2.5.2 is actually pretty stable if you add the various bug-fixes


I was once in a small plane while a friend piloting, he look over at me and said "the plane is still pretty stable with one of the engines down"

Were does one find these bug fixes?

You might want to reconsider installing ggn's anti-spam CAPTCHA hack. Wink

If you have under a dozen or so real people wanting to register in your forum on any given day, another effective alternative is to replace YaBB's default registration in favor of your own Register menu icon.

In doing so, after disabling YaBB's default registration, which will take away the Register menu tab, anyone clicking the Register menu tab you'll subsequently create will be redirected to a post in your forum that includes your email address, and simple instructions asking them to send you their chosen user ID and chosen displayed name.

In turn, you'll register that new member yourself, and provide them with a temporary password with instructions for them to change it to a password of their choice after they've logged in to their account.

But again, implementing ggn's anti-spam CAPTCHA hack should solve your problems if you want to give it a try. If you don't like using that registration method, you can always go back to what you have now.

  

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

I may have to do this, what's scary is these spammers are getting passed Spamfruit.

I've been thinking along those lines as a last resort

I noticed that started happening sometime last year not long after I had temporarily stopped using the CAPTCHA hack. I wanted to only use Spamfruits to see what might happen. But just like spam-bot automation had figured out a way to defeat regular CAPTCHA, it also figured out how to get past Spamfruits.

When I once again implemented ggn's anti-spam CAPTCHA hack, spam-bots were stopped cold.

I still use Spamfruits because it continues to stop a lot of spam-bots. Plus, I like the way it looks.

Happily, as I've mentioned before, ggn's anti-spam CAPTCHA hack allows for open registration without approvals, and it allows for guest posting as well.

  

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

Ok Bill, I'll give it a shot, ggn's hack is installed.

It would be nice if the leading and ending letters could be randomized

a bit OT but most small planes are still pretty stable with no engines and can glide and land.  Wink

yes unfortunately spammers just like junk mail are now just a part of life as there will always be someone ready to pay a spammer to put links to there website as a valid form of advertising and no matter how many spammers are taking down one more will just fill that spot the best way to fix it is to take down the chain of supply and demand with no supply there is no demand how to do this is every time a spammer posts a link to a website take that website offline every time a spammer posts business advertising that business is a fine or a penalty for 10,000 for every for each and every one so if there are two then that will be 20,000  Wink

I have a few mods installed will I lose the data from them. Will I have to reinstall them?

StopForumSpam Mod
SpamFruits 4 YaBB25
YaMMS 4 YaBB24
Users Today (disabled for now)
HTML in Posts for YaBB 2.5 AE
YaBB Advertisement
Reason Mod

I guess I can install in a separate directory to test it (yabb2-5) and change the directory's name (back to yabb2) once I know it works? I figure I'll have to change the file location in Paths.pl.

Then I just move the members and message directories?

Does that make sense?

Not for you and me just yet, but I believe letters can be randomized (or easily changed) while using the mod version of ggn's CAPTCHA hack (as Dandello has it installed in her test bed forum). With ggn's happy approval, Derek Barnstorm authored his CAPTCHA hack into a mod that will be part of YaBB's next release.

Meanwhile, as needed, those of us using this hack can change those letters as we want. Surprisingly, the good news is that I haven't needed to change any of the letters in over 2 years of using it. But at least I can if I need to make that change.

That's how I did it when I upgraded from the Gold 1.3.1 version I previously used to the 2.4 version I use now.

But I think there may be another step needed to make that compatible. I've since forgotten.

I'm now believing this could be a permissions issue. Check to see if the permissions for your Members folder is set at 755. Beyond that, check to see that permissions for your members are set at 644 (may need to be set at 666).

Also, and I think Dandello has already mentioned this, but it's possible you're running out of room on your server, which means YaBB isn't able to fully write all that's needed when somebody registers.

If you're running out of space on your server, it's probably because of automated backups your host is doing for you. Check this through FTP, and delete those older backups after you've saved them locally if you want them saved.

That was the very first thing I checked - all is good

I think so.
I'm still waiting for a real person to sign up, I usually get a bunch everyday.

Do you know if the data for Yamms will have to be input again by the members or will that carry over?

some times you don't need to it all depends on what parts of the yabb code are being edited and the mods making that edit it is as you don't need to use a live forum to test you can test as much as you want to and not have to worry about it
if I can get some free time and if you have not started on it I will setup a test 2.5.2 and try the mods in your list in it and see how that works out and will post back here for you.
