How to protect my forum from spam

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

Can it be set so I have to ok new members?

G'day, Mick, and welcome to Kunena.

Kunena is not responsible for user registration. User registration is a Joomla function. Joomla registration, itself, does not ask you if you want to OK new user registrations: you either allow everyone to register or you allow no-one to register (that is, you have to register people yourself). To get around this issue, you can install third-party user registration extensions for Joomla that allow you to challenge new user registrations. The Joomla Extensions Directory has details of many extensions that you can use: JomSocial and Community Builder are two popular extensions.

Some website seem to attract more spam than others. Fan sites, gaming sites, anime sites ... these seem to be prime targets for spam. Spammers aren't likely to lob into a site for discussing macrame pot-plant holders, for example. ;)

There are many things you can do to protect yourself against spam but, as I have written on many occasions before:

"The only truly effective remedy against spam is vigilance."

"Automatically" subscribe all members to be notified of any new messages

Category: General Feedback

G'day, erik, and welcome to Kunena.

Kunena does not have a function to, upon user registration, automatically subscribe all members to be notified of any new message posted to the forum. Kunena is not responsible for what happens during the user registration process.

After users register with your site they may choose to subscribe to forum material. If you specially want (or need) your users to be notified of new messages to the forum, you also need to educate your users and try to help them to use the facilities built into your forum.

K 1.6 allows users to subscribe to a category of discussion topics; users can later unsubscribe from their category subscriptions. If you forum has only one category, then if users subscribe to that category they will receive notification by email of all new messages posted to the whole forum. The question is, how do you get your users to subscribe to a forum category or categories?

When I wrote, 3 months ago, that I had some "news" about category subscriptions, I thought that the news was relevant to this discussion. You have asked for an update on the news. The update is that K 1.6 is now available to the general public and people can now assess for themselves whether these features are useful or not for their purposes.

I hope this helps.

Customizing the Registration Page

Category: K 1.5 Hacks, Tricks & Tips

This question has been asked before and, at this stage, there's not much help that I can suggest. I'm sure you didn't intend it in your question, but to clarify a couple of issues for a few of our newer users, Kunena isn't responsible for user registration or login. In this sense, perhaps the following statement might help point you in the right direction:

Kunena is not responsible for user registration, pure and simple. User registration is a Joomla function that may, or may not, be assisted by other components such as JomSocial or Community Builder or others. Kunena makes it possible to utilise these other components.

Some of these other extensions include the means to require users to read and acknowledge the site's terms of use (code of conduct, conditions and responsibilities, site policy or whatever you call it).

Perhaps, one day, Kunena will have its own user registration/profiling/social networking features but these do not exist at the moment in the form that many users seem to want. Does that help you? :)

As we informed you before, your problems have nothing to do with Kunena. Kunena is not responsible for user registration, login or logout: these are Joomla matters that may be assisted by other extensions (like JomSocial or Community Builder) but the fact remains that user registration issues have nothing to do with Kunena!

There may be many reasons why people are not receiving their account activation e-mail: maybe the emails are being sent to the users' junk mail? Maybe your Joomla website is not setup properly to send email? Have you explored these avenues of investigation?

This is not the Joomla help desk. Although we are frequently drawn into discussions about Joomla but we can only offer general advice because we are not "experts" in Joomla. I believe we have tried to show you where to get the information you need. I am genuinely trying to help you. If our help is inadequate for your needs, please visit forum.joomla.org and ask there.

[Topic closed by moderator - not Kunena problem] Problems with user registration confirmation email

Category: K 1.5 Common Questions Archive

I have a few suggestions to make:
  1. In future, when posting questions to this website (particularly when you post them to the Support category): K 1.5.x Support: Please read this first. This will save you time and it will save us time.
  2. Kunena is not responsible for user registration, pure and simple. User registration is a Joomla function that may, or may not, be assisted by other components such as JomSocial or Community Builder or others; you do not need these other components to run Kunena but Kunena makes it possible to utilise these other components. In short user registration - and whatever text is involved in the confirmation email sent to users - is not are not a Kunena issue.
  3. If you are using the standard Joomla user registration procedure, contact help.joomla.org about your issue. If you are using some other user registration procedure, contact the developer of that software. Kunena does not have a user registration procedure.
  4. Support for Kunena is limited to the latest stable release. Please upgrade from K 1.5.9.

Cannot register any users!

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

User registration is a bit trickier on a local PC - like one running WAMP or XAMPP - because you don't have a mail server. So how do you do the user confirmation? This is a Joomla issue. Please look at help.joomla.org to address your user registration issues.

Kunena is not responsible for user registration, pure and simple. I don't know any other way of saying this. You don't need any other components to register your users but, in a local server configuration, users cannot self-register. In other words (because you don't have a mail server) you have to do the user confirmation yourself. This is a Joomla User Administration issue - it has nothing to do with Kunena.

Cannot register any users!

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

G'day, sylther, and welcome to the forum. I sometimes have to remind new users about the policy relating to the Support category where you posted your question: K 1.5.x Support: Please read this first.

So, having said this, can you please fill in the missing blanks: What version of Kunena are you using? What Kunena template are you using? What version of Joomla are you using?

Many new users are unaware that Kunena is not responsible for user registration or login or logout: these are Joomla functions. Kunena is not responsible for user registration, pure and simple. User registration is a Joomla function that may, or may not, be assisted by other components such as JomSocial or Community Builder or others. Kunena makes it possible to utilise these other components. In short, these are not Kunena matters.

Can you please demonstrate how you feel that your problems tie-in with Kunena? What is this "registration page" that keeps "refreshing". Who designed or developed it?

Category: K 1.5 Common Questions Archive

G'day, Nadia, and welcome to the forum. There are a few issues here that we've canvassed many times before but there also seem to be some basic functions of your Joomla website that are not functioning 100% correctly. I have sent you a PM; if you like we could discuss these things off-line in order to get your problems resolved as quickly as possible. :)

As I sometimes have to remind new members who post to this forum,
    The
Support category, where you posted your question, is intended to be used to address problems with the unmodified core Kunena software - not to ask how to change it or to discuss problems people might encounter with third-party software extensions - or to report defects that you are have found - not to ask questions about how to use the software normally or how to use Joomla normally. We give these support topics higher priority than other topics, particularly around the time when there is a new release of Kunena (as there was only a couple of days ago), in order to ensure that defects are not passed on to other users. I have moved your topic to a more appropriate section.We also get many questions relating to the subject of user registration and login and, in very broad terms, I will repeat the advice I have given in the past: Kunena doesn't actually do login or user registration.

Kunena is not responsible for user registration, pure and simple. User registration is a Joomla function that may, or may not, be assisted by other components such as JomSocial or Community Builder or others. Kunena makes it possible to utilise these other components. In short, these are not Kunena matters.

However, the registration and login links at the top the Kunena forum pages do present unusual challenges to new users and I completely sympathise with the confusion that ensues. There are ways that you can use to overcome some of these issues - and I'm happy to discuss them with you - but I agree that this is a significant shortcoming of Kunena. There is light at the end of the tunnel insofar as these problems have been eradicated in the yet-to-be-released K 1.6 ... so you may have to be patient a little while longer for a permanent solution.

No user login desired

Category: K 1.5 Common Questions Archive

Thank you, Cerberus, for making my job here so much easier! :)

I just want to add a short comment to this topic - and for the benefit of others who may also be interested in future: Kunena doesn't actually do login or user registration.

I will repeat what I have written elsewhere ( Registration Page Issues ):

As I am "fond" of telling people ;), Kunena is not responsible for user registration, pure and simple. User registration is a Joomla function that may, or may not, be assisted by other components such as JomSocial or Community Builder or others. Kunena makes it possible to utilise these other components.

Therefore if you want to allow or prevent users from registering, you achieve these objectives via Joomla (see help.joomla.org to find out more about that) - these are not Kunena matters.

Your forum will thrive or fail because of the content that your users give, not whether they have to register or not. If your users are confused then let them ask you questions and wait for the questions to be asked before you worry unnecessarily about the possibilities. Does that seem like good advice?

CB CAPTCHA does not appear on Kunena Login form?

Category: K 1.0 and K 1.5 miscellaneous third-party extensions archive

If I understand your problem correctly, you are saying that you are experiencing a problem with users being able to login to your website. Is that correct?

As I am "fond" of telling people ;), Kunena is not responsible for user login or registration. User login and registration are Joomla functions that may, or may not, be assisted by other components such as JomSocial or Community Builder or others. Kunena makes it possible to utilise these other components.

We have had many discussions about how well Kunena integrates the registration/login/logout functions with JomSocial and CB but, setting those aside, I strongly doubt that Kunena is involved in your problem. Your problem concerns CB Captcha which has nothing at all to do with Kunena.

Please refer your questions about CB Captcha to the people who are responsible for supporting that software: www.joomlapolis.com

Antispam and CAPTCHA

Category: K 1.5 Common Questions Archive

As a general comment, Kunena is not responsible for user account registration (nor user login, either). Therefore the setting that you referred to, Kunena's CAPTCHA-powered "Spam protection system", has nothing to do with your user registration problems. This setting only has a purpose if you allow anonymous, "guest" posting privileges on your forum.

What specific problems are your users encountering with account creation?

* Go to: seo-web-design-co.com (No problem there)
* Click on: Forum (No problem there, either)
* Click Register (The registration form appears)
* Fill out registration. (For security reasons we do not register ourselves at users websites, but I assume that this function works as you have described.)
* It takes you to: seo-web-design-co.com/component/user/ where is says, "Welcome to the registered user area of our site." (OK, so users have registered. Sounds like everything is working as it should.) But have users activated their registration and have they logged in to your website? :unsure:

Here is what I wrote on the subject about an hour ago:

I have said this, and others have also said this, on many occasions: Kunena is not responsible for how users register or login to your website. That's the start, the middle and (pretty much) the end of the discussion. Joomla handles the way your users register and login. The Joomla registration process may be helped by third-party extensions like Community Builder or JomSocial or other extensions if you have installed them. :)

Kunena displays the "Please login or register" options at the top of the forum pages. Sometimes this works for people and sometimes it doesn't quite meet their particular needs. Everyone is different. Sometimes people want to use this area for other purposes; sometimes they just want the whole thing to go away altogether. Again, there's no commonality among the different kinds of requests we get on this topic. However, from a support perspective, the feature (that is, the login/registration links incorporated into Kunena) that you've referred to, this actually works. B)

Can users, who register at your website, login after they've registered and activated their accounts?

When your users have activated their accounts they can login and they should be able to post messages to your Kunena forum.

I'm sorry. I don't understand your problem.

If you are having a user registration problem, please understand that this is not a Kunena support issue. You should seek assistance from the Joomla help forum . Kunena is not responsible for user registration.

If you are having a problem with users logging in, again that's primarily a Joomla issue and the solution may also lie in the same place.

If I have misunderstood your question, please let me know. :)
