Search Results for 'spam'
On the widget for Sitewide Notices, once you close it, it never shows up again. When I want to let new users know there is no spam allowed, I don’t want them to just close the message, because they will never see it again. That is a no no for trying to stop members from doing things, because if you are warning them that their account will be deleted, they can just say they never saw the message.
Is there a way you can have an option in BuddyPress or in the widget for an option to either have members close or not to close the sitewide notices. There is no option for it anywhere on BuddyPress at all. I even looked in the widget code, and nothing. I think if this is as important as spam warnings, this is an important feature.
Topic: Invalid activation link fix?
Just had to fix this on a shared hosting account @ https://www.a2hosting.com, they run a spam filter called https://www.barracuda.com/products/spamfirewall
what this does it follow external links in any outgoing emails sent from the server in question. So when buddypress sends out it’s activation link like so : http://example.com/activate?key=7678978978978789 it gets clicked on by the spam filter activating the account and rendering the activation link useless…
I think this is the ongoing issue with invalid activation links that some users are experiencing. I suggest we move the activate link to a actual button on page that needs to be physically clicked?
My temp fix was to add a deny from all into the .htaccess denying the server access to it’s self.
This is here for reference since I see I’m not the only one experiencing this problem…
Topic: Preventing spam registrants?
It seems I have received 3 registrants in the last two days that are not legit. Is there a way to prevent this?
Topic: Spam user
I am interested to something I have noticed.
A user registers, but is “never active” but still manages to create a spam group and add a lengthy description ect ect.
Is this something wrong, or something that is known to be possible?
Topic: Member Page Blank
Alright, so I’m having a bit of a weird issue. My site went live about 24 hours ago – before then, everything was working fine. We went into a “freeze period”, no plugin or coding changes. Went live, and after a bit the members page decides to stop work.
Mysite.com/members takes an insane amount of time to load (despite all other pages being fine). Mysite.com/members/?s=searchterm is also having the same problem. Mysite.com/members/username is fine.
Once the page loads, its either entirely blank (just the page name and sidebar), or it loads the header (member search, order by menu, all members and my friends buttons), and one or two user listings as normal with blankness after.
My only possible explanation is that we did somehow manage to register 3,000 non-spam accounts in 24 hours, and the page is struggling to load it (even though only 2,200 are considered active on buddypress). But all other pages are working fine (including activity, which basically never stops updating). Anybody know how to fix it?
Topic: can't repair search page
I recently updated BuddyPress and now it keeps giving me the following error message:
The following active BuddyPress Components do not have associated WordPress Pages: Search Page. Repair
I’ve tried making a Search page and selecting it on the settings page, but it refuses to accept it. One thing I noticed was when I made a Search page (mydomain.com/search) I couldn’t view it, it just took me to mydomain.com. I tried changing its url to mydomain.com/searchbp and I could view it, but it still wouldn’t take in the settings.
Not sure if this matters, but I should also point out that I don’t use BuddyPress’s register/activate pages. I modified it awhile back (don’t ask me how, I don’t remember) to use the default WordPress ones because I use a plugin to verify their username is also a valid Minecraft username to prevent spam bots.
Buddypress 2.2 was just released today with a couple of great new features.
Are there any plans to add user blocking/ignoring (silent block) to private messaging to address spammer and harassment issues? This is really one of the must have missing features for Buddypress.
Am successfully inserting a post via a plugin into a website on which buddypress is active.
The post comes in properly and is properly recorded on the home/post page.
these posts are NOT recorded in the sitewide /users activity streams.
$post_id = wp_insert_post( array( 'post_author' => $user_id, 'post_title' => $post_title, 'post_content' => $apost_content, 'post_category' => $category_ids, 'tags_input' => $tags, 'post_status' => 'publish' ), $wp_error );
1) any ideas how to remedy same.
2) I understand that as per
I should be able to insert content into activity directly
I thought i could insert the same content into Activity directly with something like:
$activity_id = bp_activity_add( array( 'action' => 'A link from NewsSite', // The activity action - e.g. "Jon Doe posted an update" 'content' => $post_content, // Optional: The content of the activity item e.g. "BuddyPress is awesome guys!" 'component' => false, // The name/ID of the component e.g. groups, profile, mycomponent 'type' => false, // The activity type e.g. activity_update, profile_updated 'primary_link' => 'false', // Optional: The primary URL for this item in RSS feeds (defaults to activity permalink) 'user_id' => bp_loggedin_user_id(), // Optional: The user to record the activity for, can be false if this activity is not for a user. 'item_id' => false, // Optional: The ID of the specific item being recorded, e.g. a blog_id 'secondary_item_id' => false, // Optional: A second ID used to further filter e.g. a comment_id 'recorded_time' => bp_core_current_time(), // The GMT time that this activity was recorded 'hide_sitewide' => false, // Should this be hidden on the sitewide activity stream? 'is_spam' => false // Is this activity item to be marked as spam? ), );
but that didn’t happen!
Any help much appreciated.
Should be learning this stuff faster, but i’m not !!!
