multiple non owner issue

Post by laura lanham on July 20th 2013, 5:52 pm

I am a member of this forum.

am here to represent several of its members

http://www.spiritsjourney.net/t2124-photos-all-gone

Problem one.........the owner has not been to forum for a very very long time and it has some serious issues going on.
It wont take pics and all pics that were on the forum have now disappeared  ..not sure if a image shack hack or  no paid space left..... can  admin here take a look please?It does look a if a hacker spammed with image shack.

problem two... is it possible  for you to change owner hands since the owner apparently has lost interest? Can you contact them and see if they would change it  over to someone who is actually interested in maintaining the site? No member has the ability to contact the  actual Owner of said site  .

At this time there are only moderators under the guise of admin who have no actual ability to go to control room  so to speak to check things, buy credits,  ban etc.back room control .

can you help ????? can you advise? Is there a solution to this problem...

await your response eagerly.

thank you Derri for the link

but we still need a admin here to look a the other issue...the image shack problem


I checked ...owner last looked in on May 23 but did not respond to anyone or to anything. He actually hasn't been active in over a year...

okay back to hack by the shack or whatever the problem is.. can you take a peek?

Well I can't. However Image Shack do regularly delete images that are stored on their database so maybe Image shack have removed them. It could also be the servming account in which the images were held was deleted or they removed it.

Derri.. I understand all that hunny. These are all pictures ever posted in the forum.. some uploaded from pc's.. some using image shack, tiny pic, etc

many different photo hostings....

Now all of them no matter who originally hosted them says image shack....
and it appears on every single post .. even posts that had no images connected to them.

From the topic your friend posted above, I saw above it seems like Image Shack has removed them as it seems image shack seems to have removed them or blocked you site somehow. I saw when someone uploaded from tinypic that the image seemed to work.

I'm not sure why they aren't displaying.

EIDT: When did you say this bug with Image Shack started?

The image issue is not an issue with Forumotion, but with the image hosting site. You will need to upload the images to another host or replace them with other images.

this is not just a image hosting issue..
and most of the images that are missing were not hosted via the forum.

it is on all posts.....both new and old.. including post with no images attached...

big black screen saying image shack

there has to be a hack issues of some kind. more that then the image hosting side of it since it appears on every single post ever made..

No hack issue. Imageshack has been having issues lately. It could be that the person who created the theme used Imageshack. Could you post some screenshots of the issue?

Its likely an image shack link is in one of your forum buttons

ACP --> Display --> Pics Management --> Advanced

See if you have any image shack links and make sure to check all tabs.

that is part of the problem.. no owner around and has not been for a year except stuck head in after we checked it and it appears he looked in two months ago.

so were screwed basically with fixing this until we wait 4 months to try to move the forum to someone else thenwait the 2 to 4 months that will take?

no one has the ability to get to those controls.. the adminon the forum are actualy just moderators with moderator abilities.

Only administrators can access the administration panel. so if there is no administrators then you are stuck.

Sorry, but that is the only way. Administrators are the only group that has access to the administration panel. Have you tried contacting the founder?
