Solved Help with forum users..

Post by VF on November 1st 2010, 3:26 am

Basically, I keep getting random users joining all with the "@sina.com" e-mail address. Can't get an IP to ban them, so im just deleting them, as their "Visitor messages" keep promoting a hockey jersey's shop. Is there a way I can stop this, or even limit how many users from one IP adress can make multiple accounts?

Any suggestions on what to do, would be greatly appreciated..

Thanks,

Hi,

Yes there is many things to do about this, Ill list them for you Very Happy
1) Ban the email address
Admin panel >> Users & Groups > Ban control > Ban an Email
Insert *@sina.com . The '*' acts as a wild card to anything before it.
If you know the IP address (Which you can get if you see them online at the same time as you, you can olook at the homepage of the admin panel, locate the user & IP), then hit the ban an IP button, and insert the IP address there.

You can set your forum to "user confirmation" which requires a user to click on a link in their email account to activate their account.
Users & Groups > User option > Account activation

Limit the IP registrations per user/day
Admin panel >> general > Security > IP address accounts creation limit, for each 24 hours :
