Solved Spam from guests?

Post by TR on June 21st 2010, 3:46 pm

Hello,
all of my admins recieved this PM today from a guest, which is obviously spam. How can we prevent this from happening in the future? How can guests even send PMs?
Thanks,
-TR

May i ask have you got your settings set so members can delete there acounts ?
If you have then that will show you how a guest can post PM's.
They make an account then Delete it when Done with spaming your site Wink
Please do the following.

Admin panel>>
Users & Groups >>

  • Users options
Allow members to unsubscribe : Set to NO then SAVE

  • :Edit: You may want to ban the Email address and if you can get the ip the ip address aswell Wink
Hope i was of some help.
