    Hi Michael R, I might be able to offer some help where people can't copy the content directly. Open up your AdminCP -> Look & Feel -> Manage Skin Sets & Templates. Then click on your skin (try a one others don't use as much to test it out). It will open up the editor. You want to open up globalTemplate. Now copy and paste the following code just before </head>
    <script language="JavaScript"> var message = "Sorry. You do not have permission to copy our content or images."; function rtclickcheck(keyp){ if (navigator.appName == "Netscape" && keyp.which == 3){ alert(message); return false; } if (navigator.appVersion.indexOf("MSIE") != -1 && event.button == 2) { alert(message); return false; } } document.onmousedown = rtclickcheck; </script> Change the message to whatever you want.
    Then save. Refresh your forum page and test.I have been testing it on mine for a little while and all seems to be good :D
     
    Of course there are ways round it (like screenshots), but it's more of a pain for these kind of people.
     
     
    On another note, I'm not sure Forums are loosing members to Facebook. I think a lot of it is down to us - the forum admins - to build a forum that's easy to navigate and easy to use. I have tried to help members with tutorials and quick guides on how to integrate Facebook, post up pictures and a quick outline of what you can and can't do on the forum. It does help.
     
    One area of concern I have is the Connect with Facebook feature. It seems to have some small bugs where members can't log in as it doesn't require a password so there is no back up. If the Facebook Connect fails to work, then the member can't log in. Could it not pull the password from Facebook so the member can use their Facebook password to log in if the connect feature doesn't work?
  2. All Cars Online added a post in a topic: Ban Filter - How do you mass delete duplicate entries   

    I have got it....
    Admin CP -> Support -> SQL Management -> SQL Processes
    Ran the following query:
    TRUNCATE TABLE ibf_banfilters
     
     
    Now I can build the ban filter from scratch without the numerous duplicate entries :)
  3. All Cars Online added a post in a topic: Ban Filter - How do you mass delete duplicate entries   

    After some house cleaning within my forum, I noticed a lot of spam users signing up with email addresses like ...@showcoachfactory.com, mail.ru, and many others.
     
    I have added the email addresses as a wildcard ban filter ( *@showcoachfactory.com) which is working well, however it has taken me ages to add just the one ban filter. Scrolling through the ban filters currently in place, I have found many duplicate items - one was duplicated over 50 times.
     
    Surely I don't need this many duplicates and deleting them through Admin CP is a very slow process because there are over 1800 pages worth of ban filters to pull from the database.
     
    Is there a quicker way of deleting duplicate entries without affecting the forum?

    I had this issue on my site and did log a bug report in the Tracker.

    Everyone once in a while, "Just content I Follow" selects itself and shows no content. It's supposed to remember your choices but occassionally doesn't.

    I have gone through all my skins and the code (shown below) within my editorLoadJS files are the same throughout.
    {parse js_module="textEditor"} {parse js_module="textEditor.bbcode"} <php> $this->_editorJsLoaded = true; $jsonEncoded = IPSText::jsonEncodeForTemplate( isset($options['smilies']) && is_array($options['smilies']) ? $options['smilies'] : array() ); $options['bypassCKEditor'] = ( isset($options['bypassCKEditor']) ) ? $options['bypassCKEditor'] : 0; </php> <if test="bypassCkEditor:|:$options['bypassCKEditor'] != 1"> <if test="defined("CK_LOAD_SOURCE") AND CK_LOAD_SOURCE"> <!-- Load source files, not the minified version --> <script type="text/javascript" src="{$this->settings['js_base_url']}js/3rd_party/ckeditor/ckeditor_source.js?nck={$this->settings['noCacheKey']}"></script> <else /> <script type="text/javascript" src="{$this->settings['js_base_url']}js/3rd_party/ckeditor/ckeditor.js?nck={$this->settings['noCacheKey']}"></script> </if> <else /> <script type="text/javascript"> CKEDITOR = { config: {} }; </script> </if> <script type="text/javascript"> /* Dynamic items */ CKEDITOR.config.IPS_BBCODE = {IPSLib::fetchBbcodeAsJson( array( 'skip' => array( 'sharedmedia' ) ) )}; CKEDITOR.config.IPS_BBCODE_NOPARSE = {IPSLib::fetchBbcodeAsJson( array( 'noParseOnly' => 1 ) )}; CKEDITOR.config.IPS_BBCODE_IMG_URL = "{$this->settings['public_cdn_url']}style_extra/bbcode_icons"; CKEDITOR.config.IPS_BBCODE_BUTTONS = []; CKEDITOR.timestamp = "{$this->settings['noCacheKey']}"; /* Has to go before config load */ var IPS_smiley_path = "{$this->settings['emoticons_url']}/"; var IPS_smiles = <if test="hasimages:|:! empty($options['smilies']['count'])">{$jsonEncoded}<else />{}</if>; var IPS_remove_plugins = []; var IPS_extra_plugins = []; /* Load our configuration */ CKEDITOR.config.customConfig = '{$this->settings['js_base_url']}js/3rd_party/ckeditor/ips_config.js'; /* Override with prefs */ CKEDITOR.config.CmdVAsPlainText = <if test="hasPastePlain:|:$this->memberData['bw_paste_plain']">true<else />false</if>; </script> {parse expression="$this->registry->output->addToDocumentHead( 'importcss', "{$this->settings['css_base_url']}style_css/{$this->registry->output->skin['_csscacheid']}/ipb_ckeditor.css" )"} Could you replace your code with the code I have above and see if that works?

    You can do the edits through the AdminCP as FTP'ing the files doesn't set it up on the database and causes issues (been there and done that :lol: ).
     
     
    Someone on here should know what edits need to be done. If I could tell you the edits I would as I'm new to php.
     
     
    Evanescences support team hasn't been too bad for me although if it's down to a skin that's not been upgraded yet, unless they're willing to advise you on the edits you may have to wait a little while.
  7. All Cars Online added a post in a topic: No Reply Text Area   

    I have never seen that error before :o
     
     
    Did you follow the steps above in my previous post to see if that can solve the issue within the editorLoadJS?
     
     
    Also is the skin compatible with 3.4.3?
    It might be an issue you will have to raise with Evanescence's Support Team if the above step doesn't work.

    Yeah I've been using the other options available such as the IPB Spam Service, PlayThru and Stop Forum Spam but I'm still getting these spammers registering. I know this is a pain to monitor but it is effective.
     
    Disadvantage of this method is some new members have to wait a good few hours for their account to be validated unless of course they sign up using Facebook.
  9. All Cars Online added a post in a topic: No Reply Text Area   

    Are you using a third party skin (ie not the IP Board skin)?
     
    I don't have the reply issue on my forum after the upgrade to 3.4.3 and the only thing I can think of is to go to the skin's templates and open the editorLoadJS in the skin you are having issues with. Select ALL the code, copy and paste into Notepad (this is in case it doesn't work) then delete it from the editor.
     
    Now copy the code below and paste in the editor and save. Then see if it works.
    If it doesn't, delete the code and replace with the code you pasted in the Notepad file.
     
    Note: This code came directly from my editorLoadJS file under the IP.Board skin.
    I can't guarantee it'll work but it's worth a try. Just make sure you do a copy of the original code and paste into a Notepad file before you do it.

  10. All Cars Online added a post in a topic: Stop the Spam: Guide to stopping spammers   

    The best way I deal with spammers is to check and approve accounts manually and ask 2 questions on the registration form.
    Because I run a car forum, the questions I ask is what car do you drive and the second being the real name. These questions have caught out the spammers everytime as when you review the account you notice immediately when it's a spammer due to the answers to these questions.
     
    I know it's a pain to approve the accounts manually, but it works and for me is the best way of dealing with the problem :)

    Brilliant :D
    Thank you for that. I did a search before to see if anyone else had this problem but it didn't bring up anything that matched. Was looking in the wrong place :lol:
  12. All Cars Online added a post in a topic: Bulk Email Fatal Error   

    Hi all,
    I have my board (IPB 3.4.3) configured to send all bulk emails through Mandrill. When I first set this up, I did send a bulk email and it worked perfectly. I even have the stats on Mandrill to say it worked perfectly.
     
    However, after wanting to send a bulk email out to my members this afternoon I got a fatal error message:
    Fatal error : func_get_args(): Can't be used as a function parameter in /home/xxxxxx/public_html/forums/admin/applications_addon/ips/nexus/extensions/bulkMailFilters.php on line 37
     
     
    Can someone please tell me what has gone wrong here and how to fix it?
    Thanks in advance :)

    Invision Power have marked it down as "Not a bug" though which I disagree with as something isn't right since the recent upgrade.
  14. All Cars Online added a post in a topic: New Content filter settings problem   

    There is no setting as such. You have to de-select the Just Items I Follow - hold your ctrl button then click it.
    It should remember the selection. You upgraded to 3.4.3 by any chance.
     
    I had reported it as a bug but Invision Power say it was a bug in the previous version which causes this problem.
  15. All Cars Online added a post in a topic: Fatal Error while access Cache Management/Recount & Rebuild Tools   

    This problem has been sorted :)
    The fault was caused by a bug in the Calender and an upgrade to the latest version was required to fix it.
    If the problem persists, raise a support ticket so you don't have to go through the issues I had.
     
     
    Warning: I did some research in here and found other members had the same error. After following the guidelines, I crashed my database and my board was un-usable. I would not recommend doing any of the clean out commands suggested on here without contacting IP first. This will save you time and hassle trying to recover your site from a back up.
