SMF 2.0.x Support / Re: Fake guests, bots and login attempts
« Last post by Kiriakos GR on Today at 07:37:31 AM »
I did IP ban due my forum to 3000 IP, all of them get the  famous nag message SORRY you cannot register ... YOU ARE BANNED for EVER.

SMF this is strong enough to handle sever thousands members, by the same engine YOU can push away several thousands unwanted IPs too. 

Cpanel IP Block, is a known problematic app about handling large htaccess files.
Cpanel team does not do anything to improve  IP Block module, I did personally reported the issue on their Forum. 

Cpanel those days tripled their pricing per month,  I am now switching hosting server and  the new one will not using Cpanel.
Some people keep spreading misinformation that htaccess file can crash a server,  these are trash in worth comments.
When and if  Cpanel -> IP Block module starts malfunctioning, it will start blocking and non listed IPs .

Regional firewall block this is also a stupid idea,  several thousands Europeans and Americans they are now located and working in China.
SMF 2.0.x Support / Member id 1 not previously loaded by loadMemberData
« Last post by heusdens on Today at 01:32:52 AM »

My error log is filling up with the following errors (in the thousands):

512: loadMemberContext(): member id 1 not previously loaded by loadMemberData()

When I do a query against this member it finds zero posts. 

I initially updated the php version but the errors weren't showing initially.  Thereafter the only thing I changed was the forum theme (using Sunrise):

Could a theme be doing this? What other troubleshooting can be done?

Any ideas?

Yes install your other mods one at a time until you find the culprit.
I know a admin owner of a small forum (4k members & approx 50k posts) who actually disabled his PM system due to some female members being harassed. Most people on the forum were using the PM system genuinely. However the owner decided to punish everyone. The negative affect of which meant the forum began to suffer from inactivity.

I would probably just add a simply Buddy system (whereby members can choose who can send'em dic pics/ PM's. Also devs might want to think about adding defaults options to protect users as soon as they register. Later members can adjust those privacy options to suit them.

Thanks, mod works well on 2.0.15.

Mr Twix's issue doesn't make any sense to me.
My recommendation would have been to remove the mod, and if not fixed try checking the database manually to try clearing up where the numbers are not adding up.
SMF 2.1.x Support / Re: Bug? All day calendar events shown on previous date
« Last post by Arantor on Yesterday at 04:29:29 PM »
The only valid solution is to handle all day events as a special case and don't tie them to timezone because I assure you trying to fudge it with the 'do it at midday rather than midnight' would seriously break if I tried to use this at work - given that in any given day, I'm in the UK, I talk to people in New Zealand (+12/+13), and no amount of tweaking is going to fix that an all day event needs to be handled differently.

However... events tied to hours need to be treated with timezones and no amount of arguing is going to change that fact, even for regional events, because you *have* to implement timezones for that. Especially if your event is in Arizona, US. Or Ohio. Or any of the other places where you can drive for 10 minutes and change timezone and where the time matters.

Sure it is correct if everything is set up correctly - I have not said otherwise.
What I said was that if my timezone (as a user or even admin) is not set correctly, it takes more time to find the error when 4th of july happen on 3rd of july, as it is not an expected behaviour for a 1 hour wrong offset.

If you select it as large text, you can even set the size of the text box...
