That has started again with the pages cutting off? I thought you said it was fixed for a while. HB reported having this same problem the other day too. I've no idea if this will work, but if you change your Look and Layout settings to show fewer posts per page, does that fix it? I've never experienced this problem myself. Can you post a screen shot of what it looks like? Maybe Brin could share a screen shot at this SMF Admin forum she goes to and see if they can figure out what is causing it.
Can't because it's at work when it does it.  It worked marginally better for a couple days last time she messed with it, but it has never been 100 percent since the last software change.  I quit talking about it because it felt too much like complaining.  lol  I wish jackie could have been here while she was up north.  Oh well.

Also, I don't have a Quick Reply button. If you turn that feature off, does that fix it?
I can't post at all without quick reply.  I have no post box or buttons whatsoever when I hit "reply."

Well I've turned off and uninstalled everything to do with stopping spammers.. I've also given the site another optimisation...  :th_itchingbutt:

Can't tell if it's helped til I'm at work.  I won't be back there til Wednesday.  I should note that internet explorer is all I have access to at work.

Probably an older one. I have no control over updating company computers.

Should also mention this forum runs on php code... not html.  :th_3_8_14:

The page-cutting-off issue is weird, because it seems to be limited to select machines/locations. I seriously doubt Jackie uses an old version of Internet Explorer, so I'd guess it's not a browser issue. So it happens to JD at work, to Jackie at work and home, to HB at home (?), and to Changeling at home (not sure if it's still happening to her). Is there something in common with all of these machines?

Pup, aww look at all those sad embarrassed smileys :th_11-7: That's strange.

I also have no way of sending pms at work.  I could live with the quick reply feature, even though I have no text editor when I use that and have to manually input code.  But, the no pm prevents me from playing a special role while at work.

In the 24 hours since removing the spammer's blocks I now have 21 members awaiting approval... that's not including the 20-odd I rejected just yesterday.  :th_snf50:

Was it easier before when you disabled registration?

The problem with disabling the registration is it makes it too difficult for legitimate posters to register. That's what's so maddening about the spammers... most of my time administrating this forum is time spent because of them.  :baseball bat:

On the plus side... this is a pretty much guaranteed block that stops them from successfully registering.  :th_itchingbutt:

We should just have some sort of code word to put in in order to register.  You could email it to all of us members, and if we wanted to invite someone, all we would have to do is share the code word.  That would take the burden off of you having to approve/add members, would keep spammers from being able to register, and legitimate people could still get in fairly easily.

That's an idea... I can easily post it in the semi-private room... how to implement it...  :th_itchingbutt:

Yup.  There's an idea.  Post it in the room where the public doesn't have access with instructions for inviting people, then all we have to do is give them the password which allows them to register.  You would also have to disable allowing the public to contact you though.
