  1. @Michael.J, is there a way to stop guests from being able to create topics (via Auto Welcome) in a private forum (members can only see the topic "they" create)? I'm getting a decent number of these:

    I was using this plugin and determined that I apparently don't even use it, and the Pages blocks are just fine for me, so I've disabled it. Nothing has changed about my site so far.
  3. Yes, I have a few PayPal related errors, but nothing seems amiss there. I'll dig into it more later. One of the recent ones is: {"name":"INVALID_RESOURCE_ID","message":"Requested resource ID was not found.","information_link":"https://developer.paypal.com/docs/api/payments/#errors","debug_id":"8562bab063c59"} There was an error processing the payment. Please try a different payment method or contact us for assistance. The user isn't asked about payment yet, though.
  4. I'm having this same issue. It just spins and spins and spins. I've not updated my main site, but this is another site that I did update, and when they try to create an account, the spinner spins and the account is never created.

    Hmmm, it doesn't seem like it's going to be. Is it definitively broken on 4.6?
  6. If it doesn't work on macOS/iOS/iPadOS, why show the option to enable push notifications at all? This is a lie: Why not detect the browser or OS, and not show the option (since it's going to fail) on those OSes? I know Apple's privacy tracking (for which I'm very grateful) obfuscates some data, but you can still detect the OS or handle this more gracefully, no?
  7. Well this appears to be abandon-ware.
  8. @Adriano Faria, I noticed this typo after an email search: Display, of course, has letters transposed. Thank you for the plugin. I've added it. Easier than searching for these things (spammy ones) in the database. Or a feature I feel like IPS should have had in their software already:
  9. My point is that it might be nice to see them somewhere in the ACP, because I had 872 from one IP address (which I might like to block), and could have easily had more. These "guest" posts, even if they never make it to the site, still can suck up server resources. I had 1200+ total. Showing them in the ACP somewhere (with IP address, email, etc.) might let an admin notice a trend like what happened to me, and take an action. Thank you. I'll look into that.
  10. I'm back again… Slightly OCD. Is there a way to see these "pending" posts in the user interface, the ACP, anywhere on the site? I'd love to delete the 500 of these… If for no other reason than to just clear them out so I don't have to see them in my forums_posts table. I have over 850 of these from the past few days, just from the one IP address.
  11. My IPS install says 1.4.11, and "up to date" even though 1.4.12 is published/available. And under IPS 4.5, you can't really force it to update, or download the files to manually update.
  12. I did that right before posting. But yeah, it's updated now. Thank you.
  13. :sigh: I wish approvals happened more quickly.
  14. I added a bunch of acronyms like PGA and USGA and LPGA and NBC and ESPN and whatnot to the exceptions list, but when I or a member post a topic with those in the title, they're re-made as Pga, Usga, Lpga, and so on. Could you update the application so that these exceptions apply in that direction, too, and not just in the direction of words that shouldn't be capitalized at all? @TDBF, would happily pay a small fee for this, as I hate editing topic titles.
  15. He's using them the way they're used by just about everyone. Email is email, PMs are PMs. The second tab creates a PM. The third one controls an email that's sent. The fourth a topic that's created (or added to). The fifth a Status Update.
  16. @Justin Stellman, this is pretty basic stuff. If you're going to run a forum you don't have to be a developer, but you should know the differences between a Private Message (which can also trigger an email notification) and an email. Where the reply goes to depends on what you specify as the sending email address. Some sites set up email addresses that won't bounce, but which don't have an inbox or anything. It depends on what you configure.
  17. Yeah. I'm not the developer of course, I'm just trying to tell you it's possible. Yes, it's an email. Your forum can send regular old emails, and so can AutoWelcome. Or it can send a PM. Or it can do both.
  18. Yes. Find the 'H' and change it to an 'M'. You'll also possibly have to change a setting in the cron table so the task runs more frequently. Not sure what you're asking here. An email is an email, a PM is a PM…
  19. Do you know when you might push that update out, so I can look to update my installation?

    It is for me on 4.5, yes.
  21. Thanks, yeah, I went through them one by one. There were about 20 from a deleted account, like I'd mentioned, and a surprising number (of OLD posts) that were marked as -3 in queued. I changed a lot of them to 1 so they'd show up in the approval queue and I could approve or delete them. Who knows… maybe we missed them at the time. Got the list down to about 40, not counting the 30-50 spammy posts by bots that will be removed if they don't register (they won't) within the next week or two. So, really, most of the old stuff was just old guest posts that may or may not have had the right flags in the database. But, every action except changing some of those columns was done in the UI on the site, either in the ModCP or the ACP, so whatever needed to be done to affect other tables I'm sure was done. Thank you for taking the time, @bfarber.
  22. I allow people to post before registering, but my database has 209 rows of posts with author_id=0. Most of the newer ones are spam, some of the older ones are clearly posts that guests made but then didn't register, and a few in the middle are posts made by someone who requested his account be deleted. Is there a safe way to expunge the crap from the forums_posts database, but keep the posts attributed to the deleted member (and maybe any made in the last 15 days in case the person wants to return to register)? Can the "old" or "bad" posts simply be deleted in the database, or will that muck up a table somewhere else? Some of these posts date back to 2014. Those guys aren't registering for the forum any time soon to publish those old posts.
  23. Has this been resolved? I just submitted a support ticket with a getOnlineUsers issue.
  24. It locked up a bunch more, so I disabled that part of Spacious ACP. I don't really care. By "a bunch" I mean about eight times over the next 20 hours.
