Unregistered users posting - Zapit2um - 2013-01-29

How do I keep unregistered useres from creating new threads and making post? I have the email verification and the captcha turned on.

Check your forum permissions for one thing.


RE: Unregistered users posting - Zapit2um - 2013-01-29

I only see Admin permissions and it has nothing about setting user permissions. Am I missing something? BTW... I am very new to this.


RE: Unregistered users posting - Euan T - 2013-01-29

You can set permissions on a per forum basis. ACP > Forums > Select a forum > Permissions

Make sure Unregistered users are set to not be able to post in all forums.


RE: Unregistered users posting - Zapit2um - 2013-01-30

My permissions seem to be set so no one can post unless they are a registered user. I don;t see a category for "unregistered" user. There is a category for "Awaiting activiation" Still have spam being posted on a regular basis and cleaning up the forum is beginning to be a hassel.


RE: Unregistered users posting - Euan T - 2013-01-30

Could you post details of an admin account in the Private Inquiries forum please? That way I can take a look and double check your permissions.

Have you installed any anti-spam plugins at all? Because even if guests can't post, you'll still likely get spam.


RE: Unregistered users posting - Zapit2um - 2013-01-30

Details of an admin account? Do you mean log in info? Not sure where the private inquiries forum is located. And I have not installed any plug-in's.

We'll need your URL, an admin username and password. Only staff members will be able to see the thread.

We do generally advise installing at least 1 plugin to keep spam out. It's difficult to combat, but this thread gives a pretty good list of recommendations: http://community.mybb.com/thread-110224.html
