Administration 3rd Party !!! Empty Administration 3rd Party !!!

Post by richard liggins on March 2nd 2010, 11:35 am

Hi

I have been running a forum for just over 18 months (559 members) I have 8 Moderators and one other Administrator to help us out when I am away on holiday etc.

Today I went on the forum and found our main page image that has been on the front page for over 3 months changed to another one.

This image must have put on by someone who has managed to get into the Administration side of the forum. My friend (other Administartor) for many many years says it was not him who has done this.

Any ideas please as to how it has happend and more importently how to prevent in the future.

Kind regards
Richard

Hi Sanket

It was changed to a young man just sat looking and posing..

Look at the administration tab and all looks in order on that side..

from logging off last night to going on today I had 21 members on the forum none of them are Moderators or would know what to do if they got into teh admin side as I know all from my Army days..

I think, if there was any change made by any of the admin or a probable misuse of the admin account. It would have been recorded in that tab.

As off now just change the image to whatever you want. It could be a glitch on the image hosting site.

Hi Sanket

Thanks for your time and trouble getting back to us..

The images I had on is back on the forum now..

Hopefully it was just a glitch but just strange as it would have thought have to be put in manually to change the image..

Still itis back on and thanks again
