One of my users has reported a similar on www.606v2.com when clicking on the menue option to review threads he's posted on:

I'm getting a weird message when I click on "MyPosts":

"The maximum number of 20 login attempts has been exceeded. You are not allowed to login for the next 10 minutes. Each new try will put back the duration of your banishment."

However I can post freely with no hassle. Any ideas?

I was just about to post the same problem, guess its not just me then, thought I was been hacked.

If you press the latest posts option 20 times you get that message. If I close my browser then log back into the forum again its ok until I reach 20 attempts again.

My board is also experiencing the same thing. It is when you search for new posts. After a bunch of times clicking it you get the 10 minute ban for invalid login attempts.

The maximum number of 20 login attempts has been exceeded. You are not allowed to login for the next 10 minutes. Each new try will put back the duration of your banishment.

And I am the founder as well.

That would be a good way of telling all your members there has been a problem and if they have a problem logging in and get this problem there to follow the clear your cache

If not as some members asked not to have news letters you could just put an announcement up in your forum or both Wink

I have had no more reports this morning from members regarding this particular problem but members wish to know why it is they are being asked to log in every time when they leave themselves logged in and on "auto log in" too. Can you help with this one?

Hi Corrie
You really should have made your own thread about this problem but I'm happy to see if i can help you on this matter.

I don't think this problem has anything to do with the server problem we all had yesterday but there is a setting on your ACP you may want to take a look at as this could have been reset yesterday when the servers was fixed.

Go to ACP >> Users & Groups Tab >>

Users >> Users options >>
In the members box >> Time in minutes before a member is considered "Offline" : set it to say 60 mins or more and then save
Now go to >>

General Tab >>

Forum >> Configuration >>
Misc options right at the bottom of the page >>
Resynchronize your forum : tick the box and then save

This should fix your problem.If this don't help then please make a new thread and link this info to it by a quote so we know what you have done already..Hope that helps
All the best

From your friendly Helper Ape ..
