It will be under 'general admin' and the click 'configuration'. You will see email activation, just click either admin or user validation. If this doesnt solve the problem post back here.

i put admin validation on, i still get them, u can only ban users if they exist!

but, ive stopped getting the emails saying "new account" matt can u help on this 1 plz?

but i still get them, allways from oponros.com, im sick of it.

then cant post cos they dont get activated til i click the link in the email i dont get!!:confused:

Anyway, just stick admin validation on, that will stop them posting.

U cant ban a username unless it exists, no point of it anyway, they aint gonna use the same name twice!

another way is this...

take off all validation, wait for one to post, go to the post, DONT DELETE IT YET, click IP, get the Ip and ban that.

Then delete it. (the post)

Tell me what happens

oh and Matt said he can install a "magic" thing:confused:to stop them, i dunno lol.

Matt?

Matt?

Is that a support request or a help reply? If it's support - new topic.


And yeah, just turn on email validation and you'll be fine.

If we email a single forum, we mention that we are only emailing a specific forum and the title will start with "Attention:" :)

Don't worry, we had this issue with the support forum, until i turned email validation on.
