I would hazard a guess that it's still a related problem - the registrants are putting in names that have unacceptable characters in them, bolluxing up the .pre files AND bolluxing up the errorlog when it tries to document the error.

Will do that the next time I see the file is corrupt. In the past I have just deleted the contents without saving the old file.

I wouldn't be surprised if that is the case - I'm a more than a bit nervous about upgrading. Do you think that will cure the problem?

Can't guarantee it BUT, when my 'working' forum was on 2.4 way back when, I saw a lot of these. Haven't seen one in ages since going to 2.5.2.

Our 2.4 no longer has this problem, and I think it's because I followed Dandello's previous advice about how to fix this (evidenced here).

Ironically, that advice was actually posted in this topic back on June 9th (referenced here). Remember? Wink

  

Morning, noon, or night, have a great one!

In this case I think other bad characters (as in symbols) are sneaking through, too.

can you check this post out and see if it's the same errorlog.txt corruption http://www.yabbforum.com/community/YaBB.pl?num=1351872351/14#0


I followed the directions from this post
http://www.yabbforum.com/community/YaBB.pl?num=1351872351/32#32
And almost 24hrs later not a single problem. ~ Thanks!

What if any boxes should be checked in the referrer security section?

RSS needs to be checked, and Print. (Those do get legitimately called from outside the domain.) The others really shouldn't need to be checked unless you know that someone is showing your recent topics or such on their website and you're okay with that.

Just so you know - my personal take is to start as strict as possible and loosen up when/if members come back and say they've started having problems. On my own forums the only things I have checked is RSS, print and the 3 loginout routines and that's because, on one forum, I have a secondary domain pointing to the primary domain and that causes issues when being forwarded from. Most people won't have that problem.

And I should add - when I say strict I don't mean to have everything turned off - I'm merely referring to not allowing much interaction between YaBB and the rest of the world except when it comes through 'proper' channels - the program hosted on my domain.

Admittedly, this is a safe way to operate a forum. Still ...

Dandello is most certainly an expert on how YaBB operates. However, I respectfully disagree have a different opinion than she has on this one because I know what's working in our forum.

I've seen YaBB forums be so restrictive with the way they use Referrer Security that those forums become very user unfriendly. Particularly when a forum doesn't have an easy way to send a message to its administrator or to the site's webmaster, and a great many forums do not provide this, it's not likely that problems will be reported. People will simply stay away.

Hint: The better your forum is at stopping spam-bots, the more generous you can be in allowing actions from outside domains.

Particularly with the use of ggn's anti-spam CAPTCHA hack, Referral Security Checking is no longer necessary despite what "experts" will tell you (you can read more about that here). I've disabled it entirely in our forum without any problems.

Keep in mind that I'm not a YaBB expert, just a regular admin with a fair knowledge of how YaBB works, and yet, the forum I operate no longer has problems with spam-bots. So if I can do this, pretty much anybody can.

If you've noticed, there seem to be quite a few YaBB forums that have registration disabled (registration is processed via email). You could do that, too, but how restrictive do you really want to be?

Edited:
You can see how this anti-spam CAPTCHA works in Dandello's YaBB 2.5.4 Alpha test bed forum (on the 2nd page of her registration form). Thankfully, she's included this as a mod in YaBB's next, and newest version, of which she's the lead developer (this mod has been authored/updated by Derek Barnstorm with ggn's happy approval).

Bill

I've always only had 4 or five boxes checked.

To be honest I have no clue what most of them do and I could never find any reference to what they are for. Only a few of them are self evident by their name. So in my ignorance I didn't allow very many. I have a very active forum so it seems it didn't hurt.

ggn's anti-spam CAPTCHA looks like you delete the first and last two characters. I can see where that would confuse some of the people that join my forum  Cheesy But that's another story for another thread.  

Thanks for the input.

Edited:
I just notice Dandello test forum is running 2.5.4. I'm considering upgrading, should I wait for the new release? I really nervous about doing this in the first place then finding out that there is a new version right around the corner

Whatever is working for you, that's the way to continue. Cool

As for future upgrades, Dandello is the go to person for that.

Like our forum, you're using the 2.4 version. YaBB 2.5.2 is the latest release, but I wouldn't recommend upgrading until the one after that (currently 2.5.4 although that may change to version 2.6 at some point... not sure how that works).

Bill is right - 2.5.2 is the most current 'official' version available. 2.5.4 is still in development and is very unstable at the moment.

2.5.2 is actually pretty stable if you add the various bug-fixes which take care of some glitches that crept in and some old bugs that weren't uncovered until it went the 'live' testing.
