go to your admin panel, then maintenance tab. select fine and repair all errors. this will fix all the errors on the forum.

This mod changes statistics where user online information is built, if adk portal is not using it or doing their own calculation then it will not show fake guests/ user in their portal block.

I don't know if this is still being worked on or not (oh I hope it is!) but I know that one of the features you were wanting to add was "real" profiles.  Well while trying to find a random name generator for the users I created I came across this site:

Code: [Select]
http://www.fakenamegenerator.com/
I was thinking that somehow scraping it or using it somehow to backfill the profiles might be a way forward for you?  Just a thought.

Its admin area is hooks based, I am not sure if its available in RC4 or not, looks like its not there so its not working.

Ricky,

Thanks for the mod. I have used it for the first 2 months of my forum and I believe it has really helped. For the last month I have only showed 8 fake guests. My forum is busy enough that I removed the mod now.

Is there anyway to remove the link on my smf "credits" page as well?

Thanks again!

Nice to know it helped your forum, you simply uninstall mod and it should remove that.

Ricky this mod should be "our dirty little secret" so who use this mod want to hide the use of him, but you put your copyright and specified too clear that is fake users mod installed, was understand if was for "back-link" but to specify ? :(

So if you click the first SMF copyright from the footer is so clearly specified.... ugly...

I attach a picture to see ....

Its still secret, how many of even actual users of SMF knows that clicking that link sends you to credit page?

Well, it just means it's even easier to spot when a forum is lying to its users - or at least get proof when you already suspect it to be the case.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

would it be possible to code in something so when a user clicks there name on the online list it says something like, "you are not allowed to view this profile" ?
