That is the Joomla User Administation function. The Kunena User Administration/User Profile Manager (K 1.5.11) does not have a delete feature.

If you are using K 1.5 you can delete users in Joomla (but we don't recommend it); we recommend that you disable the user accounts. We recommend that you use something else (cPanel, for example) to ban users.

If you choose to use K 1.6 you can ban users directly from Kunena.

Where spam originates from is anyone's guess, I'm sorry to say. Spam is spam and spam is independent of whatever forum product that you choose to use. This discussion topic has dozens of useful tips that can help. :)

Thanks,

Sorry but this raises a few more questions for me....

Is there any reason why you recommend not to delete users from the Joomla admin?

How do I "disable" the users accounts?

I've enabled Spam assassin in cPanel. is this what you are referring to, it seems to be the only thing available for Spam.

If i install version 1.6 does it simply upgrade the existing installation? I've only looked into this briefly but am happy to do so.

I've read on previous pages that you can manually approve users who try to register, because i have a very slow amount of traffic i'd like to have this option. how do I go about it.

So sorry for my tedious questions. You can see how NEW all this is to me but I'd rather ask and have you shaking your head at me than give up!! :)

Thanks again
Jo

Hello, I have implemented my new forum on my webpage www.berlin-studis.de and I see almost everyday new registered users. My problem is, that the users have no real email-adresses, always things like: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and so on. Nobody posted there anything but me, so I want to implement a kind of security module oder things like captcha plug-ins? Is there anybody who could tell me how to protect my forum from spam or from users registered by machines?

Thanks a lot
Dani

I second that.

The 1.6 RC1 version also has no built in Captcha system and I'm not keen to load another extention to manage it. It should be a built in system with Kunena like the 1.5 versions had.

Experience is that marvelous thing that enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.

Registrations are not handled b kunena they are handeled by JOOMLA to stop spam your best bet is to install registration validator 2 module and block all registration from the mail.ru email address and that will stop 90% of your spam users

With K1.6, you have just to install a plugin in Joomla! to have captcha, this plugin ca be used in others places than Kunena, a little doc about it : docs.kunena.com/index.php/How_to_proper_...aptcha_in_kunena_1.6

I don't provide support by PM, because this can be useful for someone else.

Im running Kunena on two of my sites www.charllaas.com and www.orthokcompany.com.

On www.OrthoKCompany.com we have a open section for the public to ask questions and a 'closed' section for members only.

On www.CharlLaas.com we have a complete 'open' board for members of the public to ask technical questions without having to become members of the site.

Thus in both cases I can't use the registration process to block spammers. For this reason I just need a simple Captcha system built into Kunena (option was available with K1.5) to block out 'Bots' and other automated spamming systems.
