OK, you can keep it. ;) I have banned the poster, though, so he will have to go someplace else to learn English.

Back home now. Since I made those security changes I have had just one person applying for membership. I've just replied with the usual activation mail. it remains to see whether that is a spammer or not.

The violent flood of spam started right after the forum had been upgraded. I wonder if some of the security settings were in place before that, but were overwritten somehow in the upgrade process.

Thanks for your help. I will remove thr captcha and instead create a third scurity question, as I also had problems with the captcha myself.
'Denco'has been sent a mail to activate the account, so that we can see the whole process.

I don't know how Ken did it, but I have been sending out those activating mails ever since I took over. But that is apparently not enough. I just yesterday discovered the further protection bu adding the captcha and the security questions.
So far it seems to work well.

Thanks for testing. I will remove those test posts in a day or two.
I found a way to set a 'CAPTCHA', you know one of those things with some jumbled up letters and numbers with some lines going through, and also a place to set security questions. I actually thought this would have been done long time ago, before I got involved in this.
I registered myself with a different user name and address and found that the captcha was quite difficult to read, so I may remove it and add a third security question instead. Anyway, I have seen no spam since I did this.
Would some of you try to go through the registering process, to see if it seems too difficult?

If what I've done works correctly, you must make more than two posts fairly soon after each other. I didn't want to makeit too cumbersome for you. ;) Just post in this thread a couple of test messages. i'll get rid of them afterwards.

Also, it would be interesting to see what happens if one or two of you would try to register, under a different user name and mail address. And please post here which user name you use, so that I can let you in.

Thank you, kodydog.

I found some settings that I applied, and that might help. The change may, however, also affect your own posting, in that you may have to answer security questions. Try it out, and let me know what you think.

I'm away from home to a funeral and am staying with friends, so I cannot log in here as often as I can from home. I have just chucked out some 40+ spam posts. I plan now, for a period, not to accept any new forum members who try to register, to see if that helps.

You may have noticed that posts from the last couple of days are not here any more. That is because our web host had to restore a backup from before Nov 1st. Sorry about that.

That seems to have got me into trouble. I tried the same as you did, and all of a sudden I was back on the browser index page. I'm not sure if it has to do with the forum or with my computer, need to do some research and testing. The problem I see on a phone screen is, that the buttons and fields have no name/text, so that I actually don't know what I'm clicking on. Have to speak to the guy who upgraded this forum.

Stick to what you know is working, and if I find a way to solve the problem, I'll post it here.

I thought that we had hijacked the topic 'Hurricane Irma' long enough, so I split the topic and gave it a new name. I also made it sticky, so that it is easier to find, just in case you want it.

I tried a pic from a Flickr account that I have. That didn't work. I guess it is what I said above, that the picture file name has to come last in the path. At Photobucket the file name does come last, as Kodydog found out above. I have never used Photobucket, but it sounds like a hassle to use.

To post an image, you need to have some place to upload it to the web. For those of you who have a private or company website, that shouldn't be a problem. What I do is creating a dedicated folder, at the time being I have one called 'stuff', and then I uploaded the image of the full moon to that. to display it, you need the path to it, mine is http://eikweb.com/stuff/autumn-evening2.jpg. To make it show here in this forum, you need to place the BB code bits [ img ] in front of the path, and  [ / img ] after the path. Mind you, you need to remove all the spaces! I just put them in so that the code itself displays, otherwise you wouldn't have seen it.

I did test with an image from Face book, but that didn't work. I think you need some place to upload to where all identifying path comes before the actual file name, not after, like Face book, Drop box etc..

And yes, we sometimes see the aurora borealis, or northern light, but where I live, in the south, it is not as impressive as further north.

So, finally I got an image to display here.

What I did was uploading it to my own server, and then linked to it using BB code.
It is not possible to upload images to the upholstery server, the reason might be what codydog says. I have given up investigating into it after spending hours on it last night.

If you are not familiar with the method I used to make the image display, I could try to explain it to you. I haven't yet checked if images on Facebook, Instagram etc will work. I may try.

I have searched for a way to publish images. In the settings it says 'path not found'.
Then I tried uploading an image to a server and with plain html to show it - no way.
Tried bulletin board code - nada.
Tried php - zilch.

I understand your frustration over not being able to post images. I'll see if I can find a way.
