Re: Captcha needs upgrading

Looks like the v2 reCaptcha mod has an issue (PHP compatibility) so I've disabled recaptcha for now and will rely on simple image verification.

vBulletin v3 is end of life, so will probably need...

Re: Captcha needs upgrading

Yeah, thought I had that fixed with the new v2 keys but apparently vBulletin dropped support for v1 captcha from v3 and v4 of the forum software.

I'll need to move reCaptcha to an add-on mod to...

No changes to the setup regarding login timeouts. Make sure you check the little box "Remember Me" next time you log in. This will ensure you remain logged in at all times, you don't even need to...

Over the years I've considered enabling photos to be hosted on the site for the above reasons. I know bandwidth was a concern in the early days of the forum and choices were made long ago about not...

Re: PM message storage

Shouldn't be a problem, I'll have a look at bumping the limit up.

Re: Why Everything Capitalised?

No, I got his drift, just can't see it as a 'always' or 'every post' deal, yes some posts (or titles) are All First Letter In Caps, but not everyone of them.

It certainly isn't the forum doing...

Re: Banner dot

It is (was) a corrupt gif file. It should be a 468x60 GIF image, but obviously not displaying correctly. I've replaced the banner image with a good copy. Dot is now the banner image again.

Re: PM notifications via email

Re: PM notifications via email

Gmail recently started "classifying" email, ie; bulk, social media, adverts, etc. So they may be filtering in a way that some gmail users are not accustomed to. If you look in your gmail interface...

Re: PM notifications via email

Gmail wasn't denying delivery, just rate limiting the delivery. Apparently the IP my new server was assigned was previously used for spamming. So i'm having to deal with improving the email sender...

Re: Forum Software

vbulletin, 3.x we've got a license for 4.x and 5.x but I've not had the time to migrate up to the newer versions.

Re: How do we get people to read the Trading Post rules?

No doubt the rules & policies are a burden for sure, but those were self imposed! :-)

Re: How do we get people to read the Trading Post rules?

vbClassifieds isn't an active product anymore, and the copy I had no longer works. You have something that will work with vb3 & vb4, and soon to be vb5? It's been a while since I bothered to look...

I just received this email, thought I'd post this on the off chance Ron is here or any of you know him.

My dad always wanted him to...

Short answer "no" :grin:

Longer answer, use the 'mark forums read' link at the bottom of the forum main page this is basically the same thing, just not on the "new Posts" page.

Correct, there are 'free' versions for both, some limits apply to the free software, the paid versions are pretty reasonable and are very handy for smartphone users.

Re: Automatic log off problem

What happens if you check the box "remember me" next to your login name and password. If you hit refresh does the forum still log you out?
