Is there a way of closing the forum when i know all admin and moderators will not be online, i have suffered a previous porn spam attack and want to close my forum to avoid this happening again.

Thanks blackeye

Hi Cali,
To avoid shutting your forum down, you can delete the posts which include porn and then ban the member. Little things like this do not mean you have to shut your forum down. Or you could put your forum on construction and during that time delete all the porn posts and re-open your forum to visitors again.
There is an way of closing your forum but try and take this idea.

crystal is right, try that way first. Why should you lose all that work you have done creating a forum. Just doesnt seem fair.

I agree. You shouldnt lose all your hard work just because of people who come onto your forum and do stupid stuff like that.

All the porn was deleted within an hour of me noticing it had been done. i have been told that the person who did it will do the same again next time i organize a day trip away and my forum is not being used by admin or moderators. i have done my best to check each person who registers. I just dont fancy coming back to hundreds of porn links and videos.

Do i just make the forum under construction or on holiday ?

Thanks
