    Use member groups & permissions to allow access to private forums (and any other customisable by group option). If you have Nexus you can link these groups to the purchase of a VIP/Donation access.

    Thanks. Hopefully that disable will fix the problem.
     
    I had an areyouhuman.com playthru catcpha alternative doesn't seem to be working. Maybe it went down for some reason and disabled it, letting the spammers in.
     
    Odd.
  3. Mack_au added a post in a topic: New style of email spam?   

    over the last few days I've received a new type of spam email, does anyone recognise this? It's coming into an email I use for my IPB board and all from emails that my users have.
     
    They look like this:
     
    or
     


     
    The subjects are a single word broken up like "encourag ed" or "dispat ched".
    With the "watch this alerts" section pointing at a URL made up of only an IP address followed by a long set of random characters.

    Thanks.
     
    I can get a sidebar DFP working but my global header doesn't want to show up any more even though it should be serving adsense (like my sidebar was doing). Can't afford to have my global leaderboard not working at all.
     
    Edit - Also tried it with a global footer. Not working either. :S
     
    Edit - It's now working. Maybe it just took some time for it to work.

    Thanks.
     
    So the globalTemplate would end up having the header code from every ad in it?
  6. Mack_au added a post in a topic: Google DoubleClick DFP Header/Body tags   

    I'm currently using nexus to control the locations of various adsense ads, but I think my site could benefit from upgrading to Google DoubleClick For Publishers (DFP), but I'm having an issue after generating the tags for my initial test ad.
     
    Adsense gives you one set of code that you place in the " HTML Code " section of an ad in nexus.
     
    DFP gives you two sets of code to input. The first is meant for " Header " ( Place this code into the HEAD element of the web page), while the second is Document body Place this code where this unit should show in the page body.
     
    Is anyone using DFP, and knows exactly how I'm meant to work this out?
  7. Mack_au added a post in a topic: Any way to download an archive of articles?   

    As the title says, is there a way to download all of the articles from ip.content?
     
    I need an archive of all the articles on the site.
    Thanks.

    Bad words in username
    Today someone signed up to my site with a swear word in their username.
     
    I would not have expected this to be allowed.
     
    Their name was in a format of: ALLCAPS[b]BADWORD[/b]NAME
     
    I checked my badword filter and found that "BADWORD" wasn't included, but that "BAD" which "BADWORD" is comprised of, was included as a loose filter.
     
    Is this a bug or just a consequence of the way the filter has to work? Do bad words prevent people from signing up with a name including that?

    Yep those sure are words.
  11. Mack_au added a comment on a blog entry: 4.0 - Advertisements   

    Is there going to be a way to put advertisements inside content? For example, to set an advertising block inside a long IP content article, or a forum post?
  12. Mack_au added a comment on a blog entry: 4.0 - Advertisements   

    Sounds good.
     
    Just don't screw up my adsense and I'm happy.
  13. Mack_au added a post in a topic: Why The Mobile Skin Is So Important   

    Is it going to have a proper link to a forum. For some reason my sites mobile skins never have a proper link into the forum.
  14. Mack_au added a post in a topic: Vote Mod   

    Is there a mod that allows polls/voting in a '3, 2, 1' vote style OR a vote system that gives the users a certain amount of votes, and they allows them to vote in whatever way they feel (like 6 votes for one person, or 1 vote for 6 people).
     
    Thanks.
  15. Mack_au added a post in a topic: Option to limit poll answer amounts.   

    Bump again.
     
    It would also be good for the option to also include allowing only a specific number of votes, a specific number of times.
     
    So you can give one option 3 votes, one option 2 votes, and a third option 1 vote.
     
    Thanks.
