    Currently, I've got several Google crawlers on my site all within the IP range and misidentified as guests:

    Here's a few of their IPs:

    Just gets confusing trying to identity genuine guests on my site.

    Can there be a better way for the software to identity bots rather than keep misidentifying them as guests all of the time.

    At any one time, the software correctly identifies one of the Google's bots on my site and marks them as such, but ignores all the other instances of Google. Google use the same IP ranges, so how hard can it be for the software to correctly identity all instances of Google and the other bots?


    Hi all,

    I want to clean up my member's list and delete all the spammers on the list so that only genuine members are shown on the list. If I delete the accounts of all the spammers, will that also delete all their IPs and email addresses' from the software too? If it does, does anyone know how I can just have a list of genuine members on my site, a "clean" list as it were? Is there a way to hide spammers from the member's list?

    How do others here deal with spammers and their details?

    Many thanks


    It's been reported to me that some URLs which contain commas are not displaying as proper links on my site. I've just done a test on this site and received the same result. Here's an example:'s_Church,_Broadwater

    If I create a link using the toolbar, then this URL works fine:'s_Church,_Broadwater

    The issue is not consistent. Only some pages with commas don't work, not all. Here's one that does work:,_Drive-Ins_and_Dives

    So far, the only reports I've received are about wikipedia pages. Could there be a conflict in links that have both apostrophes and commas?



    I would like to remove spammers from my list of members, so it only shows genuine members. I don't want to delete the spammer's IP, email and other details, in case they seek to rejoin my forum, just remove them from my list of members. Is this possible?

    Many thanks

    Can the list of reported items have a complete overhaul and use the standard view and filter options that the rest of the forum now uses?

    My suggestions, as crudely shown in the above picture:

    1. Add a Reported By/Reporter column - this is to easily identify who has reported the content. Perhaps with their avatar too??

    2. Add a filter option - like in the main forum.

    3. Eliminate the sidebar - like option two, this would create a uniform view of content.

    Thank you

    The above image shows the bottom of a report I received recently, but as you can see that while there is a space to insert internal mod comments, there is nowhere to actually reply to the person who made the report. Can this please be added?

    Thank you

    When a URL is inserted into content and that URL exists on its own line within the content, we will "unfurl" it to a richer preview which includes the page title, metadata logo, description and favicon. Such rich previews add more context for users as to what the link contains. URL unfurling can be used anywhere that accepts BB code currently.

    The functionality is enabled by default, but you can switch it off if you want to in the "Messages" section of the Admin CP

    Most of the time I am pasting links from news websites and posting the first paragraph from those sites, but this feature would automate all of that and would be a massive time saver and enable faster content creation.

    Can it please be considered for WoltLab?

    Thank you

    Delete User’s Content

    The best protection against spam might not be enough in rare situations and a spammer might start new threads, posts on existing threads, or comment on events and images. Deleting the content of a user is now much easier: The user list in the admin panel offers a new “Delete User’s Content” option that opens a dialog in which you can select the content to delete

    This is needed, but I think what was requested was a "one click" stop spammer option, which not only deleted the spammer's content, but banned the spammer at the same time. Could that be considered, please?

    After I have moved threads to the trash, I apply the filter to only show the deleted threads, I then select them all and then delete them. But once I've deleted them, I get a error message as shown in the first pic. Well, as you can see, it's not a error message, just the text not displaying correctly. Only after I've refreshed the page, does the text display correctly.

    Not sure what's going on, but here's the pics:

    Error message after filtered threads permanently deleted:

    After page refresh, error page cleared and text now being displayed correctly:
