One customer ask me how he can update his credit card information on the forum side. I could not see a way for him to do it but I could add it under manage in the admin control panel. I s there a way for him to do it on the forum side in the customer settings somewhere? Or, must all this be done on the processor side such as Stripe or Paypal. I could not find any info on how the customer can update it.
I got a new credit card and would like to change what you have on file to this new card. How do I go about doing that? I can't find where it is on the BTC.
I am having a problem with users being unable to create accounts. They get an error ex0. When I look at the system log, I get this log message: (I am Self Hosted and have applied the latest update)

I haven't had problems with IPBoard before, so I am unsure what troubleshooting steps to take.
This app scans the database to detect members who have rmultiple accounts at your forum, and it will list the results.
The detection method is being done in 4 ways.
1) Registration Method
This method is based on scanning the members table for members who have registered more than one account at your forum from the same ip. The ip address in question will be displayed with the latest multiple account. When the ip address is clicked upon, it will display all the other aliases of that member.
2) Posting Method
This method is based on scanning the posts table for members who have posted from more than one account at your forum from the same ip. The ip address in question will be displayed with the latest multiple account. When the ip address is clicked upon, it will display all the other aliases of that member as well as the posts and topics that they have posted.
3) Ip Login Method
This method is based on scanning members known ip addresses, i.e. their last used ips, during the login and if a member has logged in to different accounts from the same ip, the action will be logged and displayed.
4) Device Detection Method
This is the most accurate method imo. Ipb adds a unique cookie to members devices when they log in to the forum. The cookie exparation date is set to one year and its unique string is associated with the users device and stored in the device table. This means if someone logs in to your forum, logs out and then logs in using another account and a different ip address, then it can tell that it was the same person. It means that person has to use same machine, same browser irrespective of the ip address he/she is using.
All 4 multiple accounts detection methods have a quick search option where you can search the resuts based on members names.
All 4 detection methods will be available at the Mod Cp area as well. This is group permission based. The Ip Login&Device methods can be enabled/disabled individually. You can exclude a member or members from showing up in these logs. This is if you do not want your staff members to have access to those particular logs.
Automated Multiple Registrations Topics
Whenever someone registers more than once account using the same ip address, an automated topic will be posted at a forum of your choice listing all the previous accounts of that member.
Ip Registrations Limit
And last, but not least, this app adds an option to limit the number of registrations from the same ip and from members last used ip addresses.
Linked Accounts allows your members to link one or more accounts then quickly switch between them. You have a full range of options about which usergroups can use the Linked Accounts system and which usergroups cannot be linked to. The POST AS feature allows the user with linked accounts to create/reply to a topic using a Linked Account. Each action is logged so you can keep a track of what linked account users do.
The Linked Accounts system could be useful for fan fiction forums, roleplaying forums, or just those of you with multiple accounts (e.g, John Doe, Administrator, Forum News).
Linked Accounts is integrated to Login system of IPS4, so to control the number of failed logins, Reset failed login count (minutes) on ACP -> Login Handlers -> Login Settings.
This version contains an upgrader, so you can keep on using accounts created on this app for IP.Board 3.4.
