guests users

Post by morningstar107 on September 1st 2010, 4:28 pm

i wonder if someone can help me

i have the forum set up so that only members can post or reply to the topics, you have to join to be able to post

i went into the forum today and see that guest and annonymous have managed to answer a post and to place something in.. how is this possible as i know i have set this up properly?
what i find even more confusing is, the topic that was replied to can only be seen by members, a few topics can be seen by non members but this particular topic was one thats members only?

thankyou

Check your member list to see if you have 'annonymous' as a member. The 'guest' is probably somebody who quit your forum. If a member quits, their posts remain, and the poster becomes 'guest'.

hi boffer
thankyou for your speedy response

ok i dont have an annonymous member on the members list, i have to ok the account before they can post in the forums

plus members cant quit unless i delete them so im really baffled as to how this can be?

I have this problem with my forum, anybody can post under a username, it just reuires you to confirm some digits before dispalying your post. You then get listed as your username, with guest underneath. In my settings I have ticked the admin approval for new members box.

Set the permissions so as guests are not able to reply to topics or open a new thread.

General>categories and forums
Click on any forum name
Permissions tab
Set the permissions so as guests are not able to reply to topics or open a new thread.

Repeat it for all forums.
