  • crawdaddy added a new discussion topic Spam emails from group members in the group Elgg Technical Support
    2 days ago I received the following email... no-reply no-reply@elgg.orgHide To   You have a new message from akiva. It reads:         Hello, Am Miss...
    • There was no spam email sent to your mail account directly from the spammer.

      Instead the following happened:

      1. The spammer registered an account here on the community site,
      2. The spammer sent you (and maybe other site members) a private message here on-site (in no way knowing your mail address),
      3. Default notification settings of the community site is to send the member an email notification if a new private message arrived on-site,
      4. You and maybe others got this notification,
      5. Spam detection (or a site member reporting the spammer) resulted in the account used for spamming with private messages was banned/deleted.
      6. When you visited the community site looking for the spam account it was already dealt with.

      Of course, it would be cool if the spammers would get identified before they spam. Unfortunately, you can only identify them reliably if they already have done something wrong. Fortunately, it happens very seldomly that the site message system is misused and members' email addresses are definitely not fetched.

    Thank you mr iionly for the rss help. Just to say, I actually use 10 of your plugins and they work fine. As for the uservalidationbyemail, due to my frustration I didnt explain myself properly. It did sorta work but then it... view reply

      Coming soon Elgg 3...

      Invitation code in your PM already ;)

    • I think you haven't fully understood what I was trying to say...

      I was trying to explain that BOTH the Uservalidationbyemail AND the Aalborg theme plugin are indeed bundled plugins. And being both bundled plugins (forget about the plugin version numbers for these...) they should work together without causing issues like the one you describe.

      I suspect it's rather ANOTHER plugin (NOT bundled with Elgg core) that might cause the problem with the registration page / validation emails. Or it's some other kind of config that might be not fully correct. That's why I suggested to make sure that all 3rd party plugins you have installed are really compatible with the Elgg version you use. For testing purposes you could temporarily disable all 3rd party plugins and test if the account registration is stil not fully working. You could also look into the error log on the server to see if there's anything logged that might indicate what the problem might be.

    • Howdy Mr iionly. I got the  Uservalidationbyemail plugin working. I did as you suggested. I disabled all 3rd party plugins then enabled and checked each one. after a couple hours of that, I decided to take a break and work on tweeking the pages. In opening other files (such as view/default/pages) to do my tweeks I came across a 2nd file named  Uservalidationbyemail. I was like "what the hell is that doing there." I decided to run a search of the file thru my system and lo and behold there was 3 more copies of the Uservalidationbyemail plugin. So 5 total copies including the one in the MOD file. I deleted them all then reinstalled plugin back in MOD file. I searched the system to see if the issue occurred again. I found no other copies so I tested the plugin and every thing worked just fine. I have no idea how 4 copies of the plugin got into 4 different files since its part of the bundle so I just wrote it off as a twilight zone thing. lol   

      I also took care of the RSS issue. With that said, The Swamp is up and functioning properly so I would like to thank iionly and RvR for all their support assistance in the issues I was having.

      If youre a person that likes fishing, feel free to join The Swamp. Its free (plus I could use some members LOL)  http://crawdaddytraps.x10host.com/community/      Later Y'all
