Keep Trolling Guests From Rejoining And Posting

Post by michaelfinnie on October 9th 2010, 9:38 pm

recently a lot of people have registered under names milkydischarge and rageman(insertnumberhere)

1. i changed it now so only admin can allow new users
2. those people have custom proxy's so they can create multiple IP addresses and i cant ban them all
3. i need to know how to keep guests from posting on my forum so i can make it safe, fun, and secure

set the permissions for each forum so that guests cannot post on them.

If you allow guest to post then that's what is going to happen. Spam.

Go to your Admin Panel>General>Forums>Categories & Forums. Click onto the X/tick (Permissions) & uncheck Guests for everything except View Forums & Read Topics. Repeat this for each of your forums.

It is tiresome & time consuming but is worth it for the safety of your forum.
