Did look around this support page but can't determine if I can use the repair_settings.php in my SMF 1.1.21 forum.

xx Unusually large number of new members registering --- seems bogus

September 11, 2017, 12:40:22 PM by ar3thur
Our forum has been offline for a few years and we've just updated it prior to upgrading shortly and brought it back online.  We used to see a few new members a week or possibly one or two a day at the very peak of popularity.  Now, even though not many know that we are back online, we are getting dozens and dozens of new member registrations, many of which seem suspicious and not genuine.  Registration is set up for member activation to prevent invalid email addresses, so it's not that.  Plus, almost none of the new members has posted anything and the few that have seem to be posting offers for things to be purchased.

Any ideas why this might be happening and how we can make sure that new member registrations are really real?

xx Install Separate Copy of 1.1.18 on Server That Has 2.0.14 Running

September 08, 2017, 12:05:39 PM by taysys
My ISPs server with 1.1.18 running crashed and don't know if we can get the latest database back.  So to help my users I set up a temporary GoDaddy server and had 2.014 installed through their wizard.  It's running fine, well mostly.  Can't modify category names but that's a known and is a separate subject.

So to see if I can get the old forum to come up after the ISP gets a new drive installed or the original one recovered, I restored an older copy of the DB in a separate database on GD.  Then copied over a clean set of 1.1.18 files into a different directory and tried to run the install.php.  Nothing happens, there is just a white screen.

First, can this be done?  If so what am I doing wrong?

Thanks for any assistance in advance.

solved News Box not fading

September 07, 2017, 05:51:50 PM by ivanr
The news box fade out has been working for years and now it has stopped working in Firefox.
In I.E. / Edge fade out is working normally

Is there any thing in the settings in Firefox I can do, or do I need to add some code to the forum.
I am not a PHP programmer so any detailed code if required and where to put it would be much appreciated.
