  1. Carbo added a post in a topic: Sudden Influx of Bogus Registrations   

    Update:  since changing my Q&A to one impossible to answer question, I have not received one bogus registration.  This tells me that whatever these clowns are using isn't so sophisticated.  Just someone knowing the answers and sharing it amongst their den of fools.  That said, now I need to put up a question that can be answered so legitimate members can join.

    Aiwa, thanks for that info.  I deleted all but the one question of a personal nature.  Let's see if that makes a difference.  If not, then something more dark and sinister is going on .  If it does, though, then I'll still need to change the question(s), because right now no one can know the answer.
    The image idea is a good one.  Is that option available in the Admin Control Panel?

    I definitely have the Q & A set up.  In fact, as a test I changed one of the questions that no one could possibly know the answer to.  It was a personal family matter.  But still the spam registrations are piling up.  Some new way to get around the Q & A must be in use.

    ​Likewise.  I wonder what's going on??

    It started yesterday and has been continual since.  A sudden influx of spam registrations, despite my changing the registration questions.  Is this happening to others?  Suggestions?  Thank you.

    I'm in the process of having my website redesigned.  Included in this is IPB board.  At one time, my forums were active and jumping.  Over the years, social media has taken over my members and the board is now all but a dead relic.  My fault for not keeping up with trends.  That said, I am trying to reinvigorate my site and business and wondering if there is a way to connect my Twitter and Facebook accounts with my board?  I know I can post a tweet and it auto-appears on Facebook.  Wondering if the same type setup can be worked out with my board?
    Thanks from a techno-dinosaur.

    You're right.  I just tried as you said and, sure enough, I am seeing the exact same functionality.  It's an IE11 issue.
    Thank you.

    Steve, yes, it is a custom skin set that was made many years ago. 
    As for testing this issue with the default IPB skin, I went into the ACP but couldn't find the setting to change skins.

    Running 3.4.6
    Noticed today that when I hit the Quote button when replying to a post, the reply box opens but the post I want to quote doesn't appear.
    Other than Bloody Marys and mimosas this morning, what am I doing wrong?

    That was it.  I must have hit it accidentally.  Thank you.
  11. Carbo added a post in a topic: Editing Options Suddenly Greyed Out   

    I was replying to some posts on my board and all was fine.  I was quoting, bolding some words, italicizing, etc.
    Then I went to reply to another post and suddenly the editing options were greyed out.  SInce then I've been unable to get them back.  Any ideas what happened and how to fix it?  Thank you.

    OK.  Figured it out after rereading Andy's post above.  Quite simple, really.

    Hi, Semel.  Using CPanel and accessing the File Manager isn't a problem.  I'm not sure of where I place the two new files.
  14. Carbo added a post in a topic: IP.Board Critical Security Update install question   

    OK.  Can you help a dummie out?  I have two files on my desktop:  core.php and ipsmember.php.  Using CPanel, where do I place these two files?  Beers and women all around to the brave soul who can help me.  Thank you!

    That did it.  Thank you!
