In progress How do I restrict posting to members only?

Post by laser92awd on February 4th 2012, 12:28 am

I keep getting bogus "spam" posts in my forum. I've changed my admin password multiple times and the breach doesn't seem to be through the admin account. The posts are coming from "non-members", i.e., they haven't joined my forum but somehow they are posting to it with seemingly random user names. I need to restrict posts to forum members only and stop the spam posts.

I'm sorry if this has been answered 1,000 times, but I searched and did not see an exact answer to my question.

P.S. I went in today and deleted all the spam posts (one by one, gah) so at the moment there aren't any in there.

Go to
AP>> General>> Categories and Forums>> Forum Permissions Control
If post is selected for ALL, then you must change that under every topic's permissions it has the x and check. make sure it says members not guests for post.
