  1. mick2me added a comment on a file: (Bim) Top Stats   

    This has been perfect up until the latest forum update.
    Now its not working?
  2. mick2me added a post in a topic: Will these Suhosin limits effect my board?   

    I have had this error showing (twice) for some months.
    I have not noticed any problems? What kind of problems can I expect.
    I have contacted the host a couple of times they are reluctant to change the settings, why would that be.
    Yes I am considering changing hosts.
  3. mick2me added a comment: PM message counter display   

    Thanks for that.

    I thought it was a bug.

    Regarding posting attachments.

    I posted several small images of screen shots in a previous post in another thread.

    PM message counter display
    Firstly why are there two different figures
    Second why does the right hand figure not go down
    when you view the pm with the left hand drop down?

    (Why can I not attach an image file to this post?)

    Show Members content, does not show all posts?
    From another thread

    [quote name='mick2me' timestamp='1281958747' post='2006629']

    Made three posts from a test member account.

    These were made in different threads shortly after each other.

    Viewing that members content, it only showed 2 posts.
    When I went to delete all members posts, it showed three posts to delete.

    I think there is a bug in "show members content" ?

  6. mick2me added a post in a topic: Friends only accepted as default   

    Surely this should be set as a default in the board design,
    to prevent every member of every forum in having to do it.

    Currently quite nasty trolls are exploiting this and other IPB loopholes
    to post foul information and abuse on our board.
  7. mick2me added a post in a topic: Friends only accepted as default   

    Currently the board has automatic acceptance of friend requests.
    By default this should be set that members approve all friend requests,
    and can choose to automatically approve friendships if they wish.

    I have some banned members who added me as a friend before they got themselves banned.
    This is a security issue and current default setting should be changed.
  8. mick2me added a post in a topic: Validating Malicious registration names show as NEW MEMBERS   

    It should be written into the code that Banned/validating members should by default not be visible anywhere?
    That would save everyone having to reset these values in ACP.
    Many will only find the need to do this when they are targeted like we are being targeted.

    These people have found a weakness in the code and are exploiting it to great effect!

    Currently even admins cant see who is online.
  9. mick2me added a post in a topic: Validating Malicious registration names show as NEW MEMBERS   

    Can confirm that some admins have seen the obscene validating names and moved them to the banned group.
    We do not delete these users as the IP addresses are evidential.

    I have removed 'new members' from display as advised above.

    Suggestion
    Banned members and validating members should not be visible in the normal members list.
  10. mick2me added a post in a topic: Validating Malicious registration names show as NEW MEMBERS   

    Support Ticket response, posted in this area on IPB support request.

    We have a problem with persons registering dozens of obscene names to disrupt the board.
    These names show on the bottom of the board in the area 'Newest Member' and are visible to all site visitors, even thought they have not verified their email address and been Admin approved.

    Can it be set that new members only show in that area once approved by admin?

    Hello,

    After checking this myself on my test board validating members will not show in the newest member section by default but will if you move them to the banned group apparantly.

    Validating members do, however, show in the member list unless you specifically edit the group to alter this setting. I see you have already done this so am I right in thinking that currently the only public viewable location of these members is in the "newest member" field at the bottom of your board?

    If that is the case this is not strictly a bug in the software. However, I think it would make sense to also hide the group from that field if you have set the group to hide from the member list.

    I would advise you post this as a feature suggestion in the company forums at http://community.invisionpower.com/forum/298-ipboard/ where it will get the attention it deserves from the board developers.

    I note somebody else has also made such a suggestion here...

    http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/3...ed-individuals/

    In the meantime while you wait for an inbuilt feature you could remove that field from your skin by performing the following edit...

    In ACP > Look & Feel > Your Skin > Templates > Board Index > boardIndexTemplate

    find and delete...

    <dt>{$this->lang->words['newest_member']}</dt>
    <dd><a href='{$stats['info']['last_mem_link']}' title='{$this->lang->words['view_profile']}'>{$stats['info']['last_mem_name']}</a>{parse template="user_popup" group="global" params="$stats['info']['last_mem_id'],$stats['info']['last_mem_seo']"}&nbsp;</dd>

    Change the label on the Quote Button from 'Reply' to 'Quote'

    We get loads of unnecessary quotes due to this.

    Its good that there are several ways of viewing new posts.
    I hope you will be grouping those in the same area of the page.
    A drop down menu is good if it contains all related links
    such as differnt types of view in latest topic views.
    (Show all new content since my last visit or Show me all new content I have not read)

    The problem our members had before one member found it was
    that the choice of view were located via another menu on their settings,

    Both should be on a primary menu which could also include 'view new post' day/week/month?
  14. mick2me added a post in a topic: Feature Request: Get active topics for   

    The posts on my forum have dropped to an absolute minimum since the upgrade to 3.0.1
    Feedback from members, they dont like not being able to view recent posts by day/week.
    The new registrations we have seldom post?

    The two settings hidden away under Member drop down menu and My setting, are not a good substitute?
