General Support / Re: IP Address Spoofing
« on: May 06, 2019, 01:57:16 am »
I've done the password change and the other Admin is trustworthy. Guests can view the gallery but they have zero permission to do anything else there. Guests cannot even delete there own posts on my forum!


Can you tell me how to get these hacked images unhacked?


Hit the modify key on my post and you will see what I am talking about with these hacked images.

« on: May 06, 2019, 01:38:54 am »
I have only one computer. I have no cell phone. I have no wireless anything. I checked that I had no other browser open to my forum on May 1, 2019 at the time the hacker spoofed my IP address. It was a hacker trying to get into the forum. I know this because I was not even logged in to the forum when the "Guest" arrived minutes before I did.


I have reported the spoofer to Norton, as well. I have Norton Internet Security and a lousy sense of humor.



The hacker will have his hands full because I now have Norton's VPN running. My IP address is dynamic and my ISP uses a proxy server.


That won't stop the hackers from trying to mess up my forum, however. Today they locked my "Hydrocarbon Crooks Evil Actions" Topic. Now only Admins can post there (There is no way available way for an Admin to unlock a locked thread, as I have vented about here before).


I have done nothing to lock the topic, but this showed up when I made a reply today: Warning: topic is currently/will be locked! Only Admins and moderators can reply.

I quickly split the topic to a new "unlocked" topic thread and told the anonymous hacker that I would do that again and again, no matter how much trouble he would try to cause.


Here is an example of the "fun and games" I am being visted with:


Look at the two images below (that are there but DO NOT SHOW):









This is the code for the two images (without the formatting):


http://www.createaforum.com/gallery/renewablerevolution/3-031014141830.png


http://renewablerevolution.createaforum.com/gallery/renewablerevolution/3-031014020143.png



Those images showed a Giant Tick/rig with Exxon written on it on planet Earth and the Caption: " Frack this Planet, We ain't done Yet!" The moon is shown shedding a tear in one and the other has a closeup of Earth.

I have backups of most of my images but, sadly, not these two.

I just noticed when modifying this post that I can "copy image address" of the images that don't display. The first one has this address:

https://support.createaforum.com/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.createaforum.com%2Fgallery%2Frenewablerevolution%2F3-031014141830.png&hash=a54d8a71cca0f382d208c868ad5148ab

The second one has this address:
https://support.createaforum.com/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Frenewablerevolution.createaforum.com%2Fgallery%2Frenewablerevolution%2F3-031014020143.png&hash=cc2201639894f9d0f9606a97d9bc2bf1

My gallery is being steadily hacked so the images won't show that criticize the Fossil Fuel Insdustry. NONE of the other images have ever been hacked, so you know who is doing the dirty work there. I have 1,775 images in the gallery. They occupy 23 pages. BUT, when you get to page 16, NO MORE IMAGES SHOW!


Can you help recover all these images? It gets old having to search for images in my computer to create a new image of. I do the best I can to keep up with the hacker(s), but old posts with said images that they hacked no longer have the impact they had, thanks to the hackers. I post on disqus many images and the hackers are steadily making my posts incoherent because the image is often used as a reference.

I have resorted to creating new images in the Admin area so, hopefully, the hacker cannot get to them. Nevertheless, I would love to recover all the images in my gallery that no longer show AND make the gallery hacker proof as well.


I want people to see and use those images for the good of humanity. We are in an Existential Catastrophic Climate Change Crisis and every bit of truth that challenges the biosphere destroying dirty energy status quo is important and necessary.


Please HELP! Greta Thunberg would agree!

General Support / IP Address Spoofing
« on: May 01, 2019, 11:07:12 pm »
I just observed this and got a screenshot of it.



The spoofer left within seconds of me checking to see who was online. The IP address of the guest was IDENTICAL to mine! I have no other computers in my home.




As you can read from above, I have had images, particularly those that criticize the hydrocarbon hellspawn fossil fuel Industry, fail to display, even though the code for a given image has not changed. I have also noticed images that I have previously "approved" to appear "not approved" a few days later whn I check my images in the gallery.support

Do I have to go to my ISP and ask for a new IP address? Should I be worried about this? Yes, someone obviously can spoof my IP address, but does that mean they can attack my computer? support

Despite having spoofed my IP address, I don't think they can Log into my Forum (or any place else I log into) unless they have figured out my (VERY LONG AND COMPLEX) password for the Forum (and all other websites I visit).support

Do you have any advice for me on how to keep my images from being hacked and whether this IP address spoofing is dangerous to me?

The icon at the bottom I believe is just a legend doesn't mean whole board is locked. Each post would have a lock icon

👀

I don't recall seeing it there before. At any rate, it appears that anyone can read and reply to a post. 👍 👍 👍


There is no locked symbol on any topic so I guess I'm okay for now.


Thank you for your help. 💐 🌞


I have trimmed down the board permissions to the bare minimum (read and reply to posts and attachments allowed).


I have the permissions set as the default for all 11 (I forgot I had added a new board) boards.

Okay, I'll do that and get back to you.


I just tried something that worked on a supposedly locked board. I have the permissions set so guests can view and post. So, I tried posting as a guest anonymously. It worked! 😀


Now I'll try what you sugggested on the boards.

I have seen this happen before. You are going to have check board level permissions, Permission profiles. Other than that I don't know.
Try editing the post and setting it to unlocked


Thank you for your response. 👍



Okay. I'll try that. I hasten to add that I did that before a few months ago. I split the thread to a new board, as well as a new topic. I then laboriously transferred about a year's worth of posts (posted prior to the split) to the new topic. I then deleted the locked topic.  That worked for a while.


Now, the hacker decided to lock everything. 😠


I have recently gone through all the board level permissions and stripped out any and all moderator privileges so even a moderator cannot modify or even moderate other people's posts. I also downgraded all moderators to member status.


I even took away the power to delete their own posts from members and guests, though of course, I still have the permissions set for them to view and post on all the boards and topics (which is now useless for posting because everything is locked by the hacker 😟).


At the moment, nobody is supposed to be able to moderate or modify posts or lock a topic but the Admin.


Here's a screenshot of one of the boards that is locked.





ALL my boards have this lock symbol indicating all the topics are locked. 😡


I wish the Admin had the power to just right click on the locked topic symbol to unlock it. Splitting a thread to allow posting works if you do not have some Hydrocarbon Hellspawn 🐉🦕🦖😈 watching to lock it after you have gone through all the work to transfer the posts.


That said, if you can provide me with a software tool where I can, after creating a new board with all the same topics that were locked, transfer quickly all the data, I could stay ahead of my detractors for a while.

Woe is me. I have received no answer from this support site on the above serious issue.





WHY can't I, as an ADMIN, unlock a locked topic?


I have been running my forum for FIVE YEARS. I post an average of 5 posts a day. I have had as many as 52 guests and recently I have had over 10 guests two or three days a week.


All those people see your ads. YOU have an incentive to help me out on this locked topic hacking I am being subjected to.


I will give you a month to either fix this or enable some Admin feature that can unlock a locked topic. If you do not help, I will, despite my reticence to have to move thousands of posts to a new site, be forced to say goodbye to Create A Forum.


Have a nice day.

General Support / Re: As a Admin Unable To Delete Posts
« on: January 07, 2015, 12:25:47 am »
I'm an admin and I have the same problem. As an Admin, I CAN wipe out an entire board but the topics within it can only be deep sixed by date expirations. that's wrong because I have old topics I want to keep and some newer ones I want to eliminate. But I can't. When I try to delete the posts within a topic instead, I get "an error occurred only the admin can delete this post!". But I'm logged in as the Admin!

Bugs / Inadvertent Double Header or tiled Headers
« on: November 10, 2013, 04:45:09 am »
I guess this isn't really a bug because it easily dealt with but it's kind of tricky so I'll pass it on to others. It may save them some grief.

If you place more than one image in the NEWS widget, the software doesn't know what to do with the second one so it tiles the header (you get two headers, one above the other with the two images you put in the news widget).

I say it is tricky because I thought this was caused by some CSS repeat type command in the style. The style CAN be modified to tile a header but, in this case, you can keep from having more than one header (a duplicate) hogging your layout by avoiding inputting more than one picture in the news widget.

General Support / Page hits count
« on: November 06, 2013, 02:51:04 am »
Hi. I am a new Admin in a new "Create A Forum" forum. My Admin at a previous "Create A Forum" site got a little tired of me generating too much posting material and volunteered to set me up with another forum. All well and good.
But here is the comment he made that makes me think some settings may not be quite correct:
" With this new system, members can now manage their OWN Forums under their OWN rules free from my "ADMIN: Power of GOD on a Forum"  ability here on the Diner Forum.

The main Downsides here are that because these Forums are separate entities, you can't do a single search to find something, plus of course you ALSO have to register separately on these other Forums.  Also, Messages posted to any of the linked forums will not appear in the Diner list of recent comments or on the diner Blog either.  Also, Agelbert has to manage his own Forum."

So what is the problem?
My corner of the Doomstead Diner forum (Agelbert's NEWZ channel http://www.doomsteaddiner.net/forum/index.php?topic=559.1410) is getting over a 100 page views a day. :o MOST of the posts I publish there are teasers with links to my own forum,  http://renewablerevolution.createaforum.com/index.php . I post news and opinion pieces about 5 to 8 times a with only one or two NOT having links to my forum. Furthermore, my page views at the Algelbert NEWZ Channel are going up each day, not down.
YET, the articles in MY forum that I link to don't show hardly any page views. ??? This doesn't make sense because more and more people are clicking on my NEWZ channel, obviously because they liked the content, only to find teasers to my own forum. If they weren't happy with that (deciding NOT to click on the links), my NEWZ channel page traffic would be dropping, not going up.
Could it be that the Create A Forum site I Admin is not getting a page hit count when someone comes there straight from the OTHER Create A Forum site because of some setting?
Finally, to provide evidence for my view that the problem is at http://www.doomsteaddiner.net/forum/index.php?topic=559.1410, I did get about 70 hits at http://renewablerevolution.createaforum.com/geopolitics/the-anti-demcratic-elite-fix-was-in-from-the-very-start-of-the-usa/ in one day from an article I linked to the Common Dreams Web site in the comments section about one of the Founding Fathers of the US Constitution. That proves the page counting works just fine coming from another web site.
Could you check into this? I really believe the folks on my original forum are reading my stuff but it is not getting counted for some reason.
NOTE: I have http://renewablerevolution.createaforum.com/index.php WIDE open as far viewing and posting on boards from guest on up so there is ZERO impediment for someone dropping by to click on a topic in a board.
Thank you.
