Site Permissions

Postby Scottish » Mon Aug 08, 2005 6:19 pm

One particular IP address of a guest user seems to be logged in permanently and accessing areas they shouldn't be able to. I'm not technically qualified enough to know if this is dangerous or not but I'm not prepared to take any chances so I've altered the site permissions so that in future only registered members will be able to read the posts.

There's a fair chance it's a search engine spider.

I've not used phpbb for ages so I cannae mind how the admin side of things log them.

I'm not so sure.

I tried to trace the IP and it came up as blueyonder

Okay. After a few months I think it's reasonably safe to relax things somewhat so all posts can now be read by anyone though only registered members will be able to post.
