Help! People can't register for my forum...
« on: December 03, 2017, 04:49:28 am »
As the title suggests there seems to be an issue with the regerstraion and I don't know what it is.


A friend tried to join last night and said that he had trouble so I thought that I would go see if it was something on his side or if there was a bigger issue so I tried to create another account - all went well for a time, I was able to agree to the terms and conditions, I filled out my details nicely and clicked the captcha but then when I said register is said that I wasn't allowed to.


Any suggestions?

Take a screensot of the exact error message. I need to see the wording.

What email address are you using?
That would mean you are listed on http://stopforumspam.com for your email.

I thought that I was useing the email that I created for the forum (a gmail.com account with the forum name).


How do I fix it?

Try another email? That would be odd if that happened on a new email.

I also found that if you use a VPN to hide you IP address is will bring up same error message, so just disconnect whilst you join
