Yes. I've sent out several emails and also posted a reminder on the current forum so hopefully we should get a few testers tonight or tomorrow morning.

Registering was straight forward but what systems are in place to prevent trouble makers from posting? I know that on other sites you first register a valid email address, then you are sent a link to that email address so you can fully register. Does this forum check that the email address is valid before you are able to post?

Hiya Boys!

Finally!

What we can do, if Mark's allowed it, is we can ban certain IP's, also with this forum, to avoid people just re-registering when banned, he can have it so that instead of being instantly registered again, he can a) ban certain email addresses and b) get an activation link sent to the email address that's being registered.

On the admin page we see we can simply click a button and immediately get the ip address of any poster.

I think I've managed to ban guest posting now (although I may wish to reactivate that at some point), so you will have to log in in future.

Ian. do you know how to turn on email activation of people signing up?

New fangled forum

Postby Locki » Fri Aug 11, 2006 9:09 am

looks good, easy to use, and sign up wasn't any hastle. Might be worth switching on email comfirmation as default when registering though?

The quote feature is a massive bonus don't you think Locki?

As you can see aswell, Pete has made a sticky. You can also make announcements and moderators can lock topics if they prefer not to delete them.

I also suggest we make a couple more subforums, one where it can be a free for all Chorley FC off topic forum which Guest's can post in. And ones such as match reports, team and ground subforums.

Good idea about email confirmation. Does anyone know how to do it?

Also, are you asked for a captcha (entering some text displayed on an image) when signing up?

Have received an email re new password. What happened to my chosen one?

On the profile what's an ICQ number? AIM?
Signature?
I assume from other's profiles these are not necessary.

AIM and ICQ are instant messaging applications like Microsoft Messenger. A signature is one of those annoying things you sometimes see at the bottom of posts. I have banned them as they annoy me intensely and clutter the forum up. :x

ICQ and AIM is an Instant Messenger program. If you dont know what it is then you dont have one.

Sticky is a post that will always be at the top

Mark

Email confirmation should be in the Administrators Panel or whatever it's called. There is such a thing as Ive had to click an activation link when registering for a phpBB forum before

Also, not sure if this can be done, think Ive seen it before. When registering, can it be sent to the Administrator to approve it?
It would stop people registering with pseudonyms and cuts out any anonymity.

But that's only a suggestion. :idea:

Quote Quite Good

Postby Locki » Fri Aug 11, 2006 1:55 pm

Yep, it's a good feature, but not as good as being able to edit your own postings!

or other people's! (only Peter and I can do that I hope).

On the page that lists the subjects, when it says Views 100 and odd, what is it referring to?
