Posts not showing - on "hold"

Category: K 5.2 Support

On further investigation I note that "hold=1" seems to be set for posts that were moderated (eg. spammers).

But in my latest example the new post from a valid normal user just never appears - it goes straight to hold.

Mass unsubscribe possible?

Category: General questions and how-tos

I have a site that originally had category subscriptions enabled. We now limit subscriptions to topics only based on user feedback.

Unfortunately, the older category subscriptions, even though now disabled, still send out notification emails. Is there a way to administratively eliminate all of the existing category subscriptions? Even if it needs to be done in the database, that would be a solution.

Second, in light of all the various anti-spam laws coming online, is there way for the notification email to have the required unsubscribe link, and provide a page that gives an easy way for a user to unsubscribe from any or all subscriptions?

Thnks in advance for any and all suggestions!

I use R Antispam (Rantmil) and its saves me lot of time in stopping BOT registrations. Majority of mine are BOTS using two capital letters in the user name.

Bots or real humans?

Hi Bill,
you could look at ochSimpleFirewall . A normal firewall tries to stop spammers while spamming, ochSimpleFirewall stops spammers / abusers / mallware / etc. who are known to spam / abuse and been caught by others (stopforumspam, cleantalk, etc.)
If you would like to test to see if it works for your use case, please let me know.
For me it does miracles, not only on kunena, but also on contact form etc.

Bots or real humans?

Category: General user contributions

If you allow user register, a better captcha will not help. Because of the Corona crisis, many human users have time to spread spam posts. A possibility would be the option "Moderate New Users = 1" (tab Security). Then must the first post of new users approved by a moderator. Only if the first post is approved, will the next posts automatically published.

My site sees 10 registrations from spammers or bots for every real new member. I use a Captua challenge but somehow I need a more robust registration process. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Tut mir leid, aber da kann ich dir nicht helfen. Du solltest den Administrator dieser betreffenden Webseite fragen, warum er eine Spamüberprüfung verlangt.

How can I unsubscribe users to avoid email spam?

Category: General Questions Archive

Go in the backend to Kunena -> Users and mark the certain users in the checkbox. On top, you have two options: "Delete all Category subscriptions" and "Delete all Topic subscriptions".
If you click on a username, you can also see what the user has subscribed.

How can I unsubscribe users to avoid email spam?

Category: General Questions Archive

Some users register with email address @Yahoo.com and @Yandex.com so their emails are either deleted or their mailboxes get full after some months. So these users have subscribed to forum topics, thus we get error email messages from the server.

How is it possible to unsubscribe those users from those forum topics? Because we can't contact them somehow, as most of them do not write their full names.

Thank you.

Pass IP of banned user with NO POSTINGS to Stopforumspan?

Category: General questions and how-tos

Maybe you find here an extension. extensions.joomla.org/instant-search/?je...query%5D=IP%20Logger
But you will never prevent real spam users when registration is allowed. I know the tricks of the spam users, and they are a lot, but the IPs are rarely the same.

Pass IP of banned user with NO POSTINGS to Stopforumspan?

Category: General questions and how-tos

Hello all,

On our forum we are getting a vast amount of fake registrations. Most of these users never post anything, but in their signature they refer to commercial websites (HP Printer Support / Essay writing service / etc)

I've signed up to Stopforumspam some years ago and activated the function in Kunena.
If I ban a member without postings, but with a spam signature I get the message "The report can't be sent because no IP given". When the user did make a post I get a confirmation he has been reported to the Stopforumspam DB.

Is it possible that upon banning a user without a post the registration IP address is passed on to Stopforumspam also? Sometimes the spammers are smart and even wait a few days after registration and then add the commercial info into the signature of the profile.....

User subscribed to category, cancel subscription to topic doesn't work

Category: K 5.1 Support

A subscription should always be voluntary in a forum. If you add users without their consent to category subscriptions, it's spam.
I've tested it, unsubscribe should work without problems unless you use an extension for auto subscription.
Have you enabled "Check Subscription Box" in the configuration? When this option is "Yes" it's possible that user overlook the check mark, when he replies and subscribe the topic again. But this option can users set to No in their profiles too.

The suggestion of limitation of # of mails doesn't hold since my provider (hosting some 860.000 accounts) claims that the algoritm to check against the limit does not delay anything; if it would, they would have many more complaints.......

Thanks for the topic, there is a setting in Kunena when enabled which can cause delay : it's the setting under security which prevent to put URL in title or message

Sorry, I meant that I never get messages about new replies.

If the previous user mentioned they receive the notification with delay, I no longer receive notifications at all.
Of course, I've checked out the spam box.

In the Joomla! configuration, do-you have used the button "send test mail" and the mail has been right received ?
