a bit more complex like 'only allow friends' or choosing which bits to show would be a bigger ask, but stuff like that might be a bit more 'community orientated'.

    This now works again with the 311 patch (thanks Matt!).

    I find that this no longer works in 3.1.1 - any chance of an update please?

    This is [b]really[/b] helpful - thanks!

    Right, I should be able to do that. Thanks.

    Mine is totally messed up now. I'd like to remove it completely and start again with it. Is there a guide anywhere for doing this, because I dropped all the tables beginning with ibf_downloads, but if I try to run the upgrade script again it won't let me (says that it is installed) - after uninstalling it from the ACP.

    This is what led me to run the install from 'Applications Not Installed' in the first place, after the original upgrade went wrong (with no descriptions for buttons, etc.)

    Same errors here and I can confirm that the above is present in versions.xml

    BBCode permission
    Made a custom BBCode - a simple IFrame code which was set for Admin use.

    I made a post using the code [iframe]http://theurl[/iframe] and it worked as expected.

    As another user or a guest it just shows the BBCode.

    I had expected that the output would work for all but that the usage should be restricted.

    I'm really glad to hear that. It's something that's crossed my mind a few times.
